Am I a Good Candidate for ULTHERAPY?
What Can ultherapy treat?
Ultherapy is a versatile and effective skin tightening method, which is why Dr. Emer so frequently incorporates Ultherapy into both facial and body sculpting treatment plans. Ultherapy can improve skin quality in many areas of the body, including the:
- Face (eyes, eyebrows, cheeks, around the mouth, and mouth corners)
- Jawline and jowls
- Legs, knees, and thighs
Dr. Emer begins the Ultherapy procedure by cleansing the treatment area and applying a cool ultrasound gel. He will then place the Ultherapy applicator against your skin and strategically direct the HIFU energy at the targeted areas.
Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging allows Dr. Emer to see deep within the skin, giving him a clear picture of where the HIFU energy is being delivered and where it is needed. Patients often experience tingling and warmth during the procedure as the HIFU energy stimulates collagen production under the skin.
The length of your procedure will depend on the treatment area. On average, Ultherapy takes between 30-90 minutes.
What to Expect After Ultherapy
You can return to your normal activities immediately after your Ultherapy session. Some patients experience temporary redness or tenderness at the treatment site following the procedure, but these symptoms typically dissipate within a few hours.
Although the ultrasound energy starts working beneath your skin the moment it is delivered, expect to see gradual improvements in skin tightening and lifting over two to three months as collagen production increases. Improvements from Ultherapy can last up to a year or more.
How Often Can I Get Ultherapy?
Ultherapy results depend on your body’s collagen production and natural aging process. Due to Dr. Emer’s expertise in combining complementary treatments, many of his patients only require one Ultherapy session to achieve their facial or body sculpting goals.
If your goals involve accelerated skin tightening, Dr. Emer may advise up to four sessions per year for enhanced collagen production. Maintenance treatments of once or twice per year may be recommended as part of a preventative anti-aging protocol.
How Much Does Ultherapy Cost?
Your Ultherapy treatment will be tailored to your specific skin tightening goals. The size of the area being treated and the number of sessions required will affect the overall price. Dr. Emer will discuss all costs associated with your facial or body sculpting treatment plan during your consultation.
