What is Ultherapy

What is Ultherapy?

Non-invasive aesthetic treatments are taking the beauty industry by storm. At the centre of these treatment options is Ultherapy. Ultherapy treatment is an innovative technique that uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the body's natural collagen production for tighter, younger-looking skin. Does this sound like something you're interested in? If so, keep reading for more information.

How long does Ultherapy last for?

In general, this non-invasive procedure provides outcomes that last for approximately 1 to 2 years. That said, it's important to note that individual factors, including the patient's age, current skin health, and the progression of aging within the body, can all affect how long these results last.

The full results of Ultherapy can go undetected for several months as the goal of this micro-focused ultrasound technique is to increase the body's own production of collagen, which is a gradual process that will slowly begin to lift and firm the skin as it progresses. As such, patients can anticipate noticeable improvements around 2 to 3 months. However, optimal results will take closer to 6 months once they've undergone their first treatment.


What is the downside of Ultherapy?

While Ultherapy has been approved by the FDA and is widely considered a safe and effective treatment option, some patients may experience temporary side effects following their treatment. These post-treatment side effects include redness of the skin, tenderness in and around the treated area, and slight swelling as well.

However, patients can expect these side effects to subside within hours and over the next couple of days post-treatment. On rare occasions, patients may experience bruising, burns, or scarring when the Ultherapy skin tightening procedure is performed by an unqualified individual, highlighting the importance of working with an experienced practitioner who understands what they are doing.

Furthermore, although Ultherapy is generally well-tolerated amongst patients, each discomfort level will vary. To reduce the likelihood of discomfort, a clinician can offer oral analgesia to reduce pain in the treatment area.  


What does Ultherapy do to your face?

Designed to treat sagging skin on the face and neck, Ultherapy utilizes concentrated ultrasound energy to stimulate natural collagen production within the deeper layers of the dermis to provide skin-tightening results that reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, taking years off your appearance. It offers a non-surgical alternative to conventional facelifts, delivering noticeable outcomes without the requirement for downtime or incisions.

Furthermore, the process is widely recognized for its accuracy, as it enables medical professionals to target particular tissue depths and provide individualized care based on the unique needs of each patient. Without requiring invasive surgery, the results are gradual and natural-looking, helping to give the appearance of being refreshed and revitalized without looking like you’ve had “work done.”

However, it’s important to note that just like with other cosmetic procedures, the likelihood of successful results increases considerably when you choose to work with a knowledgeable and competent practitioner. Seeking advice from a board-certified dermatologist can assist you in balancing the possible drawbacks with the anticipated advantages and deciding if Ultherapy is the best option for your particular needs. 


Does Ultherapy actually work?

Yes, Ultherapy is a well-favoured, non-invasive cosmetic treatment within the medical cosmetic community that has been proven effective in tightening and lifting the skin. The treatment itself is FDA-approved and generally safe for the majority of patients looking to improve their overall appearance.

Multiple clinical studies, as well as patient accounts, confirm Ultherapy's efficacy in treating moderate skin sagging, especially around the neck region, jawline, and eyebrows. While each patient may have a different outcome, many report noticeable changes in their skin's texture and tone within 6 months. Just keep in mind that results are natural; as such, they will not replicate the outcomes of surgical procedures.
