Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound energy to give you a more youthful look by lifting and tightening the skin naturally. Unlike several other invasive cosmetic procedures that cut and disrupt the surface of the skin to accomplish the desired results, this is a completely non-invasive procedure. This means no surgery, no laser, no cutting of the skin, no pain and no downtime. Instead, it works using safe, non-invasive ultrasound energy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment.
A Look At How Ultherapy Works
Aptly known as ‘The Non-invasive Lift’, Ultherapy works by harnessing the power of ultrasound. This innovative technique delivers focused ultrasound energy to the desired areas, stimulating the production of collagen in these areas. The collagen that is produced works to plump out and tighten the skin around the eyes, neck, chin and jawline, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin. It can also be used to reduce acne scars, lift the brows and double chin and reduce wrinkles in the décolletage area.
What To Expect At Your Ultherapy Session
Before the treatment, the practitioner uses conventional ultrasound imaging to get a better look at the layers of tissue in the areas where the treatment is required. This ensures that the treatment energy will be delivered with precision at the right temperature and the right depth without cutting or disrupting the skin’s surface in any way.
The treatment itself is painless. The comfort levels may vary from one person to another, depending on the treatment required and your tolerance level. While the energy is being delivered, you may feel a slight tingling sensation. This only lasts for the duration of the treatment and indicates that the energy is being delivered and that the collagen-building process has begun.
The duration of the treatment also varies depending on the areas being treated. In general, a face and neck procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to 90 minutes. There is no downtime so you can even schedule an Ultherapy appointment during your lunch time. Your skin may appear flushed immediately after the procedure but it will calm down in a couple of hours. There is no need for any post-procedural care and neither are there any restrictions so you can go straight back to your everyday routine.
Slight tenderness, tingling or swelling are very rare after the procedure and when they do occur, they are mild and only temporary.
What To Expect After The Treatment
The full results may take about 2 to 3 months to appear as it takes that much time for the newly generated collagen to work on tightening and lifting the skin in the treated areas. Many individuals see the initial tightening and lifting effects immediately after their treatment.
Who Is A Candidate For Ultherapy?
Anyone who has moderate loose skin with visible sagginess can benefit from this non-invasive facelift procedure. The powerful yet safe technology of Ultherapy can be used to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest, resulting in tighter, younger, natural-looking skin.
