With countless celebrity and patient endorsements of Ultherapy and the rejuvenating effects it can have for a person without the need for surgery, it can seem like its benefits are too good to be true. If you’re interested in non-surgical skin tightening and facial rejuvenation, but wary of the seemingly impossible results it’s achieved for others, you’re in the right place. Let’s look at what Ultherapy is and whether it really works together.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that uses ultrasound stimulation to selectively heat the layers of skin responsible for building collagen and elastin, skin tightening proteins that contribute to a tight, youthful appearance. The treatment is often referred to as a non-surgical facelift for its ability to tighten facial skin without needing incisions. It is unique among ultrasound-emitting cosmetic devices because it allows Dr. Ellen to image the skin as she treats it, ensuring consistent results with a very low risk of complications.
Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to lift the skin of the face, chin (double chin treatment), neck, and brow. In some cases, Ultherapy can even help lift and improve wrinkles and lines in a person’s decolletage. While not everyone may need all of these areas treated, one of the main benefits of Ultherapy is the versatility of the treatment, capable of treating many conditions as opposed to being tuned to just one procedure.
When used in these areas, Ultherapy reduces wrinkles, tightens lax skin, and improves skin texture over time, helping to replace stores of collagen lost due to the aging process.
Most patients benefit from multiple sessions of Ultherapy for optimal results, meaning your results will take time to appear. The mechanism of Ultherapy’s benefits is skin cell stimulation, meaning it takes time for your treatment area to respond to Ultherapy. Over the course of several weeks, your skin will produce increased amounts of collagen and other skin-tightening proteins and work to firm up the structure of new skin cells that will appear as your skin regenerates itself by producing new layers of skin.
As an FDA-cleared procedure, there are demonstrated benefits and effects from Ultherapy that prove it is an effective treatment for tightening skin, so yes, it really works! The results that you experience will vary depending on your skin’s overall health and the number and types of treatment you receive, however, you can generally expect firmer skin, a tightened appearance to treated areas, and a more youthful contour to sagging areas.
There is no downtime or preparation needed for Ultherapy, making it a quick and convenient treatment you can easily work into your daily routine. Common side effects people experience after Ultherapy include redness or a flushed appearance in the treatment area, tenderness, swelling, tingling, or other mild sensations. These all fade in just a few hours as your skin reacts to the treatment.
