Myths and Truths About Ultherapy Skin Tightening Treatments

Posted by March 15th, 2019 in News

  • Myth 1: Ultherapy skin tighteningtreatments are painful. While some patients have reported experiencing some pain or discomfort when undergoing treatment, it simply means that the energy is currently being deposited in the depths of the skin tissue and that the collagen-building process has begun. More importantly, at Rejuvé, Dr. Tang’s specialization in pain management allows him to make Ultherapy skin tightening treatments as comfortable as possible for patients. Dr. Tang does apply a strong topical anesthetic before the treatment and also provides ProNox, a system that delivers laughing gas like the dentists use. This provides comfort by alterating the perception of the discomfort while the treatment is performed. The benefit is this effect is quite temporary allowing patients to drive home by themselves.
  • Myth 2: Results are not permanent and patients need to undergo several treatments. With Ultherapy skin tightening treatments, the results are gradual and natural-looking. This makes the procedure one of the best options to try if you want to be discreet about undergoing skin tightening treatments. Patients can expect noticeable changes as early as two weeks after treatment, and the full benefits of Ultherapy after 90 to 120 days. The number of treatments each patient will undergo will depend on the individual’s desired goals, as well as Dr. Tang’s recommendation, but in many cases, patients only need one treatment. And because the skin has produced new collagen with Ultherapy, the results are permanent in the sense that the skin will appear tighter and more youthful compared to its state before treatment.
  • Myth 3: Everyone is a good candidate for Ultherapy skin tightening. An initial, one-on-one consultation with Dr. Tang will determine whether the patient is a good candidate for Ultherapy, but typically, patients who benefit the most from the treatment are those with mild to moderate skin laxity. Patients who wish to improve the appearance of drooping eyebrows, sagging skin under the neck and chin, and vertical wrinkles on the chest are also prime candidates for Ultherapy skin tightening.
