An aging face isn’t the worst thing in the world, but it is one of the most frustrating problems adults encounter. In our long history of providing plastic surgery and nonsurgical services in the Santa Barbara area, we have discovered that, for the most part, people don’t mind getting older. They don’t so much mind looking a little older; it is an inevitable fact of life, after all. What our patients want is to match their appearance to their inner radiance. Loose, sagging tissue can rob the face of its friendliness and vitality. Ultherapy can get that back.

Ultherapy Non-Invasive Tissue Tightening

The signs of aging aren’t related only to getting older. There’s more to cosmetic changes than that. In essence, it all comes down to chemicals; namely collagen and elastin. For the skin to stay firm and elastic, we need a continual influx of these chemicals. The problem with the signs of aging is that the fibroblasts that make collagen stop performing in early adulthood. By the time we are in our mid-twenties, we are already working through our stores of collagen and elastin. No wonder we start to see frown lines, crow’s feet and laugh lines sometime in our thirties.

It may sound like bad news to see that lines and creases form because cells go dormant. It’s not. Because science has proven this, scientists have discovered ways around the decline of collagen. The Ultherapy system was born out of this acknowledgment of collagen deterioration. Using FDA-approved ultrasound energy in two different ways, Ultherapy stimulates profound collagen production to re-establish a strong foundation for tissue on the face and neck.

Ultherapy first utilizes ultrasound waves to observe various layers of tissue beneath the skin. This is similar to the ultrasounds performed in hospitals and medical offices. Once three key layers of tissue are identified, the system is then adjusted to deliver high-frequency ultrasound waves to each of them. Dispersing energy throughout the skin and underlying tissues, Ultherapy provokes new collagen accumulation where it is needed most. The results are dramatic. Studies show that a single Ultherapy treatment can make a person look up to 10 years younger.
