You may know Ultherapy as a popular non-surgical alternative to a face lift. In fact, it is considered the Gold Standard in skin-tightening and is one of Dr. Levine’s favorite facial treatments because it targets the same layers of tissue as a surgical face lift!
Originally used for lifting and tightening areas of the face, neck and decollete, it can also be effective in body sculpting! Specifically, Dr. Levine uses it to help patients address mild to moderate skin laxity above the knees and elbows.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical, FDA-cleared treatment that uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin. This helps to lift and tighten the skin, helping improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) is a layer of tissue that lies beneath the skin. The Platysma is a muscle that runs along the lower face and neck. Ultherapy targets both of these layers, which helps to achieve a more significant lift than other non-surgical treatments.
Unlike other non-surgical treatments, Ultherapy must be performed by a licensed medical professional, and typically takes about an hour. There is no downtime, and most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Dr. Jennifer Levine is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon on the Upper East Side of New York City and has offered the Ultherapy treatment since it became available over a decade ago. Dr. Levine has completed over 1,000 Ultherapy treatments and has trained colleagues on best techniques and synergistic treatments.
