Ultherapy skin tightening represents an innovative, FDA-approved non-invasive treatment targeting lax, mature skin using ultrasound technology. The ultrasound energy penetrates deep within the skin, inducing the body’s innate healing mechanism, leading to the production of collagen.
How Does Ultherapy Skin Tightening Work?
The ultrasound energy heats tissue deep in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response, which causes collagen to form. In two to three months, this new collagen will have tightened and firmed your skin, giving it a fresh, youthful look.
Ultherapy is perfect for many areas of the body, such as the eyebrows, jaw line, chest, and jowls. The treatment is available at Malik Medical Aesthetics in Mullica Hill, NJ, and also in Vineland, NJ and Springfield, PA.
The procedure only lasts an hour and a half. Your Malik Medical Aesthetics skin care expert will first clean the treatment site and apply ultrasound gel to your skin. They will then use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to determine the appropriate depth to apply the therapeutic sound energy before using the ultrasound skin therapy applicator to deliver focused sound pulses into your skin. You will likely be able to feel the sound energy entering your skin, and this may be painful, so if you have a low tolerance for pain, you may be able to use a sedative for the Ultherapy treatment.
