Ulthera-Non-Surgical Skin Tightening & Lifting

What is Ultherapy?

For patients who are looking for an alternative to cosmetic surgery, many may find what they're looking for in a treatment called Ultherapy. Ultherapy is a state-of-the-art skin tightening treatment that can be used in lieu of a surgical face-lift procedure. Jupiter office A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery offers this amazing technological treatment for patients who want to tighten skin on their face and neck. The most common areas treated with Ultherapy are the forehead, neck, and chin.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound instead of lasers to tighten the skin for a non-invasive "uplift.” While the face lift procedure is a typically requested procedure with a plastic surgeon, some may have minor tightening that needs to be completed, and are not looking for a surgical solution that can carry the risks and downtime that the patient may not be able to afford. However, Ultherapy offers patients an alternative solution that allows them little discomfort, fast results, and no downtime. In addition, Ultherapy is an FDA-approved treatment that has been used for several years to address sagging and loose skin on the face and neck. Patients who have undergone Ultherapy have been extremely satisfied with the results they have received.

While patients may experience slight discomfort during the treatment, it is completely tolerable by most patients that undergo the procedure. Any discomfort that is felt during an Ultherapy session is minor and temporary, and patients often don't find that it is enough to keep them from doing the treatment regularly to maintain results.

Ultherapy is completed with a specialized device that is used to produce ultrasonic waves that distribute heat underneath the surface layer of the skin. This is done in order to boost collagen production, which can tighten and "lift" the skin over a period of several weeks. This is because the collagen needs to build up and produce the full results. Patients often go for only one Ultherapy treatment, and can then follow up each year with a maintenance treatment to assist them in keeping up with the inevitable process of aging that cannot be avoided.

Ultherapy is a wonderful alternative to a face-lift procedure. Jupiter residents can visit Dr. Vitulli of A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, and learn more about this amazing technique that can help with the rebuilding of collagen, tightening of the skin, and improvement in a patient's overall appearance.
