Ultherapy Q & A

What is Ultherapy?

As you get older, your skin loses vital collagen and elastin causing it to droop and look lackluster. Ultherapy is an FDA-approved skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound energy to tone and lift your skin. 

It’s heralded as a nonsurgical facelift because it requires no incisions, stitches, or downtime. As an additional benefit, ultrasound waves stimulate collagen production in your skin’s deepest layers. 

What areas can be treated with Ultherapy?

At CSC Steil Dermatology, you can treat the following areas with Ultherapy:

  • Chest 
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Eyebrows
  • Face

Ultherapy even smooths out the lines and wrinkles on your decolletage area.

Who is a candidate for Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a popular procedure and safe for most healthy people. It’s best for men and women who:

  • Don’t wish to have a surgical facelift
  • Have laxity in the skin on their chin, brows, face, and neck
  • Have wrinkles on their chest

At your consultation, your dermatologist conducts a thorough assessment of your skin, discusses your needs and goals, and develops a plan for your custom treatment.

Are there side effects associated with Ultherapy?

Immediately following your Ultherapy session, your skin may be red, tender, and swollen. Fortunately, these are the worst side effects and they dissipate within a few hours. The procedure is extremely well tolerated by most men and women.

How long does an Ultherapy appointment take?

Since the procedure is noninvasive, you’ll be in and out of the office in about an hour. While you may experience some minor side effects after the treatment, the treatment doesn’t cause any pain at all. In fact, some patients say it’s very relaxing.

How many treatments do I need?

Unless your saggy skin is unusually severe, you only need one treatment. If your needs are extreme, your dermatologist may suggest a second session.

When will I see results from Ultherapy?

Many of the CSC Steil Dermatology patients see immediate results, but because the therapy activates new collagen production, the best results appear slowly over the course of a few weeks and months. 

Optimal results are evident between the third and sixth months after your Ultherapy session when your skin looks fresh and vibrant.
