What Risks Are Involved with Ultherapy?

As more people look for non-invasive ways to look youthful and get back their glowing skin, Ultherapy has quickly become a sought after skin rejuvenation treatment. It is a very effective way to kick-start the skin restoration process, but what risks are involved in Ultherapy.

Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that firms and lifts the skin, with the use of ultrasound energy. Ultherapy delivers energy directly to the dermis, and this leads to the formation of collagen, and the contraction of the tissue. The action of the ultrasound energy makes the skin firmer and tighter.

Risks involved with Ultherapy
Ultherapy is FDA cleared and the risks associated with the procedure are few. However, as is the case with all procedures of this kind, there is always the possibility of complications. However, ultrasound energy is very safe, as it has been used in medicine for many years.

Nerve injury can occur, if the physician doing the procedure mistakenly treats the area above the nerve. This can be avoided by going to a physician with expert knowledge of the face and neck. There is also the risk of burns, but this only happens in cases where the medical practitioner is not skilled with the use of the technology.

Ultherapy has been safely performed on thousands of patients worldwide, but it is important to choose a physician with advanced training using the technology, as well as a lot of experience doingthe procedure.  There are likely to be few or no complications when Ultherapy is performed by experienced hands, using safe techniques.
