Meet Heather: Ultherapy Before & After Story
How it Works
Patients who experience signs of aging along the face and neck – such as wrinkles and skin laxity – may not need invasive surgical procedures or injectable treatments to achieve an effective lift and renewal of the skin. Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment designed to tighten areas of skin laxity and rejuvenate your appearance. The procedure works by using focused ultrasound waves to deliver heat deep below the surface of the skin. The heat stimulates the skin's natural collagen, helping it grow and rebuild new skin cells, resulting in a natural lift and gradual tightening. This ultimately makes the skin appear smoother and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Good candidates for Ultherapy® include patients who are showing mild to moderate wrinkles and laxity that result from a loss of firmness and elasticity in the skin.
