Ultherapy offers a non-surgical, natural approach to noticeably lift and tighten the brow, jawline, neck and decolette. Ultherapy may also be used to tighten areas around the eyes, mouth, elbows, knees, and abdomen.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology, which enables your practitioner to visualize levels in the skin on a screen and send pulses of energy to the depth at which they need to target. This energy is in the form of low-level focused heat, which causes gradual tightening on the underlying support, beneath the skin.
What should I expect during my procedure?
Depending on the amount of areas being treated, your procedure can last from 30 minutes to a couple of hours. There can be some temporary discomfort as energy is being delivered, but this is a signal that collagen building and tightening is being initiated. Comfort levels vary from patient to patient, and medication is offered prior to your procedure to help decrease any discomfort you may have.
What is the downtime for Ultherapy?
As an alternative to surgery, one of the many great benefits of the Ultherapy procedure is no downtime. There may be very minimal swelling or slight bruising. Many patients are comfortable returning to work or other daily activities immediately post-procedure.
What results should I expect from my Ultherapy treatment?
You will only need one treatment of Ultherapy to initiate the regenerative process of tightening and collagen-building. Results are gradual, and the full effect of your treatment will build over 3 to 6 months.
