Ultherapy is a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift and the procedure is aimed at giving you more of a youthful look. It reduces the signs of aging, such as wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest, as well as drooping skin. It is currently the only least invasive method approved by the FDA to tighten loose skin by stimulating collagen production. This procedure utilizes focused ultrasound energy to target areas beneath the skin and uses the right temperature to support collagen regeneration. The heat energy from the applicator affects three layers: muscle, skin, and superficial wrinkles.
Before the procedure, you will need to remove makeup and other skincare products from the target area. You may take pain-reducing anti-inflammatory medication, but make sure to ask your provider before doing so. The procedure starts with cleaning your skin with an alcohol swab to kill any germs and a specialized gel is applied on to your skin. Then, the Ultherapy device is placed against your skin an ultrasound viewer is used to adjust the device to the appropriate settings. Ultrasound energy is delivered to the targeted areas. The device produces thermal effects that can cause discomfort during the process. The slight discomfort that you feel is a sign that the collagen-boosting process has been started.
Depending on the dimensions of the treated area, the procedure normally takes 1 to 1.5 hours. It is an outpatient procedure, which means you can go back to your hotel immediately after the treatment. Plan to stay in the Nonthaburi for at least 10 days after the procedure to allow for the initial recovery and to attend follow-up checkups. There is no downtime for this procedure and you do not need to take any day off from work. Minimal bruising may happen and you may experience some discomfort. The result usually become evident after 3 to 6 months and 95% of people are satisfied with the procedure after one year of therapy.
