Ultherapy Q & A
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy is a unique technique that relies on ultrasound technology to tighten your skin, avoiding invasive approaches like traditional face-lifts, which carry some risk and significant downtime.
As you age, there are several forces at play that lead to sagging and wrinkled skin:
Your collagen is responsible for the firmness and tone of your skin. As you age, your collagen production naturally slows, robbing your skin of the underlying base that held it firmly in place.
Your face and chest are arguably two of the most exposed areas on your skin and, as a result, these areas are subjected to more sun exposure. The sun’s UV rays prematurely age skin by breaking down skin cells and, with decreased collagen, your skin begins to lose tone and form fine lines and wrinkles.
The coup de grace in aging skin is the unstoppable force of gravity. As your collagen and elastin diminish, gravity takes over and your skin and fat begin to sag.
With Ultherapy, your aesthetician uses ultrasound therapy to penetrate the layers of your skin to create a mild healing response, which includes a boost in collagen production.
Where does Ultherapy work?
The FDA has cleared Ultherapy to tackle the skin on your:
- Submental area below your chin
- Chest, or décolletage area
With Ultherapy, your aesthetician can address the same areas that more invasive therapies, such as a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) or a neck lift can tackle, without the need for surgery. While the results may not be as dramatic as a face-lift procedure, Ultherapy offers a great alternative for anyone who doesn’t want the downtime and risk associated with more traditional surgical techniques.
How many Ultherapy treatments do I need?
In most cases, one treatment is needed with maintenance every 2-3 years. During your initial consultation, your aesthetician reviews the areas you want to treat and comes up with a plan for addressing all of them in one session. Most sessions take 60-90 minutes.
When will I see results of my Ultherapy treatment?
Since Ultherapy taps your body’s own natural resources, you have to wait while your skin sets to work regenerating collagen and elastin. Over the course of three to six months, you will see gradual improvements.
