Touted as the world’s first surgery free, toxin free, FDA approved face lifting treatment, Ultherapy has been on the market since its first approval for nonsurgical brow lifts in 2009 and face and neck lifts in 2011. Drs. Ken and Marnie Collins offer Ultherapy as one of many aesthetic services available and Collins Dental & Aesthetic.
Ultherapy stimulates the production of collagen and other skin firming and tightening agents the body naturally produces in locations where production has slowed with age. An ultrasonic pulse is applied multiple layers under the skin’s surface directly to the level of cells that produce collagen and elastin creating a benign injury that stimulate the natural production of these chemicals as the wound heals.
The result of increased production of collagen and elastin is tighter, firmer skin with fewer apparent wrinkles, and a healthier, more youthful appearance. While Ultherapy may not resolve all wrinkles and imperfections, it has been successfully combined with Botox and/or Juvaderm to provide a nonsurgical, fully lifted appearance to the face. The finished look is less permanent than a surgical facelift, but more natural in appearance.
