Your practitioner will recommend pain management which can be taken approximately 45 minutes before your treatment begins.
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, ultrasound gel will be applied and the smooth treatment applicator will be placed against your skin.
To customise your treatment, your practitioner will visualise the best location for treatment through Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging in order to target the area(s) that will benefit you most.
During treatment, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited under the skin, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels can vary from person to person but you may experience the sensation of heat and/or tingling while the energy is being delivered.
Ultherapy is customised so the length of your appointment will depend on the area being treated.
There is no downtime, only natural looking results. You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
Your skin might appear flushed at first but the redness should disappear within a few hour.
Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Other less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin.
