Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Unlike lasers and other technologies, Ultherapy avoids the surface area of the skin, delivering the appropriate energy at the right depths and temperature for collagen reproduction. The main treatment areas for Ultherapy are the eyebrow, chin, and neck. Ultherapy is now the only non-invasive procedure indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation and produces a significant lift of the tissue over a course of two to three months. Ultherapy isn’t a replacement for a face-lift and it won’t give the same results , but it is a great non-surgical option to tighten and lift the treated areas with minimal to no downtime.
Treatments typically take anywhere from sixty to ninety minutes depending on the treatment area. The chest typically only takes about thirty minutes. You will feel the energy being delivered underneath the skin with the sensation subsiding after the pulse in each specific area is complete. Comfort levels vary from patient to patient.
You can expect some mild redness immediately after the procedure, it should disappear within a few hours. Some patients may have some mild swelling and soreness to the touch after the procedure, but these are also temporary and resolve on their own in a short period of time.
