Ultherapy in Washington, DC
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive procedure for lifting skin on the neck, chin, and brow. The Center for Laser Surgery is proud to offer this innovative non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to tighten and lift sagging to skin without the need for painful incisions.
What Does Ultherapy Treat?
Ultherapy targets mild to moderate loose or sagging skin on the face, neck, and brow region. By tightening the skin around the brow, excess skin found around the eyes is also lifted and can open up the eyes for a more refreshed appearance. Tightening the skin on the face and neck reduces volume loss while reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and eliminating “turkey neck” and “double chin”.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to target deep layers below the skin without any incisions. This deeper layer of skin acts as the foundation on which healthier, younger-looking skin is built. The ultrasound technology used in Ultherapy has been FDA approved for treating sagging skin.
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
During your treatment session, the Ultherapy device is passed over the treatment area. Patients may experience a slight discomfort in the areas where ultrasound energy is being delivered, but this sensation is temporary and is a sign that the treatment is working. Typically there is no downtime after the procedure and patients can return to their normal activities immediately afterward.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients see results within 2-3 months of their initial treatment sessions, with optimal results appearing approximately 6 months after treatment. Ultherapy stimulates the body’s production of collagen and collagen continues to grow and improve the skin’s appearance for several months. Often results can last up to a year or longer. Patients will need occasional touch-ups to maintain youthful results as the skin continues to age overtime.
