Ultherapy Lower Face and Jowls Before and After
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical treatment option that lifts skin and muscle, in addition to tightening and toning skin. Ultherapy uses micro-focused, ultrasound energy that goes deep into the SMAS skin tissue (the foundational layer cut by plastic surgeons). It is has no downtime, is noninvasive, works naturally and usually requires only a single one-hour treatment — all while yielding natural looking, long lasting results.
Collagen makes up about 35% of our body. A major reason our skin starts to sag as we age is because of the natural slowing down of the collagen production process in our bodies. One of the first signs of aging is sagging of the lower face and jawline, due to decreasing levels of collagen in the latticework of collagen and elastin that supports our skin. Gravity and general weakening on the supportive musculature add to the problem.
Gravity pulls down the skin on the underside of the jaw line, as the collagen network and muscles weaken with age. Ultherapy uses ultrasound waves at precise depths and targeted areas on the cheeks chin and jaw line to trigger the skin to produce collagen. This process reinforces the networks of collagen to tone, smooth, and lift the skin naturally from within. The hand piece will be used to lift the jowls and jawline into the desired position, which retrains the superficial musculature and lifts the skin for long-lasting results.
Ultherapy triggers your natural healing process to produce new collagen and elastin, making it one of the best nonsurgical procedures for skin tightening. It effectively lifts sagging skin on areas including the jowls, neck, eyes, chest and more.
Ultherapy has the unique ability to micro target ultrasound into areas such as the jowls and lower face, which require deeper wavelengths than other areas of the face. During treatment of the jowls, chin and jawline, ultrasound waves are delivered at three different depths, targeting the deepest areas first, the SMAS, then the dermis. Using proprietary DeepSee technology to see and treat deep inside the tissue of the jowls, chin and jawline, Ultherapy provides accuracy and customized treatment to achieve natural looking skin tightening.
Ultherapy uses precise amounts of ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin. Micro-targeted ultrasound waves, customizable to different depths, are able to reach the muscle, deep dermis, and the epidermis. This stimulates fibroblasts, pro-collagen, collagen and elastin, resulting in increased skin elasticity and smoothing of wrinkles.
DeepSee ultrasound technology allows for see and treat, real-time, on-screen visualization, precision, and customization of the depth of the tissue being treated. Adjustments can be made based on:
- The area being treated,
- How much skin tightening and lifting is needed in the treatment area, and/or
- Whether skin tightening and lifting is needed or a skin smoothing is needed.
In one study, the average amount of lift was 45.2 mm with significant skin lifting for 71.8% of patients. These results prove that Ultherapy can effectively lift skin non-surgically and have significant advantages over skin-tightening surgery, such as a facelift.
Only one Ultherapy treatment is usually needed to achieve desired results, and a treatment generally takes about an hour. Although some skin tightening is noticeable immediately, the real results happen over the next 3-6 months and last for years, as new collagen forms and firms and rejuvenates the skin by increasing its elasticity. Results are natural looking because they are gradual.
Ultherapy results can last up to five years. However, how long Ultherapy lasts depends on the genetic predisposition to aging and lifestyle factors of the patient. In a nutshell, Ultherapy lasts until you age more. Additional Ultherapy treatments can be performed if a patient desires additional skin tightening benefits after six months.
Ultherapy treatment produces natural looking results that can last up to five years by using your skin’s healing process to stimulate collagen. And treatments can be repeated after six months for even more skin tightening and lifting. However, no anti-aging treatment has the ability to combat the natural aging process, which means that Ultherapy is not permanent.
Ultherapy’s collagen boosting benefit makes it a very versatile treatment at any age. Not only will Ultherapy work to reverse skin laxity in the 40’s and 50’s, it can also be used earlier to stimulate collagen production and slow or prevent aging. To optimize Ultherapy’s preventative capabilities, we usually recommend combining it with other treatments such as Botox or Cosmetic Fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, for people in their 30’s.
Ultherapy risks, bad results and problems are less common than a cosmetic facelift. After a single, 60 – 90 minute treatment, patients are free to return to normal activity. Immediately following treatment, patients typically only experience minor redness which lasts an hour or two. Because it bypasses the surface of the skin, there’s usually no downtime and no scarring associated with treatment.
Pain is not generally reported during Ulthera skin tightening; however, each individual has a personal and individual tolerance to treatment. Generally, any discomfort dissipates quickly. Our experienced and licensed technicians know how to make the procedure as pain-free and comfortable as possible. Most patients report that any mild discomfort experienced due to the heat of the Ultrasound energy is worth the benefit that Ultherapy treatment provides for the lower face and jowl area.
Any minor side effects from Ulthera ultrasound treatment generally subside, as a part of the normal healing process. These may be alleviated with simple measures, such as Ibuprofen. Patients typically only experience minor redness which lasts an hour or two. Additionally, it is normal to experience mild tenderness, bruising and swelling for up to a week. The jowls, in particular, are susceptible to further, tingling, soreness, numbness and tenderness for up to two to three weeks.
Ultherapy stimulates your skin from the inside out to smooth and tighten skin on the face, including the jowls, eyes, and brow. Ultherapy is also effective for lifting skin on the body including the neck, chest, knees and stomach. We offer complimentary consultations to see if Ultherapy is best for you, or if any of our other cosmedical non-surgical beauty treatments are better options for you.
Ultherapy is almost like a face lift without surgery, downtime, or scars. Skin tightening surgery generally involves removing skin tissue with a scalpel to pull and reattach skin and muscle to achieve tighter skin. However, it cannot create elasticity from within the skin like Ultherapy does. At Smooth Synergy, we believe that maintenance is the key to avoiding surgery, and we offer proven, effective non-surgical skin treatments.
How much Ultherapy costs in NYC depends on your desired treatment outcome, as well as how lax your skin is before treatment. Because it’s the only FDA cleared treatment for skin tightening, we, generally say that Ultherapy is worth the price!
Ultherapy works best on jowls, chin and lower face that show the signs of mild to moderate laxity. In fact, maintaining your skin with Ultherapy while it has slight to moderate laxity can delay or eliminate the need for cosmetic surgery later.
