What Is Ultherapy®?
Known as an “uplift, not a facelift,” Ultherapy® slows the aging process by treating the same foundational layer addressed in surgery — without going under the knife. Ultherapy® stimulates collagen for a youthful effect, using an ultrasound technology that does not disturb the skin’s surface. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to sagging skin and the formation of wrinkles. Ultherapy® counteracts this by targeting the deep tissue layers beneath the skin, traditionally addressed in a surgical facelift, without making any incisions or disturbing the surface of the skin.
During the Ultherapy® treatment, an applicator is used to deliver focused ultrasound energy to specific areas of the face and neck. This energy heats the targeted tissue, triggering the body’s natural healing response and stimulating the production of new collagen. The treatment is typically completed in one session, lasting between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
Benefits of Ultherapy®
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive ultrasound therapy that does not require any incisions or needles. This means no scars, no anesthesia, and no lengthy recovery times. You can return to your daily activities immediately after the treatment.
The Ultherapy® treatment can be customized to address specific areas of concern. Whether you are looking to lift and tighten the skin on your entire face or focus on particular areas like the brow, neck, or under the chin, Ultherapy® can be tailored to meet your individual needs.
Because Ultherapy® stimulates your body’s own collagen production, the results are natural-looking and will gradually improve over time as the new collagen develops.
There is no downtime required after an Ultherapy® session. You can resume your regular activities immediately after the treatment.
The results of Ultherapy® can last up to a year or more, depending on your skin’s natural aging process and how well you take care of it.
Quick and Convenient
A typical Ultherapy® session lasts between 30 and 90 minutes, making it a quick and convenient option for those with busy schedules.
Frequently Asked Questions About Ultherapy®
Does it hurt?
When energy is applied there may be some discomfort.
How long do the results last?
Even a year after treatment, fresh young collagen is still present in Ultherapy® patients. To keep the aging process slow, periodic touch-up treatments are recommended.
What are the side effects?
After the treatment, you may experience some slight redness for a few hours. Slight swelling may occur, as well as tenderness to touch for a few weeks. Other post-procedural effects are less common and include bruising and small areas of numbness.
What is the difference between Ultherapy® and other cosmetic treatments?
By using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy® is the first and only nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that specifically targets the foundational layer of facial tissue that doctors address in surgery.
Is it safe?
For over five decades, medical imaging has been using ultrasound technology. Ultherapy® has been utilized worldwide in tens of thousands of sessions without showing any significant adverse events.
How many treatments do you need?
Only one treatment is sufficient for the majority of Ultherapy® patients.
For whom is Ultherapy® a good fit?
Typically, people in their 30s or older are the best fit for Ultherapy®. You can, however, benefit from this procedure even in your 20s to stay ahead of the game. This treatment is also great for people who have had surgery and wish to prolong the results of those other procedures.
Can you treat other anatomical regions besides the face?
As of now, the face, neck, and décolletage are the only areas to be treated with Ultherapy®.
What is the benefit of collagen?
A natural protein of the body, collagen firms and tones skin, making it more youthful and smooth. When a patient uses Ultherapy®, new and fresh collagen is created while existing collagen is strengthened.
Are men eligible for Ultherapy® as well?
Both men and women have received the benefits of Ultherapy® across the globe.
Since the FDA indication is specifically for a brow lift, is it off-label to treat the lower face and upper neck?
The FDA reviewed the full face and upper neck for the Ultherapy® treatment. Ninety percent of patients saw significant lifting of the brow, which is great for any non-surgical energy-based treatment. Both the face and neck showed results as well.
