Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a noninvasive skin tightening procedure. It uses high-focused, intense ultrasound energy to tighten and lift skin by gently heating the tissue and stimulating the body’s collagen-building process, with visible results from a single session.

It’s cleared by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for the brow and décolletage area (the neck, chin, and chest), but some doctors also use it off label, on other parts of the body with loose skin (such as the stomach and above the elbows or knees). Ultherapy is a noninvasive skin tightening procedure.

How Does Ultheraphy Work?

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure that targets the dermal layers with concentrated ultrasound energy that is precisely calibrated to encourage collagen regeneration. This heat energy emitted from the applicator applies a temperature-controlled method of stimulation, which affects three separate levels: muscle, skin and superficial lines and wrinkles. The effects should be noticeably firmer skin without sagging or wrinkling – giving you a revitalized appearance!

MORE ABOUT ULTHERAPY

Ultherapy, beloved by many celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, is the most powerful anti-aging non-surgical mini facelift so far in the market. It can slow down the natural aging process. The powerful ultrasound technology in this machine utilizes concentrated waves to create high heat deep in the dermis and can target the SMAS muscle. Ultherapy is different from radio-frequency (RF) or any laser tightening methods since ultrasound technology does not affect the outer layer of the skin. When Ultherapy heats up the different layers, it elicits the body’s natural healing response which then stimulates collagen and elastin production. Results are long-lasting as it creates mature new collagen. Our specialized Ultherapy practitioner will mark the face to avoid facial nerves and major vessels. The ultrasound handpiece then delivers specific pulses at specific depths depending on the treatment area. 

Who’s an Ideal Candidate for Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the perfect choice for those who want to reduce skin laxity or correct lines and wrinkles. It can also be used as a preventative measure against premature aging. For optimal results, it’s best if your skin isn’t overly sun-damaged or excessively loose. This treatment has become increasingly popular with people aged 30+ looking to maintain their youthful appearance through non-invasive means.

Preparing For The Procedure

To prepare for the procedure, you don’t have to make any drastic changes. Eating and drinking habits can remain the same, as well as exercise and work routines before and immediately after it.

To ensure a successful Ultherapy treatment, you should speak to your doctor or technician regarding any medications that may interfere. Additionally, it’s best to stay out of direct sunlight on the area being treated and layer sunscreen if needed.

Ultherapy Procedure

Before your treatment, it is essential to take off makeup or other skincare products from the targeted area. If instructed by your provider, apply a topical numbing cream or anti-inflammatory medication as well. Your doctor will clean and prep the targeted regions before applying a generous coat of ultrasound gel.

Depending on whether you’re doing a face-and-neck procedure, a chest treatment, or all of the above, one session can take 30 to 90 minutes. Your doctor moves a handheld device across your skin’s surface, to transmit the ultrasound energy to the deeper skin layers. This energy enters your skin at precisely the right depth to jump-start collagen production.

Is The Procedure Painful?

Ultherapy has been described as mildly uncomfortable by most patients, but usually not painful. Some patients experience a sensation of heat that comes with ultrasound energy.

Your comfort level will depend on your individual pain tolerance and the area being treated. In general, Ultherapy is well tolerated even in sensitive areas such as the neck and décolletage.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

  • Typically, there’s minimal downtime, though you may experience some slight redness, swelling, and (very rarely) bruising. You may also feel a bit sore or tingly in the treated areas for anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks afterwards. 
  • Noticeable results at 2-3 months
  • Final results at 3-6 months
  • Results last 1-2 years

Are There Any Side Effects?

The benefits of Utherapy can be seen right away, but the optimal results will appear gradually over a couple of months. As your collagen production increases and rejuvenates the treated area, you’ll experience smoother and firmer skin with fewer wrinkles.

Common side effects may include redness and slight swelling, which should dissipate on their own. Some patients may also experience temporary numbness or tingling, but these symptoms typically go away within a few days.

To reduce any discomfort and side effects, it is recommended to follow all post-treatment instructions provided by your doctor.

Who Should I Look For?

Cosmetic surgery or Ultherapy should be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon or a qualified medical professional. GlowUp Medispa is one of the leading experts in nonsurgical skin tightening procedures like Ultherapy treatment.
