If you’ve been looking into medical spa treatments that help with skin rejuvenation, you may have found some information about Ultherapy. While there are many popular routes to take for tightening and rejuvenating the skin, Ultherapy is definitely one to look into.

We’ll discuss the basics of it in our blog today, but you can also find more information directly from the official Ultherapy website or by visiting our Ultherapy page. If you’re looking for a skin rejuvenation treatment that’s non-invasive and doesn’t require any downtime, schedule a consultation with us today at Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa in Peoria.

What To Know About Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment performed at a medical spa by highly-trained technicians. It uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen in order the help plump and tighten skin on the brow, face, neck, and décolletage.

Ultrasound has been safely used in medical procedures since the 1950s. It’s now an FDA-approved treatment option to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works gradually to give you a naturally youthful appearance over time. And since it stimulates the production of collagen in your skin, there are no artificial materials used — your skin is naturally more beautiful all on its own.

When To Choose Ultherapy

There are a variety of skin rejuvenation procedures worth looking into, but Ultherapy is a great option for those who are beginning to notice their skin relaxing but do not want to have a surgical facelift. Typically, people in their 30s or older are great candidates for Ultherapy, as their skin is just starting to feel and appear less firm.

Ultherapy can also be used as a way to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to skin aging. Since the procedure is safe and helps with collagen production, it’s a great way to maintain radiant and tight skin even before it starts to relax.

What To Expect During And After The Procedure

Before you go through an Ultherapy session, you’ll need to have a consultation with one of our trained medical spa practitioners. They can help you decide whether or not Ultherapy is the best path for skin rejuvenation. If you’re a good candidate, they’ll help determine which areas of your face, neck, and décolletage would benefit best from Ultherapy.

Since Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure, you don’t need to be worried about any pain or discomfort during the procedure. You won’t need anesthesia or any topical numbing agents (though if you would like numbing cream, we are happy to provide it!). You may feel your skin being stimulated as the ultrasound energy is deposited into the deeper layers of your skin. Don’t worry, this sensation only lasts during the treatment. This sensation will also vary depending on the  person, as well as where on the body the Ultherapy is being performed.

After treatment, you may notice that your skin is a little red, but this should subside in just a few hours. You may also notice some swelling, tenderness, and a slight tingling sensation, but these are all normal effects and will go away quickly.

Being a non-invasive, safe procedure with minimal side effects, Ultherapy doesn’t require any downtime or special post-treatment measures. This allows you to get right back to your day without needing to take any additional time off. No one will even know you had any work done!

You can expect to see results gradually appear over two to three months — and up to six months after treatment — as your body starts to produce more collagen.

How Ultherapy Compares To Other Treatments

Ultherapy is one skin rejuvenation treatment that can easily target specific areas of the face and body because it uses ultrasound imaging to see the different layers of skin. With this comprehensive information, your Ultherapy technician will be able to target specific layers with the ultrasound energy for better results.

Ultherapy also targets the deepest layers of skin to stimulate new collagen production, compared to laser therapy which can only target the upper layers of skin and is not FDA-approved to lift skin.

Though the results are not as significant as a surgical facelift, Ultherapy is a great option for treatment because it targets deeper layers of skin than any other non-invasive treatment.
