Ultherapy Q & A

Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc

What is ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a noninvasive treatment that leverages the same technology as an ultrasound to counteract the effects that gravity has on your skin. The advanced technology stimulates your body to increase collagen production. Ultherapy works gradually, helping regenerate the collagen in the skin while lifting and plumping its appearance.

Your provider at Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc first uses the ultrasound imagery to determine which areas of your skin need treatment the most. Then they direct the ultrasound energy to the treatment area, which stimulates collagen production to lift and tighten your skin.

What areas can I get ultherapy?

Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to provide younger-looking skin on the following areas:

  • Under the chin
  • Eyebrows
  • Neck
  • Décolletage

These areas commonly see the signs of aging first and can greatly benefit from ultherapy. This quick and painless treatment can tighten skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in your décolletage quicker than any over-the-counter serums and creams.

Can ultherapy replace a face-lift?

Ultherapy can reflect similar results as a face-lift, but cannot replace it completely. Unlike cosmetic surgery, this treatment takes a more gradual approach, with results becoming more apparent over time.

Ultherapy is a great alternative to a face-lift for those that aren’t ready or aren’t able to have surgery, as it is a noninvasive treatment, but results might not be as dramatic or immediate as those that come with a face-lift.

How long does ultherapy treatment take?

Treatment time depends on the area that you’re looking to treat. Larger areas typically take about 60-90 minutes, while smaller areas can take approximately 30 minutes.

Does ultherapy hurt?

Ultherapy isn’t painful, but you might feel mild sensations during the treatment. As your provider at Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc delivers the energy from the ultrasound to your skin, you may feel a warming sensation where the energy is being deposited.

The sensation only lasts while your provider is applying the ultrasound energy. The level of feeling varies from person to person, but your provider always ensures that you’re comfortable throughout the entire treatment and can provide numbing cream if desired.

Do I need to plan for recovery after ultherapy?

There is no downtime with ultherapy treatments. After your appointment, you can resume normal activities without any need for recovery or post-treatment measures.

If you’re struggling with signs of aging on your face and neck, ultherapy might be the perfect treatment for you. To learn more, call today or schedule an appointment online. The caring and informative staff at Amour Medical Aesthetics, Inc can walk you through the service and its benefits.
