What Is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a noninvasive procedure that is designed to lift and firm a patient’s skin, thereby removing wrinkles and creating a younger appearance. The results are similar to a facelift, minus the overly tight appearance. Ultherapy® is a relatively new procedure, but it is approved by the FDA and performed for patients in League City, TX by the doctors at Clear Lake Dermatology.
How is Ultherapy® Performed?
Ultherapy® utilizes ultrasound waves to penetrate the layers of skin where collagen is found. These ultrasound waves stimulate collagen production, which almost immediately lifts the skin and smooths out wrinkles.
A typical Ultherapy® procedure lasts between 30 and 60 minutes. Many patients report moderate to severe pain during the procedure, so a topical anesthetic is often applied to the skin before treatment begins.
Patients are usually free to continue with their normal activities after an Ultherapy® procedure. They may experience some tingling and numbness, but this should pass after a brief period.
