At Silicon Valley Aesthetic Dermatology, we are offering an exciting new skin therapy that lifts and tightens loose skin naturally and without any surgery. It’s a face lift without the surgery. It helps to produce a more youthful looking face by lifting the skin under the chin, on the neck, the brow, and on the decolletage. An exciting new non-invasive skin treatment: ULTherapy in Foster City and San MateoIt is also the only non-invasive procedure that has been cleared by the FDA.

So how does it work? Ultherapy works by using ultrasound technology to allow our therapist to see the various layers of skin tissue and to isolate the deeper layers that need to be treated. Energy produced by ultrasound is then delivered to the precise areas that are needed to boost collagen production. The surface of the skin is not cut or harmed in any way whatsoever.

Depending upon where the treatment is aimed, the procedure can take anywhere between 30 minutes and two hours. Once treatment has been completed, there is no downtime at all and the patient can return to normal activities immediately. No post-treatment measures are required either.

Some Patients See Immediate Improvement

Some patients see an immediate improvement, but it is more common for results to appear over a period of two to three months, with some patients taking up to six months. It varies with the individual. You are left with a tighter more youthful-looking skin.

Ultherapy is typically suitable for younger patients in their 30’s and 40’s who are starting to witness the beginning of aging and sagging skin and want to do something about it before it gets any worse.

The benefits of Ultherapy are both physical and psychological and include tighter, firmer skin on the face, neck, brow, and if appropriate the decolletage, providing a fresher and younger facial appearance. It is quick, effective, and non-invasive, with no need for any downtime and no scarring. There is also no need for an anesthetic. You can see why we are so excited about it.
