What is Ultherapy?

With time, the skin starts to lose some of its elasticity. This means that you may start to notice more sagging or drooping than you would like, particularly on your face, chin, and neck. Some patients decide to get a facelift to tighten the skin, while others prefer a non-invasive approach. If you are in that second category, we recommend Ultherapy, an FDA-approved procedure that tightens and lifts the skin without the need for surgery.

Veritas Plastic Surgery provides Ultherapy treatments to patients who wish to reduce sagginess or remove wrinkles from the upper chest. We welcome you to learn more about this non-invasive option available to our patients in Walnut Creek, CA.

How Exactly Does It Work?

Ultherapy employs ultrasonic energy, just as if you were to receive an ultrasound. This energy is delivered precisely to the part of your body or face where you are hoping to achieve skin tightening results. The ultrasonic energy goes deeper than other treatments, triggering the body’s production of collagen. This gradually produces a skin-tightening effect that is completely natural.

Because it relies so heavily on natural collagen production, Ultherapy is a good option for younger patients (between 30 and 55), whose bodies still effectively produce collagen. However, even some older patients have great results from Ultherapy. To learn whether you are eligible, schedule a consultation with Dr. Ting.

Why Do People Choose Ultherapy Over Other Skin Treatments?

Ultherapy is an ideal option for patients who wish to achieve significant anti-aging effects but are not yet ready to have a facelift. The Ultherapy process is completely non-invasive, meaning no anesthesia, no incisions, and no scarring. And, for most patients, results can be achieved with just a single session.

Another reason to choose Ultherapy is that its effects are significant and tend to look completely natural. This is because Ultherapy simply jumpstarts your production of collagen, one of the natural building blocks of skin, and a critical ingredient for achieving youthful skin elasticity. The results will leave you looking and feeling confident and refreshed.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Before you decide to get Ultherapy, you may have some questions about how long the results will last.

The duration can vary from patient to patient, but for most men and women, the results of Ultherapy last for somewhere between 18 and 24 months.

Of course, there are ways to extend your results, whether that means scheduling a follow-up Ultherapy session or talking with Dr. Ting about supplementing your results with dermal fillers.
