Ulthera Skin Tightening
Ulthera skin tightening treatment is the only non-invasive option for toning loose skin on the face, neck, and under-chin area. Also called Ultherapy, this treatment works by heating tissue in order to stimulate production of collagen beneath the skin. Unique to the Ulthera system is the use of ultrasound, which lets our Los Angeles Ulthera skin tightening expert target areas more precisely.
Advantages of Ulthera Skin Tightening
The Ulthera system offers a wide variety of benefits in terms of treatment time, results and recovery. Many patients get the results they want in just a single one-hour treatment, but additional sessions can be scheduled when desired. Popular areas treated with Ultherapy include the brow, lips, and chin, all of which look more youthful after being tightened. A variety of other areas, including the arms, abdomen, and thighs, may also benefit from Ultherapy. Recovery is minimal and requires no special action for results to appear.
The Ulthera Skin Tightening Process
Our expert in Ulthera skin tightening in Los Angeles begins this treatment by discussing treatment goals with patients and marking target areas with a pen. To prevent discomfort during the procedure, our dermatologist may administer local anesthetic. Next, our dermatologist uses the Ultherapy applicator to energize tissues in the treatment areas. Afterwards, patients may continue to see results appear for up to 90 days.
Candidates for Ulthera Skin Tightening
This treatment can be a powerful option to tighten skin in patients who have experienced increased skin laxity due to aging or weight loss. In many cases, Ultherapy patients are between ages 30 and 65, but patients of any age can benefit from this treatment if they are unhappy with areas of loose skin. Although many patients seek treatment from our Los Angeles Ulthera skin tightening expert after skin laxity has occurred, others have this procedure performed as a preventive measure against future deterioration of their appearance.
Patients may experience slight skin flushing immediately after receiving Ultherapy, but this generally disappears within hours. Costs of treatment can vary and depend on the size of areas being treated.
