Are you starting to notice sagging skin on your neck, chin, décolleté or brow? This lax skin may have you feeling like you must spend your money on expensive lotions or creams, or maybe you feel that the only answer is invasive surgery. Instead, you may be able to benefit from Ultherapy!

FDA-cleared Ultherapy is a nonsurgical treatment that harnesses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin from within for natural-looking results. Ultrasound has safely been used for more than 50 years to effectively perform many medical procedures, and with our skilled team at BOYD, you can be sure you are in good hands.

What is Treatment Like?

During treatment, your skin will be cleansed, and an ultrasound gel will be placed on the treatment areas. The special treatment applicator will be used to provide ultrasound imaging to deliver focused energy beneath the skin’s surface. During treatment, you may be able to feel a small amount of energy being delivered into the skin, but most patients tolerate this well. Following treatment, your skin may appear a bit flushed, but don’t worry- this is normal and will disappear within a couple of hours.

Benefits of Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a great alternative to surgical procedures for those with mild to moderate skin laxity. This cutting-edge procedure boasts many benefits, including:

No Needles: No needles, stitches, or incisions are used during treatment! Unlike other treatment such as lasers, radiofrequency, and surgery, Ultherapy passes through the surface of the skin to deliver controlled ultrasound energy deep within the skin. The energy stimulates collagen production in the skin, triggering cell regeneration.

No Downtime: Ultherapy does not require any physical downtime after treatment, so patients can feel free to resume their everyday activities right away. Some patients may notice some results right after treatment, but more dramatic results will appear over the course of 2-3 months.
