Ultherapy® in Portland, ME

Ultherapy® is an FDA-approved ultrasound treatment to lift skin on the neck, face, chin, brow and décolletage, which can complement laser treatments or stand on its own. It can lift skin that’s sagging, and smooth out lines and wrinkles.

Good candidates for the treatment are patients with mild to moderate skin laxity, with noticeably less firmness. Specific issues that can be addressed are a lowered eyebrow line, loose neck skin, sagging under the chin, or wrinkles on the chest and face. Our medical staff at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England, led by medical director Dr. Maria Atkins, can help you determine whether you would benefit from Ultherapy®.

Ultherapy® is the only cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound energy, and also the only treatment cleared by the FDA to lift skin that has sagged or wrinkled on the neck, chest and face. Practitioners such as our trained medical staff also use ultrasound imaging during the procedure to safely and directly target layers of tissue beneath the skin, to make sure Ultherapy® is applied just where needed.

Why Ultherapy® Works

It uses ultrasound imaging to bypass the skin’s surface and deliver a precise amount of targeted ultrasound energy at the right depth and temperature to trigger the skin’s natural response and produce new collagen from underneath the skin, using the body’s natural rejuvenation processes. The result is tighter, younger-looking skin that actually tightens and shrinks itself using its own regenerative powers.

Benefits of Ultherapy®

  • Non-surgical and non-invasive
  • No downtime
  • Measurable results after a single treatment

What To Expect

The procedure can be uncomfortable so a topical numbing cream is applied for one hour prior to your treatment. The length of time the actual treatment can take 20 minutes to one hour and will depend on the areas being treated.  It’s not an immediate effect once you walk out the doors at our office; results will take up to three to four months as the body naturally regenerates collagen in the treated area. The individual and their natural aging process determine how long the results are visible, but that’s something that’s great to discuss at a free consultation with our medical staff.

Ultherapy® isn’t a substitute for a facelift, but if you don’t want to undergo surgery, or are looking to extend the effects of previous cosmetic surgeries, the treatment offers a safe, effective means of rejuvenating your appearance.

Ultherapy for Non-Surgical Skin Rejuvenation

Have you been searching for a minimally invasive way to rejuvenate your skin that doesn’t require surgery or extensive downtime? Look no further than Ultherapy. This revolutionary treatment uses the gentle but effective power of ultrasound energy to improve the appearance of the skin with minimal discomfort.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical procedure that can be used to gently lift and tighten the skin, improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines from delicate areas like the brows, chin, neck, and décolletage. Incredibly, this treatment is the only FDA approved skin tightening treatment that is ultrasound-based. This makes Ultherapy a fairly unique technique, as most non-invasive skin tightening treatments use radiofrequency and laser technology.

How Does it Work?

Unlike radiofrequency and laser technology, the ultrasound energy used in Ultherapy passes easily through the surface of the skin, delivering the perfect balance of ultrasound energy to the treatment area. Because the ultrasound energy is absorbed at an optimal temperature and skin depth, patients experience little downtime while still triggering the body’s natural regenerative process. As part of this regenerative process, new, fresh collagen is produced. Over the next several months after treatment, these structural changes in the skin result in visibly smoother, younger-looking skin.

The ultrasound energy used in Ultherapy is also used during the procedure for imaging. This gives our treatment providers a way to see each layer of tissue as it is treated, allowing for more precise, effective treatment. Each procedure takes between 30-90 minutes to complete and involves little to no downtime.

What are the Benefits of an Ultherapy Treatment?

Because Ultherapy uses the safe power of ultrasound energy, it offers a wide variety of benefits to clients. Some of these benefits include:

  • No downtime
  • Non-invasive
  • Stimulates the body’s collagen production
  • Measurable results after a single treatment

Am I a Candidate?

Nearly any man or woman interested in rejuvenating the skin on their brows, chin, neck, and décolletage is a potential candidate for Ultherapy. This treatment is safe enough to address skin laxity in nearly any kind of patient.
