Tighten Skin Using
Ultrasound Energy

Ultherapy is a cutting-edge cosmetic treatment that uses ultrasound energy to rejuvenate your skin without surgery. Delivering focused ultrasound energy to targeted areas stimulates collagen production deep within your skin. This process lifts and tightens areas prone to sagging, such as the face, neck, and chest, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Unlike traditional facelifts, Ultherapy offers a non-invasive solution with minimal downtime, making it an appealing option for those seeking natural-looking results without the risks associated with surgery.

Ultherapy Treats:

  • Sagging skin on the face
  • Loose skin on the neck
  • Fine lines and wrinkles on the chest
  • Drooping eyebrows
  • Lack of definition along the jawline
  • Overall skin laxity

How Does
Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound energy to penetrate deep into the skin’s foundational layers, targeting specific depths where collagen production occurs. This triggers a natural response, stimulating the production of fresh, new collagen. As collagen fibers regenerate and tighten, they lift and firm the skin from within, resulting in a noticeable improvement in texture and elasticity. The precision of ultrasound ensures that surrounding tissue remains unharmed. Over the following months, the gradual remodeling process yields smoother skin.

Ultherapy FAQs

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?

Good candidates for Ultherapy are individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity who are looking to lift and tighten areas such as the brows, neck, and chest. It is also suitable for those who wish to improve fine lines and wrinkles without surgery.

How long do the results of Ultherapy last?

The results of Ultherapy can last up to 2 years, although individual experiences may vary. Factors like skin type, lifestyle habits, and natural aging can influence the longevity of results. Some patients may choose to undergo maintenance treatments to prolong the effects.

Does Ultherapy hurt?

While everyone’s pain tolerance varies, Ultherapy is generally well-tolerated by most patients, but you may experience some discomfort, such as tingling or warmth, as the ultrasound energy is delivered to the skin.

Are there any side effects of Ultherapy?

Common side effects of Ultherapy may include temporary redness, swelling, tingling, or tenderness in the treated areas. These effects typically resolve on their own within a few days to a week after treatment. Serious side effects are rare but may include nerve injury or skin burns, which are extremely uncommon when the procedure is performed by a skilled provider.

Can Ultherapy be combined with other cosmetic treatments?

Yes, Ultherapy can be combined with other cosmetic treatments, such as injectables (e.g., Botox or dermal fillers) or laser skin resurfacing for enhanced results. Your provider can customize a treatment plan tailored to your specific goals.

How long does an Ultherapy treatment take?

The duration of an Ultherapy treatment depends on the areas being treated. Typically, a full-face and neck treatment can take 60 to 90 minutes, while targeted treatments may be shorter.

Is there any downtime after Ultherapy?

While some patients may experience mild redness or swelling immediately following treatment, there is typically no downtime required after Ultherapy. You can resume your normal activities right away.

When will I see the results from Ultherapy?

Results from Ultherapy are not immediate and become noticeable gradually over 2 to 3 months as collagen production increases, and the skin undergoes natural remodeling. Some patients may see initial improvements sooner, but optimal results are seen after several months.
