Ultherapy at SCULPT Contemporary Cosmetic Surgery is a great way to get that beautiful face or neck lift. This outpatient treatment is able to lift sagging skin and improve lines and wrinkles on your face and chest.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound waves to lift and tighten the skin. Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment for lifting and tightening the skin on the neck, chin, brow, and decolletage (chest). Focused ultrasound stimulates collagen deep within the skin, with no downtime required. Ultherapy at SCULPT Cosmetic Surgery in Omaha is a natural, non-invasive way to get the younger, rejuvenated look you’ve been dreaming of!
Q. How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical lifting procedure for the face and neck that uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production deep within your skin, providing a lift from the inside out. SCULPT’s certified Ultherapy providers touch a wand to the top of your skin, which emits the ultrasound to the deeper layers of the skin and stimulates tightening. Depending on the area treated, treatments last 30-90 minutes.
Q. Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?
Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layer of skin addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a traditional or Silhouette facelift. Ultherapy is a great alternative for those who are not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery. We have found Ultherapy is a wonderful compliment to those who have received Blepharoplasty, Silhouette Face & Neck Lifts at SCULPT, as it extends the results and offers extra tightening around the desired area.
Q. How is Ultherapy different from a laser treatment?
Ultrasound uses soundwaves and is able to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by other non-invasive cosmetic treatments. 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. Laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin.
Q. What does Ultherapy feel like?
Many of our guests say Ultherapy feels like a pinch, when the provider is applying energy to the face, neck, and chest. You will be given a pain reliever and muscle relaxer before we begin the procedure, to minimize discomfort. Dr. Stanley and the SCULPT staff make sure you are comfortable during the procedure.
Q. What is the downtime for Ultherapy?
There is no downtime following Ultherapy. You can return to normal activities immediately. You may experience some redness and slight swelling following the procedures, but this should subside within a few hours.
Q. How soon can I see the effects from Ultherapy?
Many patients see tightening immediately after treatment. Ultimate results take place over two to three months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. 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.
Q. How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on your skin and ultimately, your expectations, some SCULPT guests opt to have more than one treatment, or have one treatment per year to maintain their rejuvenated and tightened skin. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.
Q. How much does Ultherapy cost?
Ultherapy prices vary based on the area treated.
