How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to treat aging skin on the face and neck. It works by using high-frequency sound waves to promote collagen production and tighten the underlying facial muscles. Over a period of around three to six months, this will tighten and lift your sagging skin, improve fine lines and wrinkles, and restore a more rejuvenated overall appearance.
An overview of Ultherapy treatments
Approximately 1 hour prior before your treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area along with a small amount of oral sedation. To begin your procedure, our Nurse Practitioner, Erin, will apply a special gel to lubricate your skin over the treatment area. She will then carefully pass the ultrasound wand over your skin to stimulate the cells and promote collagen growth deep beneath the surface. You can expect the entire treatment to last about 20 to 60 minutes depending on the amount of areas to be treated.
Because Ultherapy is a completely non-invasive treatment, you can expect no downtime and will be free to resume your normal daily routine immediately. In terms of side effects, most patients experience little to no discomfort other than when the treated areas are touched. There can also be a minor amount of swelling or redness that quickly subsides within a few days.
Is Ultherapy right for you?
As Nurse Practitioner Erin believes in truly personalized care, she will determine candidacy for Ultherapy treatments on an individual basis, following a thorough evaluation of the cosmetic imperfections you’d like to address.
Ultherapy is an ideal option for people who want to rejuvenate their aging skin, without undergoing a more invasive surgical procedure like a facelift or neck lift. During your initial consultation with us, we will provide you with more personalized advice on whether or not Ultherapy is in your best interest and can accomplish your precise cosmetic goals.
