When to Consider Ultherapy® Skin Tightening

You feel vibrant and full of energy, but somehow your face isn’t keeping up with your spirit. At rest, your face looks tired, even when you’re not. If you’d like to erase the signs of aging and lift your face without surgery, consider Ultherapy®.

Aging skin is thinner, drier, and looser than youthful skin. While a facelift can create the illusion of facial tightness, it ultimately involves stretching thin skin thinner and removing the excess. 

In contrast, Ultherapy® is an ultrasound-based technology that improves the quality of your skin. Stronger, thicker skin is naturally more lifted and youthful looking. Nonsurgical Ultherapy improves your skin to resolve common issues of aging, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Creases
  • Sagging
  • Loss of volume

Joon Lee, MD, and our team of aesthetic experts at SeeBeyond Beauty recommend Ultherapy to women and men in our Scarsdale, New York, office who aren’t quite ready for or simply don’t want a surgical facelift. Is it time to consider Ultherapy? Answer the following questions to find out. 

Do you want to avoid incisions and stitches?

Few people want to deliberately cut their skin, but sometimes plastic surgery is the best option when you have severe sagging and wrinkling. However, if you’re not at that point, you can avoid surgery as long as possible — maybe even forever — if you turn to Ultherapy. 

Rather than relying on scalpels and stitches, Ultherapy uses the power of ultrasound to stimulate your skin to heal and rejuvenate itself. You don’t have to stretch and cut your skin. Instead, Ultherapy prompts skin to produce more strengthening proteins, such as collagen and elastin. 

Ultherapy is the only procedure that’s been FDA-cleared to lift skin on your neck, under your chin, and on your brow. In addition, Ultherapy improves lines and wrinkles on your décolletage. Worldwide, Ultherapy has tightened and rejuvenated facial, neck, and chest skin more than a million times.  

Has your facial “triangle” reversed itself?

A youthful face is characterized by a triangle shape, where the long base of the triangle corresponds with your forehead and the short, angled point corresponds with your chin. A youthful triangle means that the balance of your face is upward, with the focus near your eyes and brows. 

As you age, however, the triangle reverses. The heavy base sits around your jowls and jawline, where a great deal of your skin, fat, and tissue has moved due to thinning and gravity. The focal point of your face is no longer your eyes, but around your sagging jowls and neck. 

Ultherapy tightens your lower and mid face by stimulating collagen production and cell renewal. The skin that had sagged, bagged, and drifted downward regains its shape. The result is a much more youthful and lifted look. 

Do you have jowls or a crepey neck?

Nothing ages you more than thin, sagging skin around your jawline and chin. Younger people sometimes develop wrinkles if they’ve had a lot of sun damage — but they don’t have jowls or a crepey neck. 

You develop a “turkey neck” and jowls once your skin starts to get thinner and the supporting muscles underneath loosen or atrophy. Instead of bouncing back into place after it’s stretched, your skin hangs and sags. That’s because the skin lacks elastin, a protein you produce plentifully when you’re young but not as you age. 

Your skin also sags because it’s become thinner. The supporting matrix of collagen protein strands breaks down, like a truss that can’t support a house or a bridge anymore anymore. Without support, the structure sags. 

Ultherapy’s ultrasound energy instigates a healing and rebuilding process in your skin. Gradually, you produce more collagen and elastin to buttress your skin. 

Do you want to look better without downtime?

Most women and men find Ultherapy sessions easy to tolerate. Afterward, your skin may be pink or sensitive for a few hours or even a couple of days. But you don’t have to take time off or wear bandages as you would with surgery. In fact, you can go back to your ordinary activities directly after your treatment. 

Another bonus is that you may only need one treatment. Depending on your goals, you may benefit from more than one Ultherapy session, and yearly touch-ups can keep your skin thick, pliant, and lifted. 

Be aware that Ultherapy isn’t an instant fix. Because the ultrasound energy works with your body’s healing and rebuilding processes, it takes several months for your skin to become stronger and more lifted. 

Whether you want Ultherapy to remedy current sagging or prevent sagging in the future, the first step is booking an appointment. You can do so directly through our online form, or just phone or text our friendly team at 914-533-1802.
