Non-Surgical Ulthera Facelift & Neck Lift for Syracuse, NY and Central New York – Ultherapy® FAQs

Ultherapy SkinLaze Skin Laze Syracuse NY CNY ULaze Skin Tightening, Lifting, Rejuvenation

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Through focused ultrasound, Ultherapy helps Rochester and Syracuse, NY patients lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime. This revolutionary treatment is offered by Dr. Douglas Halliday’s team of skincare experts at SkinLaze in East Syracuse, NY.

How is Ultherapy® at SkinLaze different from other Face and Neck Cosmetic Procedures?

Ultherapy at SkinLaze is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes only about an hour for most patients, and there is no downtime.

It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.

What does collagen do? How does Ultherapy stimulate the creation of collagen?

Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed and toned. As we age, collagen loses its strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to generate a thermal affect under the skin. The thermal affect essentially jump starts a repair process that strengthens existing collagen and produces fresh, new collagen.

Do Ultherapy® treatments at SkinLaze in Syracuse, NY hurt?

The treatments are very well tolerated. Like any aesthetic procedure, comfort thresholds vary from client to client. If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This sensation is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.

We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible and clients tell us they leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.

How long do the effects of Ultherapy® treatments at SkinLaze in Syracuse, NY last?

Clients treated with Ultherapy over the past several years have a high degree of satisfaction. Clients still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but keep in mind that skin continues to age. Other preventative measures over time such as proper skincare and Provence chemical peels can help you enjoy years of youthful, more vibrant skin on your face and neck.

Are there any side effects?

There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are generally mild and temporary in nature.

How much does Ultherapy® at SkinLaze in Syracuse, NY cost?

Since this is completely customizeable treatment that takes into account a multitude of factors, each client’s investment will be different. These treatments however are much more affordable that invasive procedures that require surgery and downtime.

Like any serious esthetic or medical procedure that you consider, you should never make a decision on price alone. Remember: cheap things are seldom good and good things are seldom cheap. Places offering “cheap” skin tightening and rejuvenation treatments that do not have an FDA approved indication, usually do so at a hidden cost

Is Ultherapy® at SkinLaze safe?

The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 100,000 treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.

How many treatments does it take?

The SkinLaze protocol performed by our certified technicians calls for one treatment. The treatment time will depend on the area being treated and the pulses recommended for your customized treatment

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy at SkinLaze?

A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm.

A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.

While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, physically or financially. There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Is Ultherapy® at SkinLaze appropriate for both men and women?

Yes! Both women and men globally are receiving Ultherapy.
