Understanding Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a safe, non-invasive treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, neck, face, under the chin, and also smooth lines and wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging and the only non-invasive FDA cleared treatment that will actually lift the skin.

How Does Utherapy Skin Tightening Work?

By using an advanced ultrasound imaging display, we are able to locate the bone and tissue under the patient’s skin to let us select the proper energy level to use. You may be able to feel these small energy bits being deposited to the right depths during the treatment, which indicates that the process to rebuild collagen has started. It will usually take between 60 to 90 minutes to go through a face and neck procedure, whereas chest skin tightening will last about 30 minutes.

What Makes Ultherapy 1.5MM Different?

Compared to the standard Ultherapy treatment, the 1.5MM version is intended to treat specific delicate areas of the face such as the eyes and lips including the improvement of the texture and tone of the skin. What makes this similar to the standard version is that it also uses ultrasound energy as a catalyst to produce collagen in the areas of the skin.

What You Can Expect After Your Treatment

There is zero downtime involved when you undergo Ultherapy. Once you’re done with the treatment, your texture may appear flushed, but this redness will eventually subside in a few hours. There might be a little swelling, bruising, tenderness or tingling felt by some patients but these side effects are simply temporary.

What to Expect Immediately After Your Ultherapy Treatment

Ultherapy requires zero downtime. Immediately after treatment you may appear flushed, but the redness should subside after a few hours. Some patients may experience slight bruising, swelling, tingling, or tenderness, but these side effects are temporary.

Less common post-procedural effects may include bruising or numbness on small areas of the skin.

Ultherapy Treatment Results

After going through the Ultherapy treatment, you will start to notice some initial effects right away. The best results will begin to show 2-3 months after the procedure and can potentially improve up until the 6th month.

Most of the patients will only require a single skin tightening treatment and results can last up to one and a half years. Those patients with more skin laxity may benefit more from additional treatments.

Undergoing repeat procedures will ensure long-lasting results and enhanced appearance.

Results of Ultherapy

After your Ultherapy treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the best results will be evident in 2-3 months but may continue to improve through the 6th month post treatment.

Most patients only need one treatment with results lasting 1 to 1.5 years. Patients who have a fair amount of skin laxity may benefit from an additional treatment. Repeat procedures produce long lasting results and will enhance your appearance.
