Ultherapy® is a revolutionary, non-invasive procedure in Cincinnati that can tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles, and help patients to look younger – all without surgery. It uses ultrasound waves to stimulate new skin growth, naturally improving the appearance.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
Ultherapy® uses focused ultrasound energy to heat the deep tissue below the skin. It’s warmed, so it becomes excited on a molecular level and is stimulated into the production of new collagen, the basic building block of the skin.
Collagen is a protein that forms the basis of our skin, ligaments, and skeletal tissue. One of the reasons our skin starts to sag and look weathered as we age is because our bodies produce less of this foundational tissue. The skin sags as older cells lose their shape, disrupting the tight structure they are woven into.
Stimulating collagen growth with Ultherapy® can help the patient generate new skin cells, which are smaller, tighter, and more regular than older cells. This means that as the older cells are shed, they are replaced by younger, healthier cells. Over a period of weeks, the patient begins to appear more youthful.
What Types of Results Can I Expect?
The procedure itself is relatively brief and leaves little to no visual markings on the skin. Some users may experience some mild redness or sensitivity. However, most will be able to return to normal daily activities directly after their session.
There will be the little visual effect on the skin right away. However, patients will notice over the following weeks that their skin will tighten and contract.
One of the benefits of Ultherapy® is that it does not alter the patient’s natural appearance; it simply restores a level of functionality to their skin production process that may have been lacking.
