Do you suffer from saggy and/or wrinkled skin underneath your chin? Known as “submental fat,” (but more commonly known as a “double chin”), this condition affects many different people and can be caused by simple things like weight gain or old age.
At our Lancaster aesthetics company, we know double chins can be frustrating to hide, but with our revolutionary Ultherapy treatment, you can get rid of your double chin once and for all!
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical FDA-cleared procedure that uses ultrasound technology to naturally lift and tighten your skin. Our Lancaster aesthetics procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer. It’s non-invasive and requires no downtime, which means you can enjoy your results quickly and without having to undergo surgery.
Our Ultherapy procedure is both fast and simple. Once you’re settled in, we’ll hold a hand-held ultrasound device to the targeted areas of your skin and as we move the device, it will heat small areas of tissue. You may feel a mild warming sensation or a prickling beneath the skin with each pass of the device, but overall, it’s relatively painless.
Once we’re finished, small areas of your skin may feel numb or be sensitive to the touch, but most patients are comfortable after the treatment. If you experience any discomfort, you can take an aspirin or ibuprofen to ease the discomfort.
Collagen is what keeps our skin firm and elastic and as we age, we lose collagen and begin experiencing saggy, wrinkled skin. Ultherapy targets the skin below the surface and triggers a natural response from our skin to begin collagen production.
While some see results immediately, it takes 60-90 days for full results to appear. This is because it takes time for your skin to produce collagen and become smoother and tighter. The best part about Ultherapy is the zero downtime it requires. Once we finish your procedure, you can go about your normal daily activities without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements!
If you’re tired of your double chin and want to get rid of it once and for all, contact our Lancaster aesthetics company. We’ll set up a one-on-one consultation to discuss your situation and your goals, then get you started with your Ultherapy session!
