Collagen-promoting treatments are popular as women and men lose skin elasticity with age. One of the options, besides injectable treatments, for stimulating collagen growth is Ultratherapy. Ultratherapy is an FDA-approved treatment to non-surgically tighten the skin. It’s the only device approved by the FDA to tighten the skin to give you natural-looking results.
How Does Ultratherapy Work?
Ultratherapy uses high-focused and intense ultrasound energy to heat the tissue below the skin to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. The effect will improve lines and wrinkles so they’re no longer existent. It’s a popular treatment for loose skin and wrinkles on the face, neck, jawline, and chest. It’s also a well-known treatment for “turkey neck”. “Turkey neck” happens when the skin loses elasticity in the neck creating a double chin or wrinkled, sagging skin. It’s similar to our Kybella treatment, check out our results!
A face and neck treatment can take between 60 to 90 minutes. Times will vary depending on the area treated. The Ultratherapy device uses ultrasound imaging to find the optimal temperature that will produce collagen production. In short, it tricks the body into creating more collagen to regain the lost firmness of the skin. It’s common to have some tenderness in the areas treated. In fact, it’s good to have residual soreness! It means you’re producing more collagen. Plus, the soreness doesn’t last long, it can be as little as a few hours to a max of a few weeks afterward. And it’s not so detrimental that it stops patients from continuing their daily activities.
Benefits of Ultratherapy
Anyone can have the treatment because Ultratherapy can be used on all skin types and tones. Speaking of treatment, it’s so effective that most clients only need one treatment to see natural-looking results. The treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical so there are few side effects and downtime. Plus, you can see improvements almost immediately because the heat from the Ultratherapy contracts the existing collagen fibers. This will promote new collagen growth in three to six months, so you’ll see longer-term benefits. A 2019 study found that 85% of patients who used Ultratherapy to treat sagging in the midface and lower face were satisfied with their results.
It Delays Facelift Surgery
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a facelift is about $8,000. A treatment of Ultratherapy is a third of the cost and provides 10-20% of a facelift result since these results are more subtle and natural-looking. Our Ultratherapy consultation is only $100 and that deposit will be deducted from your treatment if you book an Ultratherapy treatment on the same day!
Not only can this delay the need for a facelift, but it’s also great for patients who have already had plastic surgery and want to maintain the results. It’s also a great treatment for younger patients who want to be proactive about aging gracefully. Patients treated with Ultratherapy can avoid a facelift while having realistic and natural-looking expectations.
Who Should Get Ultratherapy?
As we stated earlier, this treatment is suitable for all skin types and tones. Age is not a huge factor for the ideal Ultratherapy patient. Instead, it comes down to skin elasticity and lack of sun damage. The ideal patient is someone in their 30s, 40s, and 50s with the beginning signs of loose skin: lowered eyebrow line, sagging neck skin, or jowls along the jawline. When you get Ultratherapy treatment early on, you’re proactive about aging and can prevent more sagging skin in the future. While Ultratherapy can be used on its own, to get optimum results, it’s best to combine it with injectable treatments or other skin lifting procedures.
