Ultherapy Skin Tightening

Updated: Feb 9, 2019


What is Ultherapy?


Here at Renove Med Spa, Dr. Michelle Parsons offers Ultherapy, a state of the art medical procedure utilizing focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten sagging skin. No scalpel or anesthesia is needed. Ultherapy is great for people who would like tightening and lifting of facial skin without have a surgical facelift. The Ulthera sound energy passes right through the skin and targets the areas you want lifted.  During a typical 30-60 minute Ultherapy treatment session, an ultrasound applicator is passed over each region of the face. The sound waves emitted deliver small, controlled amounts of energy into the deep layers of skin and soft tissue. The beauty of Ultherapy ‘uplifting ultrasound’ is that it is a face and neck treatment that improves skin laxity in a meaningful way but completely non–surgically.

Jowls Ultherapy works great for sagging jowls, where the skin is fatty, heavy and drooping. Ultherapy is able to reduce this fatty heaviness, tapering the jaw line, for a more youthful look. Ultherapy can restore a more youthful shape to the face from a square to the inverted triangle.

Nasolabial Folds

Ultherapy also works well to minimize the drooping of excess skin that we get along each side of the nose, or lower cheeks. You may think that you need to fill in these areas with a filler, but the real problem may be that fat and loose skin is just falling down due to the effects of gravity. With ultherapy we can target this area and minimize the fattiness and tighten up that skin. Again this will restore the more youthful balance of the face with the center of gravity higher in the cheek areas.



Neck

Ultherapy can tighten up that loose skin underneath our necks as well. The area that Ultherapy works the best is that area just underneath the chin and extending into that curve    of the neck. Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a surgical neck lift. But if you have somewhat loose and fatty skin in your upper neck, hanging just beneath your chin, Ultherapy can improve this area, and improve your profile.



Eyelids and Brow Lift

Perhaps one the most dramatic areas that Ultherapy can improve on without surgery is the eye area and creating a brow lift, helping to lift heavy drooping eyelids. Ultherapy can make the eyes appear more open, more awake, rested and more youthful. This may be subtle change but this small difference can have a significant effect! Our clients really love this part of the Ultherapy results.




Overall Ultherapy works wonders to taper, redefine your facial contours, while eliminating fatty, droopy areas, and lift and tightening skin around the eyes and underneath the chin, for a more youthful sculpted look. The stars in Hollywood do this treatment, and now you have access to this age defying procedure right here in Delaware at the beach.  Dr. Parsons is pleased to bring this cutting edge highly sought after technology to you to help you look your best. If you think you may be candidate for Ultherapy, please give us a call to set up a complimentary consultation with Dr. Michelle Parsons. 302-227-1079.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Unlike other nonsurgical procedures, Ultherapy is able to treat not only the skin itself, but the deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery. This initiates your body’s collagen rebuilding process without disturbing the surface of your skin.  One treatment triggers the body’s own regenerative process of building new collagen to lift and tighten the skin — gradually, naturally, and from the inside out.



What Can I Expect During Treatment?

The actual treatment involves passing an ultrasound hand piece over the facial areas being treated. Gentle heat is delivered to the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or otherwise disrupting. You will be pre-treated with Tylenol and or Ibuprofen. Otherwise no pain medication is needed. In just 30 to 60 minutes, your body’s own healing responses will be signaled to gently and gradually restore skin and underlying tissue. Best of all, this requires no preparation or recuperation! Aside from lifting and tightening, Ultherapy also stimulates new collagen production, which assists in maintaining a youthful appearance. Lifting takes place primarily over 2 to 3 months. You will be able to immediately return to normal activities. Skin may appear flushed temporarily. There may also be swelling, tingling or tenderness which is mild and temporary.
