UltraSound Skin Tightening is a highly effective treatment for tightening, firming, toning and contouring the problem areas around the face, neck and décolleté. The treatment uses ultrasound energy which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by other types of laser technologies. The delivered energy is concentrated at a selected depth below the skin’s surface, creating controlled heating through cellular structure. This energy heats local tissue structures to coagulative temperatures, causing collagen denaturation and initiating aggressive collagen synthesis – without injuring the skin’s surface.

After your treatment you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. The visible results from the treatment can last from 1-2 years, depending on your body’s natural aging process. A good candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest.
RECOMMENDED NUMBER OF TREATMENTS:
Usually only 1—2 treatments are recommended. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.
PRIOR TO YOUR TREATMENT:
Avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks prior to your treatment.
DURING YOUR TREATMENT:
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered. The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. Small areas such as the brow region may take approximately 30 minutes, while the face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes.
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT:
You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
