Welcome back to our ongoing Dear #AYA series, where our experts answer your questions about various skincare topics and treatments. Over time, gravity, sun damage, and natural aging can slow down collagen production. This can leave our skin lax and increase visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles. Here at AYA™ Medical Spa, we offer Ultherapy® Skin Tightening to help stimulate natural collagen growth to help patients achieve tighter, younger-looking skin around their necks, foreheads, and cheeks. For more information on Ultherapy® and the amazing benefits it can provide, keep reading for answers to some commonly asked we receive about Ultherapy® Skin Tightening at AYA™:
What makes Ultherapy® Skin Tightening different from other facial rejuvenation methods like cosmetic injectable treatments?
Dear Gathering Intel,
What makes Ultherapy® unique is how it approaches skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. During Ultherapy® treatments, focused ultrasound energy is used to target areas beneath the skin to promote healthy collagen regeneration. The energy is able to affect three layers (the muscle, skin, and superficial wrinkles) to stimulate collagen and elastic tissue to help provide comprehensive skin tightening results.
Ultherapy® sounds great, but are there any side effects or potential risks that I should be aware of before my treatment?
Dear Remaining Cautious,
Ultherapy® Skin Tightening treatments are FDA-approved and considered very safe. Here at AYA™, we have been performing Ultherapy® treatments for over 6 years and have a thorough understanding of how to help patients get the most out of their treatments. While your skin may look slightly irritated immediately following your treatment, Ultherapy® requires no downtime for recovery and most patients can return to their normal daily routine right away. Any side effects like bruising or numbness are generally very mild and temporary in nature.
How long after my Ultherapy® treatment can I expect to see my final results?
Dear Waiting Patiently,
After your skin tightening treatment, it can take time for the effects of your collagen production to begin to show. It generally takes between two to three months for your ultimate results to be visible. Although it’s common for patients to only undergo just one Ultherapy® treatment, some people may benefit from multiple treatments depending on their cosmetic goals and the condition of their skin.
