Ultherapy® – Uplifting Ultrasound!
CentreFARS is proud to offer the acclaimed non-surgical lifting procedure, Ultherapy, in Rhode Island.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow; and now it’s also the only non-invasive treatment specifically FDA-cleared to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage! Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin, with no downtime required. Ultherapy treatments can result in tighter, better-fitting skin, from the brow to the chest!
Natural. Non-invasive. No downtime.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the elbow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
How long does an Ultherapy treatment take?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
When will I see results? How long do they last?
After your Ultherapy treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 3-6 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
What Does Ultherapy Treat?
Ultherapy lifts and tightens loose skin, producing a firm and youthful appearance in the treatment area. Depending on your specific concerns, Dr. Doyle may recommend Ultherapy for issues such as fine lines and deep wrinkles, sagging jowls, crepey skin on the neck and chest, and loose skin elsewhere on the body. Most parts of the body with droopy, loose, or sagging skin will respond very well to Ultherapy, making it a fantastic non-surgical alternative to various lift procedures.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to penetrate deeply into the dermis, stimulating the body’s collagen production. Collagen is essential for firm, lifted, and smooth skin but naturally diminishes as we age. By stimulating its production, Ultherapy can tone and tighten the treatment area without incisions, sutures, or scars.
How Long Does it Take to Recover from Ultherapy?
Recovery from Ultherapy is speedy. As a non-surgical treatment, there is no real "downtime" required. While you will need to arrange for a ride to and from our office, you should be able to resume most, if not all, of your daily activities within a few hours of treatment.
Ultherapy may result in temporary muscle weakness, numbness in the treatment area, and paresthesia. These issues typically resolve within a few weeks and are rarely significant enough to interfere with daily life. During your initial consultation, Dr. Doyle will provide information about all potential Ultherapy risks to help ensure you are making the best decision for your needs.
How Can I Prepare for My Ultherapy Procedure?
Ultherapy does not require a significant amount of preparation. However, it is best to come to your procedure with skin free of soap, perfume, and lotion. Because it is non-surgical, you can continue to take all of your medications and supplements without fear of complications.
Can Ultherapy be Combined With Other Procedures?
Ultherapy can correct several concerns, but it is likely not the only treatment you will ever need. Designed to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin, Ultherapy treatment can be complemented with dermal fillers, wrinkle relaxers, skin resurfacing, and more. The best way to learn which combinations will address your concerns is through a one-on-one consultation at our comfortable Greenwich office.
