How is Ultherapy® Performed?
Ultherapy® is a no-downtime procedure and is performed in our office. Patients can return to
work the next day after treatment if desired. During an Ultherapy® procedure our
aestheticians will prep the skin of the face and apply an ultrasound gel. Next, they will
place a smooth ultrasound probe on your skin in the treatment areas. Then ultrasound imaging
will be used to identify the ideal depth and location for the treatment energy to target.
Ultrasound energy from the probe will be focused deep into the tissue at the right depth and the right temperature to safely stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration process and promote collagen production. During the procedure patient experience a mild, warm tightening sensation that is tolerable without any form of anesthetic or pain medication for most people. However, if you have a limited pain tolerance, we offer PRO-NOX™ to remove the discomfort. Ultherapy® treatments typically take between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the number of areas that are being treated.
