Ultherapy® Skin Treatment in Fort Myers
Dr. Stevens was looking for a way to help those who wish to have some tightening and lifting of lax skin of the face and neck without surgery. Ulthera fills the need for lifting in the lower face, neck and brows using safe, sophisticated application of ultrasound energy. Recently, the FDA approved Ulthera for use in the chest (decollate) region to tighten and improve the skin in that troublesome area.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ulthera is focused ultrasound energy that is applied at various controlled depths under the skin. This stimulates the formation of collagen and its cohort – elastin – which tightens and lifts the skin. Treatments take about one to two hours depending upon the amount of area treated. The effects become apparent within three to six months. Treatments are performed in the office without anesthesia and there is no recovery time required. The effects achieved with one treatment typically last for 2 years.
Ultrasound is an extremely safe modality which has been used in medicine for decades. The unique way that Ulthera applies the ultrasound energy is what makes it the most recognized, non invasive way to lift loose skin. It has been featured throughout the country in various publications including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Shape and more.
