One way you can achieve slimming, tightening, and lifting is through Ultherapy Treatment, a noninvasive way to firm areas like the chin, neck, brow, and décolleté. It’s based on the same technology used in radiology for ultrasound imaging (i.e. during pregnancy): The machine uses sound wave energy to go through your skin to penetrate the muscle of the area you’re treating. The machine has multiple attachments used to allow for superficial, medium, and deep penetration. It causes the muscle to contract and shrink, which aesthetically results in a firming, wrinkle-smoothing, and contouring effect.
WHAT CAN ULTHERAPY DO FOR YOU?
Many of our Scottsdale clients have Ultherapy performed on the face and neck to address:
- Lowered eyelids
- A slightly drooping brow
- Lost chin and jawline definition
- Marionette lines and folds
- A downturned mouth
- Aging cheeks
Depending on your needs, the entire face may be treated for an overall tighter, more toned appearance, or we may focus on specific, individual areas.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?
Ultherapy is an ideal solution for men and women who have mild to moderate sagging on the face and neck, but aren’t yet ready to undergo more invasive surgical procedures, such as a facelift or brow lift. In general, the vast majority of our Ultherapy clients are in their 30s and experiencing:
- A slightly lowered brow line
- Loss of jawline definition
- Mild sagging skin
- Fine lines
During your private consultation Leah will review your medical history and discuss your aesthetic goals to help you determine if Ultherapy is in your best interest.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE
Your Ultherapy in Phoenix will be performed in the comfort of Leah’s treatment room. It is completely non-invasive, comfortable, and does not require any anesthesia. Depending on the size of the treatment area, your appointment can last anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes.
To begin, we will thoroughly cleanse and prep your skin. We will then apply gel to the treatment area and gently place the ultrasound applicator on your skin. From there, we will visualize the underlying structures of your skin to identify precisely where to administer the energy.
To perform the procedure, we will slowly move the ultrasound applicator over the treatment area, delivering small, controlled amounts of energy to the soft tissues. The ultrasound energy will target the deepest layer of your skin, leaving the surface layers intact and unharmed.
WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED AFTER ULTHERAPY?
The Ultherapy procedure creates a rejuvenated appearance in a natural way. It improves sagging skin due to aging. After treatment, you may experience slight lifting & toning, minor swelling, and slight tenderness. While you may see immediate results, further improvements will develop within 2 to 3 months. Your skin will feel tighter, more toned, softer and smoother. Some patients have even seen improvement continue up to 6 months after their procedure. Typically, results are long lasting, and it may be several years before most patients consider other rejuvenating treatments.
