The Individual Who Doesn’t Want to Undergo a Facelift
You may have had friends or family members who have undergone a facelift. While you may agree that their results are impressive, you are also aware of all that’s involved in such a procedure, from the surgery to the recovery time, and as a result, you’re just not ready to commit to that.

However, this treatment was designed for the average person. While celebrities do love it for its powerful ability to attack the signs of aging, you don’t have to be a celebrity or a famous person to qualify for this treatment.

Most people begin to notice the signs of aging in their 30’s.

The Mature Adult
If you have mature skin that shows the signs of aging through moderate to severe sagging and drooping skin, as well as lines and wrinkles, this treatment will help your skin feel more youthful and more refreshed than ever. You may have thought that a facelift was is the only way to truly lift your skin, and while this treatment does not replicate a facelift, it is the closest, non-invasive alternative on the beauty market.
What Exactly Is Ultherapy?
How Does It Work?
The device utilized during this treatment uses the thermal energy within the ultrasound device to stimulate the deep layers of the skin. The body reacts to this process by creating new collagen in the areas treated. It addresses the layers of the skin that are typically dealt with during a facelift, but it does not damage the surface of the skin in any way during the process.
This treatment relies heavily upon the ultrasound device which creates the thermal effect beneath the skin and the body responds by increasing collagen production. As the ultrasound bypasses the surface of the skin, it focuses on the deeper layers and lifts them. It involves no invasive measures, no downtime, no harsh chemicals, no toxins, just your body, and the natural reaction that occurs when collagen production is stimulated.
Is It Only for the Face?
While the face is one of the most common areas of treatment, ultherapy also lifts and improves the appearance of the skin on the chin, the brows, and the neck. It also improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the upper part of the chest that is most noticeable when you wear lower cut dresses and shirts.
What Happens During a Treatment?
During treatment, ultrasound gel is applied topically to the area undergoing treatment, and then the device is placed on that area. Your technician will be able to view the area through digital imaging on a screen that reveals the deep layers of your skin. This allows for precision during treatment. It is also what makes this treatment fully customizable so that the technician can view the areas in need of treatment and zone in on those specific areas during the session.
The Power of Collagen
While many companies offer topical collagen in the form of serums and creams, the only truly proven method of reducing the signs of aging with collagen is by stimulating the body’s ability to induce collagen. As the aging process occurs, collagen production decreases every year that goes by and the body begins to need help to keep producing that collagen, and that’s just what this treatment can do.
Collagen production takes time, but once it begins and the results begin to show up in your treatment area, you will not miss them. You will see your face lift and tighten and you feel more youthful than you have in years.
How Long Does a Session Take?
The total length of this treatment is far shorter than any facelift. Treatments take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes and then once complete, you are free to leave and resume your day as normal. This treatment is accessible and can easily be scheduled at a time that is most convenient for you. You won’t have to plan your day or week around the treatment or any downtime.
What Does It Feel Like?
Most people do not report any discomfort from this treatment. You may feel a warming effect on your skin but you can relax during the process, pain-free, and know that the best is yet to come. Once you complete your treatment all you have to do is patiently await your results, and once they arrive you will realize that they were well worth the wait.
When Will I See Results?
The benefit of this treatment is that results appear gradually. You may notice an initial collagen boost in the first few days following treatment, but your full results will appear within six months of treatment. Most patients begin to notice results after two to three months and continue to see those results improve up to six months post-treatment. Every day that passes after your treatment is one day closer to seeing the results of your skin transformation.
You won’t walk out looking drastically different which, if you don’t want anyone to know about your treatment, is a good thing. You will get to enjoy your results as they appear in the months following treatment and no one will know that you underwent an anti-aging treatment. They will just notice that you look more youthful and your skin appears lifted but in a natural way. You will still look completely like yourself, just younger and more rested.
