Ultherapy® is a revolutionary non-surgical lifting technology! Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment to lift the skin on the neck, chin, cheeks and brow.
Ultherapy® uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin without downtime. Ultherapy® is the only treatment of its kind that enables our Poughkeepsie cosmetic surgeons to see deep into the structures of your skin to deliver ultrasound energy for a lift without surgery. Never before have plastic surgeons been able to deliver energy and see exactly where that energy is being delivered.
Good Candidates for Ultherapy®
If you are have sagging skin around your eyes, neck or jaw line but are undecided about a facelift, Ultherapy® may be the right choice for you! The Ulthera treatment is a non-surgical solution that produces the tight, toned skin you’re looking for.
Ultherapy is ideal for patients with:
- Loose skin around the neck or eyes
- Flattening in the cheek area
- Creases around the mouth (nasolabial area)
- “Marionette” lines from the mouth to the chin
- A downturned mouth
- Jawline flabbiness
- Loose jowls
How Does Ultherapy work?
The doctor places the Ulthera applicator on your face. Both you and your doctor will see an image of the tissue beneath the surface, just as you’ve seen on sonograms. Using the same hand piece, ultrasonic waves are delivered below your skin’s surface without harm or discomfort. Your skin will contract right away and over time, your skin’s response to the treatment will create more collagen growth. This collagen growth ultimately results in a gradual tightening, creating a natural lift.
One treatment will stimulate your collagen to grow for about two to three months, during which time you’ll see your skin tighten and lift. FDA trials on Ultherapy® showed that 90% of patients had a noticeable, significant lift in the treated areas.
Recovery from Ultherapy®
There is no recovery time required from Ultherapy® treatment. You just go back to your day’s schedule and over time, watch your skin become tighter!
