Ultherapy Q & A

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that is FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. It has been proven as safe and effective in clinical studies and in over half a million treatments worldwide.

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?

Since Ultherapy is a noninvasive procedure used to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the eyebrow, typical candidates will be those who have mild to moderate skin laxity and are looking for improvement and a more youthful look.

What problem areas does Ultherapy target?

Ultherapy uses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck, and chest to address mild to moderate loose or sagging skin. Some patients will see the initial results right after their treatment. Best results will appear over 2−3 months as new collagen develops and lifts to tighten the skin on the neck, chin, and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven noninvasive alternative for those not ready for surgery, and it can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

What is treatment like?

After cleansing the skin, an ultrasound gel will be placed on the specific areas to be treated. Next, your provider will use the Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to see deep within the layers of the skin to determine the best placement for the treatment energy. The ultrasound energy will be focused just beneath the skin’s surface. During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. After treatment, your skin might appear flushed and tender like a sunburn, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. With Ultherapy, there is no downtime, and you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure.
