How does Ultherapy work?

To understand how Ultherapy treatments work, we must first understand the function of collagen. The body generates collagen to repair and keep tissue firm and elastic, allowing young people to maintain smooth, supple, and beautiful skin. Unfortunately, collagen production slows down as we age, leading to skin wrinkling and sagging. The Ultherapy procedure delivers focused sound waves, or ultrasound energy, to the areas requiring rejuvenation.

This heat energy reaches multiple tissue layers far below the skin, where it reinvigorates collagen production. This way, Ultherapy skin tightening promotes the creation of new tissue necessary to give you younger, fresher skin. Thanks to ultrasound energy’s penetrative ability, the Ultherapy treatment accomplishes the rejuvenating effect without surgery or the use of toxins, chemicals, fillers, or creams.

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?

For those in their 30’s or older who are looking to reduce sagging skin on the eyelids, brows, neck, and chin, Ultherapy is an ideal solution. However, it's essential that patients still have some elasticity left in their skin for optimal outcomes with these treatments. If your skin tissue has become excessively lax due to aging, then unfortunately, Ultherapy may not be able to deliver satisfactory results.

Ultherapy cost

Depending on the number of areas treated, the number of sessions completed, and the patient’s geographical location, the best Ultherapy in Chicago can cost between $750 and $5,000.
