Ultherapy: A Non-Invasive Option For Skin Tightening

If you’ve noticed lines appearing on your face or wrinkles popping up on your upper chest, it’s important to know that you have options beyond surgical intervention. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive lifting procedure that has been cleared by the FDA. 

From limiting lines on the decolletagé to lifting the skin on your face, chin, and neck, Ultherapy can make you look years younger. At SculpMD in Havertown, PA, you’ll find the experts with the skill you need to rejuvenate your skin.

The Ultherapy Process

Ultherapy works by sending microfocused ultrasound deep into the skin, generating heat below the skin’s surface. This heat stimulates a natural healing response, triggering a process called neocollagenesis. 

As a result, new collagen and elastin are produced, which then tightens the skin in the treated area, producing a lifting effect.

Ultherapy is able to penetrate much more deeply than lasers or radiofrequency treatments, which means that the effects tend to last longer. 

While this can lead to some minor pain, your doctor will work with you to discuss a pain management plan. There is no downtime after an Ultherapy treatment, either, which means that you can go about your daily business without having to wait for a lengthy recovery.

Expected Results from Ultherapy

Although Ultherapy reaches deeper than other non-invasive treatments, it can’t replicate the effect of a facelift. But for patients who are not interested in an invasive surgical procedure, Ultherapy is an attractive option, providing visible results that are both natural and long-lasting.

There will always be some variations in how patients respond to cosmetic treatments. However, patients should expect to see the effects of their treatments accumulate over the course of two to three months as neocollagenesis remodels the skin. 

The best part? The final results should last up to 1-2 years following Ultherapy!

Who Should Get Ultherapy?

The ideal candidate for Ultherapy is any patient with mild to moderate skin laxity, in which the skin has started to become less firm and started to sag. 

For patients, this usually appears as:

  • Eyebrows that have lowered
  • Loose skin below the jaw or sags under the chin
  • Wrinkles or other lines on the neckline or upper chest

Before your Ultherapy treatment, your provider will consult with you to assess your skin laxity and ask about your medical history to see if there is any reason why you may not be a good candidate for the procedure. Contraindications include: 

  • Bleeding disorders 
  • Bell’s palsy
  • Medical implants in the face or chest
  • Any active infections

Your medical professional will determine whether Ultherapy is a good fit for you. If not, they’ll be happy to help you find a different treatment to help you look your best.
