As we age, it is inevitable that over time, our skin breaks down and loses its youthful tightness. While once taut, the skin around the face and neck become increasingly slack—often, adding to an aged appearance. Frustrated with the fact that there is little they can do, men and women come to Indiana Plastic Surgery in hopes of restoring a youthful contour to their face, jawline, and neck. You are in luck! With the assistance of Ultherapy, Dr. Robinson is able to address facial skin laxity.

What Is Ultherapy?

Utilizing innovative ultrasound technology, Ultherapy is able to lift and tighten tired skin. In the past, only surgical treatments were able to effectively address lax skin. In fact, Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure to be cleared by the FDA to lift skin surrounding the brows, neck, and under the chin. An added bonus! Ultherapy was recently approved to treat the fine lines and wrinkles that form on a woman’s décolletage.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Harnessing the power of ultrasound energy, Ultherapy works deep below the skin’s surface to restore the skin’s structural layers. With pinpoint accuracy, cellular friction is caused as the targeted tissues are gently heated. Encouraging the body’s natural healing process—the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin are stimulated.

What Is the Ultherapy Treatment Like?

Ultherapy is a relatively simple treatment. Altogether, it takes only 30 to 90 minutes—during which a handpiece is gently directed across your face, neck, or chest to stimulate the underlying collagen. Most of Dr. Robinson’s patients find Ultherapy to be a painless procedure; although, some do report a slight tingling sensation that ends upon completion of the treatment. Afterwards, you are able to return to your normal routine.

What About the Results?

Increased collagen and elastin naturally tighten the skin while essentially filling-in lines and wrinkles. This allows your skin to appear firmer and more toned—and, better yet, reduces many obvious signs of aging like skin laxity, looseness, and sagging.

While you may see a slight improvement immediately following your treatment, your results will become increasingly noticeable as the underlying collagen rebuilds itself over the next six months. Many men and women enjoy the benefits for upwards of a year. As aging is continuous, you may choose to repeat the treatment to further encourage new collagen development.
