Can Ultherapy® Help Tighten Loose Chest Skin?

Featured Image

If you're like many people, you may notice that your neck and chest seem to be aging at a faster rate than other areas. In many cases, this is due to long-term exposure to the sun and other elements, and — oftentimes — people neglect to apply sunscreen, moisturizer, and other products to their neck and chest in the same way they protect their faces. At Dermatology Center of Dallas, our experienced team is dedicated to helping patients look and feel their best with a comprehensive suite of nonsurgical treatments and solutions designed to address a variety of cosmetic concerns, including loose skin, wrinkles, and lines on the chest, neck, and elsewhere. For wrinkled chest skin specifically, Ultherapy is a popular and exciting option that promotes natural skin tightening beneath the surface for beautiful, lasting results in as few as one session.

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy is a nonsurgical, noninvasive skin tightening treatment that utilizes targeted ultrasound energy to tighten loose skin, smooth away lines and wrinkles, and stimulate collagen production beneath the skin's surface for results that continue to improve over time. The treatment itself takes about 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of treatment areas. A topical numbing cream can be applied to keep you comfortable throughout treatment, and you should be able to resume your usual daily activities after your Ultherapy session. Some mild redness, swelling, and irritation are expected after treatment, but these side effects of Ultherapy should resolve quickly on their own. About six weeks after Ultherapy, patients should begin noticing their skin looking smoother and firmer, with the full effects of treatment becoming apparent after about 3 – 6 months. In some cases, a repeat treatment may be recommended around the one-year mark to maintain results.

Can Ultherapy be used for chest wrinkles?

Yes. In fact, the chest is one of the most common treatment areas for Ultherapy, as many patients begin to notice lines, banding, and wrinkles on their chest earlier or more noticeably than in other areas. When the chest is smoothed with Ultherapy, many patients feel more comfortable and confident wearing their preferred styles of clothing, including t-shirts and blouses that expose the neck and chest. Generally speaking, popular treatment areas for Ultherapy nonsurgical skin tightening include:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Décolletage

Is my skin too wrinkled for Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is generally considered most effective for mild to moderate skin laxity on the face, neck, chest, and décolletage areas. For patients with more pronounced laxity, including deeper lines and wrinkles, a series of Ultherapy sessions may be required to achieve the desired level of improvement, and it is important to keep in mind that advanced skin laxity may not respond to Ultherapy in the expected way.
