While there is no way to halt the skin aging process entirely, we offer many cosmetic procedures to slow down the signs of aging. If you are frustrated by moderate loose skin around the face, jawline, and neck, Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology may recommend a solution called Ultherapy.

Ultherapy is non-invasive, which means you can turn back the clock without going under the knife. Learn whether you qualify for this skin rejuvenation treatment by meeting with one of our knowledgeable staff. Our team members and board-certified dermatologists will perform an assessment and schedule your procedure as soon as possible. 

Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology brought Ultherapy into our clinic in 2010, and over the past decade, our expert providers have completed thousands of treatments. All of ou

How Ultherapy works 

Ultherapy is best for men and women who are bothered by sagging skin and wrinkles but don't want any downtime. We also use Ulthera as a preventive measure to delay natural aging. Our patients love Ultherapy because they can sidestep plastic surgery and still achieve their desired look. 

It can be particularly challenging to hide signs of aging in the face and neck. Ultherapy achieves your goals through cutting-edge ultrasound technology. Delivering ultrasound waves beneath the surface of the skin, Ulthera encourages your body to create brand new collagen.  Collagen is an essential part of our skin's structure and by creating more of it, we can achieve a healthy, tighter and overall more glowing complexion. 

As we mentioned, this form of skin rejuvenation does not require any surgery. However, it is important that the right candidates are chosen for this procedure. When you visit Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology, we can confirm your eligibility before moving forward. Read a few of our basic qualifications below. 

You are in good general health 

Although Ultherapy is easy, it is not beneficial for everyone. During your initial assessment at our San Francisco clinic, our staff will discuss your overall health and wellness. You should inform us about any medical conditions that affect your ability to recover, as well as any medications you are taking. This information helps us decide whether you are an ideal candidate for Ultherapy. 

You have mild to moderate skin issues 

The first signs of aging appear in the skin around your face and neck. Ultherapy is meant as a preventive treatment or a means to address moderate loose skin in these areas. Individuals with severely sagging or damaged skin may not get the results they want with Ultherapy and our providers will recommend one of our other treatments. Let us know if you spend time in the sun without protection, use tanning beds, or smoke as t

You can wait for Ultherapy results 

Ultherapy works by stimulating your body's natural collagen production. This part of the process takes time, and we don't expect results right away. The best outcomes usually appear 6 – 8 months treatment. Your timeline may vary based on your complexion and cosmetic goals. Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology can provide you with necessary aftercare instructions so you can maintain and enhance your results.

You can maintain your outcome 

While Ultherapy is incredibly effective, it cannot stop natural aging. Excellent candidates for Ultherapy are willing to attend follow-up appointments and have their treatment plans adjusted as necessary. For example, you may want to have a repeat session 12 months after your first appointment. Continue to take good care of your skin with a professional skincare regimen, which your provider will also outline.

Choosing a highly qualified provider is also essential for successful Ultherapy results. If you live in the Bay Area and want to learn about the many advantages of collagen production for loose skin, we invite you to call Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology.
