More About Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a relatively new cosmetic procedure for skin tightening and rejuvenation. The procedure uses ultrasound technology to create micro-injuries that heal over a course of weeks, leading to tighter, smoother, and more youthful looking skin.

Ultherapy sends targeted energy directly into the deep, structural tissues to trigger a natural, restorative reaction that activates the development of new collagen growth.

The results develop gradually over a period of 4 to 6 months as the additional collagen fully kicks in.

Ideal Candidates for Ultherapy

Ultherapy works best for those with mild to moderate skin laxity. The ideal candidate is typically in their 30s, 40s, or early 50s and has skin that is beginning to sag, resulting in drooping brows, a turkey neck, or more pronounced jowls.

Ultherapy is also safe enough for any skin tone or type.

7 Things You Need to Keep in Mind When Undergoing Ultherapy

Here are the seven things you need to remember when undergoing Ultherapy:

  1. It is FDA-approved. Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved procedure to lift and tighten skin on the brows, décolleté or chest region, face and neck.

2. Your skin will gradually lift and tighten thanks to your body’s natural healing process. Ultherapy improves lines and wrinkles by utilizing your body's natural healing mechanisms.

Neocollagenesis is the body's natural response that is activated by Ultherapy, and it occurs in the deep structural supporting layers underneath the skin's surface. Your body then produces more collagen, which results in firmer and tighter skin.

  1. Ultherapy is not a laser. Instead, it uses ultrasound technology and works from the "inside-out," bypassing the skin's surface and penetrating deeply into the skin tissues, leaving no visible scars or marks, as opposed to lasers that pass through the skin first.

  1. Results take time, but they also last longer. Unlike other procedures like Botox, the results of Ultherapy are not always so obvious after the treatment.

Following treatment, some patients experience a slight firming effect brought on by the contraction of their collagen fibers. Maximum results typically emerge over the course of the following 3 to 6 months when the body increases its collagen production.

  1. There is almost no downtime. Your recovery time following an in-office Ultherapy procedure is next to nothing because this is a noninvasive procedure. You can go back to your normal activities after the treatment.


  1. Don’t forget to schedule follow-up treatments to maintain results. Maintain your smooth and youthful skin by undergoing Ultherapy once a year.

  1. A good skincare regimen can help provide even better results. Good skincare habits can enhance or prolong the results of the treatment. Be sure to carry out the right skin care regimen, including daily sun protection.
