It’s only natural – some mornings, we’ve all dreamed of seeing a tighter, firmer complexion staring back in the mirror. Now you can get a more youthful look without surgery thanks to Ultherapy at our med spa and skin care center in Santa Rosa. This revolutionary nonsurgical treatment tightens and lifts the skin and underlying tissue. Results are anything but subtle and can help you take years off of your appearance.
Ultherapy targets drooping and sagging skin on the face, particularly around the eyes, jaw line, and neck. These areas have traditionally been addressed through facelift, brow lift, and eyelid surgery, but now a nonsurgical option is available for people who aren’t quite ready to “go under the knife.” Ultherapy is a 30-minute procedure that uses your body’s own subtle healing response to gradually restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue.
How Ultherapy Treatments Work
FDA-approved Ultherapy is a fast and effective rejuvenation treatment for toning and tightening your facial skin. This treatment uses ultrasound energy to cause the tissue below the skin to contract, gently and gradually building new collagen on the inside without disruption of the surface of the skin.
A clinical study of Ultherapy conducted at Northwestern University revealed significant lifting of the brow line in patients following treatment. Often, what looked like excess skin on the upper eyelids was instead “hooding” created by drooping brow skin. By causing a tightening of the skin that raised the brow, patients reported a more “open” eye, and looked more rested and refreshed as well.
What to Expect from Your Ultherapy Treatment
Treatment takes only about 30 minutes. Recovery time is minimal and over-the-counter medication can be used if necessary to maintain comfort after treatment. Regeneration of collagen begins immediately afterwards, with the full effect being revealed after about 3 months as collagen gradually builds.
Highly trained Allegro MedSpa skin health professionals will custom-design your skin rejuvenation program, and in addition to Ultherapy may recommend BOTOX®, Fraxel® or IPL photofacial skin rejuvenation. All treatments are supervised by on-site, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Francisco Canales and Dr. Heather Furnas for added peace of mind.
