What could Ultherapy look like on you?

Ultherapy is the only procedure available that is non-invasive but can still give the appearance of the facial lift you want without using any chemicals.

FDA-cleared Ultherapy

Ultherapy uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime.

The Non-invasive Lift

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest!

Safe Ultrasound. No Surgery.

Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in more than 350,000 treatments worldwide.

Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.

 

Builds New Collagen

The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

No Toxins or Needles

Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.

No Downtime. Natural Results.

Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2-3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Just a Single Treatment

Just one non-invasive Ultherapy® treatment helps counteract the effects of time, gravity and sun exposure without downtime.

The first thing you will want to do is schedule a one-on-one consultation with an Ultherapy provider. During this session, your practitioner will address your concerns, assess your skin and determine if you are a candidate for the treatment.Once you book your Ultherapy® procedure, you won’t need to follow any special preparations or skincare regimens in advance of the treatment. To enhance your comfort, your practitioner may recommend that you take an over-the-counter or prescribed medication before the treatment.
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, your Ultherapy practitioner will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin.Next, your provider will use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to first see deep within the skin to determine optimal placement of the treatment energy, and then deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface. During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours.Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin.As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.

What is unique about Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. Ultherapy is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.

With the addition of the new Ultherapy® Décolletage Treatment, Ultherapy is also now the only non-invasive procedure specifically indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.

Can Ultherapy replace a face lift?

Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a facelift. Ultherapy is a great alternative, however, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

How does Ultherapy different from laser treatments?

Ultherapy uses sound energy – tried-and-true ultrasound – which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.

Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.

Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they’re actually very compatible.

How does Ultherapy stimulate the creation of collagen?

Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultherapy doesn’t involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.

How long does an Ultherapy® treatment take?

The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 90-120 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

Will I need to take time off?

With Ultherapy, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.

What does the Ultherapy® treatment feel like?

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.

When will I see results? How long do they last?

After your Ultherapy® Treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.

How many Ultherapy® treatments will I need?

Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.

Are there any side effects?

The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.

FDA-Approved

Ultherapy is FDA approved to lift everything from eyebrows to your neck and even the troublesome extra tissue that collects around the chin. The FDA particularly cleared Ultherapy to improve décolletage wrinkles for a younger and tighter look to your skin.

Get the Look You Want Without Invasive Procedures

If you are looking to re-imagine your appearance and rejuvenate your skin back to a younger state, Ultherapy can work wonders. It has been used extensively in the field of medicine by doctors and professional athletes as a safe yet effective alternative to surgery.

Ultherapy utilizes the latest ultrasound technology to enhance features around the core facial structure with a focus on collagen boosting. Collagen is the primary contributor to a firm facial structure. The goal of Ultherapy isn’t to take the place of a facelift but rather to achieve similar results in a non-invasive format.

No Harmful Chemicals

Ultherapy can reduce the characteristics that are synonymous with aging without the use of lasers or surgery. Other technologies such as radio frequency are no match for the noninvasive treatment Ultherapy offers.

Get Results Naturally

If you are wondering if there are negative side effects, the answer is no, due to the natural foundation that Ultherapy is based upon. Even though it does not use surgery, Ultherapy can go deeper than the outer dermal layers by delivering ultrasound energy with pinpoint accuracy.

Same Day Recovery without Needles

By applying Ultherapy with ultrasound technology, exact points can be targeted with a tried and tested temperature to trigger a natural event in the body that jump-starts the process of regenerating brand new collagen.

One Treatment Can Achieve Massive Results

To get started, a scheduled one-on-one consultation at Great Skin Ohio can put you on the path to the perfect body. Painless ultrasound gel and the right placement allows the revolutionary technology to be applied to just the right layers. A quick ultrasound imaging session can determine the ideal location you’ll want to target with the treatment.

How to Begin with Ultherapy

Schedule an appointment with Great Skin Ohio to start the process today. Ultherapy will enhance your body’s natural collagen-building processes. While it is not painful, a slight tingling sensation is common. The exact time it takes to administer your custom treatment can vary depending on which particular area is being treated. A face procedure can take up to 60 minutes and in some cases 90 minutes, but you will see results right away and there will be no painful recovery time associated with surgery.

The Process

Ultherapy applicators will cleanse the local area where the custom treatment is needed the most and an ultrasound gel will help identify exactly where that ideal location is. Some individuals even find the process invigorating as the sensation can have a rejuvenating effect that lasts a short while during the energy delivery process. You can expect to be feeling normal and back to your daily routine within 24 hours.

Some signs that the process is working include lighter colored skin or the skin feeling flushed. There can also be a slight reddening to the skin directly after the treatment but the side effects are minimal compared to traditional treatments involving chemicals, needles, or outright surgery. Other reported side effects include tingling or minor swelling or tenderness. This is very normal and is nothing to be concerned about.
