Ultherapy Q & A

What is Ultherapy®? 

Ultherapy® uses focused ultrasound energy to tighten the skin around your eyebrows, neck, chin, or even your décolletage area. It’s an FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It works below the surface of your skin to stimulate collagen production without damaging the surface.

The ultrasound energy targets the deeper layers of your skin to trigger your body’s natural healing process. As a result, you produce fresh new collagen in the treatment area and gain a more youthful appearance.

What can Ultherapy treat? 

At Medical Aesthetics & Laser, the team uses Ultherapy to treat early signs of aging, such as: 

  • Loss of elasticity and volume 
  • Fine lines and wrinkles 

Since Ultherapy is a nonsurgical procedure, it requires virtually no downtime and offers effective results without scarring. Ultherapy can also be combined with Botox® treatments and injectables like dermal fillers for results that last for years*

How is Ultherapy different from laser treatments?

Laser treatments use light energy, while Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy, like ultrasounds during pregnancies. It’s a safe treatment for treating skin laxity because it uses sound waves that don’t harm the surrounding tissue.

Ultherapy is also FDA-cleared to lift and tighten the skin around your neck, chin, and eyebrows from beneath the surface. Laser therapies typically treat only the superficial layers of your skin.

Laser energy and Ultherapy work in different ways to rejuvenate your skin and are sometimes used in combination with each other, depending on your desired outcome. Since Ultherapy focuses on the deeper layers of your skin, it jumpstarts your body’s natural collagen-building process, so you get noticeable results.

What can I expect with Ultherapy treatment?

Ultherapy treatment takes about 30-90 minutes, depending on the areas you’re having treated. When you arrive, the team applies a cool gel to the treatment area to minimize discomfort. Then, they use an ultrasound applicator to deliver energy to the treatment area. You may feel mild discomfort as the energy passes through the surface of your skin, but these sensations are usually well tolerated.

After your treatment, you can return to your normal activities. Your skin may appear slightly red right afterward, but this typically disappears within a few hours. 

When will I see results from Ultherapy?

You may see an immediate difference following Ultherapy treatment, but you might not see full results appear until 2-3* months. During this time, your skin creates new collagen that lifts and tightens the treated area. As your skin heals, you’ll notice significantly smoother, tighter skin.
