Ultherapy is often referred to as a ‘non-surgical facelift,’ because it effectively addresses signs of aging. Ultherapy is a completely non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound technology to tighten and lift sagging skin on the face and neck.
What happens during Ultherapy?
Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound energy to target the deep structural support layers of the skin. This is the area that is typically manipulated during a surgical facelift.
During Ultherapy, the ultrasound energy is deposited in just the right areas, because the treatment uses ultrasound imaging to view the tissue layers being treated. The ultrasound energy stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen, and the increased collagen stores help to tighten and lift the skin over time.
What areas does Ultherapy target?
Ultherapy addresses mild to moderate sagging skin on the face, neck, and décolletage. It will lift the brows, midface, jawline, and neck, and give the face a more youthful, refreshed appearance (learn more).
When will I see results after Ultherapy?
Results can be seen about 2-3 months after treatment.
How long do Ultherapy results last
Patients that undergo ultherapy typically notice improvements for up to 9 months after treatment, as the collagen-building process occurs over several months. However, the aging process will continue, so additional treatments will be required to maintain the rejuvenating results. Ultherapy is often combined with other non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers or botox.
How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?
Most patients only need one Ultherapy treatments to achieve the desired results.
