Ulthera™ Skin Tightening
After many years of careful study of available non-invasive skin tightening and lifting technologies, Dr. Lazarus is pleased to finally find a device, the Ulthera™, that delivers on its promises. We are proud to offer Ultherapy™-a non-invasive treatment for the face and neck that produces visible lifting and tightening of the skin and underlying tissue in as little as one treatment, without needles or surgery.
For the first time ever, Ultherapy enables us to direct sound waves not only into the skin but deep under the skin to the same tissue addressed in surgery. This gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Besides the visible effects of lifting and tightening, there is also an invisible result from Ultherapy with the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness. Ultherapy lifts, tightens, and tones loose skin to counteract the effects of time and gravity. The major advantage of this treatment is that these results can be obtained with no down-time.
Research studies demonstrate Ulthera's beneficial effect on droopy necks and brows. In addition, Ultherapy can improve jowles (hanging skin at the jawline) and tighten cheeks for a refreshed appearance and rejuvenated facial contours. The beauty of Ultherapy is that it is a 45-90 minute procedure that uses the body's own subtle healing response to gently, gradually, and reliably restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Ultherapy requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a noticeable result. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take 2 - 3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen.
There isn't a replacement for the dramatic effects of surgery, but Ultherapy offers a natural, 'no downtime' approach to noticeably improving lax skin.
