Now, let’s address the most pressing questions about Ultherapy

  1. What is Ultherapy, and how does it work?

Ultherapy is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that employs focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin. This process helps lift and tighten sagging or loose skin, ultimately reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

  1. Is Ultherapy safe?

Yes, Ultherapy is considered a safe procedure when performed by a qualified and experienced healthcare professional. It has received FDA clearance for lifting the skin on the face, neck, and décolletage.

  1. How long does an Ultherapy treatment session take?

The duration of an Ultherapy session varies based on the treatment area. Generally, a session for the face and neck takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes, while a session for the décolletage may take 15 to 45 minutes.

  1. Is there any downtime after the treatment?

Ultherapy offers minimal downtime. Most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately following the procedure. Some may experience mild redness, light bruising or swelling, but these effects are typically temporary and subside within a few hours to days.

  1. How many Ultherapy sessions do I need to see results?

While some people notice visible improvements after a single treatment, the number of sessions required can vary. Factors such as the degree of skin laxity and the treatment area influence this. In some cases, additional sessions may be recommended for optimal results.

  1. When will I start seeing the results?

Results from Ultherapy gradually develop over several months as new collagen forms and tightens the skin. Some patients observe improvement as early as four to six weeks, with full effects becoming apparent within three to six months.

  1. What does Ultherapy feel like?

The experience varies from person to person. Ultrasound energy is delivered deep into the skin, and sensations can include a warm feeling or occasional mild prickling. Healthcare providers can adjust settings to enhance comfort during the procedure.  We also offer nitrous oxide during the treatments to minimize your discomfort.  Nitrous oxide is safe, effective, and widely used in medicine – you will not need a driver after using nitrous for treatments in our facility.

  1. Are there any side effects or risks associated with Ultherapy?

Side effects are typically mild and temporary, including redness, swelling, tingling, bruising, or tenderness in the treated area. Serious complications are rare, but as with any medical procedure, potential risks are discussed with your healthcare provider beforehand.

  1. What conditions does Ultherapy treat?

Ultherapy is primarily used to treat mild to moderate skin laxity and aging concerns. Some of the conditions that Ultherapy can effectively address include:

  • Skin Sagging: Ultherapy is known for its ability to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, and décolletage. It can be particularly effective in reducing the appearance of jowls and tightening loose skin under the chin.
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The collagen-stimulating effects of Ultherapy can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving overall skin texture and tone.
  • Brow Droop: Ultherapy can lift the eyebrows and reduce brow droop, creating a more lifted and refreshed look around the eyes.
  • Nasolabial Folds: By promoting collagen production, Ultherapy can soften the deep creases that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
  • Jawline Definition: The treatment can enhance jawline definition and contour by tightening loose skin along the jaw.
  • Necklines and Décolletage Wrinkles: Ultherapy is effective in addressing wrinkles and lines on the neck and chest, often referred to as “necklace lines” or “crepey” décolletage skin.
  • Overall Skin Laxity: Whether it’s loose skin on the face, neck, or chest, Ultherapy can improve overall skin laxity, resulting in a firmer and more youthful appearance.
