Time and gravity can lead to sagging skin on the face and neck. This can result in a much older appearance. Surgery used to be the only option for tightening skin. Fortunately, modern technology has allowed for other, non-invasive methods. Ultherapy is currently the most popular treatment in Northwest DC for tightening and lifting skin and getting rid of that turkey neck or recently coined, tech neck.
SAFE AND EFFECTIVE SKIN TIGHTENING IN NORTHWEST DC
Ultherapy provides a safe and effective way to lift the skin without surgery or downtime. It is the only non-invasive skin tightening treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow.
Over time, the collagen in our skin diminishes. This can lead to sagging skin and wrinkles. Ultherapy works by stimulating the body to produce more collagen. Since it takes time for the body to produce collagen, the results of Ultherapy improve over time.
ULTHERAPY PROCEDURE IN NORTHWEST DC
During Ultherapy, focused ultrasound is used to lift and tighten skin. The ultrasound energy is directed at layers of tissue deep within the skin. This encourages the body to produce more collagen. Over time, Ultherapy can be extremely effective. Results are typically seen within three to six months of treatment.
Ultherapy treatment takes approximately one hour to complete and there is absolutely no downtime. Although some redness after the procedure is normal, most patients are able to return to their everyday lives immediately.
The best candidates for Ultherapy are between the ages of 40 and 60 years of age with mild skin sagging. Individuals that do not want to undergo surgery and those that wish to have a touch-up to a prior surgery can also benefit from Ultherapy.
