Non-Surgical Facelift with Ultherapy FAQ

Achieve a non-surgical facelift with Ultherapy at Glamor Medical in Boca Raton.

What is Ultherapy

Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow, as well as reducing lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Known as the non-surgical facelift, Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten loose skin, only improving over time. 

Ultherapy stimulates the production of our own collagen by elevating tissue and reaching deeper into the skin. Ultrasound imaging helps your practitioner to look under the skin’s surface into the layers of tissue being treated, rather than treating blindly. This helps identify the collagen-rich layers of the face that will respond best to treatment. In turn, allowing for a customized treatment plan tailored to your skin’s needs. 

Is Ultherapy Safe

Ultherapy is a well-established treatment with a solid safety record and is available in more than 75 countries. Furthermore, ultrasonic energy has a long track record in medicine, having been used for more than 50 years. Ultherapy is also safe to pair with other treatments, as well as used as a stand-alone procedure.

What Does Collagen Do, and How Does Ultherapy Help

Collagen is a natural protein that helps give our skin a youthful, firm, and toned appearance. Collagen growth slows with age, resulting in a loss of skin strength and elasticity. There is no cure for collagen loss, however, there are techniques that can help restore lost collagen, like Ultherapy.

Ultherapy creates a thermal affect under the skin by using microfocused ultrasound. The heat impact essentially kick-starts your body’s natural collagen production process.

What Sets Ultherapy Above its Competitors

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive cosmetic technique that stimulates the synthesis of new collagen deep beneath the skin’s surface using ultrasound technology. Because the synthesis of new collagen takes time, results can take two to three months to appear. There is no downtime following the treatment, which takes 30 to 90 minutes depending on the treatment area. 

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive method that employs ultrasound imaging, which enables practitioners to view the layers of tissue targeted during treatment. Thus, delivering precise energy where it is most effective.

Can Ultherapy Replace a Facelift

Although Ultherapy helps lift and tighten the skin, it does not match the complete results of a surgical facelift. On the other hand, Ultherapy is a fantastic alternative for people who aren’t ready for the commitment of surgery.

How Long Does Treatment Last

Although results take up to 2-3 months to appear, they are able to last between 1-2 years depending on the person. The treatment generates new collagen on the inside which takes time to show on the exterior depending on the individual’s natural aging process. Touch-up treatments will help provide more control over the aging process and the longevity of results. 

Are There Side Effects

The only known side effects following Ultherapy are slight redness, swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch. However, these effects are mild and temporary in nature and subside a few hours after treatment. 

Will I Need Recovery Time

With Ultherapy, there is no downtime needed after treatment. Following your procedure, you are able to resume normal activities without any post-treatment actions. 

How Many Treatments Do You Need

The majority of patients only require one treatment. However, depending on how much skin laxity they have and their body’s biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process, some people may require many treatments. Ultherapy treatments per year could help you keep your results.
