As with other ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen that allows Dr. Nemerofsky to plan where the energy will be directed. This same applicator is then used to deliver low levels of focused heat to just the right depth below the skin to achieve a positive effect, all the while leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed.
Your skin's response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over time.
The beauty of Ultherapy is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body's own subtle healing response to gently, gradually-and reliably-restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Ultherapy requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take 2 - 3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen.
There isn't a replacement for the dramatic effects of surgery, but Ultherapy offers a natural, 'no downtime' approach to noticeably improving lax skin.
