Pros And Cons of Ultherapy Treatment

People who are afraid of having a surgical facelift can opt for Ultherapy. It is a wonderful non-surgical facelift procedure that delivers exceptional results. Unlike facelift surgery, Ultherapy does not require incisions, cutting, or stitching. Also, it not only lifts the saggy skin but is also responsible for diminishing other aging signs as well. When we age, the collagen levels in our skin start decreasing due to which skin becomes dull, thin, and loose. With this top-notch treatment, you can lift, plump, or tighten the skin painlessly. It is FDA-approved and has become the first choice of a majority of people because of its brilliant results.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy in Dubai uses ultrasound energy to encourage collagen growth. During the process, the exposure of skin to the focused heat energy tightens the drooping skin. The energy is delivered in the underlying structure of the skin so the results last for several months. The treatment can be done on one face, neck, and décolletage. It improves the elasticity of the skin and reduces wrinkles, fine lines, spots, blemishes, and freckles. As a result of the treatment, the patient gets a more youthful and glowing look overall.

As compared to all other non-surgical facelift procedures Ultherapy delivers better results. Results are gradual and continue to improve for about 3-4 months after the procedure. The longevity of the outcomes depends upon the patient’s immune system, genes, and body’s natural ability to produce collagen. In most cases, one or two sessions are enough to get the desired results.

Pros and Cons:


  1. Non-Invasive Nature:

While discussing the advantages of Laser Therapy, its non-invasive nature is considerable. The treatment provides a significant lift to the face and regenerates new collagen and elastin in the skin without downtime. This aspect of treatment is worthy of time and respect.

  1. Short and Safe Procedure:

The procedure is short, safe, and done on all areas of the face even around the eyes. There will be no pain or discomfort during the process. So choose the therapy without giving it a second thought. It yields effective results without leaving scars behind. This makes it better than traditional facelift surgery.

  1. FDA Approved:

Ultherapy in Dubai & Abu Dhabi is the only non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA to lift the skin on the face, neck, and chest. It also improves the appearance of wrinkles and spots appearing in these regions.

  1. Outstanding Results:

Results are not as effective as facelift surgery but they are better than other non-surgical facelift procedures. They appear gradually but last longer. After a few months, you will see fuller results of the treatment so wait to see them.

  1. Short Recovery Period:

Because it is a non-invasive treatment, therefore, it involves a short recovery time. Most patients take only 3-4 days to fully recover. This recovery period will not affect your life because you don’t need to impose any restrictions after the treatment.

  1. Combats Aging Signs:

When we age or our skin has some exposure to sunlight, collagen concentration in our skin drops. This gives rise to different skin problems including wrinkles, fine lines, spots, melasma, and more. Ultherapy can help in this regard. It rejuvenates the skin and makes it look smoother, firmer, and flawless.


  1. Just like the pros, it is important to know about the cons of the therapy especially if you are getting it on your face. The biggest downside of the treatment is that the results are not guaranteed, they vary from person to person depending upon the immune system and genes.
  2. Another big con of therapy is its high price. The doctors charge separately for each session so the greater the number of sessions, the more costly the treatment. We cannot tell you exactly how many sessions you will need to get the desired results. For some patients, maintenance sessions are also recommended.

Which One to Choose: Ultherapy or Facelift Surgery?

Depends. If you have severe skin laxity issues then you should only go for facelift surgery because there is no such non-surgical procedure available that can overcome this degree of sagginess. For mild and moderate skin sagging, Ultherapy Treatment in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah can help.

Concluding Remarks!

Before deciding on Ultherapy, get an initial consultation with your practitioner to discuss all the aspects. Ask him in detail about the treatment’s recovery period, benefits, cost, risks, results, etc. Then make a decision. In this consultation session, he will also ask you some questions about your health so prepare for it.
