Lift and Tighten Your Skin with Ultherapy

At Esthetics by Halima in Coral Gables, FL, we offer Ultherapy, an innovative treatment that utilizes ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin on the face and neck. This non-invasive procedure targets the deep layers of tissue typically addressed in a facelift or neck lift, stimulating collagen production and resulting in younger-looking skin. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive FDA-cleared procedure designed to lift skin on the neck, chin, and brow.

The Ultherapy Procedure

During your Ultherapy treatment, our experienced professionals will cleanse your skin and apply ultrasound gel to the target area. The Ultherapy handpiece is then placed on the skin, delivering low-level focused heat to the deep layers. You may experience mild discomfort as the heat stimulates collagen production. The duration of the treatment depends on the area being treated, with a full face and neck treatment typically taking 60 to 90 minutes, while a partial face or brow treatment can be completed in 30 minutes.

Transformative Results

Ultherapy is ideal for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity on the face and neck. Results may vary depending on individual factors and skin conditions. The treatment can lift the brow, reducing excess skin on the eyelids and creating a more open-eyed appearance. It can also lift and tighten sagging skin on the neck and under the chin, reducing the appearance of a double chin or “turkey-gobbler.” While some patients may see immediate improvement, the full results of Ultherapy usually become apparent within 2 to 3 months as new, more elastic collagen replaces the old collagen. The optimal benefits are typically achieved at around 6 months. Most patients require only one treatment, although those with significant concerns may need additional sessions. Results can last up to a year.

Minimal and Temporary Side Effects

Side effects associated with Ultherapy are generally mild and temporary, primarily limited to the treatment area. These may include slight redness, swelling, tingling, and tenderness. It’s important to note that while Ultherapy provides remarkable results, it is not a substitute for a surgical facelift. However, it offers a non-surgical alternative for individuals not ready for or interested in undergoing surgery.
