The Ultrasound Lift (Ultherapy)
What Is the Ultrasound Lift (Ultherapy)?
Ultherapy is a nonsurgical treatment for the face and neck that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten loose skin without any downtime. Ultherapy works over time to strengthen the existing collagen layer deep under the skin and starts a process that produces new collagen.
How Is the Ultrasound Lift Different From Other Cosmetic Procedures?
Ultherapy is the only nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound to target the deep foundation below the skin. This is a completely non-invasive procedure and does not involve any cutting of the skin. Ultherapy is also the only procedure that uses ultrasound imaging, which allows the patient to see the areas of the tissue that are being targeted during the treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate For the Ultrasound Lift?
A good candidate for the Ultrasound Lift is someone in their thirties or older who has mild to moderate skin laxity on their face and neck.
The Utrasound Lift is not a substitute for a surgical facelift. However, it provides skin tightening for patients who are not willing to go through surgery. Ultherapy can also prolong the effect of a surgical facelift for patients who have already gone under the knife.
Does It Hurt?
Comfort thresholds vary from one individual to another. There may be some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This is only temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.
How Much Does It Cost?
Prices at the Bitar Cosmetic Surgery Institute start from around $600. Financing options are available.
