Ultherapy® provides a noninvasive method for treating skin laxity and sagging that comes with age.
What is Ultherapy?
Dr. Cui uses Ultherapy to address the signs of aging. Gravity and time have a negative effect on your skin, leading to sagging and volume loss. Lax skin looks delicate, crepey, and wrinkled.
The ultrasound treatment stimulates your body’s own healing powers to lift skin while smoothing visible lines and wrinkles.
How does Ultherapy work?
During Ultherapy, ultrasound, or sound waves, penetrate deep beneath your dermis to promote collagen production. Collagen is a major skin protein that promotes skin strength and elasticity.
What areas can Ultherapy treat?
Ultherapy addresses lax skin where it is most visible. Specific treatment areas may include:
- Under the chin
- Chest and décolleté
Dr. Cui assesses your skin complaints to create a customized Ultherapy treatment plan.
How is Ultherapy unique?
Ultherapy is noninvasive and carries no risk of infection. The procedure requires no creams, incisions, or stitches. Plus, you don’t have to spend a lot of time recovering after a session.
Ultherapy, unlike lasers, uses sound energy that bypasses your skin’s surface. The waves reach more deeply than laser heat energy to stimulate collagen to restore skin firmness and tone.
Ultherapy, therefore, provides superior lifting results at the foundation of your skin to make it smoother and firmer.
Do I need to schedule downtime following Ultherapy?
No. You don’t need any downtime following the completely noninvasive Ultherapy sessions. Each treatment lasts 60-90 minutes and may cause some slight redness that resolves within a few hours.
How long does it take to see results from Ultherapy treatments?
Patients report noticing an immediate glow following ultrasound treatment. Optimal results, however, appear within 2-3 months as your body regenerates collagen.
Dr. Cui can help you understand what effects you’ll notice, depending on your skin type and the severity of sagging and wrinkling, as well as the number of treatments you need for optimal skin lifting results.
