How to Tighten Loose Skin with Ultherapy

Looking your best, with natural treatment results that will bring in the compliments, is easier than you think. The key to taking control of our appearance in our late 20s and early 30s is following a plan that includes prevention and enhancement.

Ultherapy is a favorite of ours and our patients because it delivers natural skin-uplifting results. Unlike other treatments, Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved technology to address the same deep layers of the skin as a surgical facelift.

This powerful skin-tightening method uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the formation of new collagen on various levels of skin. As a result, skin is rejuvenated from the inside out. Since it is a non-invasive treatment, there is no downtime or recovery needed – making it the ideal solution for busy lifestyles.  

Some key areas that can benefit from Ultherapy include:

Face/Neck: Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared treatment to perform a face “lift” using ultrasound technology, going significantly deeper than lasers. Wish you could tighten some loose skin around your neck or face? Apprehensive about a surgical facelift? Ultherapy might be the ideal treatment for you.

As we age, collagen – the protein that gives our skin its youthful firm quality – begins to break down. This process is noticeable on our face and neck. Skin becomes loose and wrinkles appear as elasticity is lost. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to generate a thermal effect under the skin, kick-starting your body’s collagen production, which tightens and lifts skin.

Ultherapy also acts as a preventative treatment, making it a popular choice for our millennial patients as well. 

Arms/Elbows: The concept of chicken wings may be fine for fowl but not for humans. If you find yourself opting for shirts with sleeves instead of tank tops because you’re covering up the extra skin on your arms or elbows due to weight loss or aging, Ultherapy will allow you to rethink your wardrobe choices.  

The ultrasound technology is ideal for tightening the skin around the arms. Some patients begin noticing the first results of the procedure in just a few days, and you will continue to see results improve over time with full results at around 4-6 months.

Knees: Men and women struggle with loose skin around the knees, due to aging or a large amount of weight loss that exercise just can’t tone no matter how often you work out. Ultherapy is a perfect, painless solution. The patient may feel a heating sensation and tingling underneath the skin but a topical numbing cream helps minimize any discomfort. Surgical solutions for the skin around the knees come with a hearty amount of downtime and at a larger cost. Ultherapy is a natural solution that many of our patients swear by.
