Ultherapy – Tightening the face with Ultrasound

Many non-invasive devices hitting the offices of plastic surgeons across the country utilize various forms of energy to provide results to patients who want to avoid surgery. Many of these patients are middle-aged, and often aren’t ready for a facelift procedure, but would benefit from tightening the face here and there. “The ultrasound energy used by the Ultherapy device penetrates the skin and creates new collagen by heating the dermis in specific areas to shrink, or tighten the skin,” says Dr. Broumand. “We can use Ultherapy to target the specific problem areas on a patient, and custom tailor a treatment plan to the individual. Have some wrinkles or sagging here and there? We send in ultrasound waves to tighten that skin right up without any downtime.” Dr. Broumand makes it clear how simple the procedure can be. “Come in at any time of the year, with a tan, no tan, all ages, whatever! Ultherapy can build new collagen in your face and have you right out the door the same day, and back to your life.”

Who benefits most from Ultherapy?

“Typically, women in their 40s and 50s experience a loss of volume in the face, and have some jowling around their jawline,” says Broumand. “While a facelift is the go-to procedure to correct this, we can now use Ultherapy to tighten up those regions. Younger patients can return youthfulness to their face without undergoing major surgery. Ultherapy can provide drastic results that push a facelift back 5, 10 maybe even 15 years.”

Not only have plastic surgeons found positive results with women in their middle years, but also younger patients, and men. “This treatment works on younger people who want to maintain their collagen and maintain youthfulness,” says Broumand. “Preventative maintenance goes a long way to aging gracefully. Ultherapy provides a great way to stay on top of the aging process.”

Facial Treatment Areas

  • Forehead: Lifting of the brow, tighten wrinkles
  • Around the Eyes: Tighten fine lines and wrinkles
  • Cheek and Jowls: Reduce jowling
  • Neck: Reshape the neck, tighten loose skin

“Virtually all areas of the face and neck can be treated and find positive results,” says Broumand. “Anyone who wants to look better, and isn’t ready for a surgical treatment, Ultherapy is the answer.”
