What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a revolutionary, FDA-approved treatment that uses ultrasound to lift and tighten sagging skin without the need for invasive surgery. This powerful technology can transform your facial features – including neck and chest areas – allowing you to bring out your natural beauty with minimal discomfort or downtime.

How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy works by targeting the deep layers of skin, known as the dermis and subcutaneous fat, with small amounts of focused ultrasound energy. This energy is precisely delivered via a handheld device that helps create thermal coagulation points within the targeted tissue. The heat generated from the ultrasound technology pulses helps to stimulate collagen production in the skin’s underlying tissues, which gradually tightens and lifts sagging skin.
Ultherapy Is Used to Tighten Loose Skin
Studies have shown that Ultherapy is effective in creating a more youthful appearance by reducing wrinkles, and sagging skin and improving overall facial contour. Patients typically experience immediate tightening and lifting of their skin after the treatment, however, it can take up to three months for full effects to be seen.
Ultherapy Treatments use ultrasound energy to reverse the natural aging process as one of the only non invasive treatment options of its kind. Most patients see results after the initial treatment, but some may need more to see the full results of the ultrasound therapy.
What can I expect during an Ultherapy treatment?
When Will I See the Results?
Following an Ultherapy treatment, you may be pleased with a tightening and lifting of the skin immediately. However, the full effects are most noticeably observed in three to six months as your collagen production encourages rejuvenation – providing even greater levels of youthful radiance.
Is Ultherapy safe?
The FDA has cleared Ultherapy for use in the United States, which means that the non invasive treatment has been determined to be safe for use in humans. In addition, Ultherapy has been used safely in Europe and Asia for several years. The vast majority of people who undergo Ultherapy experience no serious side effects. The most common side effects are mild and include redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the treatment site. These side effects typically resolve within a few days to a week.
In rare cases, more serious side effects have been reported. These include nerve damage, skin burns, and ulcers. However, these side effects are extremely rare and are usually the result of incorrect application of the treatment by an inexperienced provider. When performed by a trained and experienced provider, Ultherapy is a safe and effective treatment with minimal risk of serious side effects.

How Do I know If I’m a candidate for Ultherapy?
A great candidate for Ultherapy treatment is someone looking to reduce wrinkles, sagging skin and to improve their overall facial contours.
The treatment is ideal for those in their mid-30s and 40s who are beginning to notice signs of aging and want to address them in a minimally invasive way or non invasive way. Many patients are choosing Ultherapy in place of a surgical facelift.
It is also suitable for those who have already had some form of cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift, but wish to restore lost volume and further tighten the skin without having a repeat procedure.
However, only a licensed professional can tell you if you are a great candidate. That’s why we offer complimentary consultations at Indulgence. Call us today to see how we can help you meet your skin goals!
