Ultherapy.....Finally a Solution for Skin Tightening on the Face, Neck and Chest!
At the end of June or first of July we will be offering Ultherapy!!
This is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive procedure to LIFT skin on the BROW, CHIN and NECK and improve fine lines and wrinkles on the chest!
Below are some frequently asked questions:
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy uses the body's own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the decolletage.
What is unique about Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. Ultherapy is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited where it will be most beneficial.
With the addition of the new Ultherapy Decolletage Treatment, Ultherapy is also now the only non-invasive procedure specifically indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?
Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won't duplicate the results of a facelift. Ultherapy is a great alternative, however, especially for those not ready for surgery or if you are looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How does Ultherapy differ from laser treatments?
Ultherapy uses sound energy - tried-and-true ultrasound -which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin's foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.
Lasers rely on energy, which can not reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin. Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they're actually very compatible.
How does Ultherapy stimulate the creation of collagen?
Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen rejuvenation. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultherapy doesn't involve any creams, fillers nor toxins; it just relies on your body's own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
How long does Ultherapy treatment take?
This depends on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Will I need to take time off?
There is no downtime! After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately,
without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
What does Ultherapy treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being delivered to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
When will I see results? How long do they last?
After your Ultherapy treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the severity of your skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and your own collagen-building process, you may benefit from additional treatments. Because our skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help you keep pace with your body's natural aging process. Dr. Trussell can give you many pointers on how to further slow down the aging process.
Are there any side effects?
You skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients may experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but this is temporary. Other, less common post-procedure effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of the skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which Dr. Trussell will go over with you. For even more information visit ultherapy.com/IFU.
Is Ultherapy safe?
The FDA-cleared Ultherapy procedure has been used safely in over 350,000 treatments worldwide. Ultrasound therapy has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years. In addition, Dr. Trussell and her nurse received extensive training in Ultherapy.
How much does an Ultherapy procedure cost?
Cost depends upon the area being treated. The treatments are very personalized so it is best to talk with Dr. Trussell about your specific concerns. A price guide will be posted on the website in the near future, so keep checking the website.....www.seibellamedspa.net.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line,loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. But the best way to find out is to ask Dr. Trussell!! 501-228-6237
