What is Ultherapy?

Imagine a high intensity focused ultrasound being directed on your skin, and it working its magic underneath all the layers to ensure that you have skin that is firmer, more elastic and having a more even tone. Approved by the FDA, this is a non-invasive facelift, which will ensure that you have skin that you had in your late teens and early twenties.
Because there is no surgery involved, there is little to worry about, and given that ultrasound has been used for ages and that too quite safely, it comes as no surprise that the ultherapy treatment is fast gaining popularity. Initially, the treatment was being used only for the face, but now the same procedure can also be used to improve your décolletage. This means that from your forehead to your chest, you can now looking younger.
The ulthera skin tightening treatment has been designed in such a manner that not only will it tighten your skin, it will also stimulate the collagen production within the skin, ensuring that your skin looks firmer and younger.

Ultherapy Procedure & Cost

The ultherapy procedure is non-invasive and involves no cuts or injections – the procedure is done solely with the help of an ultrasound wand. The wand will work on the surface of the skin and deliver a precise amount of energy to the layers beneath. The energy that is generated will lead to the production of collagen, renewing your skin.
Given that this is a non-surgical face lift , there is next to no downtime and you will be able to return to your normal routine within no time. In addition, the results will start becoming visible within hours.
The treatment cost will be dependent on how large or small an area you are planning on getting treated.

Ultherapy side effects

  • Redness – Once the procedure has been completed, there is bound to be a little redness; in some people, it presents almost as if the skin is looking flushed. This redness will however, disappear in a matter of hours.
  • Tenderness and swelling – In certain people there can be a small amount of swelling, tenderness and a tingling sensation. These too are temporary and will not last for more than a few hours.
  • Temporary bruising – This is a rare and once again temporary side effect, and is normally seen on a very small section of the skin. If the bruising does not reduce even after 24 hours, you might want to head back to get it checked.

Advantages of Ultherapy over Thermage

While both Ultherapy and Thermage are non-invasive and non-surgical methods of skin toning and tightening, the former is a newer procedure, which makes it a better option.

  • While ultherapy works from the inside out, Thermage tends to work inwards from the outside. This means that ultherapy goes deep into the skin and works its way towards the outer layers of the skin, while Thermage starts to work on the surface of the skin and the heat goes inwards. Because the collagen production happens inside the skin, it is ultherapy that might be a better choice.
  • People who have undergone the procedures have mentioned that with ultherapy there is no discomfort whatsoever. However, with Thermage there are feelings of hot and cold at the same time, leading to a certain amount of discomfort.
  • With ultherapy there is absolutely no downtime and you will be able to return to your normal routine within minutes of completing the session. But for people undergoing Thermage treatment, there is bound to be some discomfort in the hours after the procedure, leading to a small amount of downtime.
  • Ultherapy sessions normally take anywhere between 30 to 90 minutes, but the results will start to become visible almost immediately. With Thermage, the minimum taken is about 45 minutes and in order for you to see the complete results, you will have to wait for a few months.
