How long do results from Ultherapy® last?
Because Ultherapy® stimulates collagen production within the treatment area, results last longer than most other non-invasive skin tightening treatments. While Ulthera® does not stop skin and tissue from aging, patients can expect to see results for up to a year. Annual touch-up treatments can help patients keep up with the aging process.
What does Ultherapy® Non-Surgical Facelift feel like?
While the sensation varies from patient to patient, many describe a brief prickling or heat sensation under the skin. This occurs when the ultrasound energy is delivered to the treatment area(s). My medical staff and I work to provide our patients with the most comfortable treatment experience. While comfort levels differ among patients, full anesthesia is not necessary during and Ultherapy® treatment. However, a topical anesthetic and oral pain medicines may be used to ensure patient comfort.
Am I a candidate for Ulthera®?
Individuals who are experiencing mild to moderate sagging in the face and upper neck are excellent candidates for Ulthera®. While Ulthera® Non-Surgical Facelift works to tighten the same tissues that are repaired during facelift surgery, it is not a replacement for surgery in individuals with more advanced signs of aging. Contact our office to schedule your consultation to see if Ulthera® could benefit you.
How many Ulthera® treatments will I need to see results?
The number of treatments needed varies based on the patient’s skin condition, desired outcome, and other factors. Most Ultherapy® patients see good clinical results with just one treatment. A follow-up visit can be scheduled to track your progress and take before and after photographs; patients who desire additional refinement may choose to have a secondary treatment at this time.
