Ultherapy in South Portland, Maine

ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate the skin. It is FDA-approved and primarily targets the face, neck, and décolletage area to address signs of aging and skin laxity.

Unlike traditional facelift surgeries, Ultherapy does not involve incisions or surgical procedures. Instead, it utilizes focused ultrasound energy to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and tissue tightening.

Why Ultherapy?

  • Tightens Skin
  • Youthful radiance
  • Precision targeting
  • Zero recovery
  • Progressive improvement
  • Deep renewal

One of Ultherapy®'s biggest advantages is its zero downtime. After your session, you can immediately resume work and daily activities, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a convenient skin-tightening solution.

While Ultherapy® and Thermage® both aim to tighten skin, they differ in their approach. Ultherapy® uniquely employs ultrasound technology to target skin's deeper layers, offering more pronounced results within a shorter duration compared to Thermage®, which uses radiofrequency energy.

Expect to see Ultherapy®'s full effects unfold over two to three months as your body boosts its natural collagen production, leading to tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Results vary from person to person in terms of speed and duration.

Most clients report minimal discomfort during Ultherapy®. Sensations vary but are temporary and a sign that the collagen-building process has been initiated. We strive to make your experience as comfortable as possible.

Ideal candidates for Ultherapy® are individuals noticing mild to moderate skin laxity, with skin that feels and appears less firm. This includes a lowered eyebrow line, sagging skin on the neck, and the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the chest.

While Ultherapy® does not replicate the results of a surgical facelift, it is an excellent option for those not ready for surgery or looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery by targeting the deeper skin layers for a natural lift and toning.

Many clients see results with just one Ultherapy® treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy, and the individual's collagen-building process, some may benefit from more than one treatment.

Ultherapy® is FDA-cleared and has been used safely in over a million treatments worldwide. It is backed by over a decade of clinical research, ensuring a safe and effective treatment option for facial lifting and tightening.

The results from Ultherapy® can last for over a year, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help provide more control over the aging process.

Some clients may observe initial effects right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2-3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin, and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest.

The cost of Ultherapy® varies depending on the areas being treated and the specific needs of the patient. Typically, the price ranges from moderate for smaller areas like the brow to higher for larger or multiple treatment areas such as the full face and neck. It's best to schedule a consultation with Med Matrix to receive a personalized treatment plan and an accurate cost estimate. Remember, investing in Ultherapy® is investing in a natural, non-surgical lift with long-lasting results, making it a valuable treatment option for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance.

Benefits of Ultherapy

During an Ultherapy treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver precise ultrasound energy to the targeted areas. The practitioner will monitor the ultrasound imaging to ensure accurate delivery of the energy. The energy heats the deeper layers of the skin, which triggers a natural regenerative response and the production of new collagen fibers.

The procedure typically takes around 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the treatment area. The intensity of the treatment can be adjusted based on the individual’s specific needs and comfort level. Most individuals experience some mild discomfort or a tingling sensation during the procedure, but it is generally well-tolerated.

Following an Ultherapy session, there is no downtime, and individuals can resume their normal activities immediately. Some temporary redness, swelling, or sensitivity in the treated area may occur, but these effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days.

The results of Ultherapy develop gradually as the new collagen fibers form over time. Some individuals may notice an initial lifting and tightening effect, but the full benefits become more apparent after a few months as collagen continues to rebuild. Results can last for several years, although the natural aging process will eventually affect the skin again.

Ultherapy is a customizable treatment, and the number of sessions required can vary depending on the individual’s skin condition and desired results. While some individuals may achieve their desired outcomes with a single treatment, others may benefit from multiple sessions spaced several months apart to achieve optimal results.

It’s important to note that Ultherapy is not a replacement for surgical facelift procedures, especially for individuals with significant skin sagging or excess tissue. However, it can be a viable option for those seeking a non-invasive approach to address mild to moderate skin laxity and signs of aging.
