FAQ About Ultherapy
What’s the Best Age To Get This Treatment?
There is no best age to get Ultherapy, as it can be used to treat the signs of aging at any age. However, it is most effective in those who have already begun to see the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. On average, people who get this treatment are about 35-60 years old.

What Is Ultherapy?
This is a non-invasive, FDA-cleared procedure that uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen in order to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin, and brow. It can also improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
What Is Ultrasound Energy?
Ultrasound energy is a type of sound wave that is above the range of human hearing. This type of energy has been used for medical purposes for over 50 years, most notably for women during pregnancy. Ultrasound is a proven and safe technology.
How Does This Treatment Work?
This treatment works by using ultrasound energy to heat the deep layers of tissue in the skin. This stimulation causes the production of new collagen, which results in the lifting and tightening of the skin.
Collagen is a protein that helps to keep skin looking young and healthy. As we age, our collagen production decreases, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. Ultherapy helps to reverse this process by stimulating the production of new collagen.

Who Is This Treatment Not Right For?
This treatment is not recommended for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is also not recommended for those with pacemakers or other implantable devices.
What Is Treatment Like?

Why Is My Face Sagging With Age?
Collagen is a protein that helps skin stay young. As we age, our body produces less of it, and this can make your skin look older than you feel. Collagen works to repair damaged skin cells and to keep your skin looking smooth, plump, and elastic.
Elastin is another protein that works with collagen to keep your skin looking young. It allows your skin to return to its original shape after being stretched or pulled. When you are young, your body produces a lot of collagen and elastin. But as you age, these proteins break down, and your skin starts to sag.
The Benefits of Ultherapy
This therapy can provide many benefits, including:
Skin Lifting and Tightening
The main benefit of this treatment is that it causes your skin to lift and tighten. This can help to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as sagging skin. As your body produces more collagen, your skin will become firmer and more elastic.
This treatment is non-invasive, which means that there is no surgery or injection required. This makes it a safe and effective option for those who want to improve their appearance without undergoing a major procedure.
Minimal Side Effects
This treatment has none of the potential side effects of surgery, and it can’t cause an allergic reaction like some dermal fillers or neurotoxins like Botox.
One of the most important benefits of this treatment is that it helps to stimulate collagen production. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. This treatment helps to reverse the effects of aging by stimulating collagen production, which leads to firmer, more elastic skin.
