Skin Tightening Q & A

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a noninvasive, FDA-cleared procedure that tightens and lifts areas near your chin, neck, and brows, and reduces chest lines and wrinkles. 

This revolutionary technology utilizes microfocused ultrasound, or sound energy, to firm your skin without downtime. It bypasses your skin’s surface to reach depths not possible with many other cosmetic devices.

What should I expect during skin tightening?

Prior to skin tightening with Ultherapy, your practitioner reviews your medical history and examines problem areas. 

During the procedure, they use an innovative device to apply ultrasound energy to the treatment area to stimulate new collagen formation just below your skin’s surface.

You might feel the energy as it penetrates your skin at precise depths, and the level of comfort varies from person to person. The procedure might last about 30-90 minutes.

What happens after skin tightening?

After your treatment new collagen begins to form, but it might take two to six months for you to achieve the desired outcome. 

There’s no downtime after the procedure, so you can resume normal everyday activities right away. For several hours after Ultherapy skin tightening, you might experience:

  • Slight redness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Tingling

You may need just one skin tightening treatment to experience optimal results. Your practitioner lets you know if undergoing more than one skin tightening session best matches your personalized needs.

Is skin tightening right for me?

Although skin tightening at Serenity Women’s Care doesn’t duplicate a surgical face-lift, it’s an excellent noninvasive alternative if you aren’t ready for invasive surgery or you’d like to extend the effects of a past surgery.

You may be a good candidate for the procedure if your skin has some degree of laxity and looks or feels less firm than you’d like. Skin tightening reduces skin sagging, but isn’t a weight loss treatment, as it doesn’t replace healthy eating and regular exercise.

To achieve optimal anti-aging results, your aesthetic specialist might recommend additional cosmetic procedures, such as fillers, microneedling, Botox, or laser hair removal.

If you’re ready for tighter, lifted, younger-looking skin without downtime, call the specialists at Serenity Women's Care for an appointment today, or use the online booking tool.
