A non-invasive cosmetic treatment, ultherapy®, uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin. Ultherapy® is often used to address signs of aging, such as sagging skin on the face, neck, and décolletage. This treatment stimulates collagen production deep within the skin, resulting in a gradual tightening and firming effect. Cumberland Skin offers ultherpay® to patients who desire a younger, refreshed look.

What to Expect at Your Ultherapy Appointment

At your Ultherapy appointment, the process begins with a consultation to discuss your concerns, goals, and medical history. Following an assessment of your skin, a personalized treatment plan is created. The treatment area is prepared, potentially involving the application of a topical anesthetic for comfort. Ultrasound imaging is used to visualize skin layers, ensuring precise energy delivery. During the procedure, you may feel warmth or tingling as ultrasound energy is applied to stimulate collagen production. The duration varies but is typically completed within a few hours.

Ultherapy Maintenance Recommendations

To maintain the benefits of Ultherapy, schedule follow-up sessions as recommended by your provider. Adopting a healthy skincare routine with gentle cleansers and moisturizers supports overall skin health. Regular use of broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF protects the treated skin, and maintaining adequate hydration contributes to skin vitality. A balanced lifestyle with proper nutrition, regular exercise, and sufficient sleep further promotes skin health. Consider using dermatologist-recommended skincare products and treatments to complement Ultherapy results. Regular check-ins are essential to assess skin health and address concerns.

Ultherapy Maintenance Schedule

The maintenance schedule for Ultherapy typically involves follow-up sessions scheduled according to your provider's recommendations. These sessions are essential to maintain and enhance the results achieved with Ultherapy over time.

Ultherapy® FAQs

Ultherapy® treatment usually takes bout 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

Ultherapy® typically requires minimal downtime. Individuals can resume normal activities shortly after the procedure. Your dermatology provider will discuss specific timelines with you after treatment.

While individual results may vary, many patients start to see some initial improvement immediately after the treatment, with more significant results becoming apparent over the following 2 to 3 months. This is because the treatment stimulates the body's natural collagen production, which gradually lifts and tightens the skin over time. Some patients may benefit from multiple treatments for optimal results.

The duration of Ultherapy® results can vary widely among individuals. Some people may experience noticeable improvement for several months, while others may enjoy the benefits for a few years. Factors influencing the longevity of results include the individual's skin condition, age, lifestyle, and the specific areas treated.
