With Ultherapy, you can lift, tone and tighten the skin on your brow, neck and under your chin without facial surgery. This innovative technology uses ultrasound energy to trigger your skin's healing response. As the skin begins to repair itself, it will become smoother, plumper and more youthful. Our experienced plastic surgeon Adam Basner has nearly 20 years of cosmetic surgical experience, and he has seen first-hand the results Ultherapy can provide without any incisions or sutures. To schedule your cosmetic consultation at our greater Baltimore plastic surgery office, please call us at (410) 616-3000.
Why Choose Ultherapy?
Ultherapy provides rejuvenation results without surgery. You won't have to prepare for the appointment and there is no downtime. You can return to normal activities immediately after. Dr. Basner offers this treatment because he has seen the results it can achieve and he knows some patients are not good candidates for plastic surgery or prefer not to undergo surgery at this time.
You may have heard of similar treatments like Thermage, which uses radiofrequency, or Fraxel. While these treatments have their own benefits, Ultherapy is currently the only FDA-approved treatment for lifting skin on the neck, chin and forehead.
How Ultherapy Works
The Ultherapy treatment takes about 60 to 90 minutes. You won't need any anesthesia and will remain awake and alert throughout the appointment. Ultherapy emits ultrasound energy, which causes a certain response in your body. The ultrasound energy stimulates a healing response in your skin, so new collagen is produced. The collagen and the skin's healing response will cause the skin to tighten and lift to a more youthful, smooth appearance.
You may notice some effect right away, but most lift will develop over the course of 2 to 3 months. You may continue to see improvement over the 6 months after your procedure. Although Ultherapy cannot provide the same results as plastic surgery, it has proven to be an effective alternative that provides great results, albeit not permanently.
