What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that tightens and tones lax skin around the face and neck without the cutting, scarring, and anesthesia typically associated with traditional plastic surgery procedures. Many patients come in for Ultherapy® treatments as an alternative to a facelift. Ultherapy® treatments work by targeting your treated areas with ultrasound technology to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin to tighten the skin and smooth away signs of aging over time for natural-looking results.
How Much does Ultherapy® Cost?
The price of your Ultherapy® treatment will vary depending on the size of your treated area, and the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results. To get a better idea of how much your Ultherapy® treatment will cost, come in for a private consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis and her staff.
What are the Benefits of Ultherapy®?
There are many benefits to getting Ultherapy® treatments at Lewis Dermatology & Associates, including:
- Non-invasive treatment
- No downtime or recovery period
- No cutting, scarring, or anesthesia
- Tightens loose or lax skin
- Can be used to treat the brow, neck, chin, and décolletage
What Can I Expect During my Ultherapy® Treatment?
Your Ultherapy® treatment will be performed in-house by Dr. Amy B. Lewis. Each Ultherapy® treatment only takes between 60 and 90 minutes to complete. Your Ultherapy® treatments will involve Dr. Lewis placing the Ultherapy® device onto your treated areas, through which ultrasound technology will penetrate through the skin and target your deeper, structural tissues. While most patients feel comfortable during their procedure without any numbing agents, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your treated areas before treatment upon request.
What Results Can I Expect from Ultherapy®?
Following your Ultherapy® treatment, you may notice some mild redness, tenderness, and swelling around your treated areas. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within a few hours of treatment. Because Ultherapy® works by stimulating collagen production in the body, it may take up to four to six weeks to see the results of your treatment. Dr. Lewis and her team may recommend coming in for multiple Ultherapy® treatments to help you achieve your ultimate desired results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Ultherapy®?
If you are looking for a non-surgical alternative to a facelift that tightens your loose facial skin for natural-looking, rejuvenated results, Ultherapy® treatments may be right for you. The best way to find out if Ultherapy® is right for you is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis. She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you reach all of your aesthetic and skin health goals.
