Ultherapy Before and After
What is Ultherapy? Why Choose Ultherapy to Treat Lower Face Sagging?
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical treatment option that lifts skin and muscle, in addition to tightening and toning skin. Ultherapy uses micro-focused, ultrasound energy that goes deep into the SMAS skin tissue (the foundational layer cut by plastic surgeons). It is has no downtime, is noninvasive, works naturally and usually requires only a single one-hour treatment — all while yielding natural looking, long lasting results.
What Causes Sagging Jowls and Droopy Jawline?
Collagen makes up about 35% of our body. A major reason our skin starts to sag as we age is because of the natural slowing down of the collagen production process in our bodies. One of the first signs of aging is sagging of the lower face and jawline, due to decreasing levels of collagen in the latticework of collagen and elastin that supports our skin. Gravity and general weakening on the supportive musculature add to the problem.
Ultherapy for Jowls: How Does Ultherapy Work on Lower Face and Jowls?
Gravity pulls down the skin on the underside of the jaw line, as the collagen network and muscles weaken with age. Ultherapy uses ultrasound waves at precise depths and targeted areas on the cheeks chin and jaw line to trigger the skin to produce collagen. This process reinforces the networks of collagen to tone, smooth, and lift the skin naturally from within. The hand piece will be used to lift the jowls and jawline into the desired position, which retrains the superficial musculature and lifts the skin for long-lasting results.
Why is Ultherapy the Best Anti-Aging Treatment for Jowls?
Ultherapy triggers your natural healing process to produce new collagen and elastin, making it one of the best nonsurgical procedures for skin tightening. It effectively lifts sagging skin on areas including the jowls, neck, eyes, chest and more.
Ultherapy has the unique ability to micro target ultrasound into areas such as the jowls and lower face, which require deeper wavelengths than other areas of the face. During treatment of the jowls, chin and jawline, ultrasound waves are delivered at three different depths, targeting the deepest areas first, the SMAS, then the dermis. Using proprietary DeepSee technology to see and treat deep inside the tissue of the jowls, chin and jawline, Ultherapy provides accuracy and customized treatment to achieve natural looking skin tightening.
What is Ultherapy’s DeepSee Technology?
Ultherapy by Ulthera uses precise amounts of ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin. Micro-targeted ultrasound waves, customizable at different depths depending on the patient’s skin and areas being treated, are able to reach the muscle, deep dermis, and the epidermis. This stimulates fibroblasts, pro-collagen, collagen and elastin, resulting in increased skin elasticity and smoothing of wrinkles. DeepSee ultrasound technology allows for see and treat, real-time, on-screen visualization, precision, and customization of the depth of the tissue being treated, depending on how much skin tightening and lifting is needed versus how much smoothing is needed for each patient and each area being treated. Most other treatments cannot do this. Further, there is no downtime, because Ultherapy bypasses the outermost layer of the skin.
Is Ultherapy Effective on the Jowl Area? What Ultherapy Research is Available?
In one study, the average amount of lift was 45.2 mm with significant skin lifting for 71.8% of patients. These results prove that Ultherapy can effectively lift skin non-surgically and have significant advantages over skin-tightening surgery, such as a facelift.
Ultherapy: Does it Work? What Results Can I Expect?
Only one Ultherapy treatment is usually needed to achieve desired results, and a treatment generally takes about an hour. Although some skin tightening is noticeable immediately, the real results happen over the next 3-6 months and last for years, as new collagen forms and firms and rejuvenates the skin by increasing its elasticity. Results are natural looking because they are gradual.
How Long Does Ultherapy Last?
Ultherapy results can last up to five years. However, how long Ultherapy lasts depends on the genetic predisposition to aging and lifestyle factors of the patient. In a nutshell, Ultherapy lasts until you age more. Additional Ultherapy treatments can be performed if a patient desires additional skin tightening benefits after six months.
Is Ultherapy Skin Tightening Permanent?
Ultherapy treatment produces natural looking results that can last up to five years by using your skin’s healing process to stimulate collagen. And treatments can be repeated after six months for even more skin tightening and lifting. However, no anti-aging treatment has the ability to combat the natural aging process, which means that Ultherapy is not permanent.
What Age to Have Ultherapy? Can Ultherapy Stop Aging Before It Happens?
Ultherapy’s collagen boosting benefit makes it a very versatile treatment at any age. Not only will Ultherapy work to reverse skin laxity in the 40’s and 50’s, it can also be used earlier to stimulate collagen production and slow or prevent aging. To optimize Ultherapy’s preventative capabilities, we usually recommend combining it with other treatments such as Botox or Cosmetic Fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, for people in their 30’s.
What is Ultherapy Recovery Time Following Jowl Treatment?
Ultherapy risks, bad results and problems are less common than a cosmetic facelift. After a single, 60 – 90 minute treatment, patients are free to return to normal activity with no downtime or scarring. Immediately following treatment, patients typically only experience minor redness which lasts an hour or two.
Ultherapy Pain : Does Ultherapy Hurt? Is Ultherapy safe?
Pain is not generally reported during Ulthera skin tightening; however, each individual has a personal and individual tolerance to treatment. Generally, any discomfort dissipates quickly. Our experienced and licensed technicians know 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 lower face and jowl area.
What are Ultherapy Side Effects? What is the Recommended Ultherapy After-Care
Any minor side effects from Ulthera ultrasound treatment generally subside, as a part of the normal healing process. These may be alleviated with simple measures, such as Ibuprofen. Patients typically only experience minor redness which lasts an hour or two. Additionally, it is normal to experience mild tenderness, bruising and swelling for up to a week. The jowls, in particular, are susceptible to further, tingling, soreness, numbness and tenderness for up to two to three weeks.
What are the Best Ulthera Treatment Areas?
Ultherapy stimulates your skin from the inside out to smooth and tighten skin on the face, including the jowls, eyes, and brow. Ultherapy is also effective for lifting skin on the body including the neck, chest, knees and stomach. We offer complimentary consultations to see if Ultherapy is best for you, or if any of our other cosmedical non-surgical beauty treatments are better options for you.
Is Ultherapy Effective as a Replacement for Cosmetic Surgery?
Ultherapy is almost like a face lift without surgery, downtime, or scars. Skin tightening surgery generally involves removing skin tissue with a scalpel to pull and reattach skin and muscle to achieve tighter skin. However, it cannot create elasticity from within the skin like Ultherapy does. At Smooth Synergy, we believe that maintenance is the key to avoiding surgery, and we offer proven, effective non-surgical skin treatments, which can by used in synergy with Ultherapy, in order to address concerns now and avoid surgery later. Ultherapy is one of the best proven non-invasive skin tighteners available, which can achieve significant results without cosmetic surgery.
Ultherapy Cost: How Much is Ultherapy Treatment?
How much Ultherapy costs in NYC depends on your desired treatment outcome, as well as how lax your skin is before treatment. Because it’s the only FDA cleared treatment for skin tightening, we, generally say that Ultherapy is worth the price!
Am I a Good Candidate for Ultherapy on the Lower Face?
Ultherapy works best on jowls, chin and lower face that show the signs of mild to moderate laxity. In fact, maintaining your skin with Ultherapy while it has slight to moderate laxity can delay or eliminate the need for cosmetic surgery later. When you come for your consultation, we will use a special index to make sure your level of skin laxity is within the guidelines to allow you to get the best results possible.
