Ultherapy is a non-surgical face and neck treatment that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tone loose and sagging skin. This treatment is non-invasive and requires no downtime from patients looking to improve their appearance. When looking for a non-invasive cosmetic treatment to help tighten your skin, how do you know if Ultherapy is the right choice for your individual needs?
Getting Answers to Your Treatment Questions
The first step in beginning to research if Ultherapy is the right treatment option for you, is to collect answers to all of the questions you have prior to treatment.
The most common questions our patients have prior to Ultherapy treatments are:
Question: Is Ultherapy Painful?
Answer: The modern technology we use today makes Ultherapy very tolerable when it comes to how much pain is associated with the treatment. While a small percentage of patients may find the treatment uncomfortable, most find the procedure very tolerable.
Question: How Long Does Treatment Time Take?
Answer: A full face and neck treatment takes 60-90 minutes, and a partial face or brow lift treatment can take around 30 minutes.
Question: Is There Any Downtime?
Answer: Regardless of whether you have a full or partial treatment, there is no downtime required post-treatment as Ultherapy is entirely non-invasive.
Question: How Long Until I See Results?
Answer: Patients may enjoy some initial results but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months after treatment, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As the collagen building process continues, you will continue to see results up to 6 months after a procedure.
Question: Are There Any Side Effects?
Answer: You may experience slight redness for up to an hour following treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have minor swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but any potential side effects are mild and temporary.
Question: Is Ultherapy Safe?
Answer: The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 100,000 treatments have been safely performed worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the fiend in the medicine for more than 50 years.
