Ultherapy is a US FDA-cleared, and European CE-certified non-invasive ultrasound treatment that is primarily used to counteract the effects of time and gravity on your skin. It lifts and tightens skin naturally on your brows, neck, under your chin and on the décolletage by heating the collagen tissue. The procedure uses the body’s own regenerative response to improve the appearance of lines and sagging skin.
As Ultherapy lifts and tightens your skin, the sensation is often described as momentary prickling or heat and it is unlikely that you will require pain medication during the 30 to 90-minute procedure. Your skin might be flushed after the session, but it should subside within a few hours because there is no downtime in this non-surgical treatment, you’ll be able to return to your daily routines right away and there are no special measures that you need to take.
You can expect the full effect to take place over the course of two to three months, and you’ll have tighter and more radiant skin at the end of the process. Most patients only require one treatment to achieve their desired results, which will continue to improve over a few months.
