Ultherapy: What You Need to Know
Struggling with sagging or loose skin? Ultherapy may be the treatment you’ve been looking for.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin-tightening technique that boosts collagen formation using ultrasonic energy. The procedure can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and give you a lifted and younger look.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin, and brow and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
During Ultherapy, deep layers of the skin get a targeted blast of ultrasound energy. The collagen fibers in the treated region constrict and tighten due to the energy delivered and this can aid in the restoration of tight, firm skin.
Most Ultherapy sessions run between 45 minutes and an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
The Benefits of Ultherapy
Ultherapy has several advantages over other skin tightening procedures, including the fact that there is no post-treatment downtime. The following day, patients can resume their routines and return to work.
Ultherapy also does not employ laser or radiofrequency radiation so you don’t have to worry about harming the skin. Additionally, because it’s a non-invasive procedure, you don’t have to worry about any downtime.
Risks of Ultherapy
There are very few risks or side effects that come with Ultherapy. You may notice some temporary redness and swelling at the treated area, but that’s about it. Other complications like unevenness or hyperpigmentation are very rare.
Due to the gradual production of collagen after Ultherapy treatment, you likely won’t see noticeable results until 2-3 months after treatment. The results tend to last for two years, but they can last longer if you take steps to further stimulate collagen production and keep your skin healthy.
Once the results start to fade, you should anticipate getting some touch-up or maintenance treatment to maintain a youthful appearance.
