A global, comprehensive approach is key to achieving desired outcomes.

Skin Tightening

OUR APPROACH TO SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENTS

At Arbutus Laser, we have been at the forefront of skin tightening procedures since they were first introduced. We have an array of devices that will help lift and tighten skin on various areas of the face and body and it is our job to help you determine if one of them is right for you.

Ultherapy® was first introduced in 2009. It is a non-invasive, ultrasound technology procedure which is primarily used to lift the brows and jowls and tighten skin on the cheeks, chin, and upper neck. We have also found it to be effective in tightening skin on the body including areas like the upper chest, abdomen and knees. The procedure is suitable for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity, seeking a more youthful appearance without the risks and recovery associated with surgical interventions.

When you choose Arbutus Laser for your skin tightening treatments, you can trust that you are in the hands of experienced professionals dedicated to helping you achieve your desired goals.

WHAT is ULTHERAPY®?

Ultherapy® is a non-invasive and FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that utilizes highly focused ultrasound technology to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate the skin.

During the session, focused ultrasound energy is delivered deep into the skin’s foundational layers, targeting specific areas that need lifting and tightening. This energy stimulates the production of collagen, a crucial protein that helps maintain skin structure and elasticity.

The gradual increase in collagen production over time leads to firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.

One of the significant advantages of Ultherapy® is its precision in targeting specific tissue depths without affecting the surrounding skin. This allows for controlled and targeted lifting, ensuring natural-looking results.
