Ultherapy Neck Before and After
Ultherapy: What is It? How to Treat or Stop Sagging Neck?
An Ultherapy (Ulthera) treatment takes advantage of safe, time-tested Ultrasound technology. Ultrasound tightening of facial and neck skin works by gently heating the dermis to stimulate neocollagenesis and elastin remodeling. As a result, Ultherapy on the neck actually lifts the musculature from within, as it restores tone and texture to saggy skin on the neck, chin and jowls. The result is a younger looking appearance to the skin.
Why is My Neck So Wrinkly?
Our clients often wonder what causes crepey skin on the neck and chest. They want to know what makes neck creases to appear and deepen so suddenly. One factor is that skin on the neck is thinner than other areas of the body. This means the skin on the neck has fewer reparative oil glands and less fat to plump it up. Additionally, the skin on the neck is continuously exposed, making it vulnerable to sun damage. Further, people have a tendency to neglect the skin on the neck. While they often have a skincare regimen for the face, they forget to routinely take care of the neck area with gentle soaps and the right topical skincare products. Finally, add the natural course of aging to the recipe and you get wrinkly neck skin that won’t go away without treatment.
How Does Aging Create Neck Wrinkles and Sagging Skin?
As we age, the skin of our neck starts to become loose, due to many factors such as gravity, weight fluctuations and general weakening of the supportive musculature. Loose skin appears between the top of the neck and the tip of the chin, creating what patients describe as a double chin or a turkey neck. Skin of the lower neck can become wrinkled and lax. Further, neck creases and crepey skin on the neck appears more prominently.
Collagen depletion is a major factor in the loosening of the neck skin, as we age. The already thin and vulnerable skin on the neck becomes thinner and loses even more fat. And the problem only progresses with age. Horizontal neck bands (necklace lines) and neck wrinkles can appear at 30. A crepey neck, vertical neck bands and loose neck skin at 40 or 50 are extremely common. Finally, the Platysma muscle (responsible for the neck waddle) can loosen and divide into two deep vertical bands or troughs.
Ultherapy: What is Its Anti-Aging Benefit for Saggy Neck and Loose Skin?
Ultherapy does not just tighten, it also rejuvenates the overall youthful appearance by increasing collagen and elasticity. Ultherapy rebuilds collagen on the inside and counteracts the effects of stretching and gravity that can been seen on the outside layer of the skin on the neck. Ultherapy is one of the best wrinkled neck solutions available.
Ultherapy for Turkey Neck: How Does Ultherapy Work on Neck Skin?
Ultherapy is a highly targeted treatment, using patented DeepSee technology. An on-screen image deep within the skin guides the practitioner, showing her precisely where to deliver precise energy at three different layers of the skin. Ultherapy uses ultrasound waves targeted to 4.5 mm, 3.0 mm and 1.5 mm on the neck, in order to trigger the body’s natural collagen producing response at three different levels of the skin tissue and into the SMAS layer (the foundational level of skin, where cosmetic surgeons reach when performing a neck lift).
This is particularly useful for treating slack, loose and saggy skin on the neck. Most non-invasive skin tightening treatments only treat neck skin at one depth. It has been scientifically proven that treating at multiple depths offers superior results, as twice the volume of tissue is treated. The ability to target at deeper wavelengths is important, especially when treating the neck skin that’s thinner than other areas.
Is Ultherapy Effective on the Neck Area? What Ultherapy Research is Available?
For people wondering how to stop or get rid of neck lines or loose neck skin, there’s no better answer than Ultherapy. It’s simply the best nonsurgical wrinkly neck remedy available. Ultherapy has been proven effective in lifting and tightening the neck in numerous scientific studies. In just one study, 72.9% of subjects achieved a statistically significant measurable and visible tissue lift of the submental neck area.
Does Ultherapy Really Work? How Long to See Results on the Neck?
The loose skin on the neck will tighten gradually, and the skin lifting results will last up to five years. The network of collagen will regenerate mostly over the next 2-3 months and through the year. Specifically, it will lift and tighten the neck, as well as reduce sagging of the skin on the neck, underneath the jaw and the double chin. Additionally, it will smooth wrinkles on the neck and get rid of neck creases.
How Long Does Ultherapy Last? Is Ultherapy Permanent?
An Ulthera ultrasound neck lift can last up to five years. However, results depend on each individual’s genetic predisposition to aging, as well as lifestyle factors. Likewise, a permanent skin tightening solution would be impossible, because of the natural aging process.
What is Ultherapy Recovery Time Following Neck Treatment?
Ultherapy risks, bad results and problems are less common than a cosmetic facelift. It works in one single, 60 – 90 minute treatment without any downtime, scarring, or risks associated with surgery. As a result, patients are free to return to normal activity following Ultherapy treatment.
Ultherapy Pain : Does Ultherapy Hurt? Is Ultherapy Safe?
Pain is uncommon during Ulthera skin tightening; however, levels of tolerance are individual. Any discomfort during treatment usually dissipates quickly. Our experienced and licensed technicians are highly-trained in how to make the procedure as pain-free and comfortable as possible. Most patients report that any mild discomfort experienced due to the heat of the Ultrasound energy is worth the benefit that Ultherapy treatment provides for the neck area.
What are Ultherapy Side Effects? What is the Recommended Ultherapy After-Care?
Generally, side effects are minor and dissipate in time, during the normal healing process. These may be alleviated with simple measures, such as Ibuprofen. Immediately following treatment, skin on the neck may have some redness, which usually subsides within several hours. Additionally, it is normal to experience mild tenderness, bruising and swelling after Ulthera for up to a week. Further, tingling, soreness, numbness and tenderness (especially under the jowls) may occur for up to two to three weeks.
Why Get Ultherapy vs. Surgical Neck Lift?
Ultherapy and Surgical Neck Lifts both reach the SMAS layer, which is deep within the skin. The difference between the two neck treatments is that, while a surgical neck lift can pull back the skin and muscle, it cannot create a toned, more elastic, youthful quality like Ultherapy. Further, an Ultherapy treatment on the neck works without the significant risks, pain and downtime associated with going under the knife. It’s a great nonsurgical alternative, especially for people who don’t consider surgery an option or for those looking to boost the benefit of a Neck Lift.
Am I a Good Candidate for Ultherapy on the Neck?
Patients with mild to moderately lax skin on their neck are the best candidates for the Ultherapy Neck Lift.
Is Ultherapy Safe for All Skin Tones?
Unlike laser resurfacing or certain chemical peels, Ultherapy is great for all skin types and skin tones, including darker skin tones. It can safely and effectively be used year-round, even on tanned skin.
What are the Best Ulthera Treatment Areas?
Because Ultherapy is a highly targeted treatment, it’s great for many treatment areas, particularly the face. During the procedure, our expert estheticians have the strategic advantage of being able to see treatment areas on a screen, allowing them to zero in on specific areas of concern. For example, Ultherapy for eyes can tightening benefit for lower eyelids. Further, a non-surgical brow lift can smooth the skin along the forehead Additionally, Ultherapy works on other parts of the body other than the face. Clients report improvements of skin laxity when Ultherapy is used to treat the décolleté, stomach and knees.
Are There Celebrities Who Have Had Ulthera?
After Ultherapy was featured on Dr. Oz in 2012, celebrities began jumping on board. A score of celebrities make use of Ultherapy, as part of their anti-aging regime. They include: Jennifer Aniston, Vanessa Williams, Courtney Cox and Christie Brinkley.
