Do Ultherapy treatments hurt?

Are you looking for a fast and effective facial rejuvenation treatment with no incisions and no downtime? Ultherapy may be the solution for you. Since gaining FDA approval in 2012, Ultherapy has become one of the most popular options for facial renewal, because it works fast, and the results are beautiful and natural. But do Ultherapy treatments hurt.

Ultherapy is a non-invasive aesthetic treatment that is designed to lift and firm the skin. It is indicated for use on the face, neck, and décolletage.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to penetrate the deep tissue layers below the facial muscles, where it lifts the skin, and also stimulates collagen production. Once new collagen is being produced, the skin will start to look younger and tighter.

The best candidates for Ultherapy are people with mild skin laxity, who are just beginning to show signs of age.

Do Ultherapy treatments hurt
Ultherapy treatments are not painful, but there will be some discomfort. You can expect to feel a tingling sensation, as the focused ultrasound energy penetrates to the deepest layers of the skin. This sensation is an indication that the collagen remodeling process has started.

Patients that have undergone Ultherapy say that it feels a lot like an elastic band being snapped against the skin. However, there is no lingering pain after the treatment is over.

If you think Ultherapy may be right for you, consult with an experienced provider that knows the technology well, and is committed to ensuring that you have a comfortable time during treatment.

If you don’t want a facelift, or would prefer to put off surgery for a while, Ultherapy can give your face the uplift you’re looking for.

How much do Ultherapy treatments typically cost?

Ultherapy has quickly become a sought-after skin rejuvenation treatment by people in search of a non-invasive way to restore the youthful appearance of the skin. Ultherapy gives great results without surgery, and that’s why it has become a favorite of patients and dermatologists alike. But how does the treatment work, and how much do Ultherapy treatments typically cost?

What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical facial treatment that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. The two-fold action of the Ulthera device sets it apart from other facial rejuvenation treatments that only tighten the skin.

The focused ultrasound energy penetrates down to the foundational tissue layer of the skin, and delivers just the right amount of heat to create a lifting effect. The ultrasound energy also causes the skin to contract, and stimulates the collagen fibers. As collagen builds over the following months, there is a noticeable improvement in the tone and texture of the skin.

Ultherapy treatment uses uniqueultrasound imaging, which allows physicians to see the layers of the skin being treated, and direct the energy where needed.

Is it painful?
The treatment is generally not painful, but patients will feel some heat as the ultrasound energy is deposited in the tissues below the skin.

How much do Ultherapy treatments cost
The cost of Ultherapy treatments varies depending on the extent of the area being treated. The cost will also differ depending on where you live. Treating the face and neck can cost anywhere from $2,500 to $4,000.00. If you are treating a smaller area such as the region around the mouth, the cost can range from $500 to $1,000.

Ultherapy skin rejuvenation treatment is available in the greater Atlanta metro area at Skin Cancer Specialists.
