Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure that is FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher look from your brow to your chest! Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck, and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as effective in clinical studies* and in over a million treatments worldwide.
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
Collagen is a naturally occurring protein found in the body. It provides structure to the skin, muscles, bones, and many other parts of the body.
As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which can make our skin look older. Other common factors that deplete the body’s natural production of collagen include smoking, UV rays and/or excessive sun exposure, and a poor diet high in carbohydrates and refined sugar.
Men and women who are in their 30s or older are generally good candidates for Ultherapy. If you have sagging skin on your neck, brow, or chin and do not want to go under the knife, Ultherapy may be the perfect treatment for you. If you are looking to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles in your décolletage area, Ultherapy is an ideal treatment option.
During your consultation with Dr. Cavazos, he will discuss your medical history with you. Be sure to inform him of any medications you are currently taking.
Since Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to lift and rejuvenate the skin, you may feel some discomfort as the ultrasound energy penetrates your skin; not to worry, though, as DrC360 has ProNox (laughing gas), which is a safe and effective analgesic. Typically, an Ultherapy treatment can last anywhere from thirty to ninety minutes depending on the areas being treated.
Most patients do not need more than one Ultherapy session; however, it is important to remember that each patient will respond to the treatment differently. Talk to Dr. Cavazos if you have any questions or concerns about the procedure.
There is no downtime needed after an Ultherapy session, so you can return to your normal daily routine right away.
You may experience some redness at the treatment sites. This is completely normal and usually subsides within a few hours. You may also experience some swelling or tenderness at the targeted areas, and these issues will disappear shortly after your treatment.
Maximum results from Ultherapy take three to four months and can last for up to two years. You may schedule follow-up treatments every year to maintain your Ultherapy results.
