Ultherapy® Q & A

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a nonsurgical treatment that uses innovative ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin around the face, chin, neck, and eyebrows. Not only does Ultherapy lift saggy skin, it also smooths wrinkles and reduces the appearance of fine lines for a natural, polished finish.

Why should I use Ultherapy?

Unlike any other cosmetic procedure, Ultherapy is just as noninvasive and gentle as it is effective. It is currently the only noninvasive treatment cleared by the FDA that actually lifts skin for noticeable, instant results.

What makes Ultherapy unique is that it uses ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment.

This state-of-the-art ultrasound imaging lets doctors see exactly where in the skin energy needs to be directed for the best results.

How long does Ultherapy take?

Depending on where you want to target, a single Ultherapy treatment can take anywhere between 60 and 90 minutes, though a quick chest session may only take 30 minutes.

The best part? There is no downtime. Once you walk out the door, you’re free to resume your day-to-day activities.

How long do the results last?

Over the course of 2 to 3 months, your body will gradually begin regenerating collagen. Because Ultherapy naturally stimulates your own collagen production, the results will depend on your own aging process.

With that said, many patients do see noticeable changes in the appearance of their skin immediately after their first session.

What are the side effects?

Because Ultherapy is noninvasive and gentle, there are very few serious side effects associated with the treatment.

Most patients will notice some redness on the skin immediately after the procedure, but it should disappear after a few hours.

Some patients have reported swelling, tenderness, bruising, or tingling, but those side effects are generally temporary.

Will I need to come back?

Overall, most women really only need one Ultherapy treatment to stimulate their natural collagen production for younger looking skin.

Depending on the degree of your skin laxity, however, you may want to return for additional Ultherapy treatments, even just for a touch-up.
