If you are looking for a way to restore youthful firmness to the skin without surgery, now there is a way. Ultherapy is available at Cross Hudson Plastic Surgery, offering our patients the opportunity to firm up trouble spots like the brow, midface, jawline, neck and chest without anesthesia or downtime. The procedure harnesses the latest technology to work deep into the dermal layers for natural, long-lasting results.

Ultherapy is a revolutionary skin tightening procedure that uses focused ultrasound energy to promote the body’s own skin tightening process. The targeted energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two substances produced by the body to give skin its firm, supple appearance. Elastin and collagen are created in abundance during your younger years, but the levels diminish as you age. This leads to skin loosening and the formation of wrinkles. Ultherapy restores collagen and elastin levels to turn back the effects of aging on the skin. Because the therapy works with the body’s own processes, the positive results seen with Ultherapy are both natural and long-lasting.

Ultherapy does not involve the use of needles. The energy that is emitted from the applicator is intensely focused on the treatment area to prevent damage to surrounding skin and tissue. The procedure does not require any anesthesia and you can return to your normal schedule immediately following treatment. Any residual minimal redness, swelling or tingling will subside within a matter of hours.

Because Ultherapy works gradually, noticeable results appear in the weeks and months following treatment. Your skin will become firmer and smoother, with a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. If you have the treatment around your jawline, you should see improvement in definition and a smoother transition between the face and neck. The double chin appearance should also diminish over time.

It is likely you will only need one Ultherapy treatment session to achieve your desirable results. However, you may want schedule a second procedure later to further enhance your outcome. The results of Ultherapy also extend for many months, with most patients finding one treatment per year is sufficient for maintaining their more youthful appearance.

Other benefits of Ultherapy include:

  • No anesthesia needed
  • Works within your body to produce natural results
  • Safe for all skin types and tones
  • No recovery period or special care needed after treatment
  • The procedure is FDA-approved and has a proven record of safety in clinical trials

Ultherapy is an efficient anti-aging treatment for the right candidates. This procedure will not replace a surgical facelift, but can be effective for those with early signs of aging that would like to stop the process in its tracks. It can also produce positive results for patients that are not good candidates for surgery due to their health history or underlying medical conditions.
