Do you want firmer, younger looking skin but don’t want to go under the knife? A few decades ago surgery was the only way to combat signs of facial aging, but non-surgical facial rejuvenation options are now in high demand. But is there a non-surgical way to tighten the skin.

Non-surgical skin tightening

Nowadays, there are a variety of skin tightening solutions that don’t involve the use of a scalpel. Most of these non-surgical skin tightening treatments use laser, radiofrequency, or ultrasound energy to firm and tone the skin.

Skin Tightening with Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that uses clinically proven ultrasound energy to lift and tone sagging skin. It reduces lines and wrinkles on the face, neck and décolletage, and also lifts the brow area. Ultherapy provides a subtle to moderate improvement in the appearance of the face without surgery, sedation, or downtime.

How Ultherapy works

The Ultherapy handpiece deposits focused ultrasound energy on the deep skin layer below the surface, which is the fibrous tissue that is normally targeted during a surgical facelift. The ultrasound waves heat and contract the tissue, resulting in tighter, more lifted skin. The heat also initiates the production of new collagen.

Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after Ultherapy treatment. There will be some tightening and lifting of the skin over the following 2-3 months, but improvements can continue for up to 6 months, as collagen stores increase.

Touch-up Ultherapy treatments are recommended every 1-2 years.
