What Is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a noninvasive treatment that has been FDA approved to diminish lines and wrinkles of the décolletage and to lift the skin of the brow, under the chin, and on the neck. The procedure uses focused ultrasound waves to boost collagen production in the deeper layers of skin. Because it also incorporates ultrasound imaging, Ultherapy allows practitioners to view the tissue layers they are treating for optimal delivery of the ultrasound energy.

How does Ultherapy work?

In an Ultherapy procedure, focused ultrasound energy is delivered to the foundational layer of the skin (the layer typically addressed in plastic surgery) without damaging or disrupting the surface of the skin. The right amount of energy is delivered at the right depth to heat the area to a precise temperature to stimulate a natural healing response. This jumpstarts a regenerative process that includes accelerated collagen production.

Results appear gradually over the next two to three months or longer, as new collagen begins to lift and tighten the skin. Ultherapy produces subtle but significant results, so you look like yourself, only better.

Am I a good Candidate for Ultherapy?

Ultherapy has been approved by the FDA for performing non-surgical brow lift, non-surgical chin and neck lift, and for improving lines, wrinkles, and rejuvenating aging skin on the décolletage. This advanced treatment has proven to be a great option for women and men who want to rejuvenate their facial appearance without undergoing surgery. This treatment may be recommended if you struggle with:

  • Mild to moderate facial wrinkles
  • Neck laxity
  • Lowered brow line
  • Sagging eyelids
  • Loose skin under the chin
  • Lines and wrinkles in the upper chest

Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of facelift surgery and may not be recommended for those with more severe skin laxity and facial sagging. However, it may be the ideal treatment if you are seeking a subtle lift and a more refreshed, naturally youthful appearance of the face, neck, and upper chest.

How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?

Most people will require 1 treatment a year to restore and prevent collagen loss and see improved lifting and tightening of the face.

Ultherapy treatment stimulates your body to produce collagen. This collagen proliferation phase can last up to 1 year out from treatment. We love that a single treatment helps your body restore its skin elasticity for an entire year, Most patients notice improvement after 3-6 months from their treatment. Those patients looking for even more improvement for more advanced laxity may have a 6 month “booster” treatment performed.

Experience a Mini Lift in areas where you need it the most

The mouth and eye area are among the first to start showing fine lines and skin laxity.

The Brow Lift

Lifting the brow both centrally and laterally can restore youthfulness to the eye area. The Ultherapy brow lift is one of the most popular treatments for both men and women at ZL. The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and rarely is any numbing or pain relief needed. Results are often visible as early as 2 months and last for up to 2 years. This is often combined with a Botox brow lift for even more lifting.

The Lip Lift

The lip lift includes the area surrounding the mouth where we often see fine lines forming. Lifting and tightening the skin around mouth can even make the lips look fuller. We often use ultherapy prior to filler in an aging lip to support additional volume and maintaining a natural appearance. The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. Slight swelling may be present along the upper lip for 48 hours.

The Chin Tuck

A focused treatment to firm up the skin just under the chin. A double chin occurring later in life responds extremely well to our intensive lifting and tightening treatment. This treatment is also an excellent compliment to CoolSculpting mini under the chin. The chin tuck treatment takes just under an hour and has minimal to no downtime.

How is Ultherapy procedure performed?

At our luxurious facility, comfort is always a priority. Before your procedure begins, we will take the necessary steps to make your treatment comfortable. We will then clean and apply ultrasound gel to the treatment areas.

We place the Ultherapy device against your skin, using ultrasound imaging to adjust the settings of the device. Ultrasound energy is delivered to the targeted areas to jumpstart collagen production, to lift and tighten the skin over time. Depending on the number of areas treated, an Ultherapy treatment requires about 90 minutes to complete.

What does Ultherapy treatment feel like?

Comfort matters at ZL MedAesthetics. Our numbing and pain management strategies set us apart from other practices, and we have experience in making treatment more comfortable for our clients.

During the procedure, you will feel small amounts of ultrasound energy, which many patients describe as a deep heat sensation, being delivered to precise depths. The beauty of Ultherapy is that it the energy delivered can be altered to suit you as an individual.

What is recovery like after Ultherapy?

Ultherapy uses sound waves to stimulate your body’s collagen production. No needles, scalpels, lasers, or heat are ever involved in the is treatment. This is a treatment suitable for all skin types. You can expect an inflammatory period following the treatment which includes mid swelling, tenderness, numbness and rarely bruising. You can reapply your makeup right away and be on with your day.

How soon will I see results after Ultherapy treatment?

The results of Ultherapy treatments appear gradually over the next several months, as collagen continues to be produced at an increased rate. When the final results appear, you can expect to see noticeable improvement in skin tone and elasticity, along with a subtle lift in the areas treated.

Does Ultherapy replace injectables?

No, it does not completely replace the need for fillers and Botox, but the two treatments complement each other. It is a misconception that fillers can significantly lift the soft tissue of the face, in fact it would take a large amount of filler to achieve enough lift and often can look unnatural . Instead, we prefer to lift with ultherapy and fill hollowing with facial fillers for the most natural looking result. Think of Ultherapy as the foundation. It is recommended to do Ultherapy first, followed by injectables. We discuss these options in depth during consultations.
