Ultherapy® has been called a knife-free or sutureless facelift because of the impressive results the process can deliver. Robert Mirabile, MD, and Vivian Hsu, MD, of Best Impression Med Spa in Blue Bell and Norristown, Pennsylvania, offer Ultherapy as one of many treatments to help you turn back the hands of time. To explore Ultherapy in more detail, schedule a consultation today. You can book online, or call to speak with a friendly staff member.
Ultherapy is a noninvasive aesthetic treatment that uses ultrasound technology to reduce the visible signs of aging. There’s no need for anesthesia, downtime, or special preparation. There are also none of the risks or side effects associated with surgical interventions.
The process lifts and tightens your skin by stimulating your body to produce new collagen. Those new cells replace the collagen lost over the years, which plumps your skin and creates a lifting effect. Treatments can improve the appearance of your face and neck. Ultherapy can even smooth the delicate skin of your decollete, or the upper portion of your chest.
Once you arrive at Best Impression Med Spa and get comfortable in the treatment room, your practitioner cleanses your skin and applies a special gel to the treatment area. The gel helps the ultrasound handpiece glide across the surface of your skin.
The initial portion of the treatment involves using the treatment wand to gather ultrasound imaging to map out the proper treatment area and depth. Once your practitioner determines the optimal treatment plan, the next phase begins.
The Ultherapy device deposits carefully controlled energy to precise tissue depths. You may feel slight zapping or shock-like sensations as the treatment progresses, but there is no significant pain.
Depending on the location and size of the treatment area, each session should last between 30-90 minutes. You may have some minor redness or swelling in the area for a few hours after treatment, but no downtime is needed.
It takes some time for your body to respond with new collagen production, but you can expect to see results within 8-12 weeks after your treatment. By the end of that period, you should notice more youthful skin and a well-rested appearance.
Most men and women only need one treatment to achieve optimal results. If you have severely sagging skin, you may need more than one session to see noticeable improvements. The duration of your results depends on how your body responds to the treatment, but occasional touch-up treatments can help extend those results.
If you’re interested in powerful anti-aging treatments without the need to undergo surgery, Ultherapy may be a good fit for you. Schedule a consultation at Best Impression Med Spa to learn more, either online or over the phone.
