Ultherapy is a leading solution for sagging, wrinkle-prone skin. It uses gentle ultrasound energy to boost the body’s collagen reserves and achieve a firmer, smoother skin tone. As an innovative alternative to plastic surgery, Ultherapy has gained wide approval among patients seeking a safe treatment that is minimally invasive.
FDA-approved Ultherapy relies on ultrasound energy, the same medium used in medical diagnostics. The gentle treatment beams trigger the body to start producing more collagen, a protein that softens and smooths the skin. Ultherapy can be used to tone the face, neck, and upper chest. One of the best advantages of Ultherapy is that the provider can see the treatment working in real time on a monitor. They are able to make sure the energy is hitting its intended points, and that results are uniform.
How Ultherapy works
Collagen is a protein found in the human body that helps support a youthful skin structure. With time, natural supplies of collagen are used up, and the skin’s elasticity suffers. Ultherapy fixes this problem by applying gentle thermal energy to the pores. This awakens the body’s self-repair system, telling the system to produce more of the collagen protein.

Who is a candidate?
Candidates for Ultherapy are usually in their 30s and 40s and want to reduce signs of aging non-surgically without a long recovery period. They wish for smoother, tighter skin on the face, neck, and upper chest. Health is a deciding factor when considering a cosmetic treatment. The potential patient should be in good shape physically and emotionally before undergoing Ultherapy.

What to expect during the procedure
After the skin is cleansed, a gel will be applied to help guide the Ultherapy applicator in a smooth fashion. Your provider will use ultrasound imaging to find the best treatment path for the device. You may feel small bursts of energy against the skin during your treatment, but this just indicates the technology is working. You may also feel a slight tingling.
Many patients are surprised at the lack of downtime after Ultherapy. They are happy to return to their normal activities without any restrictions after their treatments. At first, the skin may look red as though a sunburn has occurred. This side effect goes away within several hours. Less frequent effects of the treatment may include temporary numbness, swelling, or bruising. Speak with your provider to learn more about what you can expect after Ultherapy.
