A New Approach to Anti-Aging
As you get older, your body produces less collagen, which leads to sagging skin, cellulite, and wrinkles. Ultherapy® is a non-invasive anti-aging treatment that works to smoothen cellulite, diminish fine lines and wrinkle and tighten skin by using heat to boost collagen production. This helps to restore a more youthful, refreshed appearance. This treatment is the only FDA-cleared nonsurgical device that allows providers to see precisely which layers of tissue they are treating. While Ultherapy® does not duplicate the effects of cosmetic surgery; it is a great alternative for patients not ready for surgery or for those who want to continue building collagen after a surgical lift. Ultherapy® is safe for all skin tones.
How It Works
Ultherapy® lifts and tightens skin gradually from the inside out — without surgery or downtime. Over time, underlying changes to the skin tissue result in lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Ultherapy® delivers microfocused ultrasound energy non-invasively to heat skin tissue at multiple depths, triggering a natural regenerative response that stimulates the growth of new collagen. Results appear gradually over 2 to 3 months after treatment.
Areas of Treatment
Ultherapy® lifts and tightens the skin on the face and neck non-surgically. This treatment will also improve fine lines and wrinkles of the chest stimulating the production of new collagen revealing natural, noticeable results with no downtime.
What to Expect
Dr. Crawford and his cosmetic team will do everything to make your experience as pleasant and relaxing as possible. These treatments are 30 to 90 minutes long, depending on the areas you want treated. Some people may feel some sensitivity or discomfort during the treatment.
When Will You See Results
