Ultherapy is the only non-invasive skin tightening treatment approved by the FDA for neck, jaw, and eyebrow lifting. In Ultherapy, ultrasound focused on lifting and tightening loose skin over time is used.
Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure that is non-surgical and uses ultrasound focused on the skin to stimulate the growth of new collagen. New collagen production occurs over time. Therefore the results can become apparent in 3 to six 6 months. Most of the procedure takes only one hour for the patient without interruptions. It is also the only treatment that uses ultrasound imaging to see the target tissue layers during surgery and to apply energy to the most effective place.
In ultherapy treatment, comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, but most patients indicate that the application is tolerable. If any discomfort happens, it happens while ultrasound energy is given. This is a positive sign that the process of collagen creation has begun and temporary.
There is no side effect of ultherapy treatment. Only for one and a half hours after treatment, there can be redness in general, swelling, tingling or tenderness in a small area but these are mild and transient side effects.
