Ultherapy Skin Tightening
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive, FDA-approved skin tightening procedure that lifts the neck, chin and brow, and reduces lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. This non-surgical treatment offers natural looking facelift results without surgery or extended downtime.
How does Ultherapy work?
Using micro-focused ultrasound thermal coagulation points (TCPS), Ultherapy stimulates targeted tissue at specific depths. This will stimulate your body to begin building new collagen and elastin.
Using ultrasound technology, enabling planning, customization and precise targeting of treatment areas. Each customized treatment plan includes determining the right amount of energy, at the right depth and right temperatures. This will stimulate your body to begin the process of building fresh new collagen and elastin, starting the day of your treatment, to provide skin tightening results.
What’s the difference between Ultherapy and laser treatments?
Ultherapy uses sound energy — tried-and-true ultrasound — which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over two to three months. Some lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers. Typically, laser treatments also only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-indicated to lift skin.
Is Ultherapy safe?
Ultherapy is a proven skin treatment with a well-established safety profile. It is currently marketed worldwide in more than 75 countries, with over 1.5 million treatments performed globally to date. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
What to Expect at Your Ultherapy Appointment
Does Ultherapy hurt?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered during Ultherapy, you may feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, stimulating the collagen-building process. Comfort levels vary from person to person; however you will have the luxury of being in the comfort of your own home. Your Skin Clique provider will review any additional comfort measures in your pre-procedure consultation.
Does Ultherapy require downtime?
There is little to no downtime following an Ultherapy procedure. After your treatment, you can resume your normal activities immediately, and there are no post-treatment measures to follow. You may experience some soreness and redness following the appointment.
What are the side effects of Ultherapy?
There may be slight redness that typically resolves within a few hours following your Ultherapy treatment. Some patients may experience swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. Visit a full list of potential side effects HERE.
When will I see results from Ultherapy?
Collagen is stimulated deep below the skin’s surface with Ultherapy treatment. The production of new collagen takes time, so results can become more apparent over two to three months, and even up to six months.
How long does Ultherapy last?
Since the procedure stimulates a person’s own collagen production, how long the results last depends on the individual! The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but the individual’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Future touch-up treatments can help provide more control over the aging process, which varies by individual.
Can Ultherapy be combined with other skincare treatments?
Yes! Your Skin Clique provider can combine your Ultherapy treatment with a skincare consultation, tox, dermal filler treatment all in the comfort of your own home.
