Ultherapy is the only FDA approved procedure to non-surgically lift your neck, eyebrows and chin and visibly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your décolletage. It’s also known as the “Non-Invasive Lift,” and it can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest.
How does it work?
- Ultherapy uses the power of ultrasound to treat the deep layers of your skin without disturbing the surface. Ultrasound has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years and Ultherapy has been found to be safe and effective in clinical studies in more than 350,000 cosmetic procedures worldwide. The use of ultrasound enables Dr. Shah to see the layers of your skin, ensuring that the energy is delivered to where it will have the most impact.
- Ultherapy uses the imaging principles of ultrasound, but in a unique way, to firm, tone and lift your skin. A Ultherapy treatment heats small, targeted amounts of soft tissue below the surface of your skin to a point where the tissue contracts and your body begins to create new collagen.
- To achieve a significant lifting effect, the right amount of heat must be delivered to the necessary depth of your skin. Ultherapy is capable of accomplishing both, without injuring the surface of your skin.
What does it feel like?
- What you feel during treatment are tiny amounts of concentrated ultrasound energy being deposited below the surface of your skin. The heat may be fleetingly intense at times and is a positive sign that collagen building has begun.
- Any discomfort can vary, with bony areas being more sensitive. There may be temporary areas of numbness or sensitivity to touch following treatment, but most patients are immediately comfortable and experience no downtime.
During your consultation, ask Dr. Shah to discuss the various measures he will use prior to and during treatment to maximize your comfort. Most patients find that any minor discomfort experienced during treatment is well worth the results.
