Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin treatment that uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production. It helps counteract aging signs like sagging, wrinkles, and drooping of the brow section. The technique is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration as a safe procedure, and sixty-seven percent of treated patients are satisfied with its results. Ultherapy targets deep skin layers to stimulate collagen and elastin tissue, resulting in firmer skin, less sagging, and reduced wrinkle appearance. You can use Ultherapy on your face, neck, and chest. Your Bowling Green Ultherapy Specialist adjusts the ultrasound energy depending on the targeted skin layer.
Preparation for Ultherapy
Ultherapy procedure requires minimal preparations. You can continue with regular activities like eating, drinking, and exercising before and after the process. Before treatment, remove makeup and other skin care products. Your doctor can recommend you take a pain reliever or anti-inflammatory medication before the Ultherapy treatment.
Before the procedure, your laser technician will clean the areas to be treated to clear any oil or residue present and apply an ultrasound gel. The technician will place the Ultherapy device against your skin and use an ultrasound viewer to adjust the instrument to the correct settings. Your healthcare provider will then deliver ultrasound energy to the affected areas. During treatment, you might have sharp sensations of heat and tingling.
Sometimes, your provider can apply pain medication to the areas to be treated to address any discomfort. After the procedure, your doctor will remove the applicator. Ultherapy treatment takes thirty to ninety minutes, depending on the treated area. Chest treatment mostly takes thirty minutes and sixty to ninety minutes in the face and neck areas.
After Ultherapy procedure
You do not need downtime after Ultherapy treatment, so you can return to regular activities like work and exercise immediately after the process. Your skin can become flushed or red hours after the treatment. Tingling, swelling, and tenderness can also happen, but these effects will disappear independently after a few days. In rare instances, you will experience bruising or numbness, but they fade a few days after treatment. Ultherapy treatment allows your provider to visualize skin layers and treat the exact tissue, minimizing side effects and complications.
Depending on your body’s ability to produce new collagen, you can start seeing Ultherapy results within a few days after treatment. Outcomes gradually continue up to three to six months. You will continue seeing the effects as long as your body keeps producing new collagen. You can get additional treatment sessions based on how your skin responds to Ultherapy.
Repeated treatment can be done after six months once a year or two to maintain your results. To increase the durability of your outcomes, you can use high-quality skincare products and skin boosters. Later after Ultherapy treatment, you can have injectable skin boosters like platelet-rich plasma therapy to improve skin texture and tone.
