What is Recovery Like After Ultherapy® Treatment?
Unlike many other skin rejuvenation treatments and procedures, Ultherapy nonsurgical skin tightening is noninvasive with virtually no downtime — allowing patients to resume their normal daily activities almost immediately after treatment. And that’s not the only benefit of Ultherapy skin tightening! Keep reading for more information on the benefits of Ultherapy from the experienced team of dermatologic and aesthetic specialists at Dermatology Center of Dallas.
What does Ultherapy do?
Ultherapy is a popular skin enhancement treatment that can be used to tighten and firm loose skin without the need for incisions, scarring, or an extended healing period. The primary treatment areas for Ultherapy include:
- Around the eyes
During an Ultherapy treatment, targeted ultrasound energy is delivered to the skin’s surface through a noninvasive handpiece. The skin may be numbed to keep the patient as comfortable as possible during treatment. Over time, the body’s natural healing process helps to rebuild new, healthy collagen fibers for a firmer, lifted, more youthful new complexion.
How long does it take the skin to heal after Ultherapy?
Ultherapy does not puncture or damage the skin the way some other treatments and procedures do, meaning there is almost no healing or recovery period necessary. In some cases, patients will experience redness and inflammation after an Ultherapy treatment session. These side effects of Ultherapy are normal and are typically very mild and subside on their own after just a few hours. Using gentle cold compresses and over-the-counter medications, as recommended, can help these symptoms resolve quickly. Patients should also plan to avoid sun exposure and strenuous exercise almost immediately after an Ultherapy session.
What are the benefits of Ultherapy?
Ultherapy offers a number of exciting benefits for patients looking for a convenient, effective, long-lasting option for nonsurgical skin tightening. Some of the most compelling benefits of skin tightening with Ultherapy include:
- Nonsurgical and noninvasive
- No scarring
- Minimal (if any) downtime
- Tightens loose skin
- Firms sagging skin
- Smoothes lines and wrinkles
- Stimulates the production of collagen
- Can be paired with other facial rejuvenation treatments
- Results are typically apparent after a single treatment session
How often will I need Ultherapy?
For most patients, a single Ultherapy treatment can result in their desired level of skin tightening. On average, patients can plan to have maintenance or “touch-up” treatments about once per year to keep their complexion looking its best. Additionally, patients should minimize sun exposure, use sunscreen, abstain from smoking, and consider complementary skin treatments and procedures between Ultherapy sessions for the longest-lasting results possible.
