8 Things You Should Know About Ultherapy


Ultherapy, which means (Ultrasound Therapy) is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment used to improve, lift, and tighten loose skin and wrinkles. This is usually done on the face and other parts of the body where loose skin occurs. The treatment, due to its natural stimulation, is valued by many as a reliable alternative to other cosmetic procedures. Though the procedure is popular, many people don’t know some vital things they should know about Ultherapy before opting for the procedure.

To help people understand this cutting-edge procedure more, we have created this blog post that discusses the top things you should know about Ultherapy before going for it.

The Technology is FDA Approved

The Ultherapy technology is FDA approved and is being offered by thousands of global medical and cosmetic professionals. Since its FDA approval, not up to a decade ago, hundreds of thousands of individuals have undergone the procedure. At the moment, it’s among the top FDA-cleared procedure for lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, face, eyebrows, and chest.

Ultherapy is not a Laser

Ultherapy, just like the name sounds, uses ultrasound technology. While Lasers work on the skin from the “outside-in,” the Ultherapy technology works from the “inside-out.” It moves past the surface of the skin to penetrate deep within the skin tissues, and it leaves no mark or scars. The technology non-invasively lifts and tightens the skin without disturbing the skin surface.

Cost of Ultherapy

Compared to other non-invasive “facial” procedures Ultherapy can seem expensive.  The average cost for the procedure ranges between $2000-$4000 for a full-face therapy and can increase or decrease depending on the parts of the body to be treated. However, when you weigh the benefits of improving your own collagen from the “inside-out” the treatment is well worth the cost as we are affecting real change in the youthful appearance of the face.

The procedure uses your Body’s Natural Healing Process

Ultherapy uses your body’s natural healing process to tighten and lift your skin. It stimulates the deep structural support layers beneath the skin’s surface. This leads to the body producing fresh new collagen, which leads to the lifting and tightening effect.

No Recovery Time; No Downtime

Because Ultherapy is neither invasive nor surgical, the recovery time is almost immediate. You’re free to go about your normal activities after the procedure. The levels of side effect and discomfort that’s experienced after the procedure are different for each patient but are not significant enough to affect your daily schedule.

Some People Experience Short Term, Mild Side Effects

Side effects of Ultherapy are rare, and when they do appear, they are usually insignificant. Some of the expected side effects include numbness at the target area, mild swelling, bruising, etc. The swelling is sometimes reported to last up to 2 weeks, however, can be managed by applying ice packs to the swollen area.

Results Usually Appear Over 2-3 months

Since Ultherapy is a natural and gradual process, it takes a little while before you see the full results. This is because it uses the body’s natural reaction and healing process. Optimal skin lifting and tightening results are usually noticed about 2-3 months after the procedure. In some instances, the results can continue improving until about 5-7 months after treatment.

The Results Last Long

The most appreciated thing about this procedure is that the results last longer. It’s usually a one-time thing as the results last for many years following a single treatment. Just one 60-90 minutes treatment is all that’s needed to see great lasting results. The patient’s body and aging process also play a role in determining how long the treatment lasts.


Conclusively, the procedure is recommended for all skin types, and there’s no preparation required before the procedure. All you need to do is decide, walk into the clinic, and get your therapy.

However, we advise you to go to an expert to avoid unnecessary complications resulting from incompetence. Preparing yourself mentally and committing to the entire treatment process and recovery will enable you to have an excellent experience.
