Ultherapy in Columbus, OH
What is Ultherapy?
In Columbus, Ohio, patients are flocking to Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Dorner’s clinic asking for new and practical ways to cope with skin aging. Fortunately for them, Ultherapy is now available and is a great, noninvasive option for tightening, toning, and making skin firmer. Ultherapy is now being used to treat areas of the body such as the chest, the neck, and the face. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the patient’s natural healing processes within the lower layers of the skin. This method is able to trigger the active production of collagen, replenishing the skin’s supporting structure to produce a noticeable yet natural-looking improvement on the condition of the skin.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy makes use of safe and effective ultrasound technology to promote skin renewal from deep within the skin layers. During the procedure, a handpiece that is very similar to those used in conventional imaging procedures is used to project an image of the underlying skin tissues onto a screen to allow the doctor to see where treatment is needed most. Ultrasound energy will then be focused and delivered to these target areas, bypassing the surface of the skin to avoid damage. The energy directed into the tissues will stimulate the production of collagen to recondition the skin and promote tightening that gradually lifts and restores the skin for a more youthful look.
What happens during an Ultherapy procedure?
You as the patient will have the option beforehand of receiving medication to lessen discomfort during the procedure. It is important to make sure that the skin is thoroughly cleansed before the procedure as well. To begin the treatment, ultrasound gel will be applied to the indicated areas to help transmit the ultrasound waves from the handpiece, onto the skin, and directed towards the layers underneath. During the process, patients will experience a tingling sensation as waves of energy begin to be deposited below the skin surface. This feeling is temporary and should be relieved as soon as the procedure is done, typically taking between 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Because this procedure is noninvasive, it requires no downtime and the patient can resume normal activity right after the treatment.
The initial effects of Ultherapy will be somewhat noticeable, but complete toning and lifting will be more evident within 2 to 3 months as the collagen in the treatment areas begins to be replenished. In fact, six months after the initial treatment, patients still report progressive improvement in the treated areas.
Is Ultherapy safe?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved procedure that has demonstrated an impressive safety rating throughout the years. The use of ultrasound energy has been used in the medical field extensively and this new innovation to use it for cosmetic purposes is consistent with its track record for safety.
