One amazing, non-invasive lift procedure for the neck, chin, brow, and chest is the FDA-approved Ultherapy®. Focused ultrasound technology targets deep skin layers to boost natural collagen production. The Herschthal Practice, serving residents of Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, and Ft. Lauderdale, FL, schedules one-hour Ultherapy® sessions to help treat your cosmetic needs. Ultherapy® is a key component of the “Tightening” category of our exclusive TR3+ approach.
How Does Ultherapy® Non-Surgical Face Contouring Work?
Several factors contribute to the deterioration of skin through the aging process. As the outer layer loses elasticity and stretches due to years of sun exposure, laughing, smiling, frowning and being surprised, the layers below suffer as well. These no longer provide the same support for the outer layer. Collagen and elastin production slows, while lines, wrinkles, and creases start to form. Collagen production, however, can be stimulated as existing collagen coagulates. The trick is heating collagen to begin coagulation without damaging surrounding tissue. Ultherapy® uses ultrasound waves to penetrate the outer skin layers, targeting the collagen. Collagen coagulation occurs and new collagen growth begins, filling out gaps, and supporting the skin’s outer layer. A deeper pass is also performed the target muscles of the face. This enhances the tightening and lifting effect seen with Ultherapy®.
What Areas of the Body Does Ultherapy® Improve?
Five regions benefit from Ultherapy’s® collagen stimulation. The full-face benefits from treatment, as small lines fill in and heavier creases and wrinkles soften. Targeted problem areas, such as the brow and under the chin, benefit from treatment as well. Brow treatments are notable, raising the brow a couple millimeters. Any collagen stimulation eye lift must use other means, and Ultherapy® proves effective. Under the chin, the process tightens up mild double chin and firms the appearance of the jawline. The neck is often an issue, particularly when facial improvements negatively highlight aging in the neck area. Ultherapy® is safe and effective in improving this trouble spot. The upper chest and décolletage area often suffers more advanced aging due to sun exposure around low necklines. Ultherapy® proves ideal for this treatment area, smoothing the creases and lines resulting from increased sun damage.
What Can I Expect After an Ultherapy® Treatment?
While you can expect some redness and mild discomfort in the treatment areas, Drs. David and Jordana Herschthal assert this is a no-downtime procedure. What’s more, they consider the initial Ultherapy® treatment a one-time procedure. Results take 30 to 90 days to show— but with maintenance sessions every two to five years, they expect many patients will see a lifetime of improvement from Ultherapy® treatment.
