Ultherapy is a precise non-surgical tissue lifting treatment. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it is the first-ever aesthetic treatment that incorporates ultrasound imaging for viewing tissue below the skin’s surface. The Ulthera System is considered a first-of-its-kind technology, unprecedented in the marketplace, and as such underwent a 510(k) “de novo” review by the FDA. With just one of our Orange County Ultherapy treatments, the regenerative process is initiated, but the full effect will build over time, usually, in the course of two to three months.
During the FDA clinical trial, 9 out of 10 patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line, resulting in a more open, refreshed appearance overall. Patients reported firmer, tighter, more fit-looking skin in other areas of the face and neck as well. The ability to utilize an established technology to both see below the skin and then treat it with great precision, helps ensure both safety and a significant outcome. There isn’t a replacement for the dramatic effects of surgery, but finally there is a non-invasive approach to significant skin tightening with our Ultherapy in Newport Beach.
Ultherapy is a revolutionary anti-aging, skin rejuvenation treatment that uses focused ultrasound to tighten loose skin. Many patients achieve a dramatic improvement in skin quality after one treatment, while others undergo several treatments for a more thorough facial rejuvenation. Ultrasound is a type of energy different than laser light with the advantage of leaving the surrounding skin and tissues unaffected.
The targeted areas of skin are heated, contracting the existing collagen fibers, and triggering collagen production within the skin, called “tissue-remodeling.” Your skin continues to improve in firmness and quality over the following several months as higher levels of natural collagen are produced within the skin layers.
The treatment requires about 30 to 90 minutes to complete (based upon the number of areas to be tightened). There is some discomfort associated with the treatment, but as it is short duration, most patients do not mind, particularly due to the long-term results! It is better not to apply a numbing cream as that can reduce how well the procedure works. Most patients think it is well worth putting up with the funny sensation, which is reported to feel like a prickling heat on your skin.
The benefits of this treatment include:
If you are tired of looking in the mirror and seeing your skin beginning to sag, look less firm, or you see loose skin under your neck or chin, you are probably a good candidate for Ultherapy. Most patients who undergo this treatment are age 30 or older who want to restore a more youthful, supple, firm quality to facial skin.
Ultherapy can tighten and firm skin, but for extreme cases of skin laxity, sagging, wrinkles, and lines, a surgical facelift is likely the right treatment. For younger patients who want firmer, more supple skin without surgery, Ultherapy is one of the most effective non-surgical treatments available.
Any facial rejuvenation treatment should be performed by a master of the art. Dr. Grover is a board-certified plastic surgeon with a reputation for excellence, and consistently listed as a “Top Doctor” by U.S. News and World Report, Los Angeles Magazine, and on realself, where he has a 5-star rating, and where you can read countless positive reviews. You can be confident when your Ultherapy treatment is performed at his Newport Beach clinic, where the entire staff is warm, caring, and professional.
While this is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure, your face may appear reddened after treatment. Many patients feel fine after treatment, but some experience minor sensitivity. Almost every patient will feel normal after treatment, and simply return to work or other activities. If you have tenderness or discomfort, over-the-counter pain medication will keep you comfortable.
If your skin appears reddened, it typically fades within an hour or so. You can apply makeup directly after your treatment. You have no restrictions, other than avoiding hot tubs or saunas for a week and sleeping on pillowcases that have not be rinsed with fabric softeners.
The beauty of Ultherapy treatments is that the results appear completely natural, as it is your own natural collagen that produces the firming effect. However, you need patience to see the full results. People vary in when they reach maximum results, but you should see a significant difference in about three to six months, as the natural collagen firms and tightens your skin.
