Common questions about Ultherapy

Facial treatment

There are lots of different, non-surgical cosmetic procedures available today. Each time a new one is offered, it is natural for people to have questions about its use, effectiveness and safety.

Ultherapy has been around for some time now. Below are the answers to some of the most common questions asked by clients.

Is Ultherapy safe?

This treatment utilises ultrasound technology to improve the appearance of people’s skin. Ultrasonic technology has been used by the medical profession since the 1920s. It is used to scan people’s bodies and to offer pregnant women a view of their unborn child. This demonstrates that it is safe and effective technology.

It has been used on more than half a million patients worldwide and continues to rise in popularity.

Is it better than a facelift?

There are no non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can offer effects that are better than a facelift.

The advantages are that it is cheaper than a facelift, requires no recovery time and it can be completed in under two hours. Many people find that it is a less daunting step than having a facelift and it is, therefore, accessible to more people.

Does it hurt?

For most people, Ultherapy is a comfortable and painless procedure. Others comment that they feel a strong sense of heat during trreatment. Some clients do report some light to mild discomfort during the procedure. A reputable practitioner can advise on painkillers or offer a numbing agent to assist with this. Most people find the sensations bearable and a reassuring indicator that the procedure is having an effect.

When can someone see results?

One of the great benefits of Ultherapy is that the results get more pronounced in the weeks and months following a client’s procedure. This means that the effect appears to be natural. If someone does not want friends, family or colleagues to know that they have had cosmetic work done, they do not need to tell anyone when they have Ultherapy. As the change happens gradually, no one will know. They will just appear to be subtly younger.

The full effects take up to six months to appear and can last up to two years.
