Ultherapy is the first FDA-cleared, non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment. This non-invasive procedure promotes the production of collagen and elastin in the body. Before we go over all of the advantages of Ultherapy, it’s important to understand the technology and why this one-of-a-kind treatment might be perfect for you.
Collagen and elastin in our skin deteriorate as we age, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Sun exposure and environmental pollutants are two important aspects that we encounter on a daily basis. We don’t want to lose sight of the firmness and flexibility of our skin. For mild to moderate indications of aging, there is now a less invasive alternative to a facelift.
How Does Ultherapy Treatment Work?
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical, non-invasive skin lifting method that goes deeper than lasers and RF (radiofrequency therapy). Fine lines and wrinkles form when collagen in the superficial layers of the skin weakens, which is where RF lasers come in. Ultherapy, on the other hand, uses ultrasonic energy to reach the collagen-rich connective tissues deep within the body. We can see drooping and straining of the skin when the deeper tissues are weak. We can tighten and lift the skin overall by boosting collagen on a deeper level.
It’s vital to understand that the results aren’t immediate, and that skin renewal, like muscle building, takes time. It will take 3 to 6 months for the results to appear. Although minimal swelling or bruising may occur, this option is great for those who do not have the luxury of taking time off work for an extended length of time. After that, there is very little downtime with natural and gradual results.
The duration of a medspa Ultherapy session depends on the areas of treatment. A single treatment area takes approximately thirty minutes. Multiple areas such as the face and neck require up to ninety minutes.
The end result is a natural-looking appearance that improves over time. The anti-aging effects of Ultherapy focuses on the brow, neck, chin, and chest.
What to Expect During Ultherapy Treatment?
The best part about Ultherapy is that it is non-invasive meaning there is no downtime, no bruising, or swelling. On the day of your procedure, you will come to our office and consult with Alena prior to beginning to ensure all your questions are answered and your expectations are clear.
Once treatment beings the Ultherapy device is placed against the area we are aiming to treat and uses an ultrasound viewer to adjust the device to the appropriate settings. Ultrasound energy is then delivered to the targeted areas. This is completely painless though you may experience intermittent feelings of heat and tingling during your Ultherapy treatment.

Is Ultherapy Right for Me?
Ultherapy is used by patients of all ages to prevent early indications of aging and maintain skin suppleness. Most candidates begin in their mid 30’s to 40’s. When it comes to aging, prevention is paramount, and it’s crucial to get started as soon as possible. This non-invasive, non-surgical therapy will not replace the results of a facelift, but it is appropriate for people with mild laxity or even those who don’t want surgery who aren’t quite ready for a facelift.
