Patients who are interested in lifting and tightening their skin to resolve the signs of aging are welcome to contact the practice of Seriously Skin to learn about cosmetic treatments that can be used to do so without invasive plastic surgery. Our team enjoys sharing with patients the many options available to them for treatment, which includes services such as Ulthera.
Ulthera is an ultrasound treatment that has been approved by the FDA for the use of tightening and lifting the skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This results in a firmer, more youthful appearance, allowing patients to enjoy a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin laxity is a concern for many patients, and this treatment allows both men and women to combat these noticeable signs of aging. It uses a special device that administers ultrasound energy to help stimulate the collagen building process and can provide noticeable results over the course of several months. Patients can enjoy in-office treatments that last less than an hour and can provide long-term improvement. Most patients can see results with just one treatment though additional treatments can provide optimum results.
Ulthera can be used on many parts of the face and has been shown to provide exceptional results in areas such as:
- Around the eyes
- On the mid to lower face
The procedure is relatively comfortable with patients experiencing a heating sensation on their skin. This is mild and is a sign that the ultrasound energy is targeting the deep layers of the skin’s tissues and signaling the collagen building to start. While there are not immediate results, patients will see gradual enhancement and rejuvenation over several weeks to about three months after their initial treatment.
The best part of Ulthera? No downtime, minimal side effects, affordability, and real results without patients having to undergo invasive surgical and dealing with scarring left behind. At Seriously Skin in the Cleveland area, we can educate patients on Ulthera and other cosmetic procedures readily available for both men and women in our state-of-the-art dermatological practice.
