What Ultherapy® Can & Can’t Do

By in Blog, Ultherapy  » 

Ultherapy® (non-surgical skin tightening) is one of the fastest growing nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. The treatment grew in popularity by almost 60% in 2015 over the previous year, per the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Even today, this treatment continues to gain popularity and the efficacy of the treatment is incredible. However, it is very important to understand what this procedure can and can’t do.

What Ultherapy Can Do

Ultherapy is particularly good for patients that have mild to moderate skin laxity issues in areas where the skin should feel taught. Ultherapy can be used for the neck, chin, chest, and a low brow line. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology, stimulating collagen deep in the skin, leaving you with tighter, smoother looking skin. There no down time with Ultherapy as the treatment is noninvasive and uses gentle ultrasound technology. You may experience slight redness, swelling, and pain following treatment, which usually subsides within a day. You should be able to return to your daily routine immediately.

What Ultherapy Can’t Do

While Ultherapy is a great treatment for those who are a good candidate for it, it is important to have realistic expectations about what it can do. Ultherapy treatments cannot eliminate fat. The elimination of fat would require a treatment such as liposuction. Ultherapy also cannot replace a neck or facelift. Once aging has progressed to a certain degree, a patient may need to try more invasive measure to correct that degree of skin laxity.
