Ultherapy – What To Expect
Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared procedure that has been shown to be safe and effective in clinical studies and has been used on tens of thousands of patients worldwide. In addition, as a recognized “Advanced Injector” clinic, DermaTouch RN has undergone extensive hands-on training in the Ultherapy procedure, so you can schedule your treatment with complete confidence.
The Ultherapy procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the treatment plan needed to meet your anti-aging goals. There is now down time or after-treatment requirements, so you can go back to your normal activities right away.
Before Your Procedure
You don’t need to do anything whatsoever before you begin the Ultherapy treatment. We may recommend over-the-counter or prescribed medication be taken prior to treatment for your comfort.
During Your Procedure
First you skin will be cleansed, and we will identify the specific areas you want to be treated. Then a special ultrasound gel is applied and the smooth Ultherapy handpiece is placed on your skin. Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure. Focused ultrasound energy just passes through the surface of your skin to the tissue below at pre-planned depths to stimulate collagen growth.
Our patients experience the sensation of the focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin at varying comfort levels. The sensation also depends on the area that is being treated as well. We will discuss options for making the experience as pleasant as possible for you. It is noticeable only while the energy is being delivered and our patients typically leave feeling comfortable.
After Your Procedure
You can return to your normal activities right after your Ultherapy treatment, there is nothing special to do. Your skin may be flushed right after the ultrasound treatment, but any redness should vanish in a few hours. Some patients experience a slight swelling for a few days or a tingling and tenderness to the touch for a few weeks following the procedure, but these are mild and temporary.
