Myth #1 It’s painful and many people can’t even finish the procedure once they start!

While there is some mild discomfort with the procedure3, it doesn’t have to be VERY uncomfortable. If desired and applicable, we will pre-treat with a sedative such as valium and also give ibuprofen one hour prior to the procedure.

I have found that topical lidocaine as well as specific stress relieving techniques can greatly reduce any discomfort that patients may experience*. For those patients that would like anesthetic sedation during their treatment, Dr. Brady and I are able to offer you anesthesia services during Ultherapy treatment in his  brand new,  state of the art surgical suite.

Myth #2 The results don’t last very long, and the treatment must be repeated.

The treatment results are gradual and natural looking, with initial improvements noticed as soon as two weeks after treatment1. The improvements will continue over 3-6 months and even longer for the maximum results1. Occasionally, people will opt for a touch up procedure after a year or 2*.

Myth #3 Anyone can perform this procedure, and the results are the same.

Seek out a person who has an extensive background in both Anatomy & Ultrasound. Did you know that no ones anatomy is exactly the same? An experienced Ultrasound practitioner can accurately interpret the Ultherapy Ultrasound image and determine what tissue DEPTHS to treat at as well as what FREQUENCY of sound is appropriate to use. Remember, your Ultherapy treatment should be always be CUSTOMIZED for you.

Myth #4 I should shop around for the best possible price.

We all know cheaper is not necessarily better, and this is especially true when it comes to cosmetic work on the face and neck. Saving a couple hundred dollars here and there could cost you in the long run with a less than optimal result. As explained above, not all Ultherapy® treatments are the same, and the results can vary based upon who is doing the procedure. Also, your level of comfort during the procedure can vary as well based upon the experience, skill, and anesthetic technique of the person performing Ultherapy®.

Myth #5 Ultherapy can replace a surgical facelift.

While Ultherapy® can provide a very nice improvement, it will never replace the results of a surgical facelift. A facelift will result in more lifting and tightening since excess skin is removed. The ideal Ultherapy® candidate falls into four general categories:

1) Someone who does not “need” a facelift yet.
2) Someone who cannot medically undergo a surgical procedure
3) Someone who does not want a surgical procedure
4) Someone who has had previous surgery and wants a little tuck up

How Ultherapy Works

Ultherapy is a FDA cleared device that combines traditional Ultrasound Imaging with Ultrasound energy delivered into the skin in the form of gentle heat.  An Ultrasound wand is used to deliver this energy.  

Because Ultherapy is the only skin tightening procedure to use ultrasound imaging; our Board Certified Ultrasound Expert can view all the supportive layers directly and then safely and accurately deliver the ultrasound energy to the specific areas that need it the most.  The cells in the treated layers then naturally release growth proteins signaling to the layer of skin to produce more collagen.  This causes the collagen layer to permanently thicken over the course of 3-6 months

How is Ultherapy Different?

Ultherapy is different than lasers as lasers typically involve improving superficial layers of the skin. Ultherapy addresses the deep skin layers AND the foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery that lends support to the skin.

With ultrasound, we can bypass the upper layers of the skin and deliver the right amount of energy at the right depths to lift the deep layers. This rejuvenating Ultrasound based treatment stimulates new collagen production and restores skin elasticity without disrupting the surface of the skin. There is also ZERO downtime.

Skin Tightening Science

Ultherapy is based on the science of Ultrasound and its ability to cause your aging, natural collagen to regenerate. Within the field of anti-aging & aesthetics, Ultherapy is the ONLY device that LIFTS while tightening your skin. It can get to the deepest foundational layers of the skin where lasers and radiofrequency cannot. The level of precision and the degree of transformation seen from Ultherapy can only be surpassed by surgical intervention.

Ultherapy Treatment & Recovery

Unlike Laser treatments, Ultherapy has NO downtime! You can go into the sun immediately after an Ultherapy treatment. Ultherapy is not a series of treatments. One session will last up to two years.
