An Uplift, Not a Facelift!
ULTHERAPY®: LIFT AND FIRM YOUR SKIN WITH POWERFUL ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGY
Gentle enough for use on highly sensitive areas on the face, neck, eyebrow area, and under the chin, Ultherapy® treatments channel the power of ultrasound energy to boost collagen production, a key protein necessary to retain the skin’s youthfully-firm, lifted appearance. Ultherapy® is the ONLY non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to lift the skin, thereby firming and tightening loose, sagging skin on the face/neck/décolletage. This advanced treatment modality allows the practitioner to precisely target and activate the structural support layers of the skin without damaging the epidermis (outermost skin layer), enabling you to achieve a firm, refreshed, and revitalized appearance from your eyes to your chest!
Benefits of Ultherapy
Many skin rejuvenation treatments require multiple sessions, which can become costly and inconvenient—with a single Ultherapy® treatment, patients are able to achieve remarkable skin-tightening benefits to turn back the hands of time and fight the harmful effects of sun-damage, gravity, and the natural aging process.
At Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody), with office locations in Richmond, VA and Vienna, VA, Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin work tirelessly to provide their patients with advanced next-generation anti-aging treatments, selecting only those treatments that are backed by solid scientific evidence and have a track record of producing successful treatment outcomes. After researching the remarkable benefits of the non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment known as Ultherapy®, the Doctors knew that this revolutionary treatment would be of great value to their MBody patients as an intensive, yet non-invasive countermeasure to skin laxity (sagging skin) and other visible signs of aging.
THE FIRMING, LIFTING, AND TIGHTENING BENEFITS OF COLLAGEN
You have probably heard the word ‘collagen’ vaguely mentioned a number of times, typically in the context of an advertisement for a new skincare product, and you may have some basic knowledge about this crucial biological substance. However, when choosing a skincare product or skin rejuvenation treatment, it is important to have a true understanding of exactly what collagen is, and how the depletion of collagen impacts the health and appearance of your skin.
- Collagen has powerful skin-healing properties and is responsible for strengthening blood vessels and giving our skin its elasticity and youthfully firm, lifted, supple appearance.
- Our collagen stores become depleted over time, as a result of the cumulative effects of the natural aging process, gravity, and environmental damage.
- Reduced collagen levels lead to undesirable aesthetic changes we collectively refer to as the “visible signs of aging,” which may include:
- Sagging, lax (loose) skin on the chest, face, neck, and chin
- Increasingly prominent fine lines and wrinkles around the neck, eyes, mouth, brows, and décolletage
By stimulating your body’s natural collagen production mechanism, Ultherapy® rejuvenates the skin from the inside out and creates a firmer, more lifted facial/neck/décolletage appearance.**
ULTHERAPY® FOR A NON-SURGICAL BUTT LIFT!
Although traditionally thought of as a facial rejuvenation treatment, Ultherapy® (Ulthera) has body contouring applications as well, and has shown to be a safe and effective non-invasive option for patients seeking to lift and tighten the skin around their buttocks. The ultrasound energy employed during your Ulthera® butt lift treatment stimulates collagen growth and targets the innermost layers of the skin (the same areas targeted during a surgical buttocks lift), causing the skin to contract and tighten while helping to minimize the appearance of cellulite. This FDA-cleared technology allows for the precise delivery of ultrasound energy where it will be most productive, resulting in a tighter, sexier, and more lifted posterior.**
Using Ultherapy®, patients can lift, tone and tighten the buttocks and upper thighs without anesthesia, incisions, scarring, pain, or post-treatment downtime! The results of your Ultherapy® buttocks lift will continue to improve over the next 2-3 months, as collagen stores are replenished and the newly strengthened skin shifts to a more youthfully lifted position.
YOUR ULTHERAPY® EXPERIENCE
Your Ultherapy® session will entail just one, simple, in-office procedure that can generally be completed 60-90 minutes. Your practitioner will utilize an ultrasound wand to deposit ultrasound energy into the deepest layers of the skin (dermis). As the ultrasound energy heats the tissue below the skin’s surface, the body’s natural collagen production mechanism is initiated and new healthy skin cells begin to form, but the surface of the skin remains unscathed.
Although some patients may experience mild, tingling and/or temporary discomfort as the focused ultrasound energy is applied, the MBody staff will take every measure to ensure your comfort throughout the entire procedure. At the conclusion of your Ultherapy® treatment, you may notice some slight redness around the treatment area—this will abate within a few hours, and you may return to your normal schedule as soon as your session is over.
You may observe some initial improvements in the appearance your skin immediately after your Ultherapy® session; however, the most dramatic revitalizing effects will become increasingly apparent over the next 2-3 months, as your collagen levels are replenished and your skin cells regenerate. Some of our patients have experienced continuous smoothing and firming benefits for nearly six months after their initial Ultherapy® treatment.**
