Ultherapy in St. Louis uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to tighten and lift loose skin. This non-invasive non-surgical treatment is an alternative to an invasive surgical facelift procedure, which would require a long recovery. No scalpels, incisions, or injections are needed.
This skin-tightening option can be used in a number of areas and is quite versatile. Ultherapy is commonly used on loose skin under the chin near the jawline, on the neck, on the chest, and above the eyebrows. It can be used to resolve the look of a double chin or a turkey wattle, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
The Science Behind Ultherapy
Collagen is a naturally produced protein that is essential for joint health and skin elasticity. When collagen is lost as we age, it causes a loss of skin elasticity. This leads to the formation of sagging loose skin in a number of areas.
Ultherapy treatment helps stimulate the natural production of collagen in the human body. One treatment with Ultherapy technology can last up to two years, and the results can be prolonged even further with a good skincare routine and product use.
Good Candidates for Ultherapy
A good candidate for treatment has slightly loose skin elasticity and is typically over the age of 30. Once a healthcare provider has determined that you are a candidate to receive Ultherapy, they will go over pre-treatment care with you.
There may be options that your provider will recommend to lessen any discomfort during treatment. They may also recommend avoiding certain medications or supplements before your appointment to lower the chances of bruising or bleeding.
The Treatment Process and What to Expect
At the start of the Ultherapy treatment session, your administering medical professional will cleanse the treatment area. They will then apply a gel-like ultrasound substance to the area before the ultrasound wand touches the skin. The procedure itself can last anywhere from 30-60 minutes and is relatively pain-free, with only mild discomfort recorded from patients.
After Your Treatment
After treatment, there is no downtime necessary, so you can return to your normal daily routine immediately. Some patients experience redness, tingling, or mild swelling after treatment; these will subside shortly.
You may see positive effects right after treatment, and results will continue to become apparent over the next six months as new collagen and elastin are created. One treatment lasts nearly two years or even longer with the right after-treatment care plan.
How Much Does Ultherapy Cost?
With most patients needing only one treatment to achieve their desired results using Ultherapy, the price of a course of treatment is rather low. Treatment costs will vary depending on the area of the neck, face, or chest that you are treating.
