Am I a Good Candidate For Ultherapy?
You’re a good candidate for Ultherapy treatments if you have mild to moderate signs of skin sagging, especially in common trouble spots like the forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, jawline, underneath the chin, chest, and neck. All candidates should be healthy individuals with realistic expectations for their results.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
A typical treatment takes about one to two hours to perform. Throughout the procedure, you may notice a moderate warming sensation; this is a sign that your Ultherapy treatment is working, as the ultrasound energy is tightening and toning your subdermal layers.
There may be some discomfort and patients may be advised to take pain medication prior to the procedure. Most patients have found that oral medication has lessened the pain, and reduced the discomfort once the procedure is under way. Patients may also find it more comfortable to have this procedure paired with IV sedation in our AAAASF accredited surgical center. Ultherapy may be performed as a sole procedure or in combination with another surgical procedure.
