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.
- 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. The other post-procedural effects are less common: bruising, 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, and 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. 90% 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.
