Ultherapy® is a noninvasive yet incredibly effective way to lift skin in the forehead, chin, and neck, making it a good alternative to surgical facelift for some of our New Jersey plastic surgery patients. In addition, Ultherapy is FDA-approved for the treatment of facial wrinkles and décolletage lines – expanding the benefits of this procedure to include a smoothing of the skin not offered by surgical methods. During your initial consultation with one of our New Jersey plastic surgeons, we would be happy to discuss Ultherapy, its benefits and limitations, and how effective it may be in helping you achieve your aesthetic goals.
To schedule an Ultherapy consultation, please contact Associates in Plastic Surgery online or by calling (732) 548-3200 today. We maintain offices in Marlboro, Edison, and Warren, New Jersey as well as Staten Island to better serve men and women living throughout our region.
How Ultherapy Works
Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production and trigger a regenerative response below the skin’s surface. This patented technology ensures ideal amounts of energy are delivered to precisely targeted areas, allowing collagen production to gradually lift and soften skin for natural-looking and long-lasting results – typically after just one treatment.
Unlike plastic surgery procedures, Ultherapy will not produce instant results. While many patients will see results quickly – in as little as three days in some cases – it can take two to three months for complete firming and lifting to be achieved. This may make Ultherapy a better option for people who desire a more lifted and smooth appearance, but are not yet good candidates for facelift surgery. However, Ultherapy can also be used to enhance and extend results from a facial plastic surgery procedure, allowing it to offer a wonderful alternative to dermal fillers or laser treatments for patients wishing to prolong facelift and brow lift outcomes.
Here are some examples:
Browlift after Ultherapy treatment leaves a nice, youthful brow position
Neck and jawline improved after a single UItherapy treatment
Great improvement after Ultherapy treatment of chest décolletage
Ultherapy requires no needles, no incisions, and no recovery time. It is entirely possible to visit one of our NJ plastic surgery offices over your lunch hour and return to your normal activities immediately following. Better still, Ultherapy does not require special post-treatment care or necessitate staying out of the sun. Nonetheless, it is advisable to continue caring for your skin following Ultherapy with sunscreen, moisturizers, and gentle cleansers as needed.
Ultherapy is an exciting new alternative to many surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, but may not be perfect for every patient. The best way to learn if Ultherapy is right for your needs is through a personal consultation with one of our experienced New Jersey plastic surgeons. Please call (732) 548-3200 today to schedule an appointment and learn if Ultherapy can help you achieve the look of your dreams.
