What are Ultherapy treatments?
When your skin is not as tight as you want it to be, Lincoln Park Aesthetics in Chicago, IL may have a solution that does not require a surgical "lift." If you have mild skin laxity, you may be a candidate for our Ultherapy treatments for nonsurgical skin tightening. Many men and women have tried our nonsurgical skin tightening treatments on the loose facial, neck, and décolletage (chest area) skin with fantastic results. Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), our Ultherapy device emits ultrasonic frequencies to decrease the laxity of your skin by stimulating your collagen. After your treatment and as your skin begins to heal itself, your body produces more collagen to repair the skin.
"Can’t say enough positive things about LPA ! Not a regular visitor to "Med-Spa’s" - so obviously a little apprehensive about booking... But after Micro-Needling and Ultherapy from Jenna and Dysport from Maggie could not be happier. Amazing staff and facility -"- R.M. / Yelp / Jul 10, 2016
Am I a Candidate for Nonsurgical Skin TIghtening?
Both men and women can get results from Ultherapy treatments. Have you noticed that your facial skin:
- Is not feeling as tight as it did a few years ago?
- Has light to moderate lines and wrinkles (in the areas around the mouth, eyes, and brow)?
- Is presenting a slight jowl droop?
You might not be an ideal patient for Ultherapy treatments if you have severe sagging or deeper wrinkles and lines. We provide consultations for patients who would like to reduce their signs of aging or prevent the early development of lines and wrinkles.
Our skin tightening Technique with Ultherapy
When you arrive for your appointment, you will be invited to get comfortable in one of our relaxing treatment rooms. Then, we will prepare your treatment area, which can include the application of a numbing agent. For the procedure, a handheld device that uses ultrasound energy will be passed over your skin. Based on how many areas you're having treated, your sessions may last an average of 1 – 2 hours. It is normal for your skin to look somewhat pink and red after treatment. You may apply a few cold packs and take a nonprescription pain reliever in the hours that follow to reduce any inflammation and pain.
What to Expect
The treatment with our Ultherapy device will not give you visible results immediately. It will take a while for the treated skin to adjust and heal after each treatment session. With the increase of collagen, the treated skin will be more toned in around six or more months. The number of sessions needed depends on your skin condition and aesthetic goals. Generally, most patients who still have a good skin tone can have significant results with a single treatment. For those who show more symptoms of aging, several treatments may be needed to produce the desired result.
