Got Ultherapy questions? We got you covered! Ultherapy is a dermatological procedure that is catching the eye of many women and men around the Torrance, California area. This is because it is a great non-surgical alternative to getting an invasive, expensive facelift done.
So, what is it? Ultherapy is an ultrasound technology that uses heat energy to pulse through the skin and into the muscles to help stimulate collagen production on the face, neck, and chest areas. Stimulating the collagen in those muscles will tighten your skin and improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines and the sagging of aging skin. You can even get Ultherapy for your upper eye areas if you feel that your brow has drooped.
Now that you know what Ultherapy is let’s dive into the 3 most common Ultherapy questions that clients ask!
1. How Long Does Ultherapy Last?
The treatment is quick and can come with quick results. However, if you see the amazing results you probably want to know how long does Ultherapy last. Your Ultherapy session usually lasts from 45 minutes to 90 minutes – depending on the area you are getting treated. If you are looking to have Ultherapy done on your chest’s sagging skin, this usually takes 30 minutes to complete. However, getting the treatment done on your face and/or neck will usually take from 45 to 90 minutes to complete.
The best part is that there is almost no downtime after the Ultherapy treatment. You can go right back to living your life as you usually would.
2. How Painful Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is not very painful to have done. You may feel a little bit of heat and a tingling sensation, but nothing more than that. If you are someone that does not tolerate pain well, then your doctor can give you pain medication before the treatment to ensure your comfort.
You may have some soreness in the areas treated for a couple of days after the session, but this is also manageable with pain medication. The area you have had treatment on may become red and swollen, sometimes accompanied by bruising, but these side effects will also subside in the days after the treatment.
3. Are Ultherapy Results Permanent?
Ultherapy results depend on the patient; however, they usually last a whole year. Some people choose to come back after six months for a shorter session, a little top-up. On the other hand, many people only come back once every two years for maintenance.
Of course, this depends on your age, how your body responds to the treatment, and what your skin was like when you first came in. However, you will notice Ultherapy results within days of the treatment, and they only keep improving in the few months following. This is because your body is producing new collagen that Ulthera had stimulated.
