Ultherapy lifts and tightens skin gradually from the inside out without surgery or downtime. Over time, underlying changes to the skin tissue result in lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Ultherapy delivers ultrasound energy non-invasively to heat skin tissue at multiple depths, triggering a natural regenerative response that stimulates the growth of new collagen. Results appear gradually over 23 months and improvements can continue up to 6 months after treatment. Only Ultherapy provides the optimal treatment depth to lift skin without cutting or disturbing the surface of the skin.
By treating at multiple depths of 1.5 mm, 3.0 mm, and 4.5 mm, Ultherapy targets both the superficial layers and the deep foundational layer addressed in surgical facelifts.
Ultherapy heats tissue to 60-70, the optimal temperature for stimulating new collagen growth, or neocollagenesis.
The Ulthera System used to perform Ultherapy, is the only non-invasive device that allows clinicians to see precisely what layers of tissue they are treating. The system’s patented DeepSEE visualization technology provides an added level of precision and safety to the Ultherapy treatment. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow.
While Ultherapy does not duplicate the effects of cosmetic surgery, it is a great alternative for patients not ready for surgery or those who want to continue building new collagen after a surgical lift. The ideal candidate for a face and neck treatment has mild to moderate skin laxity.
Individual results will vary, based on:
Patients can return to normal activities immediately after the Ultherapy treatment.
The skin may appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours.
Some patients experience mild and temporary swelling, which resolves within 72 hours, or tingling or tenderness to the touch, which typically resolves within 2 days to 2 weeks.
In rare cases, there can be temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin.
As with any medical procedure, there are possible risks associated with the treatment.
There is a remote risk of a burn that may or may not lead to scarring, which may respond to medical care. There may be temporary nerve injury, which will resolve in a matter of weeks.
Occasional temporary effects can include bruising or welts, which resolve within 1 to 3 weeks.
Specific to the décolletage treatment, the treated area may exhibit a localized area of linear visible edema (swelling) following treatment. This typically resolves within 1 day to 3 weeks after treatment.
