Do you need a lift? Are you looking in to doing something for the loose skin on your neck or jowls but are not ready to go under the knife? Ultherapy might be the treatment for you! Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment that is FDA-cleared to lift the skin on the neck and under the chin and the eyebrow. It is also newly approved to treat the lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, Dr. Mark A. Bishara and his staff along with Ultherapy can give you a more youthful, natural looking you!
How does it work?
Ultherapy uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production. The energy is specifically delivered to the same layer treated during a face lift without cutting or harming the surface of the skin. The ultrasound energy heats the layer between 60-70 degrees centigrade that triggers Neo-collagenesis.
What to expect?
Depending on the area being treated, the treatment may take 60-90 minutes to perform. Your skin will be cleansed and marked appropriately for the area to be treated. As the ultrasound energy is delivered you may feel some mild to moderate discomfort. It is recommended to take some over the counter pain relievers before your treatment and comfort levels vary from patient to patient but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered. You may have some slight redness and swelling that dissipates within a few hours. Some patients may experience tenderness and bruising that may last a few days.
How many treatments do I need?
Most patients only need one treatment. However, depending on the degree of laxity and collagen-building process, some may benefit from additional treatments. Since the aging process never stops annual touch up treatments can prolong their results.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime with Ultherapy. You are able to resume all your normal activities and skin care regimen at home.
When will I see results?
You may see some initial effects from the treatment right away but generally the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months and up to 6-9 months.
