Ultherapy Before & After

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. By using your body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck and smooth the lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. What makes Ultherapy unique is that it is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin and it is the only non-invasive procedure specifically indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.

What is Unique About Ultherapy?

It is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging which allows us to see the a layers of tissue targeted during treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.

Can Ultherapy Replace a Surgical Facelift?

While Ultherapy does treat the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, it does not duplicate the results of a surgical facelift. It is a great alternative for a facelift especially for anyone not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

How Long Does Ultherapy Treatment Take?

The length of the treatment depends upon the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck treatment typically takes about 60-90 minutes while a chest treatment only takes about 30 minutes.

When Will I See Results? How Long Do They Last?

Following your Ultherapy treatment you may see some initial effects but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months as your body naturally regenerates collagen*. Since the treatment stimulates your own collagen production, how long the result last really depend on you. Ultherapy produces new collagen on the inside but your natural aging process dictates how long that translates into visible results on the outside*.

Am I a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?

Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin and lines or wrinkles on the chest. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Moraru.
