Ultherapy is a unique ultrasound-based cosmetic treatment approved by the FDA in 2009 for facial rejuvenation. It is the perfect alternative neck or facelift that is non-invasive in nature. If you are bothered about deep wrinkles and sagging skin but do not wish to undergo surgery, this safe and free from side-effects treatment is the perfect solution for you.

Ultherapy procedure – What should you expect?

The Ultherapy procedure takes around 30 to 90 minutes on average. The duration of the procedure depends upon the number of regions of the face you wish to treat and whether you want to target your neck in one session as well.

If you are targeting the chest region, the session takes about 30 minutes only. However, if you wish to rejuvenate your whole face, you need an hour to complete this procedure. If you want to target both the neck and the face area, the time for the procedure takes about 90 minutes or so.

What should you expect?

During the first consultation, the doctor will consult you about the regions of your face and body that you want to target and discuss how much time you have in your hands to get them treated.  You can even treat your face and neck in an hour on one day and get the following procedure done on your chest on the next day if you want to.

What are the most common areas targeted for treatment?

The Ultherapy treatment is also popularly known as a “lunchtime facelift,” as it can be completed in an hour. It lifts sagging skin in both the lower and the middle areas of your skin, including the chin, jawline, and cheeks. However, it is different from a conventional facelift and can be used for targeting areas of concern, especially in the upper part of the face with severe wrinkles on your forehead and eyebrows that are drooping in nature.

Popular areas of treatment

Men resort to Ultherapy for targeting the upper face, lower area of the face, and the neck.  However, the procedure is widely popular among women to treat thedécolletage or the upper chest region that is generally exposed when you wear shirts with a low cut. Since the skin area is thin, it is generally one of the first parts of the body that succumbs to the signs of old age. However, since the skin in this region is thin, it lends to a quicker session despite being a large area.

In the Ultherapy procedure, the area that is being targeted for treatment should be cleaned with a good antiseptic. In case you come to the appointment with makeup or other cosmetics, it will be removed from your skin. The ultrasound gel is later applied to the skin, and after the device is placed against this gel, the doctor will customize the settings of the device against the thickness of the skin to determine how deep this energy should be delivered.
