What are the Benefits of Ultherapy®?

You realize you’re unhappy with your aging skin. What do you do?

A.) Purchase thousands of dollars worth of anti-aging cream for the rest of your life?

B.) Go to the hospital, under a general anesthetic, and have a surgical face-lift?

The answer?


There is a way to make your skin look years younger without any surgery.

Ultherapy® is the name and natural, tighter skin is the game. This is one of the best ways to tighten your skin and improve skin elasticity.

There is a good chance you want to get rid of those unwanted lines and wrinkles.

Most people have no idea about the non-invasive secret the best in the business have been using for years.

Check out the benefits of Ultherapy you need to know.

What is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy is a type of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU).

This U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved procedure is a noninvasive lift for the eyes, chin, neck, and chest – where some of the most resistant loose skin spots are found.

Not to mention it is the only non-invasive FDA approved skin treatment of its kind in The United States!

It is a procedure recommended for people who are 30+ and show signs of early aging. After the age of 20, the skin can become drier and thinner.

But, there is hope!

You can stay ahead of the aging game with Ultherapy.

Ultherapy is a non-invasive science. It uses ultrasound technology to heat the skin. This is the same stuff used in radiology.

Radiology is an entirely safe science and has been used for over half a century. The procedure uses sound waves, the same exact kind used for an ultrasound (i.e. during pregnancy). In fact, Ultherapy is named after Ultrasound therapy.

All it takes is some topical ultrasound gel along with an applicator against your skin.

It causes the muscles to contract and shrink to create a natural tightening of the skin. This is done by revitalizing the collagen fibers.

When we get older, collagen starts to lose its durability and gravity causes the skin to sage and lose that youthful appeal.

Ultherapy can also create brand new collagen too.

New collagen fiber means a younger look. Its growth can help tighten the skin around your cheekbones and jawline.

Collagen is a natural protein and it is the main protein involved with the structure of your skin. It keeps your skin firm and tight.

It is all-natural.

This Ultrasound technology can also be used as an imaging tool to more accurately view and target specified areas for the best results possible.

It uses micro-precision. If there is an area on your skin that needs more work, the ultrasound energy can be honed in on that spot.

Of those who chose treatment on the neck, nearly 73% reported a visible difference and a lift in the targeted area.

You can choose to treat specific areas or your whole face. Some of the most popular areas are:

  • Cheeks
  • Under-eye
  • Forehead
  • Jawline
  • Neck

Believe it or not, Ultherapy has been performed over a million times around the world.

The coolest thing about this process?

Ultherapy helps to heal three layers of skin by targeting the deep tissues. It can actually go up to 5 mm beneath the skin. That’s deeper than a laser.

The device can reach:

  • Surface wrinkles
  • Skin
  • Muscle

The procedure only takes an average of 45 minutes. There is little to no recovery time needed in most cases.

Some patients do report mild swelling after the treatment, so it’s important to have honest communication with your Ultherapy specialist to ensure you receive the best care possible before, during, and after treatment.

In Ultherapy, you do not need anesthesia, it’s non-invasive, and there is absolutely no scar tissue.

Benefits of Ultherapy

Ultherapy benefits are endless, but below are the top four Ultherapy benefits you need to know.

1. Noticeable Results

Don’t expect immediate results; however, most patients report seeing results in the days following their treatment.

Right after the treatment, you can expect some redness and tightness of the skin.

A few weeks after the Ultherapy treatment, you will observe tighter, more even skin. Some even still see improvements happening six months after treatment.

You can continue Ultherapy treatment every few years if it is the right fit for you.

Treatments typically last 30 to 90 minutes. Not to mention the convenience of no incisions and little to no recovery time.

This can help you have more control over your aging process.

2. You Save Money

In 2019, 1.12 million Americans spent more than $500 on makeup products in just three months.

Let’s break that down.

That means some people spend over $2,000 a year on beauty products. In twenty years, some individuals spend more than $40,000 in makeup, creams, serums, and the like.

Ultherapy costs anywhere between $500 – $3500 depending on the size of the treatment area.

It is an investment.

But two-thirds of patients were satisfied or very satisfied with the Ultherapy treatments.

3. It’s Customizable

One of the best Ultherapy benefits is that is can be customized to your specific needs and wishes.

Your individual specialist at the Medical Spa can cater to the duration and the intensity of the procedure.

The technician can actually see the layers of tissue being treated, so the specialist can guide the ultrasound energy to the areas your skin needs most.

Remember the ultrasound technology allows the Ultherapy to see the layers of tissue. Your skin is unique – and so is your treatment!

This treatment can help you turn back the clock and get back to a younger you.

Ultherapy can also be combined with other tools for even better results.

Another unique aspect is that Ultherapy can be used alongside other types of cosmetic procedures like neurotoxins or topical retinoids.

These topical retinoids come from vitamin A.

Alongside Ultherapy, these retinoids can help reduce more lines, wrinkles, blotches, and roughness on the skin. There is no other non-invasive option like this out there.

4. Accessible

There have been over a million Ultherapy treatments worldwide.

From New York to Louisville to San Francisco – there are Medical Spas that offer Ultherapy everywhere.

In fact, nonsurgical skin tightening treatments increased by 12% since 2015. The demand is at an all-time high.

It is so easy because the treatment can be performed right in the office, unlike a face-lift procedure, which involves going to a hospital or an outpatient facility.

The treatment only lasts 30 minutes to 90 minutes, making it perfect for anyone with a busy schedule.

The patient is in and out in the same day. It does not impact the surface of your skin. You can resume normal activities right away. There is no need for special post-treatment measures.

Is Ultherapy Right For Me?

Still have more questions?

That’s okay!

Ultherapy may be right for you if you want to lessen wrinkles and lines without surgery. It is also recommended for those who may not be good candidates for a facelift such as those with:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Serious medical problems

As of 2013, over $506 million was spent by patients on non-invasive skin tightening treatments around the world.

Ultherapy can be a great choice for people who do not want a facelift. However, some plastic surgeons suggest Ultherapy on some surgical face-lift patients to help keep their results last even longer.

It works best for those with mild to moderately loose facial and neck skin. You may be a great candidate if you experience:

  • Sagging under the chin
  • Loose skin around the neck
  • Lines and wrinkles on the chest
  • Low-lying brow line

It is important to the Ultherapy medical specialists that the operation will be safe and work well for the individual’s skin type.

It can be a big decision.
