What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin.
The only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas, Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin-including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift-without disturbing the surface of the skin.
With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.
You can go about your day after a single, 60-90 minute in-office procedure. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time-much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).
Results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months, including lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.
Are You a Candidate?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has “relaxed” to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Sagging skin on the eyelids, on the neck or under the chin, for instance, are often the first signs of “maturing” skin. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.
While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. There are also younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery. Read more FAQs here
More than one way to “lift” a neck
A neck that wrinkles and puddles is one of the biggest humiliations of aging. When the late Nora Ephron wrote, “I Feel Bad about My Neck,” the title alone was enough to get the attention of baby boomers. For so many, a sagging neck signals old age.
Not only is a sagging neck difficult to camouflage with makeup, but it is also more resistant to improvement with diet, exercise and sun avoidance. Neck skin seems to age more rapidly than facial skin.Philly.com interviewed plastic surgeons and patients about different approaches to improving the neck.
Sixty-four year old Walter Dowgiallo owns a company that creates the labels and packaging for companies like Victoria’s Secret, Liz Claiborne and Bath & Body Works. Dowgiallo, very concerned with his image because of his business, was bothered by “this little thing under my chin. Six years ago, a Cambridge, Massachusetts plastic surgeon “lifted” his neck and ever since then Dowgiallo has felt “spectacular.”
