Reduce the Signs of Aging with Ultherapy

When it comes to firm, elastic, and supple skin, you have collagen and elastin to thank. As you age, however, your body produces fewer of these proteins, so your skin grows saggy, and fine lines and wrinkles appear.

You don’t have to turn to plastic surgery to reverse the hands of time. At our convenient SkinMD locations in Chicago, Orland Park, Skokie, and Evergreen Park, Illinois, men and women in the Chicago area can revitalize their appearance with Ultherapy Illinois.

Restoring collagen production to tighten skin

Ultherapy® is an innovative, FDA-cleared technique designed to improve and tighten your skin. Thought of as a noninvasive face-lift, this therapy uses ultrasound technology to trigger your body’s natural healing response by jump-starting collagen and elastin production.

During an Ultherapy session, we pass the specially designed applicator across your treatment site to deliver precise amounts of ultrasound energy.

Unlike surgical treatments, Ultherapy doesn’t disturb the surface of your skin. Instead, its energy passes through your skin’s layers until reaching the optimal depth for healing. As your tissue responds to the ultrasound energy, fresh collagen and elastin return to the site.

We recommend the Ultherapy system for tightening and lifting skin in several areas, including your:

  • Brow
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Chest

While Ultherapy can’t replace a face-lift, it can provide remarkable results that reduce the signs of aging without the risks or downtime of surgery.

Get results with Ultherapy

SkinMD Ultherapy treatments take between 60-90 minutes, but chest Ultherapy takes only 30 minutes.

During your consultation, we discuss your concerns, evaluate your skin, and outline the most effective treatment strategy. While most men and women see results after a single treatment, we sometimes recommend more than one session for maximum benefit.

When your Ultherapy begins, we apply ultrasound gel to the treatment area. This gel helps conduct the ultrasound energy once we put the applicator in place. As your Ultherapy begins, we review detailed imaging deep within your skin to determine the best delivery placement for the ultrasound energy.

Ultherapy is usually well-tolerated, but you may feel tiny amounts of energy while it’s underway.

After your appointment, you can return to regular activities immediately. You may notice redness, mild swelling, or tenderness at the treatment site, but these symptoms usually fade quickly. You can often see improvement in your skin immediately following your Ultherapy® appointment.

You’ll continue seeing great results over the next 2-3 months as healthy, new collagen appears in the area to lift and tighten your skin.
