Ultherapy from Adam and Eve Med Spa in Scottsdale Arizona is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, around the eyes, neck, under the chin, and decolletage (chest).
The only FDA-approved procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas, Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin.
Regency and Adam & Eve Medical Aesthetics in Scottsdale Arizona were both named a 2014 Ultra Ultherapy Provider AND 2015 Ultra Premiere Provider for being one of the leading providers in Phoenix & Scottsdale! Patients have had great success at both locations due to their highly trained medical staff of physicians, nurses, and certified technicians and establishing trustworthy relationships with their beautiful patients and helping them achieve wonderful results! Both clinics
Now there’s a way to stand firm in the face of gravity—on your terms. With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.With Ultherapy, you can go about your day after a single, 60-90 minute in-office procedure. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time—much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).
Results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months, including lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.
Ultherapy Now FDA Approved To Treat Lines & Wrinkles Of Décolletage On June 20, 2014, the Ultherapy System received FDA-clearance to non-invasively treat the chest to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolleté. This is great news for us as we have long believed in the effectiveness of Ultherapy as a treatment for chest wrinkles. We can use the Ultherapy Décolleté treatment as a stand-alone Ultherapy treatment or as an add-on to the Ultherapy lifting treatments which we provide on the face and neck.
What is unique about the Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment? While there are many energy-based devices on the market that are used to treat wrinkles and lines on various surfaces of the skin, the Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment is now the ONLY noninvasive procedure specifically indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest. What are the key benefits of the Ultherapy Decolletage Treatment?
Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the superficial skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that strengthens weak collagen and produces fresh, new collagen. The treatment also uses traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows us to see the layers of tissue we are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
Usually results are visible from 3-6 months after your Ultherapy treatment as new collagen works to smooth out the wrinkles skin on your chest. Most people enjoy fresh, young collagen for at least a year after their procedure. As skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the natural aging process. We are proud to be among the first providers of the Ultherapy Decolletage treatment in the Phoenix and Scottsdale areas. If you feel that you may be a candidate for Ultherapy to help get rid of your chest wrinkles, feel free to contact us to set up a consultation with our highly trained medical staff of physicians and certified technicians.
Ultherapy Frequently Asked Questions
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures? Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes only about an hour for most patients, and there is no downtime. It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
A recent software upgrade called “Ultherapy Amplify” now affords a more comfortable procedure. While comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, most patients now report that the procedure is quite tolerable. If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This sensation is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible (e.g. premedication, cooling fans), and patients tell us they leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come. Regency and Adam & Eve Medical Aesthetics offer a complimentary concierge service to and from the clinic for any patients that opt for the oral pain medication.
Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Is Ultherapy safe? The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 100,000 treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy? A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, physically or financially. There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed and toned. As we age, collagen loses its strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to generate a thermal affect under the skin. The thermal affect essentially jumpstarts a repair process that strengthens existing collagen and produces fresh, new collagen.
