What Is Ulthera?

As we age the collagen that our body has developed and stored starts to disappear. This results in sagging skin, wrinkles, and volume loss. Ulthera is a non-surgical procedure that re-stimulates collagen at a very deep level under the skin using ultrasound waves. The ultrasound waves bypass the top layers of skin and targets the deep tissue, working to stimulate natural collagen growth and therefore tighten the loose skin. Ultherapy does not require any surgery and there is no downtime after the procedure is completed! Ulthera offers fantastic results which makes it the non-surgical skin tightening treatment of choice for Dr. Azizzadeh and at The CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in the heart of Beverly Hills.

Am I a Good Ulthera Candidate?

If you are looking for a non-invasive treatment to tighten and tone your loose, sagging skin without undergoing surgery, Ulthera could be the right treatment for you. It’s important to consider that Ulthera isn’t an overnight fix. Once the collagen has been re-stimulated during the treatment, it takes time for it to begin to grow and build. You should notice the optimal results of your Ulthera treatment anywhere from 3-6 months after the procedure. To be sure that you are a candidate for Ulthera, you would need to consult with a board certified physician who can talk to you about your options and goals. Dr. Azizzadeh often recommends Ulthera for patients in their late twenties and early thirties to be used as a preventative before collagen loss begins. Ulthera can be performed on all skin tones, and has virtually no down-time, making it a very easy treatment to fit into your everyday life.

What’s the Difference Between Ulthera and Thermage?

The difference between Thermage and Ulthera has to do with the technology used to administer the treatment. Thermage uses radiofrequency (RF) that heats the skin and induces a tightening effect. Ulthera uses micro-focused ultrasound that heats the deeper tissue layers and provides a more natural tightness leaving top of the skin alone. Dr. Azizzadeh prefers Ulthera, and patients are always extremely excited about their results.
