ULTHERAPY Q&A

Ultherapy is a non-invasive way to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery. With precise ultrasound energy, Ultherapy targets the deep structural layers of the skin without disrupting the skin’s surface. After treatment, the body’s tissue repair process stimulates the production of new collagen, creating a natural lifting effect.

General Questions

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

How does Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment “jumpstarts” a natural process, neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen to counteract the effects of time and gravity on your skin.
While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s an exciting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery.

Unlike other energy devices, non-surgical Ultherapy delivers a precise amount of ultrasound energy at optimal depths and temperature – without cutting or disrupting the skin´s surface. The energy is precisely spaced to promote healing. The collagen produced after an Ultherapy treatment is completely your own; no foreign substances are left behind. The result is a natural lift without significant downtime!

How does Ultherapy Differ from Laser Treatments?

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months. Lasers rely on light energy, which typically only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin. Lasers also work through the surface of the skin, often resulting in downtime after a procedure. Ultherapy’s ultrasound energy bypasses the surface of the skin, which means no downtime is required after the treatment. Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they can be compatible.

What is the downtime after Ultherapy treatment?

The Ultherapy treatment is a non-invasive procedure that delivers collagen-boosting energy in a single treatment without downtime. During the treatment, you will feel the energy being delivered in the deep layers of your skin. Some patients see results immediately after their treatment, but the full results appear over 2−3 months, or even up to 6 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin.

Am I a candidate for Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a great alternative for people who crave tighter skin and refreshed looks, but are not ready for surgery yet, or for those looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery. A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to look less firm or tight. Examples include a lowered brow, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest.
