Frequently Asked Questions About Ultherapy
What is Ultherapy? Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen growth in the superficial and deeper muscle layer of tissue to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures? Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes only about an hour for most patients, and there is no downtime. It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which shows the layers of tissue targeted during treatment and ensures the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
How long will results last? Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual. Our board-certified Dallas dermatologists can help each patient decide the best treatments for their anti-aging needs.
Are there any side effects from Ultherapy Dallas treatments? There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. Some patients experience bruising in the application area following treatment.
