Ultherapy Q&A

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared noninvasive procedure that tightens your skin using ultrasound energy waves. While ultrasound isn’t new to medicine, Ultherapy harnesses its power and delivers it into your skin and underlying tissues. The procedure also uses the more widely known ultrasound imaging for more direct and precise energy delivery.

 

When the ultrasound waves reach your tissues, your skin begins to produce collagen fibers. These fibers are already present in your skin and give it structure and firmness. You produce fewer collagen fibers as you age, and Ultherapy helps them reappear with a comfortable 30-90 minute treatment. 

What changes can I make with Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is specifically designed to target areas on your face, neck, and chest. Using Ultherapy alone, you can:

 

  • Tighten the skin on your neck and chest
  • Define your chin and jawline
  • Lift your brows to open your eyes

 

Following Ultherapy treatment at Zen Skincare and Medspa, you notice that your skin looks tighter and firmer, with no downtime and completely natural results. The results improve with time as the collagen fibers continue to grow within your tissues. 

 

Unlike other energy-based skin treatments, you can see results with one Ultherapy session. If your skin is particularly lax, Holly may recommend more as needed.

Who is a candidate for Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is very gentle on your skin and doesn’t cause any long-term side effects or complications. In fact, physicians often use ultrasound to safely view babies in the womb. For this reason, most requirements for candidacy have more to do with your goals than the safety of the procedure. You might be a candidate for Ultherapy treatments if you:

 

  • Have mild or moderately loose skin
  • Have wrinkles and lines on your chest
  • Are 30 or older
  • Don’t want to get cosmetic surgery
  • Have already had cosmetic surgery and want to extend the effects

 

At Zen Skincare and Medspa, Holly reviews your treatment goals and helps you decide if Ultherapy, other treatments, or a combination is the right way to meet them. If it’s your first time getting skin tightening or other cosmetic procedures, Ultherapy is a great place to start.

How long do the effects of Ultherapy last?

You enjoy the results of your Ultherapy session for a long time because the treatment uses your tissues and fibers to hold the structure. The timing of the results varies among individuals, but you can always return to Zen Skincare and Medspa once you see the laxity of your skin returning.
