Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the eyebrows. It can also be used on the décolletage to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to treat the same foundational layers Dr. Chow addresses when performing facelift surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. This energy then stimulates a natural response from the body to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and strengthen weakened collagen tendrils. In one study, collagen production increased 42% after Ultherapy.
The procedure is non-invasive and requires no downtime, providing natural results after just a single treatment. At the Chow Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, patients have been happy to have an additional option to surgery for facial rejuvenation. Patients can see effects right after treatment, but true results generally appear 2-3 months later. This gives new collagen a chance to build, gradually lifting and tightening skin on the face and neck over time.
Dr. Jen Chow personally performs the procedure on his patients to ensure the best results. He will tailor the treatment to your individual needs and cosmetic concerns. Most practices do not, having techs or nurses perform Ultherapy. Dr. Chow never has techs or nurses to perform “cookie-cutter” Ultherapy, where a specific diagram is followed for every patient. This would disregard the differences between each unique face and neck.
Ultherapy of the full face and neck generally takes between 60-90 minutes. You can resume your normal activities afterwards. Other than the time needed for the procedure itself, no patients at the Chow Center for Facial Plastic Surgery have had to miss any work time. Our patients see years of improvement after the treatment!
