Ultherapy in Las Vegas
FDA-approved Ultherapy®, also referred to as Ulthera®, is a non-surgical treatment to lift, tone and tighten sagging skin around the eyes, brow, face, under the chin and the neck area. It can also be used to smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Ultherapy® is a professional skin tightening method that uses high intensity focused ultrasound waves to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift. Collagen is stimulated by the ultrasonic waves and the heat that they provide. This can ultimately lead to improved elasticity and firmness in the skin. Ultherapy also works to trigger regeneration of healthier skin layers, providing a safe, natural lift of the skin over time. You may see a slightly tighter, firmer you right away, but the building of new collagen happens progressively over 2 to 3 months following the treatment.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR ULTHERAPY?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many people who want some facial lifting but are not ready for surgery, whether mentally, physically or financially. There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game,” as well as patients wanting an aesthetic maintenance option.
HOW IS ULTHERAPY® DONE?
During the Ultherapy procedure a smooth ultrasound device is applied to the skin to deliver low levels of focused heat to the target muscles and tissue deep beneath the skin’s surface. As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, stimulating the collagen-building process. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
Ultherapy treatments are performed by our trained, certified, experienced Ultherapy technicians.
The production of new collagen takes time, so results can become more apparent over two to three months, even up to six months. The skin in the treated area will look firmer and smoother, with fewer wrinkles. Your facial features will also look more defined with a “lifted” effect around the eyebrows, under-eye area, jaw and neck.
How long does it last?
Since the procedure stimulates a person’s own collagen production, how long the results last depends on the individual. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but the individual’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Future touch-up treatments can help provide more control over the aging process, which varies by individual.
