Aging is a part of life, but that doesn’t mean we have to accept wrinkles and sagging skin as inevitable. What if you could get back a youthful, firm appearance without going under the knife? That’s where Ultherapy comes in. At Wink Medical Aesthetics, this proven nonsurgical treatment can give your skin a visible lift without anesthesia or surgery.

What Is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is an innovative and nonsurgical skin tightening treatment designed to rejuvenate your appearance by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, essential fiber-like proteins that help keep our skin firm and supple. Collagen and elastin production decline with age, but Ultherapy is the first device that can specifically target the deep foundational layer of your skin without surgery or incisions to address a range of aging-related concerns that develop around the chin, neck, chest and browline.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Normally, the foundational layer of your skin is only accessible with surgery. Ultherapy uses FDA-cleared ultrasound technology to deliver energy into the deeper dermal layers, jumpstarting the body’s natural healing and regenerative capabilities. As collagen and elastin levels increase in response to treatment, the skin regains a youthful tone and fullness, resulting in a smoother, tighter and firmer appearance.

This entire Ultherapy procedure takes place without incisions or damaging the surface of the skin. It uses an advanced applicator that is precisely calibrated to deliver the perfect amount of energy at just the right temperature to stimulate new collagen and elastin growth without harming the surrounding tissues. It also used advanced ultrasound imaging, which allows us to see the exact layers of tissue we are targeting during treatment for optimal results.

Ultherapy Treatment Areas

Ultherapy uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology to lift and tighten loose skin and reduce the signs of aging. The areas that can be treated with Ultherapy include:

  1. Chin & jawline: A loss of elasticity can lead to loose skin around the chin and jawline, contributing to the appearance of jowls and a double chin. Ultherapy tightens the skin in these areas to restore more youthful contours.
  2. Neck: Ultherapy can lift and tighten loose skin around the neck, improving the appearance of wrinkles, sagging and horizontal neck bands.
  3. Browline: Sagging skin above the brows can lead to drooping that makes you look tired or grumpy. Ultherapy tightens the skin to lift the brows and reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles.
  4. Chest: Ultherapy stimulates collagen production to combat the crepey skin that can develop on the chest, restoring a more youthful décolletage.

Ultherapy is known for its ability to provide noticeable, long-lasting improvements in skin firmness and texture without anesthesia or incisions. This one-of-a-kind treatment can address a wide range of aging-related concerns by delivering ultrasound energy where you need it most, lifting the skin with remarkably natural results.

Is Ultherapy Right for Me?

Ultherapy is ideal for most men and women who’d like to rejuvenate their appearance but prefer to avoid invasive surgery. Ideal candidates are typically in their 30s, 40s or 50s with skin that has started to sag, resulting in mild-to-moderate signs of aging, such as:

  • Skin that feels less firm
  • Sagging around the chin and jawline
  • Early signs of jowls
  • Loose neck skin and wrinkles
  • Drooping brows
  • Crepe paper-like chest skin

Other factors that may make you a good candidate for Ultherapy include:

  • You want to rejuvenate your appearance without surgery
  • You have realistic expectations regarding your results
  • You’re looking to prolong or enhance the effects of other cosmetic procedures

During your initial consultation, our experienced team will evaluate your needs, concerns and skin quality to determine if Ultherapy is right for you. If you experience severe skin sagging in the face or neck, a more intensive procedure may be required to achieve your desired results. Ultherapy is an “uplift,” not a facelift, and while it is a viable option for those who aren’t ready to go under the knife, it is not a replacement for surgery.

What to Expect During Your Ultherapy Procedure

Ultherapy is a highly personalized procedure, so treatment times vary depending on the scope and size of the areas being addressed. The face and neck typically take between 60 to 90 minutes to complete, while the chest can be treated in about 30 minutes.

When you arrive for your appointment, our practitioners will cleanse your skin and apply an ultrasound gel to help the device glide smoothly across the treatment area. Then, a handheld wand will be used to deliver ultrasound energy deep into the skin, gently heating the underlying tissues to stimulate collagen production. Ultherapy contains built-in ultrasound imaging that allows precise targeting for optimal results. The intensity of your treatment can also be adjusted depending on your individual needs, goals and comfort level.

You’ll feel intense heat or a tingling sensation as the Ultherapy device deposits ultrasound energy into the deeper dermal tissues, but most patients report only mild discomfort and find that the procedure is tolerable. However, we understand that individual comfort thresholds may vary and take steps to help make the experience as pleasant as possible for you.

After your procedure, you can return home and resume your normal activities with no post-treatment restrictions. You may experience mild redness, tingling or swelling in treated areas, but these side effects are mild and typically subside within a few hours.

Your Ultherapy Results

You’ll be able to feel the skin-tightening effects of your Ultherapy treatment as soon as you leave our office. Your results will continue to develop over time as collagen and elastin production ramps up, providing you with gradual and long-lasting improvements. Your final outcome will emerge after three to six months and persist for several years. Your age, lifestyle and other factors will determine the longevity of your results, but future touch-ups can keep pace with the aging process so you can enjoy a firmer, tighter appearance longer.

Is Ultherapy Safe?

Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared device that has demonstrated its safety and efficacy in clinical studies. More than 2 million treatments have been safely performed worldwide. Additionally, ultrasound energy has a proven track record in the field of medicine and has been in use for more than 50 years.

Are There Any Side Effects Associated With Ultherapy?

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production beneath the surface of the skin without harming the surrounding tissues, so few side effects are associated with treatment. You may appear flushed or experience temporary swelling, redness or tingling immediately after your procedure, but these side effects should subside within a few hours.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The majority of patients need only one Ultherapy treatment to achieve their desired results. Those with more significant sagging or collagen loss may benefit from more than one procedure. Afterward, an occasional touch-up and good skincare habits can help you maintain a smoother, firmer and more youthful-looking appearance for years to come.

Yes, Ultherapy can be combined with other anti-aging and rejuvenation treatments to help you achieve your desired results. During your initial consultation, our team will evaluate your concerns and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
