Patients come to us all the time and ask how they can regain a younger, glowing appearance. While there are many different options available, there’s nothing else quite like Ultherapy®. We’ll let you know everything you need to know about this treatment!
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive procedure used to combat the effects of aging on the neck, chest, chin, and brow areas. Wrinkles and lines are removed from the skin through the use of this ultrasound energy! Ultherapy® is also the only non-invasive lift procedure that is FDA-cleared.
How does it work?
By using the same ultrasound methods used in other medical areas, Ultherapy® works below the skin to promote collagen production. Because this procedure is non-invasive, there are no needles or anesthesia. Most procedures are finished within 30 to 90 minutes and require no recovery time, so you can fit an appointment into your schedule and get right back to it afterward.
While it is possible that you may notice immediate effects, most patients begin to notice the differences around two to three months after their first treatment.
Are there any symptoms?
Besides having the appearance of younger and firmer skin, some patients notice a slight redness in treated areas. However, this generally is gone within a few hours of the treatment.
Does Ultherapy® replace a facelift?
Ultherapy® does not replace or provide the exact same results as a facelift. However, Ultherapy® is suggested as an alternative for those who are not yet ready or willing to go under the knife.
While it may not be the solution that a facelift can offer, Ultherapy® is the right treatment for those patients who want to feel more comfortable in their skin without having to undergo an invasive procedure. With continued successes in trials and buzz building throughout the cosmetology world, Ultherapy® may be right for you.
