Have you noticed skin laxity and loss of definition around your jaw and neck? Non-invasive Ultherapy® tightens skin to firm and shape these problem areas. This treatment can even be used to lift and tighten the décolletage. Ultherapy® offers a solution for those looking for skin tightening but not yet in need of surgical treatment. 

What is Ultherapy® for Skin Tightening?

Skin laxity around the neck and jawline is one of the most common and bothersome signs of aging. Ultherapy® is a non-surgical way to achieve a more sculpted, defined lower face. It uses ultrasound energy that travels into the deeper layer of the subcutaneous tissue called the SMAS fascia and up toward the derms. The heat from the ultrasound causes collagen fibers in these layers to contract over time, lifting and tightening for an anti-aging effect.

What to Expect During Ultherapy®

Your treatment session will usually take about an hour. We offer oral medication or Pro-Nox to maintain your comfort. Pro-Nox is a nitrous oxide gas mixed with oxygen (laughing gas) that you inhale as needed during the procedure, and it makes treatment fast and comfortable. Your Ultherapy® expert will move the device over your neck and jaw, and you may feel some heat, but your expert provider will ensure a positive experience. Just 20 minutes after using Pro-Nox you can safely drive home yourself.

Ultherapy® Results: What to Expect and How Long it Lasts

You can leave your Ultherapy® treatment and return to your usual activities immediately. This lack of downtime lets you fit Ultherapy® into your busy schedule

How Long Does it Take to See My Ultherapy® Results?

Full Ultherapy® results take up to six months to develop. Progress occurs gradually, and your neck and jawline look tighter and more defined. During this time, collagen fibers in your skin contract, and the cells in your dermis produce new collagen. Most people only need one Ultherapy® treatment to see results.

How Long Will My Results Last After Ultherapy®?

The collagen-tightening effects of Ultherapy® can produce long-lasting results. Many people benefit from a touch-up treatment every one to two years. Others may see results last five years or more. You can prolong your results with good skincare and sun protection. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Ultherapy®?

It is safe for all skin types and tones.  The best candidates for non-invasive Ultherapy® are in their mid-60s or younger.  Ultherapy® is recommended for those with mild to moderate skin laxity. It will not provide satisfactory results for those with severe sagging skin. Many people have Ultherapy® as part of a long-term strategy to keep their skin tight and firm. You should not have this treatment if you have scarring disorders such as keloid formation or an active skin condition such as cystic acne in the treatment area. You should not have Ultherapy if you have an electrical implant such as a pacemaker or defibrillator.

I have been seeing Dr. Krauss for probably eight years and my boys all see other doctors in the practice. They are thorough, nice, timely, have a great staff, and really keep our skin looking great. If you are curious about cosmetic procedures they offer everything under the sun and never push you to do things. Highly recommended.
