Ultherapy was voted the number one nonsurgical skin tightening device, and we couldn’t agree more! As we’ve mentioned before, but stress the need to mention over and over in case someone missed it, certain lasers are a big no no during the extremely sunny summer months. The risks you can incur if you have sun exposure after a laser treatment are just not worth the risk. Not to mention, you can make the things you are trying to fix get worse, rather than better. The good news is, during those long sunny summer months, there are things that you can and should focus on that have minimal to no downtime, and are no risk at all with sun exposure afterwards. Our favorite summer procedure, really all year long, for skin tightening is Ultherapy.
Ulthera has the first ad only FDA clearance to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and above the brow noninvasively. It is also cleared to treat the chest area for improvement of fine lines and wrinkles. The system allows us to safely image the areas we are treating with ultrasound waves to ensure an optimal treatment experience. It works by delivering ultrasound energy non-invasively and selectively into the dermal layer. Over time, weak collagen is reorganized and strengthened with the growth of new collagen, which tightens and lifts the skin. This usually takes around a 3 month period of time to see the full results, but the results are permanent.
