Ultherapy Before & After Pictures at Laser Clinique in San Diego

Ultherapy® is a NEW FDA approved, non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to safely firm, tighten and actually lift skin tissue without disrupting the surface of the skin. Ultherapy is the only device that goes beyond the dermis to target the superficial muscle layer.

Ultherapy®, also referred to as Ulthera®, is a non-surgical treatment to lift, tone and tighten sagging skin around the eyes, face, under the chin and the neck area. Many of us experience these common signs of aging, but do not wish to undergo surgical procedures in order to reverse them. Ultherapy® offers an alternative solution with little to no recovery time required.

Dermatology & Laser Institute of Southwest Florida offers this innovative technique to reduce signs of aging and sagging skin, including wrinkles and inelastic skin, on your face and neck without any incisions (or injections) necessary for treatment. In fact, Ultherapy® is the only FDA approved treatment to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas.

Ultherapy Improvements

For patients who are looking to improve their appearance to treat the following issues:

  • Sagging skin under the face and neck
  • Loose skin under the brow around the eyes
  • Nasolabial folds, also known as the "parentheses" around the mouth

How Ultherapy® Works

Ultherapy® is a professional skin rejuvenation method that uses high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) waves to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin-including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift. Collagen is stimulated by the ultrasonic waves and the heat that they provide. This can ultimately lead to improved elasticity and firmness in the skin. Ultherapy also works to trigger regeneration of healthier skin layers, providing a safe, natural lift to your face and neck.

During the Ultherapy® procedure, a special device will be gently guided over the treatment areas in order to deliver the appropriate amount of ultrasonic waves for the skin to begin a gradual smoothing and tightening process. Treatment can take anywhere from 30-90 minutes, depending on the areas being treated.


Results and Benefits

Because Ultherapy® requires no needles or incisions, recovery time is generally not necessary after treatment. Most patients are able to resume normal activity shortly afterwards. After your initial treatment, you will begin to see gradual results which will continue to improve over the following two to three months, as the skin layers and collagen regenerate. Tightening and elasticity will continue to improve over time.

How long does the treatment take?

Full face can take 60-90 minutes. The full face treatment will give your overall appearance the best result as it will lift the skin from all areas. Smaller treatment areas can take 45-60 mins to perform. We will be able to advise you of treatment times specific to your treatment at your FREE consultation.

What is the downtime?

No recuperation and no interruption of daily routine. You may return to normal activities immediately. Any flushing or redness should resolve within a few hours. It is not uncommon for there to be some swelling for a few days following the procedure but these are mild and temporary in nature.

Am I a good candidate?

Ideal candidates are men and women with mild to moderate skin laxity ie// sagging under the chin, loss of jawline, appearance of jowls, downturned mouth, hooding on the eyelids. We will always assess your specific concerns to determine if you are a good candidate prior to treatment in a FREE consultation.

When will I see results?

Just as it takes time for muscle to build, the effects of Ultherapy build gradually and full benefits are evident after 60-90 days following treatment.

Are there any side effects?

There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
