Ultherapy® Lifts & Tightens Skin Without Surgery
June 19th, 2022 | Categories: Skin Tightening
Tighten Face & Neck Skin With Non-Surgical Ultherapy® –
Unfortunately, aging, heredity, hormone decline, UV sun exposure, gravity, stress and more all lead to sagging, loose skin in the face and neck as one gets older. And, as collagen and elastin production decreases with age, skin simply does not “snap back” as it did when one was young.
But while men and women universally hate the resulting sagging, bagging, wrinkles and lines of age, few people want to undergo the pain, expense, and long recovery time of facelift surgery. Fortunately, Goldenberg Dermatology in New York, NY now offers a highly effective non-surgical procedure that lifts and tightens face and neck skin – affordably and without downtime.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment that lifts the neck, chin, and brow – in addition to improving lines and wrinkles on the upper chest (décolletage). In this article the skin tightening experts at Goldenberg Dermatology discuss this amazing new technology.
How Ultherapy Skin Tightening Works
Collagen is the natural protein in the body that provides the thick, firm, “plump,” smooth scaffolding of the skin. The collagen decline of age is what causes the skin on the face and neck to sag, bag, wrinkle and become lax.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound therapy to deeply penetrate the skin to stimulate renewed collagen production. Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound energy waves to generate a thermal effect under the skin that jump-starts the body’s own processes that produce fresh, new collagen. This renewed collagen production lifts and tightens loose skin over time, for a more youthful appearance.
Keep in mind that laser skin treatments rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers like sound waves can. So, typically, laser treatments can only treat superficial skin issues and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.
Is Ultherapy Skin Tightening Safe?
Ultrasound energy – a type of sound energy – has a proven track record, having been used in the medical field in a wide variety of applications for more than 50 years. Ultrasound energy is what is used to visual babies in the wombs of pregnant mothers.
Ultherapy’s safety record has been proven with over 1.5 million treatments performed worldwide to date, in more than 75 countries.
No Downtime with Ultherapy Skin Tightening!
Ultrasound waves have unique properties that allow them to bypass the surface of the skin, while penetrating depths that are not achieved by any other non-invasive cosmetic device.
This enables Ultherapy to heat the lower layers of skin (the dermis) – while leaving the top, outer layers of skin completely unharmed and intact. As a result, there is no downtime, and patients can resume their normal activities the same day.
Some patients may experience slight redness, but this typically resolves within a few hours following the procedure. Other patients may see some slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these effects are usually very mild and resolve quickly.
How Long do Ultherapy Skin Tightening Results Take?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that works by stimulating the body’s own formation of new collagen deep below the skin’s surface. The natural production of new collagen takes time, so results typically become visible over two to three months – with full results appearing around six months.
Because Ultherapy treatment produces new collagen on the inside, the results are long-lasting. Results of Ultherapy skin tightening the results can last up to two years or more – and future touch-up treatments can help extend the longevity of Ultherapy’s antiaging results.

Other Benefits of Ultherapy Skin Tightening
Many skin tightening procedures on the market treat loose, lax skin on the face alone. But Ultherapy goes much further.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck in addition to the face. This means that revolutionary Ultherapy can also treat the dreaded condition known as “turkey neck,” one of the most common and hardest-to-treat signs of aging.
Additionally, Ultherapy is the only treatment FDA-cleared to improve lines and wrinkles on a woman’s upper chest area, or “décolletage”. This is one part of the body that shows the signs of aging first – and is also a problem area that is one of the hardest to treat.
