How Does Ultherapy Work?
The practice utilizes ultrasound technology – the same procedure that’s been trusted by the medical industry for decades. Where other procedures rely on lasers or radio frequencies, Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to pinpoint three layers beneath the skin’s surface wherever problem areas exist.
Afterward, the skin naturally responds to stimulation by producing collagen, the protein responsible for healthy skin and tissue. The result is new, firmer, lifted skin.
What Can I Expect?
After an application of gel, clients will feel a sensation on the skin similar to a “blast” of pressure. It is not typically painful; rather, it has the tendency to feel slightly uncomfortable. In fact, most clients report having felt more nervous about the anticipation of pain than actual pain.
Clients may experience slight swelling, tenderness, or irritation in the days to follow with optimal results occurring four to 12 weeks after their session.
We recommend a round of Fraxel after every Ultherapy treatment to reinforce the effects of new collagen for a more vibrant appearance. It will also smooth the skin to help offset any side effects of Ultherapy and enhance the look and feel of the treated areas.
Most clients need only one Ultherapy session, making Fraxel a quick and ideal follow-up to bring about optimal results.
What Happens During an Ultherapy Consultation?
During the appointment, our expertly-trained staff can answer all of your questions about the procedure, as well as discuss your specific aesthetic goals and history to determine if Ultherapy is right for you. If we are not able to recommend Ultherapy, we are happy to provide other alternative services and treatments that can help you look and feel your best.
