The 411 on Ultherapy

Author: Dr. Bobby Buka

If you are starting to notice sagging skin on your face or neck but don’t want to undergo invasive plastic surgery procedures, The Dermatology Specialists has a solution for you! Ultherapy, a non-invasive option to lift skin on the face and neck, is a great option for quick, pain-free results. Read on to get the lowdown on this treatment.

What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that uses ultrasound technology to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, around the eyebrow, and on the décolletage. There is no downtime associated with Ultherapy.

What to Expect During Treatment
Before your treatment, pain killers may be taken to ensure your comfort during the treatment. Sonogram gel will then be applied and an ultrasound wand will be used to produce sonic waves, targeting problem areas and rebuilding collagen.

Is it Painful?
Ultherapy is not particularly painful, though some patients may experience a mild “zapping” sensation or a warm sensation. Most patients tolerate Ultherapy very well, though pain medication can be taken beforehand to ensure a comfortable experience.

Following their treatment patients may experience mild swelling, inflammation, and tenderness, though these side-effects should dissipate with time. Patients can expect to start seeing results after two weeks, with results continuing to appear over the next couple of months. Outcomes will not be as dramatic as a facelift, though it is a great option for those who are not yet ready for surgery.
