What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a procedure that takes advantage of the latest in ultrasound technology to lift sagging skin, thereby firming and toning problem areas on the face, neck, and chest. This procedure can also be used to provide more aesthetically-pleasing contours to the face, neck, and chin whenever the aging process has resulted in a lack of definition.
Benefits of Ultherapy®
Our Palm Coast patients who choose Ultherapy® enjoy:
- Tighter, more uplifted skin
- A reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
- A more youthful appearance without surgery or downtime
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Ultherapy®?
The ultrasound technology used in Ultherapy® has been around for decades and has therefore been determined very safe. You may have Ultherapy® even if you have a medical condition that might otherwise prohibit you from having anesthesia.
What do I Need to do Before Ultherapy®?
Avoid extreme sun exposure, (including tanning beds), as this could cause your skin to become more sensitive. The day of your appointment, do not wear any makeup or lotion in the area where Ultherapy® will be performed.
What Should I Expect on the Day of my Ultherapy® Procedure?
Our patients lie comfortably still on a table throughout the procedure. We will begin by pulling your hair back away from your face and cleansing your skin thoroughly. If you are having Ultherapy® performed on your chest, we may ask you to undress from the waist up and wrap a towel around your body.
Dr. Zamora uses a hand-held device with custom controls that allow him to adjust the frequency of ultrasound waves as needed. This device is pressed directly against your skin, delivering energy into its deepest layers.
Some discomfort is associated with Ultherapy®, the amount of which varies from patient to patient. If you require extensive treatment or have a low pain tolerance, Dr. Zamora may prescribe a sedative or local anesthetic.
How Long Does it Take to Perform Ultherapy®?
It can take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
What to Expect After Ultherapy®
Any discomfort you experience during your procedure will immediately subside once it is over. At that time, you will probably be anxious to see results; however, you may not notice a difference right away. It typically takes between two and three months for results to become fully visible.
Will I Have Scars After Ultherapy®?
One of the things our Daytona Beach patients like most about Ultherapy® is the fact that it leaves no scars whatsoever! Now it’s possible to look and feel your very best without having to worry about unsightly scars that might detract from your final results.
How Long Will the Results of Ultherapy® Last?
Ultherapy® stimulates your body’s own natural collagen production and therefore provides long-lasting results. You will continue to lose collagen over time, but the additional amount you produce as a result of Ultherapy® will result in you aging much slower than you otherwise would have.
How Much Does Ultherapy® Cost in Daytona Beach?
The cost of each Ultherapy® procedure is different and based on a number of factors that are unique to you. To make Ultherapy® as affordable as possible, we accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, in addition to a number of affordable financing options.
If you are looking for a safe, non-surgical procedure that will reduce many signs of aging, Ultherapy® could be right for you. Contact Sergio M. Zamora MD, FACS to schedule a consultation if you are in Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, Ormond Beach, or one of the surrounding communities along the Palm Coast of Florida.
