WHAT IS ULTHERAPY?

Ultherapy® is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face, neck and chest that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. The FDA-cleared, Health Canada approved device used in the procedure utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin – including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift – without disturbing the surface of the skin. In some ways, Ultherapy® is just like an ultrasound imaging procedure that expectant mothers may receive. A smooth hand-piece is placed on your skin and an image of the tissue beneath is projected on a screen. With the visualized image of the treatment areas, that same hand-piece is also used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin. For facial procedures, this is the same foundational layer typically addressed in a surgical facelift.

HOW DOES ULTHERAPY WORK?

Ultherapy® is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face, neck and chest that utilizes focused ultrasound energy to trigger the body’s natural collagen production process. When the time-tested ultrasound waves are transmitted to the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, new and more elastic collagen is stimulated to build over time from within the deep, structural skin tissues. The result is a gradual tightening and lifting – or even shifting of the skin back to its more youthful position and form-fitting shape against the currents of aging.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  • Is the Ultherapy® painful?

To allow for a treatment efficacy as high as can be achieved with Ultherapy®, the performing doctor will administer local anesthetic injections before the treatment begins. Additionally, to relieve any discomfort that may occur during the injection(s), use of analgesic laughing gas and/or topical anesthetic cream application is also available. In turn, the ultrasound energy can be used at its maximal treatment setting while keeping the treatment experience pleasant.
 

  • Is there any downtime following Ultherapy®?

Most patients are able to resume regular daily routine. The recovery process, if any, may include minor swelling from the local anesthetic injection(s), which usually resolves within 3-4 days following the procedure.
 

  • When can I see the result?

The results of Ultherapy® begin to unfold gradually over the course of 2-3 months following the procedure, depending on each patient’s natural rate of collagen production. Thanks to the progressive appearance of treatment results, the anti-aging effects visualize without a sudden radical change or the stiffness of expression such as that following a surgical facial lifting procedure.
 

  • How long does the obtained result last?

While the results of Ultherapy® may last up to 2 years, depending on patient lifestyle, duration of one’s body’s conservation of collagen, as well as the natural rate of aging, repeat procedure(s) may be recommended once a year for the maintenance of long-term treatment benefits.
