Ultherapy® in Manhattan, NYC
As people age, certain changes become noticeable in the skin on our faces and necks, such as lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. If you feel self-conscious about your appearance as you age, board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. can help you achieve a more natural, pleasing look with Ultherapy®.
What Is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy®, short for ultrasound therapy, is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that uses our skin’s own natural regenerative abilities to reduce or eliminate standard signs of aging, including lifting the eyebrow, chin, neck, and chest skin.
Benefits of Ultherapy®
Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that is designed to actually lift the skin, providing you with the following benefits:
- A more natural, younger looking appearance without the risks associated with surgery.
- Elevated self-esteem with an improved appearance that looks more youthful.
- Look as young as you feel with reduced or eliminated wrinkles and lifted skin on your face, neck, and chest.
The Ultherapy® Procedure
Ultherapy® uses ultrasound to deposit energy deep beneath the skin at the desired temperature to instigate collagen regeneration. The treatment spurs a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, which generates more collagen. Ultherapy® doesn’t involve any creams, fillers, or toxins because it relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
Preparing for Ultherapy®
Because Ultherapy is performed on an outpatient basis with no need for anesthesia, there are few pre-treatment requirements. Dr. Swift and his expert team will discuss anything necessary for the procedure at the initial consultation where you will have a chance to ask questions.
Ultherapy® usually takes between 60 and 90 minutes for face and neck treatments, while chest treatments usually take 30 minutes. Because Ultherapy® is non-invasive and non-surgical, there are no post-treatment requirements, so you can return to work, school, or your other activities immediately. There is no downtime required with Ultherapy®.
Is Ultherapy® Right for Me?
If you have lax or sagging skin or wrinkles on your face, neck, or chest that could benefit from being lifted, Ultherapy® is an excellent treatment for you to refine your appearance without surgery. The best way to determine if this treatment is appropriate is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Swift to discuss your options and your expected results.
How Much Does Ultherapy® Cost?
Costs for Ultherapy® can vary widely, depending on the extent of the treatment area, and Dr. Swift and his expert team will discuss your treatment plans and associated costs at your initial consultation. Most insurance plans will not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Prosper Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
