Frequently Asked Questions
Ultherapy is a revolutionary, non-surgical facelift alternative to tighten and lift the skin. Safe, time-tested Ultrasound technology is what makes Ultherapy so innovative. Specifically, ultrasound waves bypass the surface of the skin, depositing tiny amounts of energy to clearly-defined depths under the skin. As a result, the body jumpstarts the skin’s regenerative process from the inside out. This process stimulates new collagen and elastin production, as well as encourages cellular turnover. Volume is restored to the face and the skin is tightened and toned.
We tend to think of aging as wrinkly, sagging skin on the superficial layers of the face. However, these outward signs of aging are a sign of what’s happening in the deeper, foundational layers of the skin. Over time, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin. As a result, our skin loses elasticity. Further, we lose fat in our face and our skin becomes thinner.
While these processes happen gradually, they eventually cause a cascading effect on the face. The skin on the cheeks loses its firmness. We experience volume loss in the cheeks. Our faces gravitate downward. The result? The tell-tale signs of aging — deep wrinkles, facial hollows, under-eye bags, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and sagging or loose skin on the jawline or jowls.
Ultherapy face treatment works to counteract many of these signs of aging. And Ultherapy is distinctively different from other non invasive beauty treatments because it actually lifts the musculature from within the SMAS (subcutaneous musculoaponeurotic system) layer (where cosmetic surgeons cut), as it tones and tightens skin on the face.
An Ulthera ultrasound treatment stimulates neocollagenesis and elastin remodeling by heating of the dermis in the targeted area. Only Ultherapy can lift and improve skin texture on the face by using patented DeepSee technology. This allows the practitioner to visualize deep beneath the skin’s surface. By using the feedback from the image on-screen, she can deliver precise amounts of energy to reach deep into the SMAS skin layers of the face at three different depths. Only Ultherapy can offer the advantage of being so targeted, while reaching so many deep, foundational layers of the skin.
Ultherapy has been scientifically proven to significantly lift, tighten and smooth wrinkles on the face non-surgically in just a single, one-hour procedure with no downtime. At the end of one study, 82.1% of the subjects had qualitative, significant improvement, and 75.0% saw improvement in their face and/or neck as early as day ninety. For the ideal candidates with mild to moderate skin laxity, the average amount of lift was exceptional, at 45.2 mm.
You will see your facial skin look more lifted and rejuvenated gradually, most noticeably between 2-6 months after treatment, as well as over the next year. Results look natural, because Ultherapy works by targeting ultrasound waves into specific areas to trigger your body’s ability to produce collagen naturally. Ultherapy results on the face can include
- Smoothing sagging skin
- Tightening skin on the face
- Restoring lose volume
- Improving skin’s texture
- Minimizing the appearance of wrinkles
- Repairing and rejuvenating skin’s appearance.
Ulthera skin tightening may be performed up to two times a year, depending on the treatment outcome you desire and the laxity of your skin. Treatment results should be assessed after six months. A maintenance treatment is an option at this point.
Ultherapy facelift results can last up to five years. However, how long Ultherapy lasts depends on the genetic predisposition to aging and lifestyle factors of the patient. Likewise, there’s no permanent skin tightening solution, due to the natural aging process.
Ultherapy reaches the same, deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery — without the significant risks, pain and downtime associated with going under the knife. It’s a great nonsurgical alternative, especially for people not ready for surgery or for those looking to extend the benefits of a facelift.
Ultherapy has no downtime, because it bypasses the epidermis while treating skin laxity of the face through subdermal tissue coagulation. Unlike traditional surgical facelifts, Ultherapy lifts and tightens skin naturally, with no scarring and no recuperation time. Ultherapy risks, bad results and problems are less common than a cosmetic facelift. Therefore, patients are free to return to normal activity following Ultherapy treatment.
Pain is usually not reported during Ultherapy treatment; however, comfort levels are individual. Any pain or discomfort during treatment usually dissipates quickly. Our experienced and licensed technicians are highly-trained in how to make the procedure as pain-free and comfortable as possible. Most patients report that any mild discomfort experienced due to the heat of the Ultrasound energy is worth the benefit that Ultherapy treatment provides for the skin.
Most side effects from the treatment should not be cause for alarm. Specifically, symptoms are usually minor and should subside in minimal time, as a normal part of the healing process. Further, they may be alleviated with simple measures, such as Ibuprofen. Immediately following treatment, your skin may appear flushed, which usually subsides within several hours. Additionally, it is normal to experience mild tenderness, bruising and swelling after Ulthera for up to a week. Further, tingling, soreness, numbness and tenderness (especially under the jowls) may occur for up to two to three weeks.
Ultherapy is the first ever FDA cleared, non-invasive skin lifting device for use on areas of the face such as brows, jowls, eyes as well as other areas of the body. Ultherapy is a highly targeted treatment. During the procedure, our expert estheticians have the strategic advantage of being able to see treatment areas on a screen, allowing them to zero in on specific areas of concern. For example, Ultherapy for eyes can provide a subtle improvement to the lower eyelids. Further, a non-surgical brow lift can take years off your face. And did you know that Ultherapy works on other parts of the body besides the face? Clients report improvements of skin laxity when Ultherapy is used to treat the neck, décolleté, stomach and knees.
How much Ultherapy costs depends on the laxity of the skin to begin with, as well as the extent of the treatment area. For example, the Ultherapy cost for full face will be more than for an Ultherapy brow lift. To find out the Ultherapy cost in NYC, come into Smooth Synergy for a consultation.
