Ultherapy, the only procedure to receive FDA approval for a non-invasive neck, brow and under-chin lift effect, is available at Horvath Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, serving Philadelphia and the surrounding locations. The procedure has earned a national following, thanks to exposure on television programs such as the “Rachael Ray Show,” “The View” and “The Doctors.” Editors at Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire and Shape have also written about the innovative Ultherapy treatment.
Ultherapy uses ultrasonic energy to lift and tighten loose skin on the browline, the neck and underneath the chin. It effectively treats mild to moderate skin laxity in patients who aren’t ready for the time or financial commitment required of surgical intervention. Ultherapy is also useful for individuals who want to “stay ahead of the game” or prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How Does It Work?
During an Ultherapy session, Dr. Horvath will place the handpiece on the treatment area. The device delivers sound waves to the subcutaneous tissue to heat it. This jumpstarts the body’s natural repair process and stimulates the creation of collagen and elastin. These proteins cause an actual lift in the skin over two to three months, as the body’s old collagen is replaced with new, stronger collagen.
As the collagen-building process continues, results will continue to improve for up to six months following treatment. The skin will look tighter and firmer, and you will look healthier and more youthful!
One of the advantages of Ultherapy technology is that it uses ultrasound imaging, which allows Dr. Horvath to visualize the layers of tissue targeted during treatment. This ensures that the ultrasonic energy is delivered precisely where it needs to go, for optimal results.
Another advantage to Ultherapy treatment is that it targets the foundation beneath the skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Because of the treatment’s non-invasive nature, it allows you to return to your regular routine almost immediately, without interruptions. Post-operative bruising or scarring are unlikely.
