About Ultherapy

Swapping the tools of more invasive methods for an ultrasound wand, Blue’s Ultherapy procedure harnesses the energy produced with precise sonic waves that startle slacking collagen into rebuild mode, which in turn tightens and lifts skin and it’s underlying tissues, with no downtime.

What is Ultherapy?

This is the only cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound imaging, which allows Blue’s specialists to see the layers of tissue we’re targeting during the treatment, to ensure that the energy is being delivered to where it will be most optimal. Ultherapy’s effects have been deemed “almost supernatural,” as resuscitated collagen slowly knits together the familiar pattern of a slightly younger you. Edges softened, curves reset, time-worn circles beneath the eyes slightly diffused, and a lift that your Spanx would be jealous of. With minimal post-procedure downtime, and limited side effects if any, results begin to show in as little as 4-6 weeks, with more visible changes around the 2-3 month mark, and continuing to improve for up to 1 year post treatment. During your consultation, one of Blue’s Ultherapy specialists can advise how many treatments you may need, and if Ultherapy is right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. Ultherapy is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.

With the addition of the new Ultherapy® Décolletage Treatment, Ultherapy is also now the only non-invasive procedure specifically indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.

Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a facelift. Ultherapy is a great alternative, however, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Ultherapy uses sound energy – tried-and-true ultrasound – which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.

Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.

Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they’re actually very compatible.

Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultherapy doesn’t involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.

After your Ultherapy® Treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.

Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.

The FDA-cleared Ultherapy® procedure has been used safely in over 250,000 treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years.

A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Of course, the best way to find out if you’re an Ultherapy candidate is to consult with a practitioner.

Pre + Post Care Instructions

Pre Ultherapy Instructions
The first thing you will want to do is schedule a one-on-one consultation with an Ultherapy provider. During this session, your practitioner will address your concerns, assess your skin and determine if you are a candidate for the treatment. Once you book your Ultherapy procedure, you won’t need to follow any special preparations or skincare regimens in advance of the treatment. To enhance your comfort, your practitioner may recommend that you take an over-the-counter or prescribed medication before the treatment.
Post Ultherapy Instructions
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
