Ultherapy uses your own body’s natural collagen regeneration process in order to lift sagging skin on the eyebrow, neck, and beneath the chin as well as smoothing the lines and wrinkles on the cleavage which is known as your décolletage. This treatment is FDA-cleared and non-surgical using ultrasound to simulate collagen production. After Ultherapy treatment, which typically takes an hour to an hour and a half for face and neck and a half an hour for chest, there is no downtime and no after treatment needs.

There are no serious side effects associated with Ultherapy treatment, however, your medical professional will go over any possible effects with you before treatment. There may be redness which typically goes away within a few hours or limited swelling or tenderness temporarily. A very small number of people experience temporary bruising or numbness on areas of the skin treated with Ultherapy.

While some patients notice distinct results right after treatment, most of the improvement in skin tightness will occur over two to three months after treatment. It’s difficult to say how long the results will last as it depends on the patient’s own biology, because the treatment works by stimulating collagen production.

Most of the time, patients only require one Ultherapy treatment at Southwest Michigan Dermatology in Kalamazoo. Like the longevity of the 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. Also, because skin ages you may need multiple treatments to slow the effects on aging on the skin.
