Ultherapy® Treatment

Advanced Dermatlogy is an Ultra Premier Ultherapy treatment provider.

Ultherapy is a relatively new non-surgical method to tighten and lift your skin. Previous modes of treatment include fillers, lasers and surgery. They are all still viable methods used today but they are surgical whereas Ultherapy is not. Ultherapy helps skin restore the memory to the tissue underneath in order to tighten and lift the skin. In clinical studies, significant changes were noted in regard to the lifting of the skin. This isn’t a replacement for facelift and other treatments, but it is a replacement for those that want a non-invasive alternative to skin tightening.

How Ulthera Works

Ultherapy utilizes a small device on the skin which emits an ultrasound to reach the skin and tissue beneath your skin. Depending on the handpiece used, we can control the depth of treatment.

It is like a sonogram where an image of the tissue underneath your skin can be seen on a screen. The Ulthera device not only sees underneath the skin but it is also used to deliver heat energy at low levels to tighten and remodel the affected tissue without leaving any negative effects to the surface of your skin.

The reaction to the low levels of ultrasound heat energy causes the skin to contract immediately. The heat energy stimulates your collagen which will refresh itself over time. When the new collagen grows it will gradually tighten the skin, resulting in a natural skin tissue lift.

How Ulthera Differs from Other Non-surgical Skin Tightening Procedures

This procedure is the only one that employs the use of ultrasound imaging and therapy. By using ultrasound, it allows us to see underneath the skin and then the area we are treating. In addition, in our experience it works far better than previous non-invasive techniques.

Expected Results from Ulthera

With only a single treatment, your collagen is stimulated to grow anew and results can sometimes be seen immediately. For the treatment to fully take effect, it will occur gradually over a period of two to three months. Clinical trials reported results of tighter, firmer, more youthful looking skin. These studies documented changes in appearance that were significant in most patients.

After Ulthera

After the procedure, you can return back to work and continue with normal daily activities.

For some people, your skin may look puffy, slightly swollen, or flushed after the treatment, but this should last for only a few hours.

Safety of Ulthera

Ulthera is safe. Ultrasounds have been used for medical purposes for over a half a century and numerous clinical studies have proven that they are safe. Since the fall of 2006 Ultherapy received FDA approval for performing non-surgical lifts using ultrasound technology. Your physician will go over any additional safety concerns that might be relevant at the time of your visit.

What to Expect During Your Ulthera Consultation

During your consultation with an expert dermatologist, it will be discussed whether Ulterapy will meet the needs you are looking for. You will need to provide your medical history, as certain conditions may exclude one’s candidacy for Ulthera. You can then go over the areas that you would like to have treated. Any additional questions you have about your treatment will be fully answered.

This procedure has been shown on The View, Dr. Oz, The Doctors and many other educational programs. Come and schedule a consultation in one of our 13 offices to find out whether Ulthera is right for you.
