The Benefits of Ultherapy
The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some clients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature.
Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any aesthetic medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
We can add a 14-minute HEALITE low level light therapy (LED-LLLT) treatment after your Ultherapy session: this has been found to help eliminate any mild discomfort in addition to improving the result.
These are both important building blocks within our skin. Collagen is a protein that is abundant in our skin and is important in providing strength and stability through the cross-linked bundles of collagen fibres. Collagen is produced by special cells (called fibroblasts) but over time our skin loses some of its collagen, contributing to skin laxity and sagging. Elastin is a highly elastic protein in skin, which is also made by the fibroblasts and which forms elastic fibres, rather like thick rubber bands. These maintain skin elasticity and allow the skin to return to its original position when it is poked, pinched or stretched. Again, as we age, our skin loses some elastin so that the elastic fibres lose their elasticity, which also contributes to sagging and laxity. Since our faces are constantly subjected to movement and pressure (when we smile, sleep, talk, shout, cry, laugh or sing) the loss of elastin and collagen really can take its toll
The natural wound healing process triggered by Ultherapy helps rebuild the skin’s fibrous matrix with young, healthy collagen and elastic fibres, turning back the skin’s ageing clock from within.
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure takes 60–90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
