Questions About the Procedure

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to trigger the body’s regenerative response. This stimulates collagen production, which lifts and tightens the skin. The procedure is effective for the neck, eyebrow, under the chin, and the décolletage area. It is the only FDA cleared non-surgical method for delivering these results.

What is the difference between Ultherapy and laser treatments?

Laser treatments use light energy, but this energy does not reach the deeper skin levels. For this reason, it only works on the surface and is not FDA cleared for lifting the skin. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy, which can be used to treat deeper layers of tissue. The therapy stimulates collagen production in the foundational layers of the skin.

How is collagen production stimulated?

The ultrasound energy is focused beneath the surface of the skin at the ideal temperature for collagen regeneration. This helps trigger the natural collagen production process without the use of fillers, toxins, or creams.

How long does the treatment take?

The exact length of the treatment will depend on the area or areas being treated. The neck and face procedure takes between an hour and 90 minutes, while the décolletage area can be treated in about a half hour.

How does Ultherapy feel?

During treatment, you will feel small amounts of energy. Generally, the sensation only lasts during treatment and the level of comfort or irritation varies widely from person to person.

How many treatments are needed?

For most people, one treatment is sufficient for producing the desired result, although some may need more than one. As the skin continues to age, touch up treatments can be beneficial.

Cost, Safety, & Results

Does this procedure work like a facelift?

While Ultherapy directs ultrasound energy to the foundational layer of the skin, it will not produce the same results as a facelift. However, this procedure is effective for those not interested in surgery or people who want to extend the effects of surgery.

Should I take time off from work?

This procedure has no downtime, so you can resume all your normal activities immediately after treatment.

How long will it take to see results?

Many people see some initial effect shortly after treatment. However, it takes about two or three months for your body to regenerate collagen and show visible results.

Are there any side effects?

The side effects of Ultherapy may include:

  • Flushed skin for a few hours after treatment

  • Slight swelling

  • Tenderness

  • Tingling

  • Temporary bruising

  • Numbness

These effects are temporary and resolve quickly for most patients.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Ideal candidates for the procedure are people with mild to moderate laxity in the skin. The best way to determine if Ultherapy is right for you is to schedule a free consultation. During your consultation, you can learn more about the procedure, discover if you are a good candidate, and get answers to Cookeville Ultherapy FAQ not answered here.
