Complements Ultherapy treatment: The ultimate nonsurgical facelift


By Mallory Miller, reconstructive & cosmetic surgery, Mount Nittany Physician

Looking good and feeling good leads to confidence, empowerment and allows you to put your best face forward. Currently, several nonsurgical cosmetic treatments offer high-quality, cost-effective results, as well as lower risks than surgeries, to slow the aging process helping you look and feel your best.

Ultratherapy is an FDA-approved non-invasive technique for lifting neck, chin, and eyebrow skin, which can help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and result in a smoother, healthier complexion. Ultherapy is an in-clinic treatment using visualization technology and focused sonic waves boosting natural collagen production, which tightens and lifts the skin and underlying tissues.

Ulteraphy is a versatile procedure, offering a full facelift and targeted treatments such as brow lifting, a more defined jawline, or decolletage refresh. In addition, the treatment can be combined with other anti-aging procedures to yield even greater results.

Ultherapy produces impressive results. Most patients typically see improvements six months following treatment. The treatment induced regeneration of collagen and elastin will provide a lasting effect, typically for a year and sometimes longer. The procedure is great for all skin tones and types, including darker skin. 

One of the best benefits of Ultherapy is that there is little to no recovery time needed. An Ulthera wand, depending on your treatment focus, is strategically inched over the neck or decolletage, jaw, cheeks, and forehead. You might experience quick, intermittent feelings of heat and tingling during the treatment. Still, it doesn't have to be very uncomfortable with pre-treatment as advised by the provider.

The length of treatment will depend on the area being treated and your treatment plan. An upper chest (or décolletage) laser treatment takes about 30 minutes. A face and neck procedure generally takes about 60 minutes to 90 minutes.
