Ultherapy 101: All You Need To Know

ULTHERAPY is a non-invasive skin tightening technique that helps in boosting the collagen production in your skin. It is becoming a popular alternative to its surgical counterpart i.e. facelift. The main reason behind the increasing popularity of Ultherapy is its nearly pain-free experience with little to no downtown time requirement.  

How Does It Work?

Using the technique of ultherapy, medical practitioners target the areas under the skin with focused ultrasound energy and high temperature. The heat energy from this process results in the stimulation of collagen regeneration. As a result, the in-depth stimulation of collagen affects all the three layers of your skin i.e. muscles, superficial wrinkles as well as worn-out skin. Likewise, the ultrasound energy activates the elastic tissues which result in firmer and tighter skin having fewer wrinkles.

Ultherapy: Does it require any Preparation?

The overall process of ultherapy doesn’t require any preparation time as such. There are no special protocols that you have to follow before and after the procedure. You can immediately return to your normal life after undergoing ultherapy.

However, prior to the procedure, you have to remove your makeup or any other product that you must be wearing on your skin. Additionally, your doctor may prescribe some pain reducers or anti-inflammatory drugs to you before the procedure. In some cases, these drugs can affect your ability to drive so to be on the safer side plan to take a cab or ask someone to pick you up.

The Process of Ultherapy

Before the process of ultherapy, your doctor will properly clean the areas where the procedure is going to be performed. After thoroughly cleaning the skin, they will apply any kind of oil, gel, or residue that they plan on using. Your doctor will place the ultherapy device against your skin and will target the treatment areas with ultrasound waves. Some people may experience slight pain, intermittent heat, and tingling during the process. Because of this reason, some doctors use pain relievers before starting the procedure.

A complete session of ultherapy can take time from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the treatment areas. Usually, ultherapy done on the chest area takes less time compared to face and neck areas. The ultherapy is ideal for areas such as the face, neck, and chest. Other areas where you can use ultherapy to hide the signs of aging include:

  • Eyebrows.
  • Area Under the chin.
  • Decolletage
