for Ultherapy

Good Candidates for Ultherapy

 

Preferred qualities for Ultherapy candidates include:

  • Men or women with medium to moderate skin laxity
  • People who want an effective and natural non-surgical facelift option
  • People looking to lift their faces, remove sleep wrinkles or treat crepey skin on the chest or breast area
  • People who have had plastic surgery and want to stimulate collagen production

To ensure success with Ultherapy we provide a free consultation prior to scheduling treatment.

What to Expect & Results with an Ultherapy Treatment

 

To ensure maximum comfort during the treatment, we provide clients with Ibuprofen and topical numbing crème. On the targeted area, lines are drawn to frame where the treatment will occur. Within the defined area, heat, which feels like tiny pinpoints, is then delivered. Some say it feels like a typewriter keys depositing tiny amounts of energy under the skin. This sensation is only felt during the treatment. There is no pain felt afterward.

 

You will start to see results in about 3 months! Over this time, the collagen that your body was naturally stimulated to produce is lifting and tightening the skin.  

The Difference between a Non-Surgical Facelift & a Surgical Facelift

 

A surgical facelift is expensive, has substantial risks and side effects, and involves weeks, if not months, of downtime. Ultherapy, on the other hand, is substantially more cost-effective, has almost no risks or sides effects and zero downtime. Further, while a facelift can have more dramatic results, it can only physically pull back your skin. It is also 100% artificial. Ultherapy is a treatment that works to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. Also, while Ultherapy can be performed every two years, surgical facelifts cannot be repeatedly performed.

Frequently Asked Questions for Ultherapy

What is Ultherapy and how does it work?

Ultherapy is a non-surgical device using focused ultrasound to produce hundreds of tiny thermal injuries in the supportive structural tissues under the skin. These thermal injuries cause the body’s natural healing response to lay down new collagen and elastin proteins causing the skin to firm, tighten, and lift.

How is Ultherapy different from other non-surgical skin tightening treatments?

Ultherapy is non-surgical and unlike other non-surgical technologies, Ultherapy is the only FDA cleared device proven to lift sagging skin. Where other technologies claim to tighten the skin, a physical lift is not always visual.

 

Other non-surgical technologies use either infrared light or radio frequency to bulk heat the skin from the top down. With no exact idea of how warm the skin is getting or how far down the heat is going, these skin tightening treatments are a hit-or-miss approach. Ultherapy, on the other hand, uses two ultrasound waves that meet each other at a predetermined depth under the skin with precision heat. The additional assurance of visual ultrasound imaging allows us, the technicians, to see the tissues being affected and ensures the energy is deposited where it is most effective.

How is Denver Laser Solutions Ultherapy treatment different from other clinics?

We have been performing Ultherapy treatments for over two years in the Denver area, and with that expertise we have altered the way we perform our treatments that sets us apart from other clinics. First, we have found that breaking up the treatments into three separate appointments makes it far more comfortable for our Denver Ultherapy clientele. By spacing out the treatments rather than treating all at once means quicker healing time with less side effects like redness, swelling, or bruising.

What areas can I treat with Ultherapy?

Ultherapy was cleared by the FDA in 2009 to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and above the brow. Since then, Ultherapy has been additionally cleared for treatments on the décolleté to minimize lines and wrinkles. As studies continue on other body areas, new FDA clearances may arise in the future.

Am I a good candidate for Ultherapy?

While everyone can benefit from treatment, Ultherapy is best for people with mild to moderate skin laxity. Although it is not a replacement for surgery, Ultherapy is a great alternative for people who would like some lifting and firming without the downtime and cost of surgery. At Denver Laser Solutions, we highly recommend coming in for a complimentary consultation to discuss realistic expectations and outcomes for your specific concerns.

How many treatments will I need?

For our Downtown Denver skin-care clientele who are ideal candidates for skin tightening, we recommend at least three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. If clients with more advanced skin laxity decide on this nonsurgical route, more treatments may be needed.

Will treatment hurt?

As we say in the skincare industry “beauty is pain!” To effectively stimulate the collagen-building process, heat from focused ultrasound needs to cause denaturation of the collagen under the skin. Ultherapy is not the most pleasant treatment however it is very tolerable when 800 mg of ibuprofen is taken one hour prior.

Do results come quickly? How long do they last?

Initial inflammation in the skin causes a temporary improvement. However like any other wound, your body needs time to heal. This healing process can take three to six months. During this time, the collagen remodeling process will lift and tighten your skin.Results may last up to three years. As our bodies continue to age, we recommend every couple of years to maintain the benefit.

Do I need to take time off of work or plan any downtime with my Ultherapy treatment?

Although Ultherapy is designed as a non-surgical procedure a wound is still being created in the tissues under the skin. Whenever there is a wound in the body, side effects may be visual. Although a lot of variables come into play as to how well the body is able to repair itself, the most common side effect we see with our Denver facelift clients is bruising. To prepare our clients here at Denver Laser Solutions, we recommend planning this treatment at least four weeks in advance of any special occasions or events for which you want to look your best.

What to expect after treatment?

There may be a slight redness and swelling for up to an hour or so following the treatment. As mentioned prior bruising may occur the following day and can linger for up to two weeks. Tingling and tenderness to the touch are mild and temporary in nature, and are side effects of causing a wound under the skin.

 

Over the next two to three months, skin lifting on the brow, neck and under the chin is expected. Further improvements can even appear up to nine months following your Ultherapy treatment. When treating the décolleté, smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles of the chest may be noticeable within 90 days. Improvement can also be seen at 180 days post treatment.
