Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening with Ulthera?

Ulthera is a completely noninvasive skin tightening treatment that minimizes wrinkles and lifts the skin. This innovative method of skin tightening uses ultrasound energy to trigger your body's own rejuvenation powers. 

If you're unhappy with your appearance due to sagging skin and other signs of aging, but you don't want to resort to a surgical solution like a facelift, Ulthera can give you excellent results without all of the drawbacks of surgery. 

What areas can skin tightening/Ulthera treat?

Ulthera skin tightening can lift, tighten, and tone the areas that show the most prominent signs of aging, including: 

  • The forehead and brow areas
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Chest

Many of these areas can sag significantly over time, but Ulthera helps to counteract the effects of gravity and, as a result, restores your youthful appearance. 

How does skin tightening with Ulthera work?

With Ulthera treatment, ultrasound waves harmlessly penetrate your surface skin to reach the dermal skin layer below. The ultrasound energy triggers your body's natural ability to make collagen, a protein that lends support and structure to your skin. 

When you notice lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, it's because of collagen loss. After the age of 20, you start to lose about 1% of your collagen every year. So, as you age, this can really affect the way you look. 

Ulthera starts the collagen production process anew, which restores the collagen lost to aging and time. As you regrow collagen, you'll notice lines and wrinkles smoothing out, reduced skin sagging, and an overall lifting effect. 

In addition, Ulthera stimulates the growth of elastin, the protein that maintains skin elasticity and tightness. Just as with collagen, you lose elastin every year as you age. But, Ulthera can restore your elastin alongside your collagen. 

The Dermatology Arts team can customize your Ulthera skin tightening treatment to maximize collagen and elastin production in the areas where you need it the most. 

When will I see results after skin tightening with Ulthera?

Your collagen and elastin production starts right away, but it takes some time to accumulate and show results in the surface layers of your skin. In general, you'll see results within 3-6 months. 

One of the biggest benefits of Ulthera skin tightening is that you'll continue producing new collagen for months after the treatment. These results can last a year or longer. 

If you'd love a younger look but don't want injections, surgery, and downtime, Ulthera could be the answer for you. Call Dermatology Arts or click on the online scheduling link now.
