Using your body’s own natural collagen regeneration process, Ultherapy helps to rejuvenate and lift sagging skin on the neck, eyebrows, and beneath the chin. Ultherapy can also smooth wrinkles and lines on the cleavage, also known as the décolletage. This treatment is FDA-cleared, non-surgical and uses ultrasound to simulate collagen production. Ultherapy treatments usually take an hour to 90 minutes for face and neck and 30 minutes for chest. After your treatment, there is no downtime and no after treatment needs.

A very safe procedure, your medical professional will go over any possible effects with you before you before treatment begins. The main side effect is redness. This redness will typically go away within a few hours and there may be limited swelling or tenderness that lasts temporarily. A very small percentage of people may experience temporary bruising or numbness on areas of the skin treated with Ultherapy.

Typically, improvement in the skin’s tightens happens two to three months after treatment – however, there are some people who notice distinct results immediately following their Ultherapy treatment. It’s difficult to know how long the results will last as it depends on the person receiving the treatment’s own biology and ability to produce collagen.

Usually, patients will only need one Ultherapy treatment at Southwest Michigan Dermatology in Kalamazoo. Like the longevity of the results of Ultherapy treatment, this varies from person to person based on the body’s response to the ultrasound and the patient’s body’s ability to create collagen. If you have any questions about Ultherapy or are interested in the treatment, do not hesitate to contact Southwest Michigan Dermatology’s Laser & Skin Care Center today.
