Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening with Ultherapy®?

Skin tightening with Ultherapy is a noninvasive procedure that lifts and tightens sagging skin. Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to treat the skin on several problem areas, including your:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Brows
  • Décolletage

Ultherapy uses safe ultrasound energy to help your skin rebuild its collagen and elastin — the underlying support structure for firm, supple skin. There’s no surgery, no downtime, and it’s completely noninvasive. 

How does ultrasound tighten loose skin?

For more than 50 years, the medical community has been using ultrasound as a diagnostic tool and to assist a surgeon’s movements during medical procedures. As a therapy, ultrasound delivers collagen-boosting treatment to skin tissue without incisions, toxins, or needles. Ultherapy treatments bypass the surface of your skin, sending the right amount of energy to deeper layers of tissue.

The ultrasound energy safely heats the tissue in a way that triggers your body’s natural healing response to produce fresh, new collagen cells. In the weeks that follow your Ultherapy treatment, your body continues to build new collagen and elastin, and your skin appears tighter and more youthful. 

What is thread lifting, and how does it tighten skin?

Thread lifting is a type of skin tightening procedure in which your provider inserts temporary sutures just under the surface of your skin for a visible lift in sagging areas of your face. Unlike a surgical face-lift, a thread lift is only minimally invasive, so you can get tighter, younger-looking skin without the risks of surgery or extensive downtime. Thread lifting also stimulates your body’s natural healing response, causing your skin to produce new collagen.

Collagen keeps your skin strong, supple, and radiant, but as you age, your body produces less of it. As your body attempts to heal the tissue surrounding the medical-grade, dissolvable threads, you continue to renew collagen beneath the surface of your skin. The sutures eventually dissolve, but collagen renewal continues, so you enjoy long-lasting results. 

Thread lifts are low-risk treatments for tighter, firmer skin. You can even pair thread lifting with Ultherapy for instantly visible skin tightening and firming. Essential Bella customizes a treatment that’s right for you.
