Ultherapy® Treatment

IMG 0219

Using micro-focused ultrasound energy, Ultherapy® lifts and tightens skin on the face, neck and chest. An Ultherapy treatment works on the deep layers of tissue but bypasses the surface of the skin… So can you say “zero downtime”? By heating tissue with sound waves, a controlled injury is created which stimulates a cascade of events, resulting in increased collagen production and younger-looking skin. According to its manufacturer, Ulthera, Inc., Ultherapy treatment "is the only noninvasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the face, neck, chin and brow."

The Ultherapy Procedure

During Ultherapy treatment, the skin is cleansed, and ultrasound gel is applied to the target area. The Ultherapy handpiece (transducer)is placed on the skin, delivering micro-focused ultrasound as it moves over the target area. Mild discomfort may be experienced as the heat is delivered beneath the skin. Discomfort levels vary from patient to patient, and on the area being treated.

It takes 60 to 120 minutes to treat the entire face and neck; a partial face or brow treatment usually takes 30 minutes.

Ultherapy Treatment Results

Ultherapy is used on mild to moderately loose or sagging skin on the face, neck, chest and other areas. Results vary from patient to patient, and on the condition and quality of the skin being treated.

Treatment that "lifts" the brow reduces excess skin on the eyelids, making the eyes look more open. Treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin on the neck and under the chin eliminates or reduces a double chin or "turkey-gobbler."

Although some patients may see immediate improvement, results of Ultherapy treatment are usually apparent within 2 to 3 months, during which old collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. At 6 months, full benefits are attained. Most patients need only one treatment, but those with significant issues may require more. It is possible for results to last up to a year or more depending on lifestyle habits.

Ultherapy Treatment Side Effects

Side effects of Ultherapy treatment are usually minor and temporary, and limited to the treatment area. Side effects include:

  • Slight redness
  • Slight swelling
  • Tingling
  • Tenderness
  • Bruising

Ultherapy treatment is not a substitute for a surgical facelift, but is an excellent alternative for those not interested in or ready for surgery.
