he bodybyZ plastic surgery center is among the first providers in Rhode Island and all of New England to offer the Ultherapy procedure for lifting and toning loose, lax skin without surgery. Using ultrasound technology to strengthen the skin from the inside out, your skin will gradually reflect a more refreshed, uplifted appearance. And the best part is there is no invasive surgery required!
How does Ultherapy work?
By tightening, lifting and toning the loose skin of the neck, face, and under the chin, Ultherapy is able to nearly reverse the effects of gravity, aging, and time. The procedure gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten the skin without even breaking the surface. The skin itself responds by growing new collagen; causing a gradual tightening and firming and a natural lift and revitalization over time.
In addition to improving the outer appearance of the skin, Ultherapy is one of the only non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures that also targets and strengthens the deeper, foundational layer of tissue that supports the higher layers. By addressing both the surface and support layers, skin and tissue can be totally transformed, safely and with little-to-no downtime.
The skin enhancements from Ultherapy are immediate and do not interfere in everyday life. Generally, you may experience a flush to your skin, but the redness dissipates within a few hours, at most. You should be able to return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
Ultherapy shows excellent results after one clinical procedure. However, if you have an excess of laxity to your skin, you may wish to seek additional treatments. The full effect of the body’s natural regenerative process begins almost instantaneously and gradually builds over the course of two to three months. Most patients see a visible lifting and toning of loose skin within days, even hours, of their visits.
One of the primary areas that Ultherapy helps to enhance is your brow area. Over time, your brow can descend and make your eyes appear smaller under excess skin. Ultherapy lifts your brow, reduces all excess skin and gives a more refreshed appearance.
Ultherapy can also be used to soften the vertical lines around the mouth. Nine times out of ten patients will express better-fitting skin around the mouth, face, and areas of the neck as well!
Who is an ideal candidate for Ultherapy?
Patients with visibly loose skin are ideal candidates for Ultherapy. Both men and women between 30 and 65 are our most common patients, as are people who are not ready to commit to the surgical side effects and downtime of a facelift. Ultherapy is an excellent, non-invasive alternative with no downtime that lifts and tightens facial skin in as little at 90 minutes. Patients who are willing to see gradual results over the next few months and into the coming years will find Ultherapy perfect for their unique needs.
