Ultherapy® in Worcester, MA
With aging, skin loosens and tissues lose volume as a result of diminished collagen production. Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment option for patients wishing to tighten and firm up the skin on the face, neck, eyebrow, lips, and under the chin and décolletage without surgery. We are proud to announce that Ultherapy® is available at Salisbury Plastic Surgery, providing skin tightening treatments for residents of Massachusetts in Worcester, Shrewsbury, and nearby areas.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-surgical facelift procedure that uses ultrasound technology. Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive ultrasound procedure that lifts and tightens skin on the face, neck, eyebrow, lips, and under the chin and décolletage. By utilizing high-intensity focused ultrasound, Ultherapy® is able to provide a lift to the face with minimal downtime and discomfort.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
Ultherapy® allows our aestheticians to visualize the muscles and deep connective tissue below the skin and deliver targeted concentrated ultrasound energy. The concentrated energy tightens deep tissue and stimulates the body’s own collagen production resulting in tighter, smoother, more lifted skin. Ultherapy® can lift and tighten skin on the face, neck, eyebrow, lips, and under the chin and décolletage.
Who Can Benefit from Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is safe for all skin types and anyone with mild to moderate skin laxity can benefit from an Ultherapy® procedure. The typical Ultherapy® patient is in their late 30s to early 50s as this is the age when most people begin to experience skin laxity.
How is Ultherapy® Performed?
Ultherapy® is a no-downtime procedure and is performed in our office. Patients can return to work the next day after treatment if desired. During an Ultherapy® procedure our aestheticians will prep the skin of the face and apply an ultrasound gel. Next, they will place a smooth ultrasound probe on your skin in the treatment areas. Then ultrasound imaging will be used to identify the ideal depth and location for the treatment energy to target.
Ultrasound energy from the probe will be focused deep into the tissue at the right depth and the right temperature to safely stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration process and promote collagen production. During the procedure patient experience a mild, warm tightening sensation that is tolerable without any form of anesthetic or pain medication for most people. However, if you have a limited pain tolerance, we offer PRO-NOX™ to remove the discomfort. Ultherapy® treatments typically take between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the number of areas that are being treated.
What are the Results and Recovery Following Ultherapy® Treatment?
Following an Ultherapy® procedure, your skin may be slightly swollen and sensitive for a few hours, but you should be able to return to normal activity the next day with the exception of exposure to extremes of heat and cold. You will notice some skin tightening immediately with full results becoming visible in 3 to 6 months following the treatment as your body regenerates and produces new collagen.
