The New Year is the perfect time to consider Ultherapy. Turn the clock back up to ten years with no surgery or downtime! Seem to good to be true? Keep reading to find out more. Leading Physician Dr. Jeff Viscomi at Docere Medical Spa & Laser Center answers some common questions regarding Ultherapy, and how you can achieve a fresher, tighter more youthful look.
Q: What is Ultherapy?
A: Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure for the face and neck that stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to lift the skin over time. The use of FDA-cleared ultrasound technology enables physicians, for the first time, to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin – typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
It is an ideal cosmetic procedure for those looking for natural yet noticeable results.
Q: How does this procedure work if it’s non-invasive?
A: Ultherapy uses two beams of ultra sound that pass through the skin. With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months, as new, stronger collagen and elastin are created. Further improvements can even appear up to six months following a procedure as this collagen-building process continues.
Q: Will it hurt?
A: Some clients experience virtually no pain, while others have a more heightened sense of discomfort. Our staff will work with you to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
Q: How does Ultherapy differ from laser treatments?
A: Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Lasers cannot reach the deeper layers at an optimal temperature without causing excessive damage to the superficial layers.
Q: Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?
A: While the results do not duplicate those of surgery, Ultherapy’s gradual improvements make it a compelling option for people who have mild to moderate skin laxity as well as those who want to “stay ahead of the game” and those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Q: Is there any downtime after the procedure?
A: The treatment typically takes around 90-minutes. After the procedure there are no restrictions. You can use makeup, exercise, and continue your day-to-day activities.
Q: When can I expect to see results?
A: The ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.
