What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy achieves a smoother, firmer complexion for the face, neck by using ultrasound waves. This treatment stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the foundational layer of the dermis. 

Unlike laser treatments, surgery, radiofrequency, and other skincare technologies, Ultherapy completely bypasses the surface of the skin. It delivers exactly the right amount of ultrasound energy, at precisely the right depth and temperature.

The heat generated in this process initiates the body’s healing response, which causes new collagen to form. The result is lifted tissue that produces firmer, tighter, younger-looking skin over time.

Before & After

What happens during an Ultherapy session?

The first step in the Ultherapy process is to schedule a consultation with us so that we can evaluate your skin, discuss your concerns, and determine if you’re a candidate. You will not need to follow any special regimen to prepare for treatment.

During the procedure, your skin will first be cleansed, and the specific treatment areas identified. An ultrasound gel will be applied in the area, and then the treatment will begin. 

A smooth, comfortable applicator will be placed on your skin. Using ultrasound imaging, your specialist will determine the best placement of the ultrasound energy, and will then deliver low levels of focused heat energy beneath the surface of the skin at exactly the right depth.

The surrounding skin will not be affected. Your body’s response to this ultrasound energy is to begin new collagen production. This means that the process of your skin’s tightening and firming begins here. You will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited under the skin, which means that new collagen production is being triggered. This sensation only lasts for the duration of the treatment.

The length of time needed for an Ultherapy session depends on your treatment plan. Typically, it takes 60-90 minutes for a face and neck procedure, and approximately 30 minutes to treat the décolletage. Most patients require a single Ultherapy treatment. However, depending on how much sagging skin you have, you may benefit from more than one treatment.

Recovery

Ultherapy is completely non-surgical and non-invasive, so you’ll be able to resume your normal day immediately after treatment — with no downtime, no restrictions, and no requirements. Your skin may be flushed after treatment, but this disappears in a matter of hours. You may experience slight swelling, tenderness, or tingling, but these effects are also temporary. Although this is less common, some patients experience temporary bruising or numbness in small areas after treatment.

Results

You may see some improvements immediately after your Ultherapy treatment, but the results continue to improve over the weeks and months ahead. Your appearance will continue to improve as your body naturally regenerates collagen to lift and tighten the skin. Results can last for as long as one year or more.

FAQ

How much does Ultherapy cost?

The cost of Ultherapy varies depending on the size and condition of the area being treated. As all of our treatments are customized to meet each patient’s needs individually, the exact cost will be discussed in your personal consultation.

Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?

Nothing will ever truly replace a surgical facelift; however, Ultherapy is a great alternative because it addresses the same foundational layers of tissue as a facelift.

Ultrasound energy has been used safely in the field of medicine for more than half a century. The procedure is FDA-approved and has also been safely used in more than half a million treatments worldwide.
