Ultherapy is one of the newest and most-advanced techniques for lifting, toning and tightening skin. Though it isn’t an alternative for a complete, traditional facelift, Ultherapy does offer patients an option for a non-invasive, subtler tightening of the brow, neck or under the chin.
Using ultrasound technology to stimulate the structures of the skin, Ultherapy is able to lift and tighten hard-to-treat areas without damaging the surface of the skin. Over the two to three months following the procedure, patients will experience continued improvements. The procedure itself typically only lasts 60 to 90 minutes and has no downtime. Discuss your goals with board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Reps or Burton Sundin to determine if Ultherapy is right for you.

At a certain point in all of our lives, the inevitable occurs: our first signs of aging. Complaints like a heavy, low-sagging brow, jowls, turkey neck, double chin, wrinkles and creases, fine lines and crows feet are common with aging. These changes to the face often make us look more tired and rundown than we feel inside. To counter these changes, there have been many surgical and non-surgical treatments available over the past few decades include Facelift, Neck Lift, Botox, and Juvaderm. Now there is a new option on the table, the non-invasive, high-tech Richmond Ulthera.
Ulthera utilizes the 50+ year technology of the Ultasound to identify the loose tissue below the skin. Next, Ulthera sends sound waves, or energy, to the specified area. This energy heats to lifts and tightens the loose skin without disturbing the quality of the surface skin, but this initial tightening is just the first effect of the Ulthera treatment, the second of which is that it stimulates your body’s creation of new collagen which will continue to help your skin achieve and maintain that smoother, more youthful appearance.
A relatively quick treatment, the procedure takes only about 30-60 minutes with initial results visible immediately and final results visible in the following months as your body responds to the collagen growth. Ulthera cannot replace the major transformations surgical treatments offer, but for those experiencing the earlier signs of aging, Ulthera can be a wonderful treatment which requires no recovery period and can rejuvenate your skin to keep it looking healthy and beautiful.
