Ultherapy is the latest in non-surgical, non-invasive procedure to uplift the face that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. The FDA-cleared device used in the procedure utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin. 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.
What are the benefits? Now there’s a way to stand firm in the face of gravity—on your terms. With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside. With Ultherapy, you can go about your day after a single, 30-60 minute in-office procedure. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time—much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).
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. 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, men and women 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.
