Benefits of Ultherapy
February 16, 2015
Ultherapy is the first and currently only procedure approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for lifting the skin. Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure (unlike traditional surgery) that utilizes ultrasound to treat the identified area of the skin. There are a variety of benefits that can be derived through the use of Ultherapy. It is designed to target the collagen-producing layer deep beneath the skin, revitalizing that layer.
If you’re considering a facelift but don’t want to undergo a surgical procedure, Ultherapy could be right for you. Because it does not require surgery, Ultherapy can give you quick results with virtually no down time. You can get back to your daily routine almost immediately after treatment.

One of the most significant benefits associated with Ultherapy is the fact that it is a non-invasive procedure. Because of this fact, a person is able to obtain optimal results without going under the knife.
Because it is a non-invasive procedure, the side effects associated with surgery are avoided completely. This includes avoiding a prolonged recovery time as well as the risk of infection.
In addition, Ultherapy is a painless procedure. An individual undergoing the procedure may experience a bit of mild discomfort, but that typically can be addressed during the course of the procedure itself.
Women (and even an increasing number of men) who have utilized the Ultherapy treatment end up with smoother, younger looking skin. The process restores a person’s skin vitality. The skin area treated with Ultherapy actually becomes firmer and tighter after the treatment is concluded. Indeed, most people who undergo Ultherapy treatment report significant improvement in the firmness and youthful appearance of skin.
Number of Treatments
One of the other significant benefits associated with Ultherapy is that most people receive the results they desire after only one treatment. In some instances, an additional treatment or a series of treatments is suggested for optimal results, however for some only one treatment is necessary.
No Recovery Period
As noted, Ultherapy does not have the recovery period associated with surgery. In fact, when a person undergoes Ultherapy, there is no recovery period whatsoever. A person is able to immediately return to her normal routines immediately after a treatment. For example, a person can return to work directly after an Ultherapy treatment.
Nearly Non-existent Side Effects
Another of the crucial, compelling benefits associated with Ultherapy is its lack of harmful, negative side effects. The treatment is virtually free of even the most minimal side effects. In the vast majority of cases, if there is any aftereffect associated with Ultherapy, it is flushed or slightly puffy skin. In some isolated cases, a person will experience very slight swelling.
With that said, even in those cases in which these minimal side effects do occur, they do not last long. If a person experiences one or another of these side effects, they will last only for a few hours in most instances.
