Ultherapy™ is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face, neck and décolleté that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten lax skin. Unlike invasive surgical procedures, you will be able to return to normal daily activities immediately.
Ultherapy™ is performed as an in-office procedure and takes between 30 and 60 minutes depending on the areas we treat. Mild swelling, tenderness, tingling, numbness, and bruising may occur. Some of the immediate benefits include a slight lifting and toning, along with a tighter, firmer feeling in the skin. Results will unfold gradually over the course of 3-6 months as the body creates new collagen. It is common to experience temporary discomfort during the procedure and patients may choose oral medications such as Ibuprofen or a prescription strength sedative.
All patients who are prescribed medication will need to take them 1 hour prior to the treatment and arrange for a driver to take them home.
What is Ulthera/Ultherapy?
- Ulthera is a nonsurgical, no downtime, in-office procedure for lifting and toning sagging skin of the lower face, jawline, and brows.
- Ultrasound technology is focused below the skin surface to firm and lift droopy tissues.
- Results are long lasting and occur gradually but dramatically over time.
How does Ultherapy work?
- Ulthera utilizes ultrasound energy to penetrate deep below the skin and fat layer of the face to gently but effectively target connective tissue.
- Connective tissue is a firm, tough layer that supports the neck and facial contours.
- Aging and the passage of time cause connective tissues to droop. Ultherapy tightens loose connective tissue, creating firmness and lifting to areas of sagging skin.
- The layer of tissue targeted by Ulthera is the same tissue that plastic surgeon’s tighten and shift during a surgical facelift or brow lift.
How does Ultherapy compare to a surgical facelift?
- Ulthera targets the same deep layer of tissue that is redraped and tightened during a facelift procedure.
- Although results from Ulthera may not be as dramatic as a surgical treatment, Ulthera provides significant lifting to sagging jowls, jawlines, and brows.
- It is ideal for patients looking for results but not ready for a facelift or brow lift. Unlike surgery, there is NO downtime following Ulthera and the procedure itself is comfortable and safe.
What is the Ulthera procedure like?
- Depending on the area of treatment, Ulthera takes approximately 30 minutes to just over an hour to perform.
- Our Medical Director, Pamela Blair, will determine whether or not you may need a prescription for pain.
What areas of the face or body are treated with Ulthera?
- Ulthera is FDA-cleared for skin toning and firming around the eyes and lower face and neck.
- It is helpful in addressing brow droopiness and upper eyelid hooding. Ulthera lifts the jawline and improves jowling and neck sagging.
- Published medical reports have also used Ulthera to address sagging skin of the knees, aging changes and sagging of the chest and décolletage area, and sagging skin on the upper arms.
How long until I see results from Ulthera and how long does it last?
- Skin tightening following Ulthera takes approximately three to six months to occur.
- Immediate skin toning is often visible immediately following treatment. A single treatment may yield significant results.
- Ultherapy results last at least 1-2 years, and often for longer period of times. Patients with significant skin sagging may consider a series of multiple treatments spaced at 6 month to yearly intervals to increase the effect of tissue tightening from Ulthera.
Who is a good candidate for Ulthera?
- Patients with relatively good skin elasticity or “spring back” respond more readily to treatment.
- Younger patients may have more dramatic responses.
- The ideal candidate is a patient with good skin elasticity in their 40s to 50s with mild to moderate skin sagging of the neck or eye area.
- Patients outside this age group or with more compromised skin quality may still benefit from Ulthera treatment. These patients often require multiple treatments and should expect more conservative outcomes.
What are the possible side effects of Ulthera?
- Adverse effects from Ulthera are few and often avoided with proper treatment.
- Mild redness or a hive-like reaction is possible but rare.
- Bruising is possible but unlikely.
- Tenderness in the area of treatment is typical for up to 2 weeks following treatment but is mild and temporary in nature.
- Numbness in the area of treatment is possible but unlikely with proper technique.
Can I combine Ulthera with other procedures?
- Yes. Skin tightening and “re-draping” performed by Ulthera is just one foundation of facial rejuvenation.
- Combining other procedures to relax overactive facial muscles, revolumize sunken cheeks, temples, and around the mouth, and resurfacing sun-damaged skin create a more dramatic but natural looking ultimate result.
- For example, Botox can be used to further lift a drooping brow treated by Ulthera. Facial revolumization or a liquid facelift can be performed with Juvederm preceding or following Ultherapy.
