Non-Surgical Facelift

Ultherapy in Plymouth, Canton & Northville

Non-Surgical Facelift Procedure

Enhance is proud to offer the acclaimed non-surgical lifting procedure, Ultherapy®, in Plymouth, MI.

Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow; and now it's also the only non-invasive treatment specifically FDA-cleared to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage! Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin, with no downtime required. The result? Tighter, better-fitting skin, from the brow to the chest!

Natural. Non-invasive. No downtime.

The Science Behind Ultherapy

Over time, factors such as sun exposure, lifestyle, and gravity can age your skin. Visible changes take place such as increased wrinkles, cheek droop, eye hooding, jowl formation, and sagging neck. Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive "non-surgical facelift" that can alleviate these symptoms.

Ultherapy lifts and tightens skin gradually from the inside out — without surgery or downtime by triggering the growth of new collagen, and by providing the optimal treatment depth to lift skin without cutting or disturbing the surface of the skin. The Ulthera® System, used to perform Ultherapy, is the only non-invasive device that allows our clinicians to see precisely which layers of tissue they are treating. The system's patented DeepSEE® technology provides an added level of precision and safety to the treatment.

How Ultherapy Works

Step 1

Over time, underlying changes to the skin tissue result in lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.

Step 2

Ultherapy delivers ultrasound energy non-invasively to heat skin tissue at multiple depths, triggering a natural regenerative response that stimulates the growth of new collagen.

Step 3

Results appear gradually over 2-3 months and improvements can continue up to 6 months after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy uses the body's own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the dé colletage.

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. Ultherapy is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.

With the addition of the new Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment, Ultherapy is also now the only non-invasive procedure specifically indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.

Ultherapy uses sound energy — tried-and-true ultrasound — which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin's foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.

Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.

Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they're actually very compatible.

Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultherapy doesn't involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies on your body's own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.

After your Ultherapy Treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.

The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.

The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.

A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has "relaxed" to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of "maturing" skin. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.

While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. There are also younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
