Ultherapy Q& A

What is Ultherapy?

Losing skin elasticity as you age, such as getting unsightly lines and wrinkles, is normal. But with advancements in medical laser technology, you can restore your youthful skin without having to go through a facelift or another invasive procedure.

Ultherapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical facelift treatment that’s cleared by the FDA to enhance and lift skin. During treatments, your provider uses ultrasound imaging to see the deeper layers of your skin. This way, they can send ultrasonic energy precisely where it’s going to be most beneficial.

Ultherapy’s ultrasonic energy promotes healing and collagen development by gently heating tissues, which allows your skin to tighten and lift over time. Because your skin is healing and regenerating from deep within, results are long-lasting.

Am I a good candidate for Ultherapy?

If you have mild to moderate skin drooping or loss of laxity, you’re likely an ideal candidate for Ultherapy. You might also want to consider Ultherapy if you aren’t ready for a surgical facelift or if you want to enhance the benefits of a previous cosmetic procedure.

An Ultherapy treatment can improve the appearance of:

  • Lowered eyebrow lines
  • Loose neck skin
  • Sagging chin skin
  • Wrinkles or lines on chest
  • Frown or smile lines

Your practitioner can go over your concerns and expected outcomes during your Ultherapy consultation at Elysium SurgiSpa.

Is Ultherapy painful?

Most men and women report feeling a warming or tingling sensation. You might have periods of slight discomfort for brief moments during energy delivery in specific sensitive areas, such as right underneath your chin.

Because the treatment is entirely non-invasive, you don’t have any downtime or recovery time.

Will I need more than one Ultherapy session?

It depends, although most men and women notice a dramatic improvement after just one session. Though you might notice a difference shortly after your treatment, it takes time for your body to regenerate collagen and fresh, new skin tissues.

You should have optimal results within two to three months. If you want to have another Ultherapy session to improve your skin’s appearance after that point, you can safely schedule another treatment. You can also request touch-ups as needed.
