What to Expect
Plan your collagen comeback without surgery2,3
Schedule a one-on-one consultation with an Ultherapy provider so they can assess your skin, address your concerns, and determine if you are a candidate for Ultherapy.
There are no pre- or post-treatment skin care requirements associated with Ultherapy, so once you book your personalized Ultherapy procedure, you can relax!3
Your Ultherapy provider may recommend certain options to enhance your comfort during treatment.
A customized treatment plan that’s good as gold2
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, your Ultherapy practitioner will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin.
To customize your treatment, your Ultherapy practitioner will next visualize the best location for treatment through Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging, in order to target the area(s) that will benefit you most.
During treatment, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited under the skin, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but you may experience the sensation of heat and/or tingling while the energy is being delivered.3
Recognized as the Gold Standard for nonsurgical lifting and tightening by an expert panel of physicians, Ultherapy is customized, so the length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan.2 A face* and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while treatment for the upper chest (or décolletage) takes approximately 30 minutes.
*Face refers to treatment of one or more of the FDA-cleared areas of the brow and under the chin.
No downtime, only natural-looking results1-3
That’s right—you can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, speak with your provider about what to expect following your Ultherapy treatment.
