Most of us are well aware of the factors that contribute to damaged and aging skin. The sun, genetics, and each year that passes contribute to skin irregularities that many people are looking to correct. At JTAV Clinical Skincare, one of our favorite and most effective solutions to improving your skin’s tone, texture and firmness is Ultherapy.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tighten, and improve lines and wrinkles on the face and chest.

The procedure uses micro-focused ultrasound waves to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin and generate new collagen growth, naturally.

Unlike other skin-tightening devices, Ultherapy has the ability to produce a precise image of the skin and underlying connective tissue on a screen before the procedure begins. This allows JTAV to create a personalized treatment plan that targets areas in need of improvement and collagen production, and the device determines the correct depth and temperature needed to produce optimal results.

Who are the best candidates for Ultherapy?

Everyone can benefit from Ultherapy. Why? Because Ultherapy has the ability to be customized to your unique needs.

Generally speaking, the best candidates are those who are experiencing a noticeable degree of laxity in the skin around their chin and neck.

Typically, those in their 30s and above are candidates who can benefit the most from this kind of treatment, and is an excellent alternative to an invasive surgical procedure.

Ultherapy has also become popular among younger patients who are looking to stay ahead of the aging process and implement an aesthetic maintenance regimen; we like to say that it adds to your “collagen savings bank!”

Treatments are most effective when used to target the brow area, cheeks, jowl line, nasolabial folds, upper and lower neck, and décolleté.

What to expect from an Ultherapy treatment

Before the procedure begins, your skilled JTAV Ultherapy Expert will start by marking the exact areas that will be treated.

Once the treatment starts, micro-focused ultrasound energy is delivered to the exact targeted areas, where usually there is a slight sensation that occurs as the tiny amounts of energy begin to stimulate the collagen-building process.

Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. We take the utmost care in ensuring your comfort levels during the treatment and guide you through the entire process.

Treatment time varies by area and the discomfort is manageable.

Following the treatment, clients are able to return to normal activities right away, without any immediate downtime.

There may be slight redness that typically resolves within a few hours following the treatment. Some patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

Is the Procedure Safe?

Yes! Ultherapy treatments are currently preformed worldwide in more than 60 countries, and over 1 million treatments have been performed globally. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.

How long does it last? Are multiple treatments required to achieve optimal results?

With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, and full results build gradually over the course of two to six months, as new, stronger collagen and elastin are created.

Most of our clients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment, depending on the current condition of their skin and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process.

We suggest yearly maintenance appointments to continue building new collagen to combat the skin’s natural aging process.

Ultherapy offers an effective solution and provides natural results to patients who are looking to rejuvenate their skin without using invasive procedures.
