What is Ultherapy?Ultherapy, previously known as Ulthera, is a non-invasive, non-surgical lifting procedure with no downtime designed to restore sagging, lax skin on the face and neck to a firm, youthful state. Ultherapy is FDA approved for non-invasive eyebrow lifting and newly approved for treatment of loose skin on the neck and under the chin, reducing the appearance of drooping or "crepey" neck skin.
Benefits of Ultherapy include:
- No downtime
- FDA approved
The dermatologists at the Maryland Laser, Skin, and Vein Institute have been safely performing Ulthera treatments for four years.
How does Ultherapy work?The Ultherapy device uses sound waves targeted beneath the skin to gently heat, tighten and lift the skin, creating a younger, firmer look. And because Ultherapy uses ultrasound, the surface skin is left undisturbed. In addition to the initial lifting, Ultherapy also prompts the body to generate new collagen, restoring skin over time to an even more youthful appearance and texture.
How does Ultherapy differ from laser treatments?Lasers typically treat issues in the superficial layers of the skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and acne. Ultherapy treats the deep skin layer and foundation layer to lift and tighten the skin. Laser treatments can be used in addition to Ultherapy to address surface issues on the skin.
