Everything You Need to Know About Ultherapy

Finesse Cosmetic Laser and Lipo offers Ultherapy at its Waltham, Massachusetts clinic for patients who are looking to counteract the effects of gravity on their skin. Ultherapy harnesses the body’s internal regenerative response to naturally and gently lift the skin on areas including the eyebrows, under the chin, and on the neck. This reduces wrinkles and smooths lines, creating a more youthful appearance. It is a non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA to lift skin and uses a proprietary ultrasound imaging technique to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy creates the most dramatic effect in wrinkle and line reduction.

Am I A Good Candidate For Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is ideal for those who are hesitant to undergo a more invasive facelift or preserve the effects of a past cosmetic surgery. A good candidate has mildly to moderately lax skin resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. These signs can include a lower eyebrow line, loose skin in the neck and chin areas, or wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy has recently introduced their proprietary Decolletage Treatment, which can treat wrinkles on the chest as well as on the face. Although it is not a replacement for the traditional facelift which can target much more extensive skin issues, it is ideal for those who are looking for a more youthful appearance without surgery.

What To Expect Before Treatment

The first step is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with an Ultherapy specialist. This will allow them to assess goals for treatment and examine the skin conditions you want reduced. If you are found to be a good candidate, there is no special preparation or skin regimen needed to prepare for the treatment.

What To Expect During And After Treatment

The Ultherapy treatment begins by cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas targeted. After applying ultrasound gel, the practitioner will use the treatment applicator to see deep inside the skin to target the treatment energy and then apply the ultrasound energy to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production and result in smoother skin. You will feel tiny amounts of energy being sent into the skin precisely, but clients describe it as largely painless compared to alternatives. Unlike most alternatives, there is no downtime after treatment. You can return to your daily activities immediately after the treatment with no follow-up restrictions. There may be mild cosmetic effects immediately, but the full effect of the treatment will become clear over the next few months.
