Ultherapy is one of the best-kept beauty secrets. This non-invasive treatment option allows women and men to gently tighten the skin around their neck, chest, chin, and eyebrows, allowing them to look as young as they feel inside. A non-surgical approach to tightening skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles, it also has no downtime, so you can literally come in for treatment in the morning and return to work or your other daily activities immediately afterward! What a benefit!
How Long Will You See Your Results of Ultherapy Before You Need Another Treatment?
The makers of Ultherapy themselves say the longevity of your benefits will all depend on you and your unique skin makeup. Some patients may not need additional treatments for a few years. Others may require more routine treatments in order to maintain results. To understand why there’s no “one-size-fits-all” answer to this question, it’s important to know just how Ultherapy works:
- Ultherapy is a device that applies ultrasound waves to tighten skin and promote the growth of collagen, your body’s natural rejuvenation process, to multiple layers of your skin without affecting the top layer of your skin.
- The physician’s assistant who provides your treatment will be able to see several layers beneath your skin, allowing him or her to target areas that were previously unreachable with other solutions.
- Since the top layer of your skin is unaffected, it can take 2-3 months for you to see your initial results as you wait for your outer layers of skin to exfoliate.
- It can take about 6 months total to see your final results.
What Does Ultherapy Feel Like?
Before your Ultherapy treatment, your administering physician’s assistant will apply a numbing cream to your treatment areas. Most of Dr. Sikorski’s Natural Image OC patients report that with the numbing agent, the treatment is quite tolerable. For ultimate comfort, some patients may choose to take oral prescription medication, too. The only limitation to this option is that you won’t be able to drive yourself home after your treatment if you take the oral medication, for your safety.

If you are interested in tightening up the skin of your face, neck, chin, and eyebrows without undergoing a more invasive surgical procedure, then Ultherapy might be the right solution for you!
