Sagging skin or wrinkles is the most common problem that people face when they start to age. It is one of the first signs of aging, and many women wish to avoid it. When the skin starts losing its collagen and elasticity, it sags. The skin can no longer retain healthy levels of moisture due to this structure change.

There are many treatments available that can help people retain the network of collagen so that the skin can stay tight and firm without any visible signs of aging. One such treatment is Ultherapy. Ultherapy is designed specifically for people who have sagging skin on their neck, chin, or brow. The procedure uses ultrasound technology that helps make the skin tighter and firmer. It focuses specifically on the stimulation of collagen production without causing any impact on the surface of the skin.

The final results of the treatment are visible after two to three months as the skin gradually regains a higher level of collagen, improving the overall structure of the skin. The therapy is suitable for adult men or women.

Before the treatment, a consultation with one of our highly trained providers is scheduled to assess your skin and determine if Ultherapy is right for you. On the day of the procedure, the provider starts by cleansing your skin and applying ultrasound gel. Then the ultrasound imaging device is placed on the skin surface over the area to be treated. We will use the imaging to target the ultrasound energy to the areas that need it, providing the best result possible. During the process, some might feel the energy being transmitted in the depths of their skin. It is a sign that the process of building a network of collagen has started.

For sensitive or anxious clients, BodyLase uses ProNox (a pain-reduction system using nitrous oxide) to control any discomfort. This client-controlled system allows one to stay comfortable throughout the treatment.

The treatment can last 30-90 minutes, depending on which area is being treated or if multiple areas are being treated. There is no downtime so that clients can return to regular activities immediately. Some people experience slight flushing of the skin, swelling, tingling, or tenderness – all are temporary.

Return to the radiant and tight skin of your youth. It’s like having a facelift without the surgery. Feel beautiful and confident again after Ultherapy.
