Ultherapy® Harnesses the technology of ultrasound to stimulate your own collagen production. Results are natural, gradual and noticeable. In one study, researchers found that Ultherapy treatment increased the rate of collagen production in skin samples by an average of 50%.3
The power of ultrasound goes to work deep below the skin’s surface, reviving and creating new collagen.2,3 No surgery is required and no downtime is necessary.
Initial results are visible immediately after treatment, but the real results appear over 2–3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting, tightening and improving treated areas.4-9
Ultrasound technology lets practitioners see where they treat, ensuring energy is delivered safely to the right areas.1
While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, it’s a great alternative for patients not ready for surgery or for those who want to continue building collagen after a surgical lift.
The length of the treatment will depend on the area(s) being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face* and neck procedure takes 60–90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.Will I need to take time off?
After an Ultherapy® Procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post-treatment measures. “When will I see results and how long will they last?” You may see some initial effects, but the ultimate results will take place over 2–3 months, as tired collagen is replaced by the growth of new collagen.2,3-9 As skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments may help to give you more control over the aging process. For many patients, it’s comforting to know that Ultherapy is scientifically proven to increase collagen production in their skin.3What does the treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited, indicating that the collagen-building process has begun. Comfort levels vary, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. Your practitioner will make the experience as pleasant as possible, and most patients leave feeling comfortable and excited about the results to come.How long have doctors been using Ultherapy?
The FDA-cleared Ultherapy procedure has been used in over 1 million treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy has been used in the medical field for more than 50 years. In addition, every Ultherapy practitioner receives extensive procedural training and tools, so you can feel confident in choosing Ultherapy.
