Ultherapy® Skin Tightening

Loose, sagging skin is a common element of aging, so many people understand how frustrating it can be. But the patients of Kent V. Hasen, M.D., have more options than ever to improve the tone and condition of aging skin — without surgery. One of the most exciting of these options is Ultherapy. Popular among our Naples and Fort Myers, FL patients, Ultherapy is a completely non-invasive technique that uses ultrasound waves to stimulate the skin to build more of its own collagen for a significant improvement to many different areas of your face and neck, all with a single treatment and no downtime.

To find out how Ultherapy treatments can rejuvenate your skin, we invite you to contact us online or by phone at (239) 262-5662 for more information or to request a consultation.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

Ultherapy is cleared by the FDA to improve the appearance of the brow, chin, neck, and décolletage by tightening the skin and smoothing away wrinkles and laxity. Depending on your needs, we can also use Ultherapy to treat other areas of your body, such as your knees or buttocks.

During your consultation, Dr. Hasen helps you determine which options are right for you based on your lifestyle and current complaints. Ultherapy is generally best for patients who:

  • Are not yet ready for cosmetic surgery
  • Have had cosmetic surgery in the past and wish to prolong its results
  • Are younger and wish to postpone the aging process

If you're considering Ultherapy, it's important to remember that it's not a replacement for surgical improvement. Therefore, if you have more severe signs of facial aging, you may be better suited for a facelift or another type of surgical procedure. Our team can help you choose the right course of treatment based on your goals, skin condition, and lifestyle.

The Procedure

Ultherapy is a completely non-invasive procedure that's performed right here in our office. During your treatment, Dr. Hasen or his physician assistant, Brandie, uses a special handpiece to deliver ultrasound energy to your areas of primary concern. The ultrasound energy quickly goes to work activating your skin's natural regenerative process, stimulating it to produce new collagen. Each patient feels a different degree of mild discomfort, although most people don't require any sort of anesthetic.

Dr. Hasen or Brandie passes the handpiece back and forth over your skin for maximum effectiveness. In total, the procedure usually lasts between 60 and 90 minutes depending which are you have treated.

The Recovery

Immediately following your treatment, you will likely feel well enough to return to your usual activities. Some patients report lingering redness, tingling, and numbness, although these typically go away on their own after a couple of days.

The Result

The results of Ultherapy are not immediate. Instead, they develop over the course of several months while your skin produces more of its own collagen. Over time, new collagen causes the skin to contract and tighten, creating a "lifted" appearance that's smooth and toned.
