The Ultherapy® process
At Aventura Dermatology, patients in the communities of Hallandale and Boca Raton, FL have a wide range of services to choose from to look and feel their best. With a treatment like Ultherapy®, patients can combat the signs of aging, including skin laxity which contributes to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
What is Ultherapy®?
Dr. Bertha Baum of Aventura Dermatology described Ultherapy® as a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the skin to reduce skin laxity on the face, neck, and chest.
How does Ultherapy® work?
The Ultherapy® treatment uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of the skin. This results in lifted, tighter skin. The effects of Ultherapy® are not immediate, but occur with time as collagen and elastin stores improve. The results are noticeable, but not nearly as drastic as plastic surgery solutions such as a facelift.
What can I expect from Ultherapy® treatment?
You can expect to see a noticeable lift in the skin around your face, neck, and chest. Ultherapy® treatment uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, younger-looking skin. Most patients see significant results after just one treatment, though you may need more than one session to achieve your desired results.
Is Ultherapy® safe?
Ultherapy® is safe for all skin types and has very few side effects. The most common side effect is mild discomfort during the procedure. Once patients have had their treatment, they may notice redness and sensitivity of the skin, but this subsides on its own over the course of a few days and is not particularly bothersome to most patients.
