Make an appointment today if you’d like to learn more about what Ultherapy can do for you.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy uses similar technology to the familiar ultrasound energy that is used in doctor’s offices around the world. However, this treatment is designed to lift, tone and tighten skin without requiring any downtime or any potentially risky surgery.
Many people refer to Ultherapy as a non-invasive face lift. That’s because the results rival those that are achieved through surgery. Nonetheless, having this treatment performed does not require “going under the knife.” This FDA-approved method for treating sags and wrinkles safely and effectively erases years from your appearance, and most people will never know that you had the treatment performed.
It might seem like you should dismiss Ultherapy as something that is too good to be true. However, this revolutionary therapy is performed thousands of times every year in clinics and doctor’s offices all over the world. People who have received the treatment often refer to it as being life changing. How will your life change after you undergo this non-invasive, non-surgical procedure?
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy uses much of the same technology that doctors have safely used for more than 50 years for diagnostic procedures. However, that ultrasound technology is now being used for quite a different purpose. Ultrasound waves are sent through the layers of the skin, stimulating the production of collagen. Ultrasound also gives the practitioner an opportunity to clearly see what’s happening beneath the surface of the skin. This makes it possible to deliver just the right amount of energy at just the right places to have the most beneficial effect.
Some patients notice a visible improvement in their appearance immediately after the procedure is completed. Nonetheless, the most impressive outcomes are still in the future. That’s because Ultherapy needs time to do its work. The ultrasound energy stimulates the production of collagen, which is steadily produced over the two to three months after the treatment. Accordingly, this means seeing gradual improvement. Imagine being able to wake up one morning and see that the signs of aging that used to bother you are now much less noticeable. It’s a result that is likely to make your day a lot brighter, and other people may start to notice the change in you. However, because the results are gradual, virtually no one will ever guess that you had this ultrasound therapy performed.
Is Ultherapy Right For Me?
While many people have referred to Ultherapy as being an alternative to a face lift, it’s important to note that this treatment cannot duplicate the results of a surgical procedure. However, many people who are not ready to take on the risks and expenses of surgery find that this non-invasive, wrinkle-smoothing procedure is exactly the right approach to fighting the effects of aging. Plus, Ultherapy is FDA approved and clinically tested, which means that it is a safe and successful treatment that works for a wide variety of people.
Just one treatment is all that is required to begin reversing the signs of aging. The journey begins with a one-on-one consultation with a board-certified practitioner. At the consultation, your provider will talk to you about the procedure and what kind of outcomes you can expect. Your consultation will also involve an assessment of the health and condition of your skin so the practitioner can make recommendations that suit your unique needs. If you decide that Ultherapy is right for you, a follow-up appointment will be made.
What Is The Treatment Like?
Having Ultherapy performed is easy. There’s no need to follow any special skin-care regimen in advance of the treatment. Occasionally, a provider will recommend a prescription to relax you before your appointment if you’re feeling nervous.
The treatment begins with cleansing of your skin and the identification of the areas to be treated. Ultrasound gel is then applied to the areas before the treatment applicator is introduced. The practitioner will take a few moments to look deep beneath the surface of your skin to determine where the treatment should be applied. Then, the focused ultrasound energy is pulsed through the appropriate spot.
Many patients describe a feeling of tiny bursts of energy beneath the surface of the skin during the procedure. Some people are more comfortable with the sensation than others, and it’s important to let your practitioner know if the process becomes too much for you. Having your face and neck treated may take as long as 60 to 90 minutes. A more concentrated area like the chest may only require half an hour.
Little time is required to have this treatment performed, and the required down time is even shorter. That’s because Ultherapy comes without any restrictions for activity after the procedure. In fact, most people simply return to their usual daily routine after undergoing this skin-tightening treatment. The only side effect that people tend to experience is a slight flushing. However, this usually goes away within just a few hours.
