Trinity Vista Dermatology in Fort Worth, Texas, offers Ultherapy®, the top-of-the-line skin tightening device used to treat aging and sagging skin. Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared device approved for non-invasive lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, chin, and brow. This device also treats wrinkling and texture changes on the chest. The best part about Ultherapy® is that the procedure has no downtime. Patients can expect subtle lifting and improvement of the treated area over a six month time period.
Ultherapy ® uses ultrasound energy to heat the skin below the surface at multiple controlled depths. The healing response from this heating is what creates the tightening or lifting effect. Since the heating of the skin can be uncomfortable at times, patients sometimes require an oral medication to help with the discomfort of the procedure.
Ultherapy® can be used on the face, neck, and décolletage. Many patients combine areas for a maximal result. Effects of Ultherapy® last approximately 2 years and repeat treatments may be necessary as the skin will continue to age over time.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a great treatment for patients in middle age who have noticed early signs of sagging. The procedure gives a subtle lifting and improvement over time. Ultherapy® can be combined with fillers for mid-face volume loss to optimize results. A consultation with a member of our team at Trinity Vista Dermatology can help you learn more about what Ultherapy® can achieve.
