A More Customized Lift

Ultrasound technology lets practitioners see where they treat, ensuring energy is delivered safely to the right areas.1,3

 

While Ultherapy does not completely duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, it’s a great alternative for patients not ready for surgery or for those who want to continue building collagen after a surgical lift.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long does a treatment take?

The length of the treatment will depend on the area(s) being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face* and neck procedure takes 60–90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

Will I need to take time off?

After an Ultherapy® procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.

When will I see results?

You may see some initial eff ects, but the ultimate results will take place over 2–3 months, as tired collagen is replaced by the growth of new collagen.

What does the treatment feel like?

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited, indicating that the collagen-building process has begun. Comfort levels vary, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. Most patients leave feeling comfortable and excited about the results to come.
