As we age, the collagen in our skin weakens and elastin starts to break down, causing the skin to loosen. There is now a non-invasive procedure called Ultherapy which lifts the skin on the neck, chin and brow from the inside and produces amazing results. The team of highly trained Estheticians at Renu Medispa welcomes the chance to show you how this FDA approved ultrasound treatment lifts and tightens skin tissue to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and elastin.
Renu Medispa is among the first in Eagle to offer the Ultherapy procedure for lifting and tightening face and neck skin—without surgery! We use tried-and-true ultrasound to strengthen your skin from the inside out, in a completely non-invasive way.
After just one treatment, with no downtime, your skin will gradually reflect a more lifted and toned appearance.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures?
Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes only about an hour for most patients, and there is no downtime.
It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
Does it hurt?
A recent software upgrade called “Ultherapy Amplify” now affords a more comfortable procedure. While comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, most patients now report that the procedure is quite tolerable. If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This sensation is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
The Renu Medispa team takes carfeul measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible and patients tell us they leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.
How long does it last?
Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
How much does it cost?
Patients can expect to pay between $1000 and $5000, depending upon the areas being treated. Of course, the cost of Ultherapy can vary depending on geographic location and physician practice. Ultherapy meets the demand for something between skin creams and surgery.
