Do the loose skin around your jawline and neck bother you? Do you look much older than you are because of your chest? If you said yes to any of these questions, you might want to try Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a way to tighten skin without surgery, anesthesia, or downtime. It is safe for both men and women and has been approved by the FDA. Allen Medical Aesthetics offers Ultherapy to help you work on your aesthetic goals. 

Continue reading to find out what this new technology can do for you and how it can help you tighten your skin.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy gives proven results in a single treatment for most people who are not ready for a surgical facelift. It is the only non-invasive procedure that the FDA has approved to lift the neck, chin, and brow and reduce lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. 

Ultherapy uses ultrasound imaging to send energy to the spot where it will help you the most. This gives you results that look natural and get better over time. 

The results of Ultherapy are precise, and they happen over two to three months as new collagen works to lift skin on the neck, chin, and brow and smooth skin on the upper chest. 

Results may improve in three to six months and can last for a year or longer. Ultherapy is a clinically proven, non-invasive alternative to surgery for people who don’t want or aren’t ready for a facelift.

Ultherapy at Allen Medical Aesthetics

Ultherapy uses ultrasound therapy to stimulate collagen deeper than other non-invasive treatments. And it uses traditional ultrasound imaging so that your aesthetician can see the layers of tissue they are treating. 

This ensures that the treatment energy goes where it will help you the most. Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery, and other methods, Ultherapy doesn’t cut the skin. 

Instead, it uses ultrasound energy and focused imaging on going below the skin’s surface to target the right amount of power at the correct depth and temperature. This gets your body’s collagen production going faster.

Once more, only Ultherapy has been approved by the FDA to lift skin without surgery on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow, as well as to reduce lines and wrinkles on the chest.

Ultherapy For Skin Tightening

Even though many skin-tightening treatments promise almost the same skin-rejuvenating effects, they are very different. They have this in common because they use other technologies to create appealing visual effects.

Since these technologies don’t require surgery, there are no cuts, no stitches, and little to no downtime. These treatments are also simple procedures in an office and take about an hour to finish. 

Depending on the size and severity of the treatment area and whether you are also getting other cosmetic improvements simultaneously, it may take a little longer in some cases.

Ultherapy is the first non-invasive way to lift and tighten the skin without FDA-approved surgery. It uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to create heat under the skin, stimulating the body’s collagen. Because of this, the skin gets firmer and brighter.

More Benefits of Ultherapy For Skin Tightening

Here are those if you’re thinking about other helpful benefits of Ultherapy. 

Offers Gradual Yet Impressive Improvement

Many people are worried about mild to moderate skin laxity. They fear surgery will make them look fake or done, even more so when it comes to eyelids that hang down.

Since Ultherapy causes the body to heal wounds and make new collagen, the firming effects are seen gradually. Most of the time results in a peak of around six months.

Friends and family will likely tell you that you look rested and happy, but they won’t know that you had a treatment to tighten your skin.

Natural Results 

Ultherapy fixes what natural aging or other things have taken away from your skin by strengthening its base. 

So, it doesn’t move the skin in a way that isn’t natural, and it doesn’t add anything from the outside. Patients can be sure they will look like a younger version of themselves after the procedure.

Quick, Easy, and Zero Downtime

As we always mention, Ultherapy is a procedure done in a doctor’s office. Usually, it takes between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on the treated area.

Since it works below the skin, there is no redness or other obvious side effects after the treatment. The person can go about their day as usual. 

Best of all, with Ultherapy, you only need one treatment to see a big difference in how tight your skin is. This is in contrast to other non-invasive procedures that require many sessions.

Boost Your Self-Esteem 

After getting Ultherapy, patients are happy to see that their jowls have gone away and that their skin no longer sags. Also, they often feel like the treatment has given them a new lease on life and a massive boost to their sense of self-worth.

Not Invasive

Ultherapy is an excellent alternative to a facelift that doesn’t involve surgery and doesn’t hurt at all. It uses focused ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the skin on the neck, jawline, brow, and décolletage. 

This gives the skin a more youthful look. So, the skin is changed from the inside out, with no cuts, scars, or other marks.

Risk and Side Effects

Most of the time, heat and tingling feelings go away quickly after the procedure. In the hours after the procedure, the treated areas of the skin may become flushed or red, and they may feel tingly, swollen, or tender for a short time. On rare occasions, there may be some bruising or numbness, but these side effects usually go away after a few days.


Your doctor may recommend getting treatments once a year as a preventive anti-aging treatment. Ultherapy might not work well for overweight people with a lot of sagging or tight skin.
