5 Things to Know before Your Ultherapy Appointment

You have heard of Ultherapy, the nonsurgical solution to skin laxity that is taking the plastic surgery industry by storm. This treatment uses revolutionary ultrasound energy to work in the lower dermal layers, constricting tissue and working with the body’s processes to produce natural, long-lasting results. If you are ready to see the effects of Ultherapy firsthand, the Vein Care Center has a few basic facts about this treatment you should know before you schedule your procedure.

Explaining Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound may be a relative newcomer to the aesthetic scene, but it is a well-established technology in the medical realm. Ultrasound utilizes sound waves to “see” areas of the body, allowing doctors to evaluate pregnancies or assess the condition of the heart without a more invasive procedure. Procedures using ultrasound in this manner are completed painless and the information provided can be invaluable in monitoring patients, making a diagnosis or recommending treatment.

The ultrasound energy used with Ultherapy provides a twofold benefit. First, ultrasound is used to visualize the underlying dermal layers, allowing us to pinpoint the area in need of treatment with a precision never seen with nonsurgical therapies before. Second, targeted ultrasound energy is delivered into those layers, heating them to produce the desired results.

Treatment of the Face, Neck and Décolleté

Ultherapy is a versatile treatment that can be used for nearly any area of the face and neck. The device has also been approved to smooth and firm the skin in the décolleté, an area that often shows significant signs of aging in women. You can choose to have any of these places treated individually or undergo a treatment of all of them at the same time to achieve the best possible results. Our expert team at the Vein Care Center will assess your specific concerns personally to determine whether Ultherapy is the right treatment to help you meet your aesthetic goals.

No Surgery Needed

Before treatments like Ultherapy were introduced, skin tightening could only be accomplished through surgical lift procedures. For the patient, this meant anesthesia, incisions that left scarring behind and ample recovery time afterward. Now, Ultherapy has made surgery unnecessary for many patients, which means you can get the tightening results you want without any of the byproducts of an operation. Ultherapy does not involve incisions, and the only anesthesia used for this procedure is a topical numbing cream for patients concerned about their comfort level during treatment. Patients are usually able to return to their routine as soon as their treatment is over, giving this procedure the nickname “lunchtime lift.”

Procedure Lowdown

While Ultherapy is noninvasive, that doesn’t mean the procedure is completely painless. While many patients can tolerate the procedure well without any medication, others opt for a numbing cream or oral pain reliever to make their session more comfortable. Treatment will typically last one hour or less, depending on the size of the area you choose to address. After your Ultherapy appointment, you may notice the skin in the treatment area is red, slightly swollen and tender. These side effects should not be severe enough to keep you from your regular activities and will likely subside on their own in a matter of days.

Get Long-Lasting Results

Patients that undergo Ultherapy will often achieve their desired results after just one treatment session. The skin may appear tighter and firmer right away, although full results will develop gradually in the weeks following the procedure. Because the treatment stimulates collagen production in the body, you will see your skin grow firmer and look more youthful over time, and these results will continue indefinitely for most patients. If skin laxity starts to appear once again, another Ultherapy treatment should help to keep it in check.
