If you’d like to achieve the benefits of a facelift but you’re not quite ready for surgery, Ultherapy may be the treatment for you. Ultherapy is commonly referred to as the non-surgical facelift, because it produces dramatic facial rejuvenation results. But how does it work, and is there any downtime with Ultherapy.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. It is FDA cleared for use on the face, neck, and décolletage. Ultherapy is an effective way to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
How Ultherapy works
The ultrasound energy is delivered into the deep layers of facial tissue, where it jumpstarts collagen production, and initiates the body’s healing response. This results in tighter, smoother skin over time.
Treatment time varies from 20-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Ultherapy is a one-time treatment that provides long-term benefits. It typically takes 2-3 months to see the final results.
Is there downtime associated with Ultherapy?
No, there is no downtime associated with Ultherapy, so if you’re looking to rejuvenate your appearance without having to take time off from work, Ultherapy may be the right procedure for you (click here to learn more).
Since Ultherapy is a completely non-invasive procedure there is no downtime, so patients can return to their normal activities right away. However, after treatmentthe skin may be somewhat red for about an hour or so, and there may also be some slight swelling.
