Ultherapy is a popular and safe alternative to a surgical face lift – and it is now offered at Walnut Creek Skin & Laser! Our office is happy to announce that we are currently scheduling appointments for Ultherapy consultations for anyone interested in learning more about this revolutionary new, non-invasive skin tightening procedure.
Due to the increasing popularity of non-surgical skin-tightening procedures, our office frequently receives questions about Ultherapy. Here are some of the most common, along with our answers:
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy can be described as an FDA-cleared procedure that utilizes ultrasound energy to naturally tighten or lift skin around the face, eyebrows, chin and chest. It’s non-invasive and does not involve any type of surgery. Ultherapy can be an excellent alternative for anyone wishing to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on and around their face, without the need for an invasive surgical procedure.
Is it Safe?
Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared. By using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy boosts the production of collagen, which results in the appearance of lifted – or more youthful-looking skin. Essentially, Ultherapy is a procedure that encourages the body to naturally counteract the effects of time!
Are the Results the Same as a the Results of a Facelift?
Ultherapy and a facelift are two distinctly different procedures. Ultherapy does not involve any type of surgery, and a facelift does. A facelift can be described as an invasive procedure. The two procedures do not yield the same exact result. Ultherapy can be an excellent choice for anyone hoping for a rejuvenated look without the risk or downtime associated with a surgical procedure.
How Long is an Appointment?
An Ultherapy appointment is relatively short, considering the long-lasting results it provides. The length of an Ultherapy appointment depends on how many areas are being treated. Typically, an appointment lasts between one and two hours. Once the appointment is complete, it’s possible to immediately return to work or other routine activities. There is no need to rest or take the day off after an Ultherapy appointment.
How Quickly Do the Results Appear?
The results of an Ultherapy treatment are not immediate. It takes a couple of months for the body to begin producing collagen after it is treated with ultrasound. Additionally, there is not a definite length of time that the results of Ultherapy will last – since every person’s body reacts differently.
