Ultherapy Fast Facts: 5 Factors That Patients Appreciate


Posted by May 8th, 2020 in News

Skin laxity is a telling sign of aging, and the body’s upper extremities are usually the first to experience and show the changes that come with the loss of skin elasticity. Luckily, there are now non-invasive options for improving this particular skin issue; and Ultherapy is fast becoming the most favored non-invasive skin tightening treatment by patients.

What is Ultherapy?

In a nutshell, Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that uses focused sound waves to target the deeper tissues below the skin. In the past, these tissues were only addressed through a surgical “lift” (brow lift, facelift, or neck lift). But thanks to advancements in non-invasive cosmetic technology, these same tissues can now be “worked on” without the pain and cost of surgery.

Why do patients prefer Ultherapy over other skin-tightening procedures? Here are some Ultherapy benefits:

It’s non-surgical

This one bears repeating because being able to tighten loose or sagging skin without going under the knife is by far the most important deciding factor for a lot of patients.

It’s cost-effective

Cost is also a huge factor in deciding what type of cosmetic procedure to undergo to address a specific issue; in this case, sagging or loose skin. Since Ultherapy is non-surgical, the cost is considerably cut in half, maybe more. The best part about it is that it provides satisfactory results. Imagine being able to lift the skin without surgery without breaking the bank.

It’s a quick procedure

One Ultherapy session can last anywhere from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on your specific skin laxity issues and the target areas. It’s an in-office procedure that you can take during your lunch break.

No recovery period

Ultherapy is a simple in-office or out-patient procedure that requires no downtime or recovery period. Most patients usually go back to their daily schedule immediately after treatment.

Minor to limited side effects may be experienced

Some patients feel a mild discomfort (tingling sensation, mostly) while the ultrasound energy is being deposited into the target area/s. Bruising, swelling, or redness may also occur after treatment but usually, these resolve on their own over time.

Results become visible two to three months after treatment

Ultherapy works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen-producing process, which is why results may not become immediately visible after treatment. It all depends on the patient’s collagen production ‘time.’ If you don’t see results after a month or two, your body could still be working on its collagen production so be a little bit more patient.

Results will also last depending on your body’s natural aging process/collagen production. Most patients enjoy their Ultherapy results from one year up to two years.
