People who are concerned about wrinkles and sagging, thinning skin can find a solution in Ultherapy at our practice in Toledo, Ohio. This FDA-cleared treatment uses ultrasound energy for non-invasive skin tightening. Ultherapy counters the effects of gravity and aging from the inside out, targeting the same deeper tissues that are usually addressed in cosmetic surgery to tighten and lift skin on the face, neck, and décolletage (chest).

By stimulating the body’s collagen-building process, Ultherapy gradually lifts and tones the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to the foundational layer of the skin without incisions or any effect on the skin’s surface. Unlike other non-surgical procedures that rely on radiofrequency energy or laser skin tightening treatments, Ultherapy completely bypasses the surface of the skin to pinpoint multiple levels of tissue, heating it to the ideal temperature at which the body begins generating collagen.

Collagen is what makes your skin supple and smooth. By both tightening and lifting the skin, you get results similar to those achieved through plastic surgery, but without downtime.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?

Patients with mild to moderate skin laxity who are concerned about facial wrinkles, sagging skin on the neck or jawline, or lines on the chest are excellent candidates for Ultherapy treatments. Dr. Colville may recommend Ultherapy for patients who initially thought they needed a facelift or neck lift but whose skin retains enough elasticity to avoid surgery.

Your Ultherapy Procedure

After the treatment area is cleaned, the Ultherapist applies a gel to your skin and positions the handheld Ultherapy device against your skin. Using the ultrasound imaging technology, the provider can “see” beneath the skin and carefully deliver the ultrasound energy to various levels of tissue.

During the treatment, you will feel the sensation of warmth as the ultrasound energy is delivered. Comfort levels vary from patient to patient, and any discomfort you feel occurs only for a brief instant when the energy is delivered. Some patients take over-the-counter pain relief medication before the procedure, or Dr. Colville may prescribe an oral sedative that patients take an hour prior to the treatment.

Treatments typically take between an hour and 90 minutes for the face and neck. A chest treatment lasts about 30 minutes. We can treat individual areas, such as the brow, in less time.

What Can I Expect After an Ultherapy Treatment?

Because Ultherapy is non-invasive, there is no downtime following the treatment, and patients return to their normal daily activities immediately afterward. Your skin may appear flushed initially, but that fades within hours. Swelling, tingling, or tenderness are common, temporary side effects.

How Long Until You See Results From Ultherapy?

You may notice some initial changes in the first few days after the procedure, but results continue emerging for several months. During that time, your body produces new collagen that slowly lifts and tightens skin in the treatment area. Ultherapy treatment is a process that yields final results after about 6 months. In fact, you may feel tightening and lifting before you see it. In some cases, patients schedule BOTOX® Cosmetic injections about a week after their Ultherapy treatments to create more comprehensive results.
