Ultherapy Q & A

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a completely noninvasive treatment that tightens the skin to minimize wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging without surgery or injections. The treatment utilizes gentle ultrasound energy, the same type of energy used in ultrasound imaging.

The Ultherapy device produces sound waves, which travel through your skin and into your deeper tissues to produce heat. The heat from the ultrasound energy causes collagen production, which makes your skin firmer. You have lots of collagen in your younger years, but it diminishes with age. 

Ultherapy also helps restore your skin’s elastin. Elastin is a lot like collagen but keeps your skin stretchy instead of firm. With increased collagen and elastin, the areas you target with Ultherapy look more youthful. 

What does Ultherapy treat?

Ultherapy can eliminate wrinkles and lines in various areas, especially on the face, neck, and chest. Some of the most popular treatment areas for Ultherapy are:

  • Brows
  • Around the eyes
  • Jawline
  • Décolletage

The results first appear within a few days of your Ultherapy treatment at Younger World Med Spa. The improvements can continue for up to three months after that because it takes some time for collagen and elastin to grow. 

Once you know how your skin responds to Ultherapy, you can decide with help from your providers at Younger World Med Spa whether or not you want to continue with follow-up treatments. 

How should I care for my skin after Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is notably gentle compared to other treatments that use energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. This means an easier recovery time too. In fact, you won’t need any downtime at all and can go right back to work, exercise, and social activities immediately after your appointment. 

If you want to maintain healthier skin in general and make sure you can see your Ultherapy results for as long as possible, you should:

  • Stay hydrated
  • Avoid direct ultraviolet (UV) light 
  • Wear sunscreen
  • Eat a nutritious diet
  • Use products as advised by your providers

The team at Younger World Med Spa can make product recommendations to help with upkeep between treatments.
