How Does Ultherapy Work: Can It Turn Back Time?

You walk into a clinic, have a non-invasive procedure, walk out less than an hour later and in the following months you keep looking younger and younger. You can reportedly shave off 5-10 years off your looks. Some say even 20 years. Is this hype or real? Exactly how does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that lifts the skin and submental tissue of the face and neck. It basically tightens the skin around your brows, chin, neck, and decolletage.

Who Would Want Ultherapy And Why?

In our childhood, our faces are well-oiled, shiny, and smooth. That’s because we’re continually producing collagen, among other proteins. Collagen is a structural protein that gives our skin elasticity and strength, and works to replace dead cells.

When we get to our 30s, collagen production stops and we lose residual collagen by at least 1% per year. This means we are replacing less dead skin cells and at a slower rate. As a result, our skin starts looking crepey, saggy, and wrinkled. By the time we’re in our 40s, 50s, and beyond, our faces are full of lines and jowls of droopy skin. This is when we need a facelift procedure to restore skin tightness and elasticity.

How Does Ultherapy Work To Restore Youthful Looks

The best way to shock your body into producing more collagen is by subjecting your skin to some damage. Most procedures do this using heat and microneedling.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to send pulses that penetrate at least 4mm below the skin surface. The ultrasound bypasses the top skin layers delivering focused energy to the foundational layers. This triggers a response that stimulates the regeneration of collagen proteins.

The focused ultrasound energy jumpstarts a natural body process known as Neocollagenesis. Neocollagenesis continues weeks after treatment, and in 2 to 3 months there will be a clinically significant lift of tissue.

By delivering focused energy, the body is tricked into regenerating much more collagen than was damaged. Collagen proteins take between 4 and 10 weeks to grow. The Ultherapy stimulus causes an extended regeneration process that lasts anywhere between 3 and 6 months. So expect a fuller face with tightened skin from 2 to 6 months.

How many Ultherapy treatments are needed? Top experts recommend at least 18 months in between treatments for completely healthy individuals. If you indulge in alcohol and smoking or endure high UV exposure, you may need more frequent treatment.

Why Is Ultherapy So Popular?

Ultherapy prominently stands out as the only FDA-cleared device for non-invasive skin tightening on the face, neck, submental area, and chest area. But that’s not the only thing that attracted over 526,000 patients to the procedure in 2016 in the US alone. There are so many reasons Ultherapy is a leading choice for cosmetic skin tightening.

  • Natural results: The procedure works by stimulating the body’s natural response to regenerating collagen production.
  • The procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive
  • No anesthesia needed. Mild painkillers for very sensitive people may be used.
  • Minimal preparation. Maintain regular work, exercise, and eating routines.
  • Minimal recovery times, with most patients resuming normal schedules straight out of the doctor’s office.
  • High efficacy and satisfaction rates. Over 67% of patients reported being satisfied or very satisfied 90 days after treatment.
  • Minimal and minor side effects that only last a few hours before self-resolving.

Truth Uncovered: How Does Ultherapy Work

Now you know the basics of how the whole ultherapy procedure works. It’s the first and so far the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for diminishing wrinkles in the hard-to-target chest, neck, and chin areas.

The procedure works by stimulating collagen production. This makes for stronger, more elastic, healthier, and younger-looking skin with faster replacement of dead skin. Effects can be visible 4 weeks after treatment. However,  the best results are visible from the 4th to the 6th month. Talk to a board-certified Ultherapy expert for more details today.
