What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a skin-tightening treatment that uses ultrasound technology. The ultrasound waves can combat wrinkles, fine lines, scarring, and loose, sagging skin.

As you age, your skin can loosen and sag, and collagen and elastin production typically declines. Collagen and elastin are proteins primarily responsible for maintaining elasticity and tighter, younger-looking skin.

Your Rejuvenate specialist can perform this non-invasive treatment in the office using an ultrasound device to view the deep connective tissue and muscles below your skin.

The ultrasound energy is concentrated and targets loose skin with low-levels of focused heat. That makes your muscles contract and stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, elastin production, and cell regeneration over time.

During your Ultherapy treatment, your Rejuvenate specialist applies a special gel to the treatment area and glides the device over your skin to deliver the controlled ultrasound energy. Treatment time varies and can take up to 2 hours per visit.

You might experience mild swelling and redness, but this subsides quickly. Some people notice results immediately. You typically see optimal results anywhere from a few weeks to a few months after your treatment.

What is Pellevé?

Pellevé is a skin-tightening treatment that works similarly to Ultherapy. Pellevé uses radiofrequency laser energy to heat the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. It can treat:

  • Forehead lines

  • Nasolabial folds

  • Wrinkles around the mouth

  • Loose skin and lines around the eyes

You can see results right away, but you typically see the best results with a few treatments.

Who is a good candidate for skin tightening?

Most adults are good candidates for Ultherapy and Pellevé, but the best candidates have lost some degree of skin elasticity and have clear, realistic goals and expectations about the outcomes.

If you have specific medical complications or skin conditions, you might not be a suitable candidate for ultrasound or radiofrequency skin-tightening. Your Rejuvenate specialist can help you decide on the best treatments to tighten and revitalize your skin.
