What is Ultherapy?

Sep 15, 2021 | 0 comments

You’re probably thinking, “What is ultherapy?,” and rightly so for it is a funny-sounding word. Ultherapy is a skin-tightening treatment through ultrasound that is most commonly known for its status as an efficient non-surgical procedure. 

If you’ve ever desired fewer wrinkles and a more youthful appearance but have also dreaded the idea of a facelift, ultherapy might be just the procedure for you.

Following the noninvasive skincare trend, ultherapy boasts both a quick procedure time as well as little to no recovery time. As if that weren’t enough, ultherapy creates results by boosting your body’s collagen production, meaning the results look and are natural. All this is done through a quick and easy ultrasound procedure before you continue on with your day.

It’s no surprise, then, to hear that ultherapy has been increasing in popularity in recent years. But what exactly are the benefits of this procedure that have made it so popular?


What makes ultherapy amazing are the benefits it offers compared to other typical skin tightening treatments. Though others are also effective, a nonsurgical alternative surely speaks for itself in both difficulty of treatment and length of recovery time. 

Here are some of the reasons why you should consider ultherapy for yourself:

Tighter skin without going under the knife

Ultherapy has piqued the interest of many by non-surgically offering the same youthful look promised by other treatments. Its easy procedure has made it available to those who’ve previously shied away from skin-tightening treatments.

Whether you’re afraid of surgical procedures or you simply do not want to trade a wound for better-looking skin, Ultherapy is the treatment for you. It offers safety from the risks of surgery while promising similar aesthetic effects as other surgical treatments.  

Removes the signs of aging and gives a youthful glow

Ultherapy is used to remove the signs of aging visible on the skin, specifically on the face, neck, and chest. It targets sagging and wrinkles, but that doesn’t mean you should wait until you’re 70. Ultherapy is a useful procedure for anyone self-conscious about their wrinkles, regardless of age.

Fat pockets under the chin, on the neck, and even those that cause drooping brows can be resolved by using ultherapy. These fat pockets can stay even after losing weight. Ultherapy can return your youthful looks, best of all, in a noninvasive way.

Available even for clients with a tight schedule

In our fast-paced world, with instant, this and efficient that, it’s no surprise skincare procedures have joined the trend. 

Skincare has upped its game with two key features: availability and ease of the procedure. Youthful looks are now available to clients normally hindered by their hectic work schedule thanks to the short recovery time of non-surgical procedures.

Ultherapy is one of many non-surgical skincare procedures boasting little to no recovery time that is growing in popularity among working women who still want to look their best.



Compared to standard surgical treatments, ultherapy does not need significant preparation time. It does not require planned days off of work. You can also continue with your usual eating, drinking, working, and exercise routines before the procedure. 

Your practitioner may give other recommendations such as not using makeup or other skincare products pre-procedure. You may be instructed to take anti-inflammatory or pain-reducing medications if your dermatologist believes it is right for you. 


In addition to its minimal preparation time, the procedure itself does not take long. It lasts between 30 to 90 minutes. Imagine all the other daily tasks that take you over 90 minutes. Squeezing an ultherapy session in our tight schedule takes surprisingly little work! 

During the procedure, you will be assisted by a physician or a laser technician. The targeted areas will be cleaned thoroughly in case of residue or oil before the application of ultrasound gel. You may feel heat or a tingling sensation as the ultrasound is placed against your skin. 

All this takes an easy 30 to 90 minutes causing little impact on your busy day.


On top of the convenience and time-efficiency of the preparation and procedure, ultherapy does not require a lengthy recovery period. Since it is nonsurgical, recovery takes at most a few days and, in some cases, no time at all. That is good news for those who don’t want to be bothered by the limitations after a surgical procedure.

How Ultherapy Works

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to target specific areas beneath the skin. When used at the right temperatures, the ultrasound technology stimulates collagen production which then leads to skin regeneration over time. 

This non-invasive ultrasound technology intends to provide a safe and convenient alternative to skin tightening procedures without the use of surgery. It has garnered approval and satisfaction among those who have undergone the procedure. Most patients achieved their desired results within 60 to 180 days after the procedure. 

The ultherapy procedure includes simply:

  • Preparation by removing skin care products applied on targeted areas
  • Undergoing treatment
  • Waiting for your desired outcome

This easy procedure has little effect on your otherwise busy life. Most people are able to get on with usual activities right after the session. 

Furthermore, it takes only one session in most patients. There are, however, patients that can benefit from additional sessions if the body’s capacity to produce collagen is lower than normal.

The heat and tingling feeling should subside immediately after the treatment. Your desired results should start manifesting within a few days after the session. The results and the time needed to reach your desired outcome will still depend on the capacity of your body to produce collagen. 

While your skin is continuously producing collagen, you won’t need another treatment for your body to continue its anti-aging process.
