Ultherapy Treatment Toronto

Recovery & Results

Your FACET Dermatology provider will provide you with detailed post procedure guidelines that will break down what to expect after your treatment and how to care for your skin afterwards. However, it may satisfy you to know that most patients experience little to no downtime after ultrasound therapy, and can quickly resume their normal activities after treatment. Keep in mind that you will not see the final results for up to six months. During this time, the effects of the treatment will be stimulating new collagen production to create firmer, tighter skin.

Common side effects include minor swelling and slight redness on the surface of the skin in your treatment areas (these will quickly resolve), as well as tenderness that may last for several weeks post treatment. More infrequently, some patients treated experience bruising or welting. It is always best to book aesthetic treatments on a Friday afternoon to allow yourself the full weekend to recover.

Please note that Ultherapy treatment can be quite painful for some; your provider will work with you to determine the best way to prevent unnecessary discomfort during your procedure. Some patients do best with prescription medication taken before the appointment, while others use laughing gas or numbing cream. If you are concerned about discomfort, talk to your Facet Dermatology provider during your consultation. They will be able to create a treatment plan that is fully tailored to your unique needs.

Ultherapy procedures are in the rare "one and done" category: Most patients don't need more than one treatment to see the desired results of ultrasound therapy, though it will take up to six months to see the final effects. You might also want to consider combining other cosmetic treatments with your Ultherapy procedure to achieve a more dramatic outcome.

Complementary procedures we offer at FACET Dermatology include other skin tightening treatments (such as Emsculpt Neo), resurfacing laser treatments, dermal fillers, and more. All of these procedures can help stimulate the production of fresh young collagen for a more radiant and rejuvenated appearance.

Though Ultherapy cannot delay the natural aging process, it can help slow its effects. Most patients find that the results of this ultrasound technology-based treatment last for up to two years. Future touch up treatments are recommended as the skin ages to maintain the results of your initial appointment.

To best preserve the health of your existing collagen and support your skin's natural repair process, it is critical to use high-quality skincare formulas at home. Skin creams and serums with efficacious active ingredients will help enhance the results of your Ulthera treatment while improving skin's tone and texture. At Facet Dermatology, we offer a variety of professional skincare formulas designed to maintain your skin's health and amplify the outcomes of any procedure we perform.
