Do you wish that you could improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin? Have you tried creams, lotions, and other home remedies to make your skin look smoother and younger without any results? If you answered yes to these questions, you could benefit from a skin tightening procedure offered by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jessica Krant. Keep reading to learn more about Thermage and Ultherapy, the two non-invasive skin tightening procedures offered by Dr. Krant that are clinically proven to give you a smoother, sleeker, and younger look and feel.

Thermage

Thermage was the first non-invasive skin tightening treatment developed in the United States market. It is an FDA-approved and clinically-proven skin tightening procedure that harnesses energy from radiofrequency technology. The high energy delivered by the radiofrequency denatures collagen in the targeted area, resulting in subsequent collagen remodeling. The new collagen production will give your skin more support and firmness, thus resulting in a smoother, sleeker, and younger-looking version of yourself. The best part about Thermage is that you can see dramatic results after just one treatment session. A session typically can last between 45 and 90 minutes, depending on the location and size of the area to be treated, with little to no downtime afterwards.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive procedure to lift and tighten the look and feel of the skin in the eyebrow, neck, and under-chin areas. Ultherapy utilizes a technology called microfocused ultrasound (MFU). MFU works by focusing on your subcutaneous tissue (the layer of fat underneath your skin) and generating temperatures up to 60°C, which denatures the collagen within the dermis. Similar to Thermage, this stimulates new collagen production, giving your skin improved support and firmness. The result is a revitalized and more youthful appearance.

The length of your Ultherapy skin tightening procedure will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60 to 90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. There is no downtime after an Ultherapy treatment, which means you can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
