Ultherapy in Jupiter, FL produces results with minimal side effects compared to laser skin tightening

posted by
Laser Skin Tightening Jupiter FL
T ime, convenience, and cost are major deciding factors when patients choose cosmetic procedures. With hectic schedules and busy lives, many patients do not want the downtime and recovery periods associated with anti-aging surgical procedures. For patients in Jupiter, FL seeking ultrasound or laser skin tightening without the side effects or downtime of surgery, Dr. Peter Vitulli and the team at A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery offer non-surgical options to help you look as young as you feel.

Ultherapy skin tightening

At A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, we offer lasers for cosmetic skin rejuvenation. For skin tightening procedures we use FDA-cleared Ultherapy. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment for lifting and tightening the skin. With more than 1 million procedures performed worldwide and a 95 percent satisfaction rate one year after the treatment, Ultherapy is a growing trend in non-surgical skin tightening. This procedure uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin in the treatment area. No surgery, downtime, or lengthy recovery period is needed.
Treatment areas may include:
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Brow
  • Lines and wrinkles on the chest
This treatment does not involve toxins, needles, radiofrequency, or lasers to achieve firmer, tightened skin. With Ultherapy, the skin’s surface remains unharmed and intact. Ultrasound energy is delivered at the right temperature and proper depth. The focused ultrasound energy stimulates new collagen production. One treatment can counteract the effects of gravity and sun exposure.

Ultherapy uses sound energy to bypass the surface of the skin, treating depths that cannot be reached with other non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Laser skin tightening uses light energy and often treats superficial skin. These treatments are better suited for rejuvenating the tone or texture of the skin. Lasers are not FDA-cleared to lift the skin as Ultherapy does. Ultrasound therapy and laser therapy may complement one another to treat different skin issues, improving the overall look of the skin.

Side effects and what to expect

At A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, our anti-aging procedures such as injectables, lasers, and skin tightening treatments are performed in the comfort of our Jupiter office. For Ultherapy treatments, a cool applicator is placed on the treatment site. This projects an image which allows us to determine where to place the ultrasound energy. Low levels of energy are delivered through the applicator. This creates a warming sensation in the skin and underlying tissue. Patients can feel the energy as it is delivered initializing the collagen-building process. Comfort levels vary from patient to patient. Any discomfort that is present is only felt when energy is delivered.

Over time, the collagen production dramatically improves the skin, giving a firmer, more youthful appearance. Although noticeable effects may be found immediately after a single treatment, optimal results are visible over the course of two to three months, as the newly produced collagen begins to lift and tighten the skin in the treated areas. Patients with more advanced signs of aging may need more than one treatment to achieve the desired results. Ultherapy is not a surgical facelift. It will not produce the same effects, but does not have the required downtime either. However, Ultherapy is a non-invasive alternative for patients who are not ready for a full surgery.

Compared to laser skin tightenin
Compared to laser skin tightening, which can result in redness, blisters, or bruises, Ultherapy side effects are minimal. Immediately following Ultherapy, the treated skin may be pink but should return to normal within a few hours. Other side effects are mild and temporary. These effects may include swelling, tingling, or tenderness. Most patients experience no major side effects. With Ultherapy, there is no downtime or recovery period so there is no need to take time off from work. Patients can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure without restrictions or requirements.

Ultrasound therapy has been used medically for years. Used worldwide, Ultherapy is a safe, FDA-cleared method for skin tightening with minimal side effects. It is an effective, non-invasive anti-aging treatment for the neck, chin, brow, and chest.

Our practice offers many anti-aging treatment options. If you have loose or sagging skin, let Dr. Vitulli enhance your appearance. Schedule a consultation in our Jupiter, FL office to learn more about the best procedures for your needs. Call 561-427-2000.
