Skin rejuvenation has never been so easy with Ultherapy. It addresses wrinkles and skin laxity. We will elaborate on all of the ins and outs. 

What is It?

Ultherapy is an FDA-approved, non-invasive and non-surgical treatment that eradicates skin laxity, sagging, creases, and other signs of aging to reveal tighter, fresher, and more youthful skin. It is backed by tried and tested ultrasound technology.

How Does It Work?

Ultherapy leverages focused Ultrasound waves to treat the deeper layers of your skin. These ultrasound waves heat the skin tissues and tighten them without breaking the surface. This significantly improves collagen production and makes your skin firmer, tighter, younger-looking, and more beautiful.

Where Can It Be Used?

Ultherapy can treat numerous areas of your face, neck, and décolletage.

  • Face Lift
  • Treating Fine lines & Wrinkles across the décolletage areas
  • Brow Lift
  • Jowl Lifting & Tightening
  • Removing Dropping Eyelids
  • Replenishing the Skin Under the Eyes
  • Reducing the appearance of a turkey Neck
  • Treating Skin Laxity & Sagging Skin

What are the Benefits?

Ultherapy is one of the best collagen-booster known as the “Ultimate Gold Standard Treatment.” It offers various advantages and benefits, and a few of them are enumerated below.

  • It is an entirely non-surgical and non-invasive treatment
  • It regenerates the natural elastin and collagen stores.
  • It brings tightness and firmness to the texture of your skin.
  • It lifts the floppy and sagging skin that is a result of aging
  • It gives you a fresher, younger, and rejuvenated appearance
  • No anesthesia or numbing is required as the treatment is painless.
  • No downtime, injection, scissors, and recovery time is associated with it.

How is Treatment Done?

First, your face is cleansed using a mild cleanser, and an ultrasound gel is applied to the treated area. The device is then placed against your skin, and an ultrasound viewer is used to adjust the device to the proper settings. Then, the energy of ultrasound is delivered to the targeted areas. During this, you might get intermittent feelings of tingling during the treatment. Topical numbing cream is available to make you more comfortable during the procedure. This treatment takes up to 1 hour and 30 minutes, depending on the areas being treated.

When Will I See Results?

This depends on the goal and concern. Some patients observe a noticeable change in their skin tone and texture after the first treatment. However, if you have more laxity, it may take up to 6 months to achieve desirable results.  You will see skin improvement over time as new collagen builds up. 

How Long Does the Effect Last?

This depends on lifestyle, genetics, activities, and other attributes. However, on average, the results last a year minimum.

How Many Sessions are Required?

People get noticeable results after just 1-2 treatments. It is recommended to get it twice a year to maintain the results of rejuvenation and avoid the appearance of signs of aging.

Ultherapy Vs. Lasers

  • Ultherapy is the only therapy that targets the foundational layers of your skin. It penetrates 3.5 to 4.5mm below the surface. Hence the deepest layers of your skin get beautified and enhanced with Ultherapy. Conventional laser treatments, while effective, typically do not go as deep and focus on the surface and upper layers of the skin. Lasers focus on the rejuvenation of the surface of your skin, while this goes much deeper.

What are the Pre-Treatment Instructions?

  • Don’t consume any blood thinning medications and supplements. Refrain from using medicines that inhibit the blood clotting process. If you have a blood thin naturally, ask your physician to prescribe a medication to address this issue.
  • Avoid alcohol consumption and smoking for three days before the treatment
  • Avoid natural supplements such as Gingko, Garlic, Biloba, Vitamin E, and Omega 3 capsules.
  • When you come for the treatment, Don’t wear makeup, creams, gels & Lotions.
  • Avoid Cosmetic treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers, and Microneedling.
  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear medical-grade sunscreen for at least three weeks before the treatment.

What are the Post-Treatment Instructions?

  • It is normal to have mild swelling after the treatment, especially if you opted for local anesthesia. It is recommended that you sleep on several pillows for the first three nights to elevate your head if the face and neck were treated. 
  • You may face mild bruising, redness, swelling, and tenderness for a few days. After that, however, they will go away on their own. So you don’t need to take any certain measures for them.
  • If you get welts after the treatment, you should do icing on that area for 5-10 minutes.
  • If you experience bruising after the procedure, use oral and topical “Arnica.”
