Ulthera / Ultherapy Treatments
Treating Skin’s Deep Support Structures with Energy
Elizabeth Roche MD Medspa of Bergen County, NJ, prides itself on bringing new aesthetic treatments to our clients, which is why we’re pleased to be one of the few medical aesthetic centers to offer Ulthera. Ulthera is sometimes called an ultrasound face lift, but is actually a type of non-surgical face lift that gently builds and restores collagen strength using the body’s own healing power. Tired, sagging skin is toned from within using 100% safe ultrasound therapy to restore youthfulness and tightness. Because Ulthera utilizes the same technology as traditional ultrasounds, we can precisely target the areas of the skin that will benefit most from ultrasound therapy. The surface of your skin remains undisturbed as we deliver low levels of focused heat at just the right depth below the skin to achieve a more beautiful, refreshed, and youthful look. There can be meaningful results the day after treatment, though building and restoration of collagen strength back to optimal levels most often takes two to three months, with full results visible at six months after the procedure.
What is an Ulthera session like?
No special preparation is necessary before a session. Ulthera ultrasound therapy typically takes 30-60 minutes, during which a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen that allows your practitioner to focus on areas of need. The same applicator is then used to deliver low levels of focused heat at just the right depth below the skin. Most patients report little discomfort during the procedure, but comfort thresholds can vary. We’ll do everything possible to ensure that your Ulthera session is comfortable and relaxing.
What can I expect after an Ulthera session?
Our Ulthera therapy patients typically end their sessions comfortable and happy with the results. You can resume your normal activities immediately after your session, but you may experience temporary and mild flushing of the skin, light swelling, or tenderness that should subside in hours or in some cases, days.
Is ultrasound therapy safe?
Ultrasound energy has been used medically for over 50 years, and Ulthera underwent numerous clinical trials before coming to market to demonstrate its safety in this application.
What kind of results can I expect with Ulthera?
The regenerative process of college strengthening and restoration begins after only one Ulthera therapy treatment, but optimal results will be visible in three to six months. Some patients may benefit from more than one treatment. You will notice that loose skin gradually lifts and becomes more tone, eyes will look more open and youthful, and overall firmness will be restored to your face and neck. This occurs because your own skin is creating new collagen, just like it did when you were in your teens.
