Ultherapy® Skin Tightening
Ultherapy® Skin Tightening
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive, ultrasound-based treatment to lift, tighten, and improve your chin, neck, and chest. While Ultherapy® does not duplicate the results of a facelift, it is an alternative for people who are looking for skin lifting and tightening, but do not want surgery. Ultherapy® may help you achieve a fresher and more youthful look from your brow to your chest. Concept Medical in Ottawa is excited to offer this new skin lifting and tightening system. Please note, results vary.
Ultherapy is a powerful skin tightening treatment used for the neck, chin, and chest. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound energy to go deep beneath the skin to the level at which a surgical facelift occurs. Once delivered, the energy causes your body to lift and tighten the skin, with results occurring gradually over the following months. Please note, results vary. Unique to Ultherapy® is the use of real-time ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring energy is delivered precisely. Ultherapy is considered a one-time, treatment, although some patients at Concept Medical in Ottawa have chosen to have multiple treatments due to their excellent results.
Immediately after treatment some patients may notice an instantaneous tightening effect. However, results from Ultherapy usually become notable after 3-12 months as the body forms new, stronger collagen resulting in lifted and tighter skin. There is no downtime following Ultherapy and you can resume your normal activities immediately. Data from a study in which patients had Ultherapy treatment on one side of the face and not the other demonstrated an increase in the rate of collagen production. Specifically for collagen Types I and III, the rate of collagen production on the Ultherapy-treated side was 42% higher on average compared to the untreated side. However, it’s important to remember that individual results may vary.
Ultherapy has been used safely in over 350,000 treatments worldwide, while ultrasound energy technologies have been used in the medical field for more than 50 years. In addition, every Ultherapy practitioner at Concept Medical in Ottawa has received extensive procedural training, so you can feel confident in choosing Ultherapy with us. However, as with all non-surgical cosmetic treatments, common and rare adverse events are possible. The most common side effects from Ultherapy are mild tenderness and bruising.
Treatment ranges from 1-2 hours depending on the areas treated.
Ultherapy is considering a one-time, long-lasting treatment. Although we all continue to age, the changes that occur as a result of Ultherapy are considered to last a very signifiant time.
