Ultherapy: Risks and Benefits
As we age, gravity slowly begins to take its toll on our firm, youthful looking skin. Fortunately, we now have Ultherapy.
Ultherapy is a revolutionary new facial treatment that can lift, firm and tighten your skin. Using medical grade ultrasound technology, Ultherapy delivers thermal energy beneath the surface of your skin to stimulate collagen production – which is key to skin elasticity and a youthful appearance.
Originally FDA approved in 2009, Ultherapyis ideal for those between the ages 35-65, who have mild to moderate skin sagging of the facial region, but aren’t ready for surgical intervention. One of the key advantages of Ultherapy is that it can give you a more youthful appearance with minimal downtime.
Some of the additional benefits include:

- Because Ultherapy affects the deeper underlying structures of your skin, it is safe and compatible with other rejuvenation procedures such as laser treatments or injectable fillers.
- Ultherapy can correct loose or drooping skin anywhere on your facial region and is suitable for all skin types and tones.
Compared to most other cosmetic procedures, Ultherapy presents few risks. Following treatment, it’s possible that you may experience:
Because Ultherapy is a relatively new treatment, the long-lasting risks and benefits are not well documented. Current data suggests that the final results of a Ultherapy session will last for at least one year, possibly longer.
