How Does Ultherapy® Work?

Have you ever looked into the mirror and then burst into singing Cher’s song, “If I could turn back time?!”  Seriously though, when did those forehead wrinkles show up? How did those crow’s feet sneak up on your eyes? How did your neck start looking saggy before you knew it was happening? Once you start to notice the signs of aging, it is hard to ignore them. But you are too young to consider jumping into a full traditional facelift. So let’s explore less invasive treatments to reduce the signs of aging. We’ll start with Ultherapy®!

What Is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin and naturally increase collagen production. It is the only non-invasive, FDA cleared procedure that lifts the skin on the neck, under the chin, on the eyebrow, and also improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles. 

How Does Ultherapy® Work?

Ultherapy® delivers focused ultrasound energy to the deep layers of the skin. It bypasses the skin’s surface to deliver energy at the optimal depths, temperature, and precision needed to initiate a natural healing response within the skin. This ultrasound energy causes the production of fresh, new collagen. New collagen then helps build a fresher, well-supported skin structure which will leave your skin looking younger, firmer, and smoother over time.

Patients will almost immediately notice that their skin feels tighter which improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because new collagen is being formed, patients will notice improvements in their skin for 3 to 6 months after the treatment as the new collagen builds and rejuvenates the skin.

What Is An Ultherapy® Treatment Like?

The typical treatment lasts anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the area being treated and the severity of your concerns in those areas.  The Ultherapy® device is placed on your skin and an ultrasound viewer will be used to adjust the device to the best settings for your treatment. The device is then passed over the skin of the area being treated. 

Some patients have reported feeling heat and tingling during the treatment. These sensations typically subside very soon after the treatment is completed. Most patients tolerate these sensations very well without pain relievers, but if the pain is a concern for you, your provider will be happy to discuss that with you during your consultation. 

You may have some redness or discomfort after your treatment, but these usually disappear within hours of the treatment. Because Ultherapy® is non-invasive and has no downtime at all, most patients are able to schedule their treatment and then immediately return to their daily schedules.
