Ultherapy® in Beverly Hills

The signs of aging on the face can appear as early as our mid-20s and continue to progress over time. Many people consider a surgical facelift to restore their youthful appearance as fine lines, wrinkles, and lax skin on the face and neck become more noticeable. A facelift will correct all of these concerns. However, there may be a faster and easier way to get similar results without surgery or downtime: Ultherapy®.

What Is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy® is an ultrasound-based non-invasive therapy that stimulates collagen production in the treated areas. Collagen is a protein within the skin and tissues that provides flexibility and strength. This allows Ultherapy® treatments to tighten sagging skin.

At his Beverly Hills practice, Dr. Chiu is always introducing new cutting-edge treatments. He prides himself on ensuring that every patient has access to high-quality treatments to reach their aesthetic goals. Ultherapy® provides a youthful and natural-looking appearance.

What Can Ultherapy® Do?

 

By stimulating collagen production in the skin, Ultherapy® causes the treated tissues to tighten and become stronger. The effects of this treatment are dramatic. Unlike other treatments to address these concerns (such as a facelift), Ultherapy® is entirely non-invasive.

  • Improve Skin Elasticity

    As people age, their bodies produce fewer proteins that keep the skin tight, youthful, and able to bounce back. This causes skin laxity. By promoting collagen and elastin production, you can help increase your skin’s elasticity, allowing it to contract. Ultherapy® reduces laxity and helps ensure skin returns to its ideal state after being stretched out.

  • Tighten Sagging Skin

    Skin becomes thinner and looser over time. This causes the skin to sag, which is a significant sign of aging. Ultherapy® treatments can reduce the effects of sagging skin by stimulating collagen to thicken and strengthen the skin. This not only slows skin from sagging further but can reverse existing sagging as the skin regenerates.

  • Reduce Wrinkles

    Wrinkles form as skin ages and the tissue wears out. Fortunately, Ultherapy® can rejuvenate the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. If you are concerned with wrinkles on your face, neck, or upper chest, Ultherapy® can help. Because this technology uses ultrasound energy, there is no surgery, post-treatment scarring, or fillers needed.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ultherapy®

The cost of Ultherapy® can vary depending on the number of areas being treated and the size of the treatment area. In general, Ultherapy® treatments are very affordable and provide excellent results.

Ultherapy® is FDA approved for non-surgical skin tightening, and there are no known severe side effects caused by Ultherapy® treatments. Ultherapy® has been used for years with thousands of treatments performed. While no treatment is guaranteed to be one hundred percent safe, Ultherapy® is as close as cosmetic procedures get.

If you are interested in a non-invasive treatment to address sagging skin, excess skin laxity, or wrinkles, you are a potential candidate for Ultherapy® treatments. Ideal candidates should not have any open wounds or skin conditions in the treatment area.

The collagen produced by Ultherapy® is long lasting but will diminish with age, just like naturally occurring collagen. Repeated treatments can be performed to maintain optimal results. Most patients have reported results lasting between one and two years. Talk with Dr. Chiu about how often you should come in for follow-up treatments.
