Lift & Tighten Your Face Without Surgery!

Today on Fab At Any Age, our host Andrea Warshaw-Wernick takes us to Dr. Joshua Zimm’s office in NYC. Dr. Zimm shares with us the non-surgical, non-invasive procedure Ultherapy.

Ultherapy has been in the US for about 2 years – the Only FTDA approved non-invasive procedure with a specific lift indication, having been cleared to lift skin on the brow as well as on the neck and under the chin.

With Ultherapy, there is no down time and you get natural-looking results which build gradually over 2-3 months, with the collagen-building process at times continuing for up to 6 months.

What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment for the face and neck that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose or sagging skin without any downtime. It is the ONLY non-invasive procedure FDA-approved to actually lift skin on the neck, on the brow and under the chin.

Key Benefits of Ultherapy:

• There’s no downtime.
• It takes just 60 minutes
• It’s non-surgical
• Most people only need one treatment

How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy uses tried-and-true ultrasound to see and then treat the skin’s foundational layers – including what’s typically addressed in cosmetic surgery. It deposits focused energy that bypasses the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. As a result, skin will actually begin to lift and tone over time. In other words, Ultherapy reconditions and strengthens the skin from the inside out.

Because Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, physicians – for the first time ever – can actually see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure that the energy is delivered precisely to where it will be most productive.

What kind of results are expected?
Natural-looking results build gradually over 2-3 months, and the collagen-building process can continue for up to 6 months (no one has to know you had any work done; they just notice you look better with each passing day!).

Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.

Ultherapy now has improved comfort!
Continual scientific and clinical research is conducted to enhance the treatment, and thanks to a recent development, the Ultherapy treatment is now more comfortable for patients. By adjusting treatment energy levels, this new procedure approach improves patient comfort without impacting the efficacy of the treatment.

FDA-approval information:
The Ulthera System (and Ultherapy treatment) is FDA-approved to treat the face and neck. It is the only non-invasive procedure with a specific lift indication, having been cleared to lift skin on the brow (September 2009) as well as on the neck and under the chin (October 2012). While other treatments can only claim to tighten, Ultherapy can lift and tighten.
