Have you heard all of the buzz about Ultherapy? It’s definitely worth talking about and this is what you need to know:
What is Ultherapy? Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures? Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes only about an hour for most patients, and there is no downtime. It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
Does it hurt? While comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, most patients report that the procedure is quite tolerable. If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This sensation is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Timeless takes measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible and patients tell us they leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.
How long does it last? Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
Are there any side effects? There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Who does the procedure? Allyson, PA-C and Emilia, RN are both equally trained on this procedure, and each have had multiple training sessions held individually. Our providers deliver the best possible care and treatment.
