How Long Does It Take to See Results From Ultherapy®?



One common sign of aging is loose skin. You start noticing that your skin is no longer as tight as it was in the past. Most people go to every extent to get a solution to redeem their skin. Ultherapy® is a solution that guarantees everyone who uses it visible results. You can get results that will transform your skin and boost your confidence.



What Is Ultherapy?



Ultherapy is a skin tightening non-invasive treatment. It increases collagen production that firms and tightens your skin using ultrasound technology. Collagen production helps improve various aging signs on your skin.


This natural protein supports the elasticity of your skin and strengthens it. Older people have a low production of collagen as it decreases with age. The low levels make skin droop and sag. Collagen can only increase when its production increases.


The beauty industry produces so many products containing collagen. There are many creams, supplements, and serums that have collagen. Such products help promote healthy skin. But they cannot make a significant improvement to skin laxity. The only way to stimulate collagen production is by a treatment that works on natural production. Ultrasound therapy can do this successfully.



What Areas Can Ultherapy Treat?



Ultherapy is versatile as it treats various parts of your body. Most people prefer treating their faces. Other individuals treat different parts of their bodies. Some of the areas that receive treatment include:


  • Face.
  • Chin.
  • Cheeks.
  • Buttocks.
  • Knees.
  • Chest.
  • Stomach.
  • Neck.
  • Brows.
  • Décolletage


You can consult an expert about other areas of your body that you want to treat.



Initial Consultation



Ultherapy is a simple and relaxing treatment. There is no pain, and you are sure to get results. An expert should analyze your skin and the problem area. You will need to talk about any cosmetic procedure or skin tightening you have had before. Your medical history and medical information are part of the discussion.



What to Expect During and After Treatment



Once you arrive for your treatment appointment, skin cleaning is essential. After doing so, your expert will apply an ultrasound gel to the surface of your skin. A treatment applicator will then contact your skin. Doing so helps show the deep skin layers on the ultrasound imaging system. Your technician will analyze the images. Doing so helps them choose the best areas for ultrasound energy application.


The released ultrasound energy stimulates collagen production. You may feel a warm sensation throughout the treatment. The process can take 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the number of areas to treat.


Ultherapy treatment is effective and convenient. Once the process is over, you can resume your daily activities without interruptions. Your technician will give you aftercare instructions after your treatment. The instructions should not cause any disruption to your daily schedule.



How Long Will It Take to See Results?



While you may feel a difference, the final Ultherapy results take time. Your body determines the outcome. This treatment is dependent on your body and how it can produce collagen. Your body continues to create more elastin and collagen after the treatment.


As a result, the structure and foundation of your skin improve. Results vary among patients. Most people notice improvements within two to three months after their first treatment. The tightening continues improving up to six months after your initial treatment.
