Ultherapy Q & A

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses trusted ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin. This unique approach allows your medical aesthetician to view the deep layers of skin while using an applicator to deliver sound energy where treatment is needed most.

How is Ultherapy different from laser treatment?

While lasers use light energy to treat flaws on the surface of the skin, Ultherapy sound energy passes through the surface to penetrate deeper than a laser does. The ultrasound stimulates your skin’s abilities to heal and renew in the deepest layers.

The ultrasound device delivers energy at the optimal temperature for skin growth and repair. It stimulates a naturally occurring process in your body to create new collagen, which lifts and renews the skin.

What areas of the body can Ultherapy treat?

Ultherapy is FDA-approved to lift the skin in these areas:

  • Eyebrows
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Underneath the chin
  • Décolletage

What can you expect from an Ultherapy treatment?

After cleaning the area, your medical aesthetician applies ultrasound gel and places the ultrasound wand against your skin. Your practitioner uses the imaging to look deep into the skin layers, and the device is adjusted to deliver energy to the exact location needed.

During the treatment, you may feel the energy as it penetrates deep into your skin. Afterward, you may experience some temporary redness, slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness, but these effects last only a few hours.

You might see immediate results from your treatment, but the ultimate result of smoother, younger-looking skin develops over a period of 2-3 months as your body creates new collagen. Clinical studies show that 67% of patients were satisfied or very satisfied with their results just 90 days after treatment.

The lasting effect of Ultherapy depends on your body’s natural aging process. Most patients need only one treatment, but you can receive additional treatments to keep up with your body’s aging, as needed.
