Do Ultherapy treatments hurt?

If you are looking for a non-surgical way to tone and uplift your skin, Ultherapy may be the treatment for you. With Ultherapy there is no anesthesia, no incisions, and no downtime, and the results look natural. Ultherapy has become a favorite skin rejuvenation tool since gaining FDA approval in 2012, but do Ultherapy treatments hurt.

Ultherapy
Ultherapy is a cutting-edge ultrasound-based treatment for the face and neck that addresses mild to moderate sagging of the skin. It is the only non-surgical skin tightening solution that targets the deep foundation below the surface of the skin, which is the same area that is addressed by a surgical facelift.

How Ultherapy works
The focused ultrasound energy bypasses the outer layer of the skin, and targets the foundational layer ofconnective tissue. The ultrasound pulses stimulate collagen, elastin, and other vital skin proteins that make the skin tighter and firmer.

Does Ultherapy hurt
Patients do feel some discomfort during Ultherapy, as the focused ultrasound energy is being delivered to the deep layers of the skin. The heat energy makes the procedure somewhat uncomfortable, but this is only temporary, and will stop as soon as treatment is over. The discomfort is an indication that the collagen is being stimulated below the surface.

Who is a good candidate?
Ultherapy is the ideal treatment for people who are just beginning to see the signs of aging. If you have sagging skin on the eyelids, or your eyebrow line is starting to descend, Ultherapy can give you the subtle uplift you are looking for. The procedure works best on people with mild to moderate skin laxity.
