Ultrasound technology is being widely used in San Diego primarily for diagnostic exams but it has been discovered that ultrasound can actually be used to revive and renew skin to make patients look younger. Ulthera is fast becoming one of the more popular treatment in our clinic for patients who are looking to achieve firmer and younger looking skin.
Ulthera is a non-invasive procedure and can achieve results without surgery or using dermal fillers. Like when you are getting an ultrasound to view what’s beneath the skin when you are pregnant for example, Ulthera helps your cosmetic surgeon see what’s beneath your damaged skin. While this is being done, the Ulthera wand emits heat energy that tightens and repairs the underlying tissue so that it can once again provide the structural support that your skin needs.
Unlike other skin treatments that cause damage to the skin surface, Ulthera bypasses the surface of your skin and goes directly into the deep layers of the skin where your collagen is. It works from the inside out, repairing the structural tissues and stimulating the natural production of collagen in your skin to improve elasticity. The results are tighter and firmer skin after a few treatments.
My patients can already see a significant improvement in the elasticity and quality of their skin after only one treatment with Ulthera. But to see the full effects, you should allow about 2-3 months for the treatment to gradually take effect and continue repairing your skin tissues from within. After this period my patients would come back raving about their tighter, smoother, and youthful glow. Many patients are satisfied with the effects of just one treatment, but depending on the severity of your skin laxity, we can discuss retreatments to further improve the appearance of your skin.
I generally recommend Ulthera to improve the appearance of sagging skin in the eyelids, jawline, or under the chin. Ulthera is also a good treatment to consider for patients who wants to correct the appearance of deep vertical lines on their chest. Ulthera is great for patients who wants to have a lift but are not yet prepared for surgery. What my patients love about Ulthera is the fact that it gradually tightens the skin, and people around you will not notice that you had work done! The effects are very natural, there is very minimal downtime, and it is proven effective.
