As we age, our faces will change gradually. The skin and tissue on your face will lose elasticity and tone, which can lead to sagging skin. If you want to correct this problem but don’t want to undergo a facelift, you may want to consider Ultherapy. This ultrasound treatment tightens the skin and is one of the most effective ways to rejuvenate facial tissue. If this treatment sounds like it could work for you, here are some important things to keep in mind.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Ultrasound Skin Tightening?

If your skin is starting to become “crepey” or has started to sag, you’re likely a good candidate for Ultherapy. This skin treatment will likely yield positive results for you if you notice that your skin is not as firm as it once was. Ultherapy is ideal for several areas of the face and neck including the eyelids and lower brow line. You can also use it to tighten loose neck skin and sagging skin under the neck. Some patients also use Ultherapy to get rid of wrinkles and lines on the décolletage.

If you start to notice aging or sagging skin and see more lines and wrinkles than you would like, you’re likely a candidate for Ultherapy if you’re in good health and your skin has not endured severe sun damage.

Getting Treatment from a Doctor You Trust

Dr. DeEtta Gray is a board-certified dermatologist who has been practicing for over twenty years, helping patients in the Bellevue area achieve their healthiest and most beautiful skin. She has advanced experience and training in both medical and cosmetic dermatology, including laser treatments and options like Ultherapy. At Pinnacle Dermatology, our team also includes experienced physician assistants and estheticians. During a consultation, Dr. Gray will carefully examine your skin and determine whether Ultherapy is the most effective treatment option for you.

Safely Restore Your Skin

Ultherapy uses effective and safe ultrasound technology to see beneath your skin’s service and into the soft tissue. Dr. Gray uses this tool to accurately direct the ultrasound waves to the proper area of your face. Ultrasound technology also stimulates the production of collagen in your face due to the way Ulthera provides selective heating as the ultrasound wand is positioned on your face and neck. The treatment typically takes between 1-3 hours to complete, there is no downtime after treatment, and you’ll start to see noticeable results in a few months.
