Ulthera (Ultherapy) Q&A

What is Ulthera (Ultherapy)?

Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten skin. The ultrasound energy stimulates the growth of new collagen from deep within your skin. This provides the skin support needed to gently lift the skin.

What areas does Ulthera (Ultherapy) treat?

Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared system that lifts the skin in the following areas.

  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Brow

In addition, Ultherapy improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the décolleté (upper chest) area for a whole upper-body refresh.

How does Ulthera (Ultherapy) compare to other lifting treatments?

Ultherapy stands out from other treatments, like lasers and radiofrequency therapy, because it treats your deeper skin layers in the ideal way for collagen growth. 

By heating your deep skin layers to 60-70°C, Ultherapy causes the collagen there to contract. This provides an immediate improvement in skin tightness. 

The heat also stimulates an injury reaction under your skin. When your body perceives an injury, it starts producing fresh collagen that’s stronger and firmer than what you already have. 

Ultherapy also stands apart from other treatments because the Brooklyn Aesthetics team uses highly focused ultrasound imaging to visualize the different layers of skin during treatment. 

This ensures that your treatment is delivered in the right spot, at the right depth, and at the optimal temperature for collagen growth. In this way, you make more collagen in the areas where you need it, versus other treatments that are less precise. 

When will I see the results of Ultherapy?

You see an immediate improvement thanks to collagen contraction, but the real results happen over the next two or three months. 

As your body steadily grows new collagen, you notice smoother, firmer, and younger skin in the treatment areas. Results may continue to improve for up to six months. 

How long do the results of Ultherapy last?

Ultherapy can last a year or longer. You can maintain your results longer with yearly Ultherapy sessions. Good skin care, staying out of the sun, and healthy living can all help you keep your youthful new look, and Brooklyn Aesthetics offers maintenance treatments like facials in the office.
