Frequently Asked Questions About Ultherapy

1) What is Ultherapy?

FDA cleared Ultherapy as a non-invasive procedure for lifting sagging skin (chin, neck, face, brow, etc) and improving lines on the décolletage. This is all done through micro-focused ultrasound radiations with zero downtime.

2) Is Ultherapy a safe procedure?

Scientists and researchers have proven a well-established safety profile of this treatment performed globally to date. More than 75 countries have a proven track record of ultrasound energy, used in the medicinal field.

3) What are the PROS of Ultherapy?

This non-surgical procedure alternative to a facelift includes following pros that aid in diverting the mind of a client to make a stronger decision:

  • Restores collagen
  • Tightens and lifts loose skin
  • Delivers effective and fast results
  • Helps in reducing wrinkles on the décolletage
  • Uses a non-invasive technique with no recovery time

4) How long does a treatment take?

Time depends on the area of treatment. 60-90 minutes are enough for face and neck tightening while chest can be performed under 30 minutes.

5) How it is different from other skin tightening techniques?

Ultherapy works by using ultrasound energy that is passed deeply to the surface of the skin giving rise to optimal collagen production. Whereas other techniques involve the use of radio frequency waves, incisions or lasers. It targets deep tissue layers through heat instead of focusing only the superficial layers.

6) Does the treatment hurt?

The comfort levels vary from person to person. Most of the patients do not report pain or any discomfort. But you should keep in mind, few patients also reported mild discomfort in delivering ultrasound energy. This is temporary. There will be no pain once you are done.

7) When the results become visible?

Each person has different longevity of results. Normally, therapy requires 4-5 sessions for effective outcomes. Many clients come up with improvements after their first sessions but the majority of the effects develop gradually over 6-8 weeks.
