Aging and gravity can affect your appearance greatly. Wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin start to appear, making you look older. To combat this, there are many solutions on the market. Many of these solutions include complex surgeries with a lot of incisions. Now, for patients who are seeking a nonsurgical solution, there is ultherapy.
Ultherapy is a noninvasive procedure that helps to lift and tighten the skin for a youthful look. This system uses focused ultrasound on the body that reaches the deep tissue. Ultrasound energy stimulates the body’s own healing process to restore elasticity and collagen to the skin and underlying tissues. After just one 30 to 90-minute procedure, the energy will start to counteract the effects of aging.
An applicator is placed on the treatment area and projects an image. This image allows the Ultherapy Specialist to visually see where to direct the energy. The applicator then delivers focused energy at a specific depth below the skin while leaving the surface of the skin uninterrupted. The tissues respond to Ultherapy by stimulating new growth of collagen and elastin. With this stimulation, a gradual tightening and firming of the skin occur which results in a naturally youthful appearance over the next few months.
The Ultherapy device is most notably known for nonsurgical facelifts, but it can treat many more areas and conditions such as:
At Resplendence MedSpa, we can customize the ultherapy treatment to suit your needs and goals and achieve your desired results.
When you come in for your Ultherapy treatment, the skin of the treatment area will be cleansed. Once this is done, a gel will be applied, and the smooth applicator will be placed on the skin. During the treatment, you may feel tiny amounts of energy against the skin. This treatment is well-tolerated and not painful. Depending on the size of the treatment area this could take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes.
With just one Ultherapy treatment, the regenerative process starts. The effect builds over a period of 2 to 3 months from the treatment. Patients will notice a gradual improvement over this period. Some patients get optimal results with just one treatment while others may need a series of treatments. You will be able to return to normal activities immediately after your Ultherapy session. Some slight redness or swelling may occur but should resolve over a few days.

There is no specific preparation for Ultherapy. The important thing is to have the skin clean and free of makeup. Ultherapy may be painful, though taking 800 mg of Ibuprofen prior to the procedure may suffice. If it does not, different practices have different ways of making the procedure more comfortable.
