It really depends on the area being treated. Usually, a neck and face procedure takes 60 to 90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.  There is no necessary downtime with Ultherapy®. After treatment, you can go on with your daily activities right away.   

How Does It Feel?  

You will feel a small amount of sensation. However, your comfort level may be different from another patient’s. The sensation will only last the duration of the ultrasound. 

When Will I See Results, And For How Long?

You might see some initial effect right away, but the ultimate results will take place over two to three months, as the body naturally regenerates collagen. How long the results last, depends on you. The procedure makes new collagen on the inside, but the natural aging process will eventually begin again. Therefore, you may need another treatment after some time to maintain your results.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?  

The majority of patients just need one treatment. But some patients do well with more treatments, depending on their individual collagen-building process. Skin continues to age, so touch-ups in the future can help keep up with the body’s natural aging process.   

Are There Side Effects?  

There may be some redness at first, but it should go away within a few hours. Some may experience slight tingling, swelling, or tenderness to the touch, but it’s also temporary. Less common side effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of the skin. Be sure to discuss all the risks with your doctor.

Am I A Good Ultherapy® Candidate?  

A good candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin starts to look and feel less firm. So, you might have loose skin on your neck, a lowered eyebrow line, lines or wrinkles on your chest, or sagging skin under your chin.  As mentioned in our previous article, Ultherapy® is not a facelift. So if you have severe skin laxity, Ultherapy® may not be right for you. As always, it’s essential to speak with your doctor. 

Now you know all there is to know about Ultherapy®! If this gravity-defying treatment interests you, schedule a consultation today!
