As you age, your face and neck begin to sag because of facial volume loss, bony changes and skin laxity. Ultherapy is the first treatment approved by the FDA to address this issue. It works by lifting the soft tissues of the face, brows, chin and neck to stop sagging and to tighten skin. It is the only cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound imaging to ensure the precise deliverance of energy deep under the dermis to tighten the tissue and stimulate collagen growth without cutting or disrupting its surface. If you have mild to moderate skin laxity but are not ready, or do not want surgery, Ultherapy may be a great option for facial rejuvenation. Lynn Wojton, our registered nurse, trains physicians and staff throughout the country on the procedure and provides some of the best Ultherapy treatments in NYC.
Because it is a non-surgical facelift, there is no downtime with Ultherapy, which means you can return to your normal activities the following day. You may notice some results instantly but overall it generally takes 2-3 months for final improvement. It is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that will heat the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin. As an AAAHC accredited surgical facility, we can ensure your comfort during treatment by offering mild sedation. Ultherapy is sometimes performed a second time after a few months to enhance the effects. Side effects such as tingling and numbness are rare with this procedure and resolve over a few weeks.
One new technique we have perfected is called UltraSculpt! The new treatment that combines Ultherapy with CoolSculpting to treat the back, arms, and thighs without surgery and no downtime. First CoolSculpting eliminates the fat and then Ultherapy is used to tighten the loose skin.
