At Aluna Vein Centers, we believe that everyone should love the skin they're in. We provide a wide variety of non-surgical cosmetic skin treatments to alleviate spider veins, eliminate fat, and help our patients achieve healthy, gorgeous bodies, and Dr. Massoudi
has years of experience treating patients in the Beverly Hills, Encino, and Irvine areas. For patients that want all the benefits of a facelift without a messy surgery, Ultherapy can help.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment to lift and tighten skin on the eyebrows, neck, and under the chin. It's the only FDA-cleared treatment of its kind, and it's been proven to show lasting results without invasive surgery.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy uses imaging technology from an ultrasound to locate collagen under the skin, then directs the ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production deep in the skin. This new collagen effectively tightens and lifts the skin from the bottom up, all without harming the body or even piercing the skin.
Collagen is the protein network that gives the skin its natural structure and rigidity, but over time, we lose collagen, causing our skin to sag and droop. Ultherapy naturally stimulates collagen production, revitalizing the body's natural collagen network and giving new life to sagging skin. Unlike botox, which merely paralyzes skin, or collagen injections, which fill out the lost collagen, Ultherapy generates new, naturally-produced collagen - providing much more natural looking results.
Just about anyone is a candidate for Ultherapy, but it works best for people experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity. Patients with severe skin laxity may require multiple treatment sessions, but even in these cases, Ultherapy is often still the best option. If you experience any of the following, Ultherapy can help you gain a healthier, more naturally youthful looking face:
Droopy eyebrows and eyelids
A less open-eye appearance
Cheek and neck tissue laxity can lead to:
Flattening of the mid-cheek
“Marionette” lines on chin: downturned mouth
Loss of jawline: jowls
Sagging under the chin and neck
What is the Treatment Process?
Treatment only takes about an hour, and because Ultherapy is non-invasive and non-surgical, you can resume your daily activities immediately after treatment. At the start of treatment, your doctor will clean and prep your face, then apply Ultrasound gel and use an Ultrasound probe to find the ideal spots for collagen production. Once these areas are located, your practitioner will apply the Ultherapy energy to these areas. Some patients report a feeling of warmth or discomfort during this time, but the feelings are generally mild.
After completing the treatment, your practitioner will clean your face and provide detailed post-treatment care instructions, which may include moisturizers and creams to ensure your skin has all the nutrients it needs. Over the course of the next year, your skin will naturally produce more collagen, tightening and firming your skin!
What Are Results Like?
Most patients see some changes immediately, but the full effects build gradually over the course of the following few months. As your skin produces more collagen, you'll see a lifting and toning effect to sagging skin that continues to develop up to 6 months after treatment. Over time, your skin will adopt a smoother, tighter, and firmer feel, your eyes will open up, the contour of your brow will improve, and your facial skin will develop a fresher, more youthful appearance.
Don't just take it from us, though - hear what patients have to say about Ultherapy:
“There is no more hooding; it opened up my eyes – I can now wear eye shadow.”
“I like looking better without looking ‘done.’”
“I like the feel of overall skin wellness.”
“There was some pain during the treatment, but it was worth it!”
“Even my husband noticed the difference!”
