How Can Ultherapy® Treatments Tighten Sagging Jowls?

By: Dr. David Alonso


Have you ever seen your reflection in the mirror and realized that a much older version of yourself was staring back? It's normal to experience signs of aging around our face and neck as we age, but it can be quite distressing. Amour Medical Aesthetics is proud to offer state-of-the-art skin tightening solutions like Ultherapy when injections or invasive surgical procedures are not an option.

Dr. David Alonso has seen tremendous success with FDA-approved Ultherapy for wrinkles and sagging jowls. This innovative procedure uses ultrasound technology to firm up the skin and help restore your youthful appearance. Learn more about Ultherapy treatment by scheduling a consultation in Chico, CA – patients are thrilled with their results.

Why Ultherapy?

Collagen is the protein responsible for keeping our skin tight and firm. However, factors like age and sun damage can stop collagen production, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin around the mid-face and jawline. Sagging jowls are difficult to hide under makeup and clothing, causing many people to feel self-conscious.

Ultherapy is a breakthrough treatment that harnesses the power of ultrasound energy to target the deepest layers of tissue – areas where collagen production has slowed down. Ultrasound technology has been used for decades in medical settings, and it has become a popular cosmetic solution because of its safety and effectiveness.

Once treatment is complete, telltale signs of aging in the eyebrows, neck, and décolletage areas seemingly disappear.

How Ultherapy treatment revitalizes your skin

Dr. Alonso begins Ultherapy by discussing your goals for skin tightening and determining which areas could use the most help. A handheld device delivers ultrasound energy to the skin at a specific temperature, which triggers collagen remodeling and production. The process is remarkably comfortable and can be completed in about an hour.

Most patients in Chico, CA are happy to hear that Ultherapy is noninvasive and no downtime is involved, Results are seen within 2 – 3 months as the skin tightens and jowls become less pronounced.

Ultherapy: no injections or surgery needed

Some people use neurotoxin injections to help keep their faces looking young, but this isn't always an ideal solution. Injections aren't permanent fixes, and they require frequent maintenance. In addition, procedures like facelift surgery require incisions around the face and neck, as well as a lengthy recovery period. With Ultherapy treatment, you can get the same results without any of the downtime or risks.

Ideal candidates for Ultherapy

Ultherapy is an excellent choice for patients looking to reduce wrinkles and sagging jowls, but not everyone is suitable for this procedure. Inform Dr. Alonso of any medications you’re taking, as well as any relevant medical conditions, before discussing Ultherapy.

People with lesions, open wounds, or active skin infections in the treatment areas may need to wait until these conditions have resolved. There's no need to worry – we'll work together to determine if this solution is right for your needs at this time.
