Frequently Asked Questions About Ultherapy


If you aren’t familiar with Ultherapy and its benefits, let us introduce you. Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure used to lift and tighten skin in the neck area, face, and upper chest. This new anti-aging, skin rejuvenating treatment can slow down the effects of gravity and time by using ultrasound wave technology to target the deep below the dermal layers of skin. This helps kickstart your body to begin producing new and improved collagen, which keeps your skin’s elasticity. When we age, the collagen in our body begins to break down, leaving loose and sagging skin that is unsightly. However, you might not want to go under the needle and receive a complete face lift. So this non-invasive alternative is for you!

FAQs

How Does It Work?

Ultrasound energy is used to stimulate protein production deep within the dermal layers of your skin. These proteins (collagen and elastin), are responsible for your skin’s volume and elasticity. By stimulating the protein production process, it allows your body to naturally regenerate new collagen and elastin. Which means you are counteracting the aging process and the most visible signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, crows feet, uneven texture, loose or sagging skin, and can help reduce acne scarring. 

Is It Safe?

Ultrasound energy that is used in Ultherapy has been used in the medical field for over 50 years. It is most commonly used to see below the skin tissue in pregnancies and to look at organs. Now, ultrasound energy is believed to have added cosmetic benefits that help counteract the aging process without any risks to your skin or overall health. 

When Will I See Results?

The production of collagen is at its highest 1-3 months after your treatment, which is when you will see the most noticing results. However, patients have reported seeing results 1-3 days after their treatment. Each patient and their skin is different. Your body is doing the work to produce these new collagen and elastin proteins, so be patient as the results will come. 

How Long Do The Effects Last?

It really depends on your body’s ability to produce collagen. For most patients the results last around 3 months at a time, but for others, the effects can last anywhere from 2-6 months. How well you respond to treatment depends on your age and genetic predisposition. 3-4 treatment sessions a year are usually the recommended amount to keep the results you want. 

Can I Combine This Treatment? 

If you are interested in combining this treatment with other cosmetic procedures, talk to your doctor and they can help you create a custom treatment plan. The answer is yes, you can combine this treatment with other procedures including dermal fillers, chemical peels or facials, and more. Dermal fillers help to correct more intense skin imperfections such as deep wrinkles or hollow points in the face area. Chemical peels and facials can help correct your uneven skin tone, dark spots, or sun spots.
