An Overview of Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure to reduce skin laxity in the face and neck with the help of ultrasound technology. This innovative procedure can lift and tighten sagging skin without involving any surgical incision, needles, or foreign objects. Ultherapy works in two ways by strengthening the existing collagen layer underneath the skin as well as stimulating the generation of new collagen to make the skin tighter, fuller, and smoother. The treatment employs ultrasound imaging, which enables the patient to see the areas of tissue that are being treated.

People in their thirties or forties with mild to moderate skin laxity in the neck or face are usually ideal candidates for Ultherapy. However, this procedure is not a substitute for facelift surgery. It is an alternative for people who may not be willing to undergo a surgical procedure. The treatment can also be useful for people who have undergone a facelift in the past, and wish to prolong its impact. The treatment does not involve any significant side effects or downtime, and can be performed even without local anesthesia, depending on the patient’s pain tolerance.

A Patient’s Experience with Ultherapy

The following is a first person account of a patient who chose to undergo Ultherapy at a relatively late age of 52. This is her personal story about why she chose it, and how she felt about the outcome. Identity of the patient is withheld to maintain confidentiality.

“I’m 52, but I believe I do not look more than 45. I have looked after skin all through my adult life, but age seems to have caught up with me, and my skin is sagging around the jaw and neck. I did not wish to undergo the knife or general anesthesia, so I chose Ultherapy. The signs of aging on my face and neck had not bothered me until one day I came across some of two decades old pictures in my closet, and thought to myself: “I looked quite beautiful back then.” That’s when I promised myself that I would do everything I could to take care of my appearance, and not surrender so abjectly to the aging process as I had been doing until then.

I did some online research and came across Ulthera as a non-surgical procedure that suited my needs for facial rejuvenation. I met a cosmetic surgeon, who explained to me all the pros and cons of this treatment in comparison to other surgical and non-surgical options. When finally I was ready for an Ultrasound Lift, the doctor discussed with me whether to perform the procedure with or without local anesthesia.

I decided to go for it without local anesthesia. My doctor advised me to take two pills of ibuprofen an hour ahead of the procedure. The entire procedure lasted for a little more than an hour. The doctor and her assistant worked on my face and neck. I relaxed comfortably with a blanket to cover my knees, while the ultrasound wand worked on various parts of my face. The doctor asked me intermittently if I was comfortable. Only when they applied the UF wand to my neck, I felt a slight stinging sensation.

I do not have much fat on my face due to collagen depletion with aging, which seemed to make my treatment slightly uncomforting. I was told that layers of fat tissue on the face can cushion the impact and make the treatment less painful. The doctor had to apply all her skills to apply the UF close to my facial bone for the best results, while making every effort to keep me comfortable. Once the procedure got over, the doctor reminded me about using sunscreen for a few weeks. She told me to expect gradual results over a period of next three to four months.

However, my first reaction when I saw my face and neck in the mirror was: “I look great! I guess this treatment works.” I hardly noticed any bruising or swelling as I had been warned about. Several months have passed since the day of my treatment. I do not know how others perceive me, but to me I look better. Has Ultherapy changed my life? Certainly not. I don’t think any treatment can do that. But it has certainly made me feel better about myself and raised my self-esteem.”

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy or Ultrasound Lift is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure to tighten loose skin in the face and neck area. The treatment makes use of ultrasound technology to lift and tighten drooping skin. It performs a dual action of supporting the existing layer of collagen in the skin as well as stimulates the production of new collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. Without involving any cuts or needles, the ultrasound waves penetrate into the targeted deeper layers.

See Ultherna Before & After Photos

People in their thirties or forties, who suffer from mild to moderate skin laxity in the facial and neck area are usually superb or ideal candidates for Ultherapy. However, it is important to remember that Ultherapy is not a substitute for facelift surgery. It is an effective alternative for patients who are either unwilling or unable to receive surgical treatment. It is typically used to lift skin around the neck, chin, and eyebrows.

How does it work?

The goal of Ultherapy is to penetrate the deeper layers of the dermis to achieve longer lasting skin tightening effect. It delivers ultrasound frequency in controlled phases to the deeper layers to induce collagen production. The focused ultrasound energy heats up the deeper layers in targeted pockets to stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen helps improve skin elasticity, tightens the sagging areas, and adds more volume to make the skin appear smoother, fuller, and tighter.

For most effective results, a patient may have to undergo two to three treatment sessions of Ultherapy. However, the extent and frequency of treatment may vary depending on the patient’s individual needs. Effects of the treatment can last for up to a year or longer. Follow up treatments can be received after a year to extend the results for longer periods.

Procedure

At the initial consultation stage, the doctor will evaluate the current health status, age, medical history, and extent of skin laxity. The doctor will also carefully understand the unique needs and expectations of the patient regarding skin tightening and improvement in appearance. Depending on the assessment, a treatment of Ultherapy may be recommended. The doctor will explain the procedure and benefits in detail, and may show before and after images of other patients to ensure the patient has realistic expectations from the procedure.

The doctor will mark the targeted area that needs to be treated with Ultherapy. Treatment of the full face and neck may require a little over an hour. If the area to be treated is lesser, the procedure can be completed in a shorter time period. The procedure is completely non-invasive and involves no incisions or injections. However, the pain threshold level of each patient may vary. If a patient shows signs of anxiety or has a low tolerance to pain, the doctor may advise local anesthesia to improve comfort levels during the procedure.

The treatment is typically administered on the neck, brows and beneath the chin, but it can also be performed on other areas where skin elasticity is weak. The treatment is not designed to cause a radical change in appearance. The goal is to rev up the skin on the inside in a healthy and natural way so that the outcome is visible on the outside. Best results with Ultherapy are usually seen after three treatment sessions.

Different from Laser Therapy

Ultrasound therapy works in a different way compared to the traditional laser skin tightening procedures. Laser therapy primarily targets the external layers of the skin, but Ultrasound Lift involves the delivery of ultrasound frequency into the deepest skin layers. It bypasses the top layers of the skin and avoids any serious damage to healthy skin.

The goal is to deliver maximum energy to the collagen layers of the skin so that the process of new collagen formulation is initiated. The principle involved in Ultherapy is the same as what is used in fat melting ultrasound based devices. A brow lift is one of the most popular uses of Ultherapy for people who do not wish to undergo a brow lift surgery.

Downtime and Side Effects

Ultherapy does not have any of the usual risks or side effects associated with surgery. It may cause mild redness and soreness in the skin that may last for a few days. But a patient can return to work immediately after the treatment, and there is no specific downtime involved.
