What is Ultherapy?
Miracles do happen and ultherapy is one of them! It is a non-surgical version of a face lift, an FDA approved non-invasive ultrasound focused treatment that stimulates collagen production from the inside out. No needles, no injections, just natural ultrasound frequency used to lift, tone, firm and tighten your neck, chin, or brow without surgery or downtime.
What areas can Ultherapy treat?
Ultherapy is used primarily to tighten the skin around the eyes, cheeks, jawline, mouth, and neck. These are areas that typically have more wrinkles or begin to sag over time based on facial movements. The procedure is relatively quick, painless, and provides lasting results.
How many Ultherapy sessions do I need?
The full results of the procedure usually appear over three to six months’ time. Due to the natural aging process of your skin, it is recommended that you receive treatments every couple of years to maintain your desired effects.
How long do Ultherapy results last?
The production of new collagen takes time, so you may not see the full results of the procedure until about three to six months’ after treatment. Once the new collagen has formed, however, results often last for years. Every patient is different, though, and due to the natural aging process of your skin it is recommended that you receive treatments every couple of years to maintain your desired effects.
Are there any side effects from Ultherapy?
Though Ultherapy is a common procedure and is considered very safe, there are still potential side effects. These can include pain and swelling in the treated areas, and in rare cases also numbness or nerve damage. These side effects are rare and, in most cases, very short-lived.
Is Ultherapy painful?
Some patients have noted feeling slight discomfort when the ultrasound waves are delivered to their skin, so at our offices, we employ the use of a topical anesthetic to ensure that our patients have a pain free experience. You may experience some redness or tenderness immediately after the procedure, but that usually clears up within an hour or so.
