One of the most significant changes that occur in aging skin, and one of the primary causes of sagging skin and wrinkling, is the stretching and weakening of our collagen. Ulthera, which was recently featured on the popular Dr. Oz show, is the latest revolutionary development in skin tightening. It utilizes focused ultrasound waves – the very same technology used in many medical devices. This focused energy is delivered to specific layers in the skin, stimulating collagen tightening and production.

Ulthera delivers a safe, carefully controlled amount of heat, contracting and firming the collagen proteins in your skin without burning. Remember, heat causes proteins to contract, which is why a boiled egg shrinks away from the shell and becomes firm.

The Ulthera procedure is comfortable and non-invasive, with little to no downtime. Some patients may experience minor bruising or swelling in the treatment area, which naturally resolves in a matter of days. If any tenderness is present, it can be easily controlled with over-the-counter pain relievers. These symptoms are rare and do not interfere with your normal daily activities. The number of treatments that are needed will vary depending on your skin’s collagen retention and the aging process.

Both options are gentle, effective, and approved by the FDA. They are indicated for treatment of the neck and facial areas including the forehead, jawline, above the lip, and around the eyes. Skin tightening has also shown dramatic results on other areas of the body, such as above the knee, elbow, chest, abdomen, and areas of the face.

There are no special preparations needed before treatment; however, you may be advised to stop taking non-essential blood thinners for two weeks in advance. Be sure to discuss all medications that you are taking with your doctor during your initial consultation. Touch-up appointments may be needed after 12 to 18 months to maintain your firm, youthful skin.

Call Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery at (855) 400 3818 and schedule an appointment with Dr. Jonith Y. Breadon to learn more about comfortable, convenient skin tightening.
