The non-invasive procedure immediately lifts and tightens facial skin and improves wrinkles and skins, leading to a natural-looking complexion.
Collagen Formation Stimulation
Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound to jump-start collagen production in deep layers of skin. It is able to target the right amount at the right depths, equivalent to those of surgery, resulting in an increase and the firmness of the skin and a reduction of lines and wrinkles.
Ultherapy is approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States of America and other 75 countries around the world. The procedure can lift multiple target areas including eyelids, eyebrows, chin, cheeks, and neck.
Ultherapy is another non-surgical procedure that does not result in swelling, bruising, or trauma. Immediately after the treatment, you can return to your normal activities. There are no moderate or severe side effects.
A 30-to-90-minute Procedure
The duration depends on the gel amounts and locations of treatment. However, no anesthesia is required during the treatment and there is no downtime when completed. 20-30% of the patients can immediately notice the difference in their skin and results will consistently improve over 1 to 3 months.
Long-lasting Results – Since Ultherapy stimulates collagen formation, thereby constantly rebuilding new collagen, the effects of a tight and more youthful appearance last for 6 months to 1 year, depending on the individual’s collagen production and natural aging process.
What to avoid
After the treatment, you should avoid laser treatment and prolonged sun exposure for 4-5 days. You should also wear sunscreen consistently.
You must refrain from smoking and drinking alcohol since these activities result in a depletion of collagen production.
If you experience redness or swelling at the treatment sites, you can gently apply a cold compress. These side effects will gradually resolve within a few days.
After the procedure, you are advised to cleanse the treated sites with a gentle cleanser.
Frequently Asked about Ultherapy
What is the best age to get Ultherapy?
The right to get Ultherapy is when you start seeing moderate or severe skin concerns including the appearance of wrinkles and lines, loose skin, or sagging skin. Commonly, these signals are experienced by people who are close to or already in their 30s. Therefore, Ultherapy is suitable for those who are in their late 20s or early 30s.
Can I have a Botox injection, Filler, or Laser Treatment right after/before Ultherapy?
Ultherapy does not interfere with Botox, filler, or laser treatment because the procedure involves a jumpstart to a body’s natural collagen production in deep layers of skin. Hence, Botox injections, filler, or laser treatment can also be done along with Ultherapy. However, it is best to consult medical professionals before the treatment for your own safety and benefits.
Are there any Ultherapy side effects?
The areas of treatment may exhibit redness, along with swelling and numbness in some cases, in a few hours after the procedure. They typically resolve within 2-3 days afterward.
Does Ultherapy hurt?
Ultherapy is a micro-focused ultrasound system by which sound waves are emitted and delivered into deep layers of skin. During the treatment, you may feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited. Some may feel discomfort or pain. However, topical numbing cream will be applied before the procedure so that you do not have to worry about any discomfort that may occur.
