Ultherapy non-invasively lifts and tightens the neck, chin, décolletage, and brow, improving lines and wrinkles and sagging skin from the inside out. Using focused ultrasound technology, 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. The results of an Ultherapy treatment appear gradually within 2-3 months after treatment and can improve for up to 6 months after. Considered the gold standard in skin tightening procedures, Ultherapy is great for anyone experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity and who is not quite ready for surgery. It is important to remember that the results of an Ultherapy treatment will not duplicate those of a surgical face or neck lift so a consultation with Dr. Hayag is essential to determine whether one is, in fact, a candidate for treatment.
Ultherapy in office experience:
When you arrive at the office for your treatment, you will be greeted by your Ultherapist and brought to your treatment room to get comfortable. Depending on the areas being treated, you may change into a spa robe to avoid any of the ultrasound gel accidentally getting on your clothing during the treatment. Once you are changed, your Ultherapist will take photos and mark the treatment areas on your skin using a white eye liner. When the markings are complete, Dr. Hayag will join your Ultherapist to “map out” your treatment using the ultrasound imaging handpiece in order to visually identify where the energy will be delivered during your treatment. This ensures your treatment will be comfortable and produce the best results. The treatment takes about 90 minutes and is performed in a relaxed, quiet treatment room. During your treatment you can listen to music, a guided meditation or take a nap. Some patients feel mild discomfort during parts of the procedure which is often described as “zingy heat”.
