VILLANOVA & COLLEGEVILLE
Facial aging is a concern for many cosmetic dermatology patients; no one wants to look older than they feel. A common sign of aging is drooping skin along the jawline, neck, and even décolletage, caused by a loss of natural collagen and skin elasticity. The result is a tired and sagging appearance that does not reflect your feelings of energy and vitality. Surgical treatment is one dependable way to remove loose skin, but many patients seek non-invasive ways to meet their goals.
With Ultherapy in Villanova and Collegeville, the team at Bryn Mawr Dermatology can help you achieve youthful and firm skin that restores your confidence.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive device designed to lift and tighten the skin. It uses ultrasound technology, which allows it to bypass the surface of the skin and effectively stimulate the production of collagen without disrupting the skin itself.

HOW ULTHERAPY WORKS
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive device designed to lift and tighten the skin. It uses ultrasound technology, which allows it to bypass the surface of the skin and effectively stimulate the production of collagen without disrupting the skin itself. Collagen is the what creates the structural latticework for skin and is what gives skin the firmness and suppleness patients enjoy in their 20s and early 30s. As we age, natural collagen remodeling decreases in speed and efficiency; this falls short of the quantity of collagen required to battle the external causes of aging: gravity, pollution, free radicals, UV exposure, and general wear and tear. Ultherapy is particularly effective at delivering focused energy where it will create the best possible results.
As treatment is intended to support the body’s natural healing processes, results develop in the weeks following treatment. With the creation of additional collagen, the skin begins to firm and lift in the treated areas. Patients see full results after three months and enjoy lasting benefits of their procedure for two to three years, making their treatment maintenance schedule easy to keep.
Ultherapy is perfect for Bryn Mawr Dermatology’s busy patients who want the benefits of effective anti-aging, without the hassle of invasive procedures. Treatment times vary from patient to patient (depending on the specific areas we are treating) but tend to take less time than watching a movie. And what’s more amazing is that there is no downtime. Because the treatment does not breach the skin surface, there is no external healing required while the internal remodeling is taking place.
SKIN TIGHTENING AT BRYN MAWR DERMATOLOGY
You can expect your Ultherapy procedure to be comfortable and efficient. We understand that everyone tolerates the same treatment differently, and we are fully prepared to help moderate the momentary discomfort some feel with the Ultherapy session. We recommend onboarding a dose of ibuprofen in advance and have found that using a temporary anti-anxiety treatment called ProNox is very effective to remedy any apprehension about undergoing the treatment.
While some patients report momentary discomfort, this does not create a negative impression of the procedure and does not deter them from seeking the treatment again for a touch up after two to three years. Our skin care specialists apply the Ultherapy handpiece to the area of the face or neck to be treated, as discussed during your initial consultation with our team.
With the ultrasound technology, our physicians can see facial structures underneath the skin and customize your procedure to ensure the best possible results.
How do we use
Ultherapy is commonly used to tighten and tone skin in multiple areas of the face and neck, including:
Patients love seeing their results develop over the weeks following treatment. Best of all, no recovery or rest is needed to recuperate from Ultherapy. Patients may experience some redness, swelling, and bruising at the treatment site, but this does not deter them from going about their daily routines. As collagen builds in the tissue below the surface, patients notice a lifting and plumping effect. Drooping skin around the jaw, face, and neck is uplifted and looks more youthful than before.
