WHAT IS ULTHERAPY®?

Aging inevitably causes our skin to sag and lose elasticity. Ultherapy® utilizes heat emitted from ultrasound energy to reverse drooping or sagging skin. The ultrasound energy works by delivering heat into your skin and muscles, which promotes the production of collagen. This leaves your skin looking young, fresh, and tight, without damaging the outer layer of your skin. The Ultherapy® device has been FDA-approved to lift and tighten the following areas:

  • Face
  • Brow
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
FDA-CLEARED AND NON-INVASIVE

Ultherapy® is a natural, non-invasive, FDA-cleared procedure that safely and effectively tightens your skin with no downtime. And, if that wasn’t enough, every practitioner that performs Ultherapy® procedures has been provided with procedural training and tools, so you can rest assured that Ultherapy® is safe. 

With Ultherapy® there are no special after-care requirements and you can resume your normal activities right after the procedure is finished. Each procedure takes about 60-90 minutes. However, this can vary depending upon the area that you are having treated and your treatment plan put together by your practitioner.

ULTHERAPY® — AN UPLIFT FOR YOUR FACE!

While many people refer to Ultherapy® as a mini facelift, we like to think of it as more of an uplift. This FDA-cleared procedure uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the underlayers of your skin which results in tighter, younger-looking skin. If you are searching for a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that gives you results similar to a facelift, Ultherapy® may be for you.

NON-INVASIVE, SAFE ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGY

Most people are familiar with ultrasound technology since it has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years. Ultherapy® uses this same safe and effective technology to transform your brow, chin, neck, and chest. Ultherapy® has given over half a million people worldwide a younger-looking appearance with tighter, firmer skin.  

The ultrasound technology works in two ways. It allows the practitioner to see the layers of tissue that they are treating and delivers heat to this tissue to promote the production of collagen, resulting in an uplift just where you need it most.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ULTHERAPY®?
  • No downtime
  • Utilizes safe ultrasound technology
  • The procedure takes only 45-90 minutes
  • Measurable results after just a single procedure
  • Stimulates the body’s natural collagen production

Why Ultherapy®?

How Does Ultherapy® Work?

Ultherapy® is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound to encourage your body to produce collagen utilizing its own natural healing process. This results in lifting, toning, and tightening of your brow, neck, and under the chin. Ultherapy® is a safe and effective way to tighten skin without the need for a surgical procedure. 

Ultherapy® works from the inside out to tighten your skin with ultrasound energy without damaging the outer layer of your skin. Other treatment forms that utilize lasers can damage your skin due to the laser having to penetrate from the outside. But with Ultherapy®, the ultrasound targets the tissues deep down inside and encourages the production of collagen without leaving a mark on your skin. 

The procedure itself is very similar to ultrasound imaging that is used on pregnant women to view their new baby. A smooth handpiece is placed on your skin and you’ll even be able to see the deep tissues appear on the ultrasound screen. This allows the practitioner to see where they should target with the Ultherapy®. 

The main difference is that the handpiece used in Ultherapy® is also used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at the tissue below your skin, which is the same place where a traditional facelift would take place.

ULTHERAPY®– HOW IT WORKS
YOUNGER-LOOKING TIGHTER SKIN

Your body responds to the heat released by the Ultherapy® handpiece by growing fresh, new collagen. This results in your skin becoming tighter and lifting your skin into a more youthful position. 

You will notice some results right away, and as time passes, you will notice your skin getting a tighter and more youthful appearance. It usually takes about two to three months to see the complete results from an Ultherapy procedure, although some patients report seeing improvements in their skin for up to six months after the treatment. And, while you shouldn’t expect results that are comparable to a facelift, Ultherapy® is a safe and effective option for those who would like to forgo surgery.

Most Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS ULTHERAPY®?

Ultherapy® is a safe and effective non-invasive and non-surgical treatment that utilizes ultrasound technology to stimulate the body’s own regenerative response to create fresh, new collagen and lift the skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR ULTHERAPY®?

Xanadu Med Spa Ultherapy Treatment

Ultherapy® is recommended for those who have some loose or droopy skin due to the lack of, or breakdown, of collagen that occurs with aging. 

Patients that are experiencing loose skin under the chin or neck, loose skin on the jawline, under-eye bags, or sagging eyelids are typically good candidates for treatment. Ultherapy® is not a substitute for a facelift or skin reduction, but it can provide a natural-looking uplift for those who are experiencing loose skin and sagging due to aging. 

Ultherapy® is also ideal for those who have undergone a surgical facelift and are looking to prolong the effects. 

If you are not ready for surgery (mentally, physically, or financially) then Ulthera may be the skin-tightening treatment in Fort Collins for you!

WHAT IS AN ULTHERAPY® TREATMENT LIKE?

During your first visit to Xanadu Med Spa, your Ultherapy® specialist will meet with you, discuss your goals, and answer any questions that you might have. They will also discuss your Ultherapy® treatment plan and what types of results you should expect. 

During your Ultherapy® procedure, your practitioner will utilize the Ultherapy® handpiece to view your deep tissue to determine at which depth they should administer the treatment for best results. 

You will feel a gentle heat on your skin and tissue from the ultrasound waves. Your practitioner will direct the ultrasound to three different depths to target fine lines, wrinkles, and skin lifting. Ultherapy® will treat the inner layers of your skin and tissue while leaving your outer skin healthy and untouched.

ZERO RECOVERY TIME, NO SCARRING, AND NO RESTRICTIONS

With an Ultherapy® treatment there is no downtime, no scarring, and no post-treatment care. 

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM AN ULTHERAPY® TREATMENT?

Side effects from an Ultherapy® treatment are very mild and only occur in some patients. Possible side effects include slight redness for about an hour after your treatment and slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch at the site of treatment. However, these side effects are mild and temporary.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM MY ULTHERAPY® TREATMENT?

Ultherapy® stimulates your body’s natural healing process, which results in an increase in collagen production. While you may see some results immediately, it typically takes two to three months to experience maximum results as your body regenerates new collagen and your skin tightens and lifts. How long results last tend to vary from patient to patient and depend upon where you are in the aging process.

DOES ULTHERAPY® HURT?

Ultherapy® applies a gentle heat to the under layers of your skin and tissue. Some patients may experience discomfort during the treatment, but it is typically minimal and temporary. As more scientific research and studies are being done, Ultherapy® treatment is becoming more and more comfortable for patients. The current Ultherapy® procedure is a new and improved treatment that increases patient comfort while remaining just as effective. While some patients may experience temporary discomfort, most leave excited to see the benefits to come.

HOW LONG DOES ULTHERAPY® TAKE?

An Ultherapy® procedure can take anywhere from 20-90 minutes depending upon the patient’s treatment plan and which area is being treated.

A face and neck procedure usually takes 60-90 minutes. A smaller area like the chin or around the eyes typically takes 20-30 minutes.

HOW MANY ULTHERAPY® TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Most patients see the expected results from only one treatment. However, some patients that suffer from more laxity may benefit from more than one treatment. Other patients may not experience as much of a biological response to the ultrasound treatment and may require more than one procedure. 

HOW DO I GET THE BEST RESULTS FROM ULTHERAPY®?

To see the best results, you’ll have to wait two to three months for your body to regenerate healthy collagen. It is also advised that you do not use anti-inflammatory medication after treatment as these may slow down the reproduction of collagen. 

HOW DOES ULTHERAPY® COMPARE TO LASER TIGHTENING?

Ultherapy® is able to reach deeper into your skin and tissue compared to laser tightening, which results in a more targeted skin lifting. 

Ultherapy® allows the practitioner to utilize ultrasound imaging to see underneath your skin and target specific areas that will benefit the most from the treatment. It is also the only skin lifting treatment suitable for those with either thin or thick skin. 

Ultherapy® delivers a more intense energy to stimulate collagen growth which results in a 100 times more powerful treatment than Thermage, Pelleve or other similar treatments. Ultherapy® is also FDA-cleared. 

WHAT ARE ALL OF THE FDA-CLEARANCES FOR ULTHERAPY®?

Lifting Indications: Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure that is FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow.

Décolletage Indication: Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared specifically to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

Imaging Indication: Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared aesthetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging to visualize dermal and subdermal layers of tissue during treatment.

WHAT DOES COLLAGEN DO? HOW DOES ULTHERAPY® STIMULATE THE CREATION OF COLLAGEN?

Collagen keeps your skin toned, firmed, and youthful. It is a natural protein that can lose its strength and firmness over time. As we age, gravity slowly pulls down our skin causing it to sag and droop. This is caused by the breakdown of collagen. Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound technology to target deep skin and tissue, which triggers your body’s natural healing process and encourages the production of new collagen and strengthens existing collagen. . 

WHEN SHOULD I RECEIVE ULTHERAPY®?

You can receive an Ultherapy® treatment at any time since there is no downtime and minimal side effects. However, in rare cases, the procedure may cause bruising, so it may not be ideal to undergo an Ultherapy® treatment prior to a special event, although bruising can easily be covered with makeup if necessary. 

WHO SHOULD NOT RECEIVE ULTHERAPY®?

Those who have any of the following conditions should not receive Ultherapy® treatments: 

  • Any area of cystic acne breakouts
  • Open wounds near the treatment area
  • Anyone looking to treat an area treated with injectable fillers within the last three months
  • Anyone who has had Botox/Dysport in areas of desired treatment within the last two weeks.
  • Anyone looking to treat an area over an active implant such as a pacemaker
