Ultherapy Non Invasive Lift
Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts
the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy uses the body's
own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow,
under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décollete.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the
real results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift
and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on
the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift,
it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not
ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish
to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering
focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically
addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the
surface of the skin. Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other
technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin
to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and
the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the
skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.

Q: What is unique about Ultherapy?
A: Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually
lift skin. Ultherapy is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound
imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted
during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will
be most beneficial. With the addition of the new Ultherapy® Décolletage
Treatment, Ultherapy is also now the only non-invasive procedure specifically
indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Q: How does Ultherapy differ from other laser treatments?
A: Ultherapy uses sound energy - tried-and-true ultrasound - which has
unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat
depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy
ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin's foundation,
resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.
Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at
an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat superficial
skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.
Q: How does Ultherapy stimulate the creation of collagen?
A: Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at
the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts
a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen.
Ultherapy doesn't involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies
on your body's own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
Q: Will I see results? How long will they last?
A: After your Ultherapy® Treatment, you may see some initial effect,
but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body
naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own
collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you.
The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging
process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on
Q: How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?
A: Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree
of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual's
collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments.
Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients
keep pace with the body's natural aging process.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: The 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 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, there
is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will
review with you.
Q: Who is a good candidate for this treatment?
A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin
begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow
line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles
on the chest. Schedule at complimentary consultation at SpaDerma to find
out if Ultherapy is right for you.
