Ultherapy in Beverly Hills, CA
What is Ultherapy Treatment?
Ultherapy is a unique non-invasive treatment that reaches deep beneath the skin to stimulate more collagen and elastin production compared to other skin tightening treatments. Sound energy stimulates the skin just enough so that the body works to repair itself by increasing production of these proteins without causing any substantial or lasting harm.
Ultherapy also provides ultrasound imaging while in use so that the experts at Enhance Medical Center can see precisely which areas of the skin require the most treatment. It is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive skin lifting procedure available.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
This non-invasive procedure targets the same structural skin layers addressed by a conventional facelift, but without disturbing the facial surface. Ultherapy is a highly-suitable option for those who want a less invasive, faster, and more cost-effective means of restoring or maintaining a youthful-looking face.
Depending on the areas being addressed, a typical Ultherapy treatment session may range from 30 to 90 minutes. Enhance® is one of the few Ultherapy specialists in Beverly Hills to provide complimentary IV sedation during your treatment. We also offer the option to upgrade to full general anesthesia. During the treatment, the Ultherapy device passes back and forth across the skin. Many patients experience only a very mild pinching sensation during the procedure, while others describe greater discomfort.
We can discuss your personal preferences during your free consultation. Most patients require just one treatment and enjoy results that last a year or longer. Patients will not be allowed to drive immediately after their treatment because of the sedation’s possible side effects. If you wish, we can arrange a professional car service to take you home.
What Concerns Can Ultherapy Treat?
Ultherapy can target sagging brows, necks, and under-chin areas. Using only 100% ultrasound technology, Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive procedure for lifting and tightening the neck, chin, and brow and for decreasing lines and wrinkles on the chest.
How Does Ultherapy Differ From Thread Lift?
Both Ultherapy and Thread Lift target the fiber-muscular layer to lift and tighten the face and neck, but the procedures differ in a few key ways. Thread Lift is semi-invasive as it requires a few small incisions and some recovery time for bruises and swelling to subside. Ultherapy is a completely non-invasive procedure requiring no incisions and no downtime.
Another difference between the procedures is that the results of Thread Lift are immediately visible and last up to 9 months. The results of Ultherapy require up to 2 months to fully develop and last for up to a year.
Is Ultherapy Safe?
Ultherapy is FDA approved and is completely safe for all skin types and complexions.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an appropriate choice for patients who are in good health and want to tighten up aging skin on the face and neck. It’s a great alternative for those who do not wish to get surgery. Patients who are between the ages of 30 and 65 see the most benefits, but it’s suitable for all ages experiencing premature aging.
How Is Ultherapy Different from Laser Treatments?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound therapy to go deeper than other non-invasive treatment for collagen stimulation. Laser procedures are better for treating the surface layers of the skin.
What Kind of Side Effects Can I Expect after Ultherapy?
Ultrasound energy is gentle and any side effects are both minimal and temporary. You may experience, tingling, or mild swelling, which are normal. Ultherapy requires no downtime, allowing you to return to normal daily activities immediately.
How Long Do Results from Ultherapy Last?
To maintain optimal results of Ultherapy, annual treatment is recommended.
