Ultherapy Q & A

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten your skin. Specifically, it’s approved to treat skin laxity and wrinkles on your:

  • Brow
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Chest

If you have drooping eyebrows, sagging jowls, creases on your neck, or wrinkles across your chest, Ultherapy is specifically designed to help.

This treatment uses ultrasound energy to reach through the surface of your skin and trigger transformation at the lower layers. This produces a lifting and tightening effect without the need for a single incision or injection. 

In fact, it’s the only noninvasive, FDA-cleared procedure to deliver skin tightening and lift in the areas that, by design, it targets.

What is the science behind Ultherapy?

During Ultherapy treatment, Dr. Harrison moves the Ultherapy device over the surface of your skin. As it moves, the device delivers ultrasound energy that bypasses your skin’s surface and focuses into the lower levels of your skin. 

This energy triggers your body’s production of new collagen, the protein that helps your skin stay taut, elastic, and lifted. Because the ultrasound energy kickstarts your body’s natural collagen production process, it’s a safe and effective way to turn back the clock. 

Over the next few months, you watch your results improve as your body builds a new network of collagen, leaving you with tighter, more structured skin in the treated area.

What should I expect during Ultherapy?

You relax as Dr. Harrison treats the areas you want to target. Your treatment lasts between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area you want to address.

Does Ultherapy hurt?

Some patients are sensitive to discomfort. PRO-NOX, a patient-controlled comfort measure using the time-tested combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen, commonly known as “laughing gas,” is available.

It takes effect in seconds, offering immediate relief of pain and anxiety.  Unlike general anesthetics that leave you feeling groggy for hours, the effects of PRO-NOX fade away quickly. In addition to reducing discomfort, this technology also puts you at ease.

Many patients avoid cosmetic treatments because of nervousness, and PRO-NOX helps to alleviate those fears.

What should I expect after my Ultherapy treatment?

This treatment is completely noninvasive and is designed with your comfort in mind. You can continue on with your day immediately after Ultherapy. There is no downtime with this innovative procedure.

While many noninvasive treatments require multiple sessions to deliver meaningful results, Ultherapy is different. You need just one session to trigger a transformation in your skin that can last a year or more. That said, some patients benefit from repeat sessions for even greater results.

If sagging, wrinkled skin is making you look older than you feel, visit Sky Vein & Aesthetics for Ultherapy. Call the office or schedule your appointment online.
