We all love to let loose every once in a while, but loose skin is never what we mean by that. Weight loss, age, and other lifestyle choices can lead to sagging skin that ages us.
At Radiant Divine Medical Spa, we’re committed to helping our patients look as young as they feel. One of the ways we do that is through skin tightening with Ultherapy near Cleveland. It’s a completely customizable treatment to help lift and tighten skin on the face, neck, and chest.
Through the power of ultrasound energy and imaging, our experts can provide you with natural results to help you love the way you look. Many people are interested in skin tightening but are not interested in surgical procedures. The good news is that Ultherapy can provide results akin to a facelift, with just one treatment!
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a device that uses ultrasound waves to tighten and tone skin. Loose and sagging skin is one of the most common signs of aging. We can use Ultherapy to address skin laxity, wrinkles and fine lines, and crepey skin.
One of the best parts of Ultherapy is that it stimulates your body’s production of collagen so that your results continue to improve over time!
The Ulthera device is non-invasive but provides effective results that many people opt for instead of a surgical facelift. It’s FDA-cleared for use on these areas:
Is Ultherapy really an alternative to a facelift?
While there is no true replacement for cosmetic surgery, we can get pretty darn close. The ultrasound waves reach the deeper layers of your skin. Our specialists are able to target just the right amount of tissue at just the right depth so that your results look completely natural.
Surgery is a financial, emotional, and physical commitment that many people are just not ready for or interested in making. But that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have access to options that will provide clinically proven results that lift and tone in just 1 treatment!
How does Ultherapy lift my skin?
Ultrasound skin tightening works by stimulating “neocollagenesis”, which is a long word that just means creating new collagen.
Collagen is a protein and a key component of our skin’s anatomy. It provides our skin’s structure and volume. As we age, our body produces less collagen, which causes our skin to get loose and start to sag.
The Ulthera device gently heats your skin to the optimal temperature that spurs the creation of new collagen. By jumpstarting your body’s natural collagen production, Ultherapy actively encourages your body to produce younger skin, because the new collagen replaces the old.
What can I expect if I book Ultherapy near Cleveland?
Our team settles for nothing less than the best results for our patients. We make sure you know what’s up from the first phone call to the final follow-up so that you feel comfortable and cared for every step of the way.
It all starts with an in-depth consultation where we put you first. We’ll ask about your relevant medical history, your concerns, and your goals. At the same time, we’ll be assessing your skin and answering any questions you may have about the Ultherapy process.
At Radiant Divine we pride ourselves on creating a customized treatment plan for each of our patients. After we determine that Ultherapy is the best treatment option for your goals, we’ll get you scheduled and ready to experience those stunning results.
When you arrive for your appointment, you’ll be shown to one of our comfortable treatment rooms and invited to sit back and relax. We’ll cleanse and prep your skin with the ultrasound gel before using the smooth applicator to lift and tone your skin.
During your treatment, your provider will use ultrasonic imaging to see exactly how they’re manipulating the tissue. No Ultherapy session is truly alike, because it’s customized to your unique facial features.
Your treatment will last 60 to 90 minutes for full face and neck coverage. You might feel a slightly warm or tingly sensation, but overall most patients find Ultherapy a relaxing treatment and there’s no expected downtime!
You might be able to see results from your treatment almost immediately. Ultherapy also boosts your skin’s collagen production, which means your results will continue to get better even after you’ve left our office!
Results from Ultherapy will last 12 months or more, especially if you are taking care of your skin at home and wearing your daily sunscreen!
Our customized approach to Ultherapy in Cleveland
Part of tailoring your treatment plan to your unique facial anatomy is recognizing when there are complementary treatments that would further enhance your Ultherapy results.
These are some of our favorites:
What It Does
Sculptra is an injectable treatment that can help enhance your natural facial contours by replacing lost volume. It’s not quite a filler but works in a similar way. After it’s injected, Sculptra temporarily fills the space with its solution made from poly-L-lactic acid and as it dissolves encourages collagen production. So your body ends up filling the space again naturally!
Why It Works With Ulthera
While Ultherapy lifts and tightens your skin, Sculptra replaces lost volume. Both treatments stimulate collagen production, so you get double the benefit! With strategic Sculptra injection from our master injectors and the hyper-personalized nature of Ulthera, you’ll still look like you, but the best version of you!
What It Does
RF Microneedling is a gold standard for skin tightening at the dermis level. Through controlled injury to the skin, the microneedles and radiofrequency energy work to smooth and tighten skin, by, you might have guessed, producing new collagen!
Why It Works With Ulthera
Ultherapy targets the deeper layers of the skin, while microneedling targets the higher level and surface issues. Working together they’re basically a dream team.
CO2 Laser Resurfacing
What It Does
CO2 laser resurfacing is a go-to method for skin rejuvenation. We use the Cool Peel CO2 laser to pinpoint troublesome areas on your skin, targeting them without affecting the surrounding tissue.
Why It Works With Ulthera
CO2 laser resurfacing is a great way to clear away fine lines and wrinkles on the surface of your skin at the same time that Ulthera is treating them from below by boosting collagen production.
With this combo, it’s important to note that CO2 resurfacing does come with a few days of downtime.
Any of these combos sounding perfect for you? Request an appointment with us to get started.
Frequently asked questions about Ultherapy near Cleveland:
Does Ultherapy help with skin texture or tone?
Ulthera is designed primarily for skin tightening. Patients who are interested in treatments for skin texture and tone, like acne scars, rosacea, or rough skin will find skin resurfacing treatments like microneedling or laser resurfacing the most useful.
It is possible that you could benefit from a treatment plan that combines multiple techniques! Take the opportunity to discuss all your concerns with your provider during your consultation.
How many treatments will I need?
Most people see benefits after just one session with Ulthera. When discussing your desired results with your provider, a secondary treatment might be required depending on your unique anatomy. Annual maintenance treatments can help sustain your Ultherapy results.
Does Ultherapy hurt?
Ultera is not considered a painful procedure. Some patients report mild discomfort and warmth from the ultrasound waves. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensations only last while the ultrasound is being delivered.
How does Ultherapy differ from laser skin treatments?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy instead of light energy. Light cannot reach the deeper layers of the skin in the same way. Further, lasers are typically not FDA-cleared for skin lifting and Ulthera is!
