What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses advanced ultrasound technology to tighten and lift the skin on the face and neck. By targeting concentrated ultrasound energy to the treatment area, ultherapy stimulates the body’s own collagen to grow and strengthen, resulting in tighter and smoother skin.

Ultherapy can be used to address a number of cosmetic concerns, including:

  • mild to moderate skin laxity
  • lowered eyebrow line
  • loose skin on the neck
  • sagging under the chin
  • lines and/or wrinkles on the chest

Am I a Good Candidate For Ultherapy?

This treatment is safe for all skin types but the best candidates who will reap the greatest benefits are those who are in their late 30s to early 40s, and who show early signs of skin laxity.


How is Ultherapy Performed?

During this procedure, a smooth ultrasound probe is applied to the skin to deliver low levels of focused heat to target muscles and tissue deep beneath the skin’s surface.

You should be aware: This treatment may cause a mild, warm tightening sensation which most patients find very tolerable. Your surgeon may recommend a topical anaesthesia to combat any discomfort.


How Long Does It Take?

The time required for this procedure varies from patient to patient. It can take anywhere from 30 minutes - 1 hour depending on the size and location of the treatment area.


What Are the Side Effects of Ultherapy?

One of the greatest benefits of ultherapy is that there is no residual pain after the treatment and it requires no downtime. However, you may experience some mild redness or swelling that will last for up to 3 hours after your treatment.


When Will I Be Able to See The Results of My Ultherapy Treatment?

While you may see slightly tighter and firmer skin immediately, the building of new collagen happens over the course of 2-3 months following your treatment. After this period, you’ll be rewarded with tightened and toned skin around the eyes, brown, and jawline.


What is the Difference Between Ultherapy and Other Laser Therapies?

The main difference between Ultherapy and other laser therapies is that it penetrates much deeper than traditional laser treatments. While traditional laser technologies focus on the surface of the skin, Ultherapy goes much deeper.

Why does this matter? Because the skin is tightened from the bottom up, it ensures that even the deepest structures of the skin are enhanced and beautified. Ultherapy uses ultrasonic energy to target the collagen production beneath the surface.

No Downtime After Ultherapy

Because laser therapy targets the skin’s surface, the immediate impact is much more apparent and long-lasting. You’ll need at least 1-2 weeks of social downtime before your skin returns to normal.

That isn’t the case with Ultherapy. Ultherapy targets the structures of the skin that aren’t visible which requires absolutely no downtime. Patients can typically go for an Ultherapy procedure during their lunch hour and then return immediately to work, making it more convenient to fit into your schedule.
