Has your face lost its firmness and youthful appearance? Are looking for a non-surgical way to improve it? If you answered yes to these questions, you may be a good candidate for Ultherapy. But how does the procedure work, and how many Ultherapy sessions do you need to see results. Let’s find out how this procedure can help you.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasiveskin tightening procedure that uses ultrasound energy. It can be used to lift and tighten the skin in areas such as the eyes, neck, and under the chin.
How does it work?
The device uses focused ultrasound energy to target the skin tissues, and stimulate collagen beneath the skin. Ultherapy affects the deep structural support layers, but does not disturb the surface layer of the skin.Treatment time varies from 60 to 90 minutes. There is no downtime, so patients can return to regular activities right away.
How many Ultherapy treatments do you need?
Ultherapy treatment is generally customized to meet the needs and skin type of each patient. However, most patients experience a subtle to moderate improvement in the appearance of the skin after one treatment. Some patients with more severe skin laxity may require another treatment (read more).
Doctors generally recommended that you wait at least a year, before considering another treatment. As new collagen is produced, the skin will continue to tighten and uplift for at least the next 6 months.
Ultherapy is often done in combination with other treatments such as dermal fillers, in order to address issues such as fine lines.
