What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive ultrasound treatment that triggers collagen production in your skin to reverse the effects of aging and gravity. The treatments stimulate your body’s regenerative response to gradually and naturally tighten and lift the skin on your face, neck, and chest.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy delivers focused energy to your skin’s foundational layer without disturbing the surface of your skin. The energy triggers your body’s regenerative process, jumpstarting collagen production. As your body produces new collagen, your skin lifts and tightens, returning to a more taut and youthful appearance.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
If you’re in good health and have mild to moderate skin laxity, Ultherapy may be right for you. For example, Ultherapy can reduce the appearance of lowered eyebrow lines, loose or sagging skin around your chin and neck, and lines and wrinkles on your chest.
What should I expect during an Ultherapy session?
During your 60-90 minute Ultherapy session, you will relax on a treatment table. Your aesthetician will clean your skin and apply an ultrasound gel. Then, they will use an Ultherapy imaging tool to examine the inside of your skin and identify the optimal placement of the treatment energy.
After they calibrate the equipment for your skin, Ultherapy will begin to send ultrasound energy into your skin with a smooth treatment applicator. You may notice a tingling sensation during the treatment as the energy triggers your collagen production.
Ultherapy treatments require no recovery time, so you can return to your regular activities immediately. Your skin may appear flushed, like it does after exercise, but the pinkness will subside within a few hours.
You may notice results right away, but your results will continue to develop during the three months following your treatment as your body’s collagen stores are replenished. The results are more natural than a facelift and don’t require any downtime to recover.
You may only need one treatment for optimal results. Your aesthetician may recommend a series of treatments depending on the condition of your skin, your lifestyle, and your skin concerns. Furthermore, you may need an occasional touch-up treatment to maintain your appearance as your skin continues to age.
