Skip Surgery and Try Ultherapy for Your Skin-Tightening Needs

Many people turn to surgery to tighten skin and minimize wrinkles, but what about you? Perhaps you’re looking for a less invasive way to get tighter, smoother skin around your eyebrows, neck, chin, and décolletage. If this is the case, treatment is available in the form of UltherapyⓇ.

Dr. Mark Kim and the rest of our team at Eterna Vein & Medical Aesthetics in Puyallup, Washington, want to offer you a truly revolutionary option for aging skin. Ultherapy is a safe, FDA-approved, noninvasive treatment that provides smoother, younger-looking skin in otherwise hard-to-treat areas.

Ultherapy: A revolutionary treatment option

Ultherapy is a collagen-regenerating procedure that can be used to treat wrinkles in all the areas mentioned above. It’s a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift. When you choose Ultherapy, you get a procedure that’s much less intensive with a milder recovery program. And Ultherapy doesn’t require anesthesia, which can be an unnecessary danger. 

There are a number of reasons why Ultherapy is so revolutionary. For one, it only takes 30-90 minutes, depending on the number of areas you’re choosing to treat. For another, incisions are unnecessary, and you only require minimal preparation before the procedure. Finally, some areas that are much harder to treat with more traditional options, such as the neck and under the chin, can be treated successfully with Ultherapy.

How Ultherapy works

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to raise the temperature under the skin. The heat penetrates the three layers of surface wrinkles, skin, and muscle in order to kickstart collagen production, which, in turn, strengthens the skin and intensifies it’s elastic nature. This results in smoother, firmer skin with less sagging.

Results you should expect from Ultherapy 

There’s very little downtime, so you should be able to go back to work and participate in your other regular activities shortly after the procedure. Most people start to see results in the first few days, although everyone’s ability to produce collagen is a little different.

Results typically last for about three months or so, although they might last longer, depending on your body’s response. Eventually, the aging process begins again, and the results start to fade. If you’re interested in additional sessions, they’re typically recommended around every six months for long-lasting results.

Is Ultherapy really a better choice than a facelift?

Ultherapy is the first noninvasive option for treating wrinkles, so we think it’s the best alternative to a facelift available today. It doesn’t have the kinds of risks associated with a facelift, and it has very few side effects. 

Some people experience heat and tingling effects during the procedure, but afterward there are usually no side effects but mild redness and swelling, which minimize with time. Rarely, some patients experience some numbness and bruising, but these usually disappear after a day or two.   

We believe that if you’re looking for an option to minimize your wrinkles and maximize your skin’s collagen production and elasticity, Ultherapy is the safest, least invasive procedure available.
