Ultherapy Skin Tightening

Skin laxity is the first visible sign of aging. Our skin is an organ, and it ages just like the rest of the others. You may have noticed some skin laxity as early as your twenties or even late teens with lines and wrinkles around the eyes. As we get older, a combination of lost collagen, gravity, genetics, sun damage, and movement all culminate in skin that simply isn’t as taut as it used to be. Fortunately, there are options for tightening the skin—and not all of them are surgical. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to deliver heat energy deep into the skin to stimulate collagen exactly where you want it.

What Is Ultherapy?

How do you know Ultherapy is penetrating tissue layers at just the right spot? Your provider has access to ultrasound imaging, the same tech that is used in prenatal appointments. This allows the experts to see in real-time where they are delivering heat energy so that you can enjoy optimal, customized results. Ultherapy is most often requested on the face but can also be used virtually anywhere else on the body. For example, it’s also a very popular procedure for the buttocks. Connect with RefinedMD in Los Gatos and find out if you’re a good candidate for this popular procedure.

How Ultrasound Technology and Heat Ramps Up Collagen

Heat is an effective tool for tightening the skin because it “tells” the body to ramp up collagen production at the treatment site. Heat can be delivered in a variety of ways including ultrasound, but also radiofrequency which is the foundation for another popular treatment called Thermage FLX. Both treatments rebuild Collagen.


Collagen is the secret to youthful skin and one of the reasons children and teens have such dewy, flawless complexions. However, we naturally produce less collagen as we get older. The exact rate of collagen depletion is unique for each person, but if you’ve noticed laxity, sagging, lines, and wrinkles, a reduction in collagen is going to be a key factor. The good news is that your body is capable of producing more collagen at any age, but needs a little help once you’re in your twenties. This is exactly what Ultherapy does, and in an incredibly precise manner thanks to the ultrasound technology. Ultherapy is known for setting the gold standard in skin tightening, promising results that get better in the weeks and months following the treatment.

Ultherapy Results

There’s a reason Ultherapy is called the “lunchtime lift.” It’s quick, easy, and very effective as a non-surgical lift for those looking to turn back the clock and reclaim tight, toned, youthful skin. Just one Ultherapy treatment can last 18 months with no need for maintenance sessions within this timeframe. Other treatments can require a series of initial sessions, so for those with busy schedules, Ultherapy is the clear winner. Currently, Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared device to non-surgically lift and tighten skin on the face, neck, and chest.
