Have time and the natural aging process caused the skin around your eyes, under your chin and on your neck to begin to droop and sag? Just because you are getting older doesn't mean you have to look like it. Reclaim your youthful, vibrant beauty once again by Ultherapyvisiting your Kaysville, UT dermatologist, Jacqueline Silkey, MD, FACS, for Ultherapy today.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a safe, noninvasive cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound imaging to gently and gradually lift sagging skin using the body's own regenerative response. Ultherapy can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lift sagging skin on the face, neck and chest.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy uses ultrasound imaging to stimulate the body's own collagen production, causing the skin to firm and wrinkles to fade. A truly non-invasive procedure, Ultherapy requires no toxins, no needles, no cutting and no disruption to the skin. Ultherapy doesn't forcefully manipulate the body; instead it activate's the body's own natural response for amazing results.

Is Ultherapy Safe?

Yes, Ultherapy from your dermatologist in Kaysville, UT, Dr. Silkey, is considered quite safe. Common side effects include redness, swelling, tenderness and tingling, all of which typically disappear on their own within a few hours. Bruising and numbness have been reported, but are less common.

How Long Does Ultherapy Take?

Ultherapy typically only takes between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the area of the body being treated. Once the procedure is over, you are free to resume your daily activities right away. There is no downtime.

When Will I See Results?

The results of Ultherapy will gradually take effect over the first two to three months following your treatment as your body responds. This provides the most natural appearance possible.

As you age, it is normal for your skin to begin to wrinkle, sag and make you look older. Just because these conditions are normal does not mean you have to live with them forever. Whether you are 20 or 90, you deserve to love the way you look. Call your dermatologist in Kaysville, UT, Dr. Silkey, and ask how Ultherapy can help you reach your beauty goals today.
