There is more to aging than mere wrinkles. Sure they are among the most visible and common signs of aging, but there is more to growing physically older than meets the eye. Saggy skin, pigmentation, and loss of volume are just a few of the many other factors that come with age and are unavoidable for most individuals. Fortunately, there are a myriad of ways to deemphasize signs of aging and fade out the lines, wrinkles, and other conditions that make your appearance look worn out and tired. Ultherapy is a cosmetic solution that is widely regarded as a very versatile form of combatting unwanted signs of aging and skin conditions. It’s among the most trusted skin tightening treatments and has many positive effects on your body that go beyond fading or deemphasizing wrinkles.
How Does Skin Tightening Work?
Collagen is a crucial protein responsible for the structural integrity of your body. More specifically, it keeps the skin tightly wrapped around various contours and curves of your natural bone structure. But as time goes on, the collagen is reduced and the skin sees an increase in laxity as it begins to sag. This is because there’s nothing to prop it up and hold it tightly in place. You may have some luck with anti-aging creams and salves, as well as a slew of natural skin tightening techniques. But these are not permanent solutions and at some point or another, the wrinkles and age marks are going to come back. But with targeted and specialized medical treatments, you can target specific areas of the face and body where collagen has been reduced and restore the structural integrity, decreasing skin laxity, making it smoother. This can be done without having to go through complex and potentially dangerous surgery. You have several minimally invasive options at your disposal that will do little to no damage to your skin.
Minimally Invasive and Non-Invasive Face Tightening
Anti-aging cosmetic solutions come in many different forms and utilize a wide range of methodologies. Minimally and non-invasive treatments are favored by patients and practitioners alike. These include some popular names, like Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, and Restylane. Minimally invasive treatments typically involve a set of injections into a certain area of the face where the medical intervention will perform a specific set of tasks to reduce the signs of aging and improve the quality of the skin. This usually involves promoting the production of collagen, fading wrinkles, reducing skin laxity, and restoring volume by lifting the skin. Ultherapy is non-invasive in this regard, as it does not even utilize any injections and performs the treatment without causing any damage to superficial layers of your skin, such as needle poking or cuts.
How Does Ultherapy Skin Tightening Face Work?
If you look through the many cosmetic procedures out there, you will notice a common pattern. Many of these procedures make use of your body’s own natural abilities to bring out the desired results. The role of laser skin tightening is to stimulate your body to perform certain tasks. It’s not so much the laser frequency itself that does most of the work and more so your body. Ultherapy boosts collagen production by causing microdamage to a layer of superficial muscular aponeurosis layer. The special frequency of the ultrasound causes heat damage to the SMAS layer. The body detects this damage and boosts collagen production to help repair the layer, and as a result, also improves skin elasticity. Different areas of the face require different approaches. For example, the lower area of the face can be treated using the Ulthera laser. Other kinds of treatments that utilize this same technology, such as the Ultherapy eye lift, work with a more sensitive area of the face. The Ultherapy skin lifting procedure is a little different and is performed in such a manner, that it does not damage the delicate fibers of your skin and muscle.
Does Ultherapy Radio Frequency Facial Work?
You will find countless cosmetic procedures out there that work with different areas of the face, utilizing different tools, equipment, compounds, and methodology. To ensure the quality of these treatments, and more importantly, the safety of the patients, these procedures must go through rigorous federal-assigned testing to become accessible to the general public. The Ultherapy face lift was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), a government body tasked with checking the quality and upholding safety standards for any food or drug that goes out into the market. Not only that but there are medical boards that are responsible for approving practitioners to perform the treatment. MiracleFace MedSpa’s own Dr. Schwarzburg is board-certified and a medical professional who is licensed to perform not only Ultherapy skin tightening treatments but a vast variety of many other cosmetic solutions. If you look through MiracleFace MedSpa’s history of treating patients with Ultherapy procedures, many clients have been satisfied with how much the quality of their skin has improved. Within 6 months you will see a noticeable difference and major improvements in skin tightness that will be visible to the naked eye.
Does Ultherapy Work On the Lower Face?
The use of Ultherapy for lower face is quite common. This ultrasound technology is used to tighten the skin around the chin, jawline, getting rid of wrinkles and jowls which are a common complaint among individuals who are experiencing problems with age-related skin sagging. There are other skin tightening treatments out there, such as Secret RF microneedling or Fraxel Dual laser, which also induce production of collagen and resultant skin tightening. However, while these procedures are effective in their own right, when it comes to reducing skin laxity, Ultherapy jaw and lower face procedures are considered to be some of the most effective on the market. Not only is the procedure able to target the lower area of the face, but also performs neck skin tightening. Many MiracleFace MedSpa patients ask Dr. Schwarzburg for his recommendation on a saggy neck treatment. Among the first recommendations he, as well as many of his counterparts, gives is the Ultherapy procedure. Make sure to visit your medical professional and consult them about neck tightening procedures to see if Ultherapy is the solution you’re looking for.
Ultherapy Procedure Areas
As with some of the most utilized procedures out there, Ultherapy prides itself on being a versatile cosmetic solution that can treat a wide variety of areas on the face and body.

The Ultherapy skin tightening stomach procedure will smooth these out, making the stomach look significantly younger.
Is the Procedure Painful?
One of the main advantages of Ultherapy is that it is non-invasive. What many invasive treatments have to deal with is minimizing the pain for the patient. Fortunately, this isn’t much of a problem for an ultrasound based thermal treatment that does not pierce or cut the skin. While you may feel a little stinging or burning, in some cases even tingling, these sensations can barely be classified as “painful”. Some patients don’t even feel anything at all. But in case of some uncomfortable sensations, the practitioner can numb specific areas of the body to reduce or even entirely eliminate the pain.
Is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Safe?
The skin tightening procedures that you find on the market today require FDA approval and abide by strict health codes and regulations. While everyone will have a different reaction to the treatment, safety is rarely a concern with this treatment and only a few rare cases have been reported of something not going as planned during the procedure. With a seasoned professional and qualified practitioner like Dr. Schwarzburg, safety should not be a concern for you at MiracleFace MedSpa.
What Ultherapy Side Effects Should I Know About?
Most patients report only a few side effects after their Ultrasound skin tightening treatment. These will include minor nuisances that disappear on their own in no time, such as a little soreness and some noticeable reddening of the skin. However, after a few days, these will fade away on their own, having caused little to no discomfort to the patients. However, regardless of how minor the side effects may be or how safe the treatment is, always remember to speak with your medical professional about the possible risks of the treatment. You will also discuss this in great detail with Dr. Schwarzburg, however, being a little more cautious is always important.
What Is the Ultherapy Cost?
Giving one simple answer to the question “How much does Ultherapy cost?” is not entirely possible. There are a lot of factors to consider and the NYC Ultherapy cost will vary depending on what area of the body you’re looking to treat, the kind of results you’re looking for, as well as how many sessions of non surgical skin tightening you will require. You will go into more detail on the skin tightening cost with Dr. Schwarzburg who will break down the pricing model and let you know the exact Ultherapy price and what you can expect from ultrasound and laser skin tightening treatment cost.
How Much Is Ultherapy Under Chin Skin Tightening?

As with any other non surgical facelift cost out there, until you go in for a professional consultation, most you can expect to learn about the costs will be presented in the form of the price range. Do your research on the Ultherapy cost NYC clinics offer and see what suits your budget.
How long does Ultherapy last?
The results of Ultherapy will vary from person to person. We are all built differently and our bodies also react to the treatment in their unique ways. A major determining factor in how long the results will last is the amount of microscarring and the volume of collagen that is produced during the treatment. This mostly depends on treatment setting parameters and your innate ability to generate new collagen. Additionally, if you keep to a skincare regimen that prioritizes health and wellness, the results of Ulthera therapy can last anywhere from 2-3 years, with recommended annual maintenance appointments. These annual appointments are quite common with many other treatments, be it microneedling RF skin tightening or plasma fibroblasting. Other than that, there are very few things you need to be mindful of post-treatment.
When Will the Results Become Visible?
Since skin tightening treatments for face and body rely on your body to generate collagen and elastin production from the micro-injuries, it is natural for the results to become apparent after a few months. For most patients, this can be anywhere from three to four months and this number depends on how fast and how much of a collagen your body can produce.
What Are the Downtime and Recovery After the Procedure?
There is no post-treatment downtime for the procedure since it is non-invasive. Your body doesn’t need to recover from any cuts, incisions, or stitches, making the recovery a breeze for most patients. You can return to your normal daily routine after the procedure with only a little bit of light aching and redness, which are two of the most common side effects. Luckily they can barely be considered an obstacle in your normal day-to-day tasks and are very easy to deal with.
Why Ultherapy Is Worth It?
Few treatments out there will give you the same results as Ultherapy without causing extra damage to your body as a result of a more surgically invasive procedure. There are plenty of skin tightening serums out there for you to try out, as well as many surgical face and body skin tightening treatments. These may be effective in their unique ways, but they do also involve extra side effects, long recovery times, and more complicated procedures which may not be something that everyone is ready for. Ultherapy offers a more convenient alternative, causes microscopic damage to the body, and very few side effects that interfere with your life post-treatment. It’s worth it for those looking to smooth out wrinkles and restore vibrancy to their face and body, but are not in favor of going through surgical incisions, cuts, and other complicated steps.
What You Can See Before and After Ultherapy Procedure?
What makes Ultherapy New York treatments so favored among the local crowd is the visible difference you can see before and after the procedure. After a few months following the treatment, you will see major improvements in the tightness and smoothness of your skin, as the loose skin gets tighter and the skin is lifted. Minor nuisances like jowls, wrinkles, and other age marks will be much harder to see. Additionally, the treated area won’t only look smooth, but also feel smooth to the touch. While the results may take some time to fully set in, you will see the visible improvement over time. And before you know it, your face and body have changed in ways you never thought possible before Ultherapy.
Botox is one of the most in-demand treatments in the beauty industry. As a result, many patients are always curious about how Botox can work in unison with Ultherapy. The answer is you totally can combine the two treatments and get even better results. While Ultherapy targets saggy skin, Botox can help reduce deep lines and wrinkles even further.
Tightening Skin Around the Belly
The belly is one of the most common areas on the body where fat can build up. This is why so many patients are after cosmetic solutions that can improve the appearance of their belly, getting rid of wrinkles and other age marks that ruin an otherwise attractive and smooth tummy. Make sure to consult a trained professional before getting treated as the procedure has varying effects depending on your body structure.
Other Uses for Ultherapy
Versatility is the name of the game when it comes to Ultherapy. Anything from forehead wrinkles, to saggy areas around the eyes, as well as age marks on the rest of your body don’t stand a chance with laser skin tightening. On the face alone there are countless uses for laser skin tightening and rejuvenation. In the lower area of the face, you have jowl smoothing, jawline chiseling, and fading wrinkles around the lips. On the upper portions you have forehead brow, and eye smoothing, all of which are quite common areas for wrinkling and aging.
Other Non-Invasive Facial Treatments
MiracleFace MedSpa isn’t limited to Ultherapy with its non-invasive skin smoothing treatments. Dr. Schwarzburg specializes in minimally and non-invasive facial aesthetic procedures which are designed to help you gain control over your looks and restore youthfulness, vigor, and energy to the face. These include Botox, dermal fillers, microneedling, and plenty more that will help you find the exact results that you’re looking for.
The Difference Between Ultherapy and PDO thread lift
PDO thread lifts are another common facial procedure that tightens the skin and fades wrinkles or other age marks. So, most people have some trouble deciding on which treatment they should go for on their path to achieving a more youthful appearance. The main difference between the two treatments is the methodology. As was already established, Ultherapy is non-invasive and does not require any injections, incisions, or cuts to be made into the skin in order to work. PDO thread lifts, on the other hand, are minimally invasive. The threads are injected into the face using specialized tools which do poke holes into the skin. While the damage these tools cause is quite small in nature, the injection sites may be prone to bruising and will need time to recover. But, as a result of its more direct approach to skin smoothing, PDO thread lift works faster than Ultherapy. Both are very effective in their own unique ways and depending on what you’re looking for from your skin tightening procedure, offer their own benefits and setbacks.
