What Is Ulthera?

Our experts often consult with patients who say they would like to look younger naturally, without the pain, expense, or recovery of surgery. Ulthera is able to do exactly this by way of ultrasound-guided delivery of heat to the skin’s greatest collagen reservoirs, thereby stimulating the synthesis of new collagen and amplifying the collagen remodeling process. This makes up for years worth of age-related collagen loss.

Ulthera differs from similar technologies, including traditional lasers and radiofrequency devices, in that it can reach greater depths to deliver precise amounts of energy at controlled temperatures optimal for neocollagenesis. The ultrasound guided technology allows the provider to personalize your treatment. With the optimized ultrasound transducer, we can visualize the depth of your collagen reservoirs at different levels in the skin at various anatomic areas such as the eye area, face, neck, or the thicker skin of the abdomen or knees and beyond. This, in turn, results in a significant lifting of tissue over 3-6 months time.

Proven Benefits of Ulthera

Youthful skin has abundant amounts of collagen, a structural protein that acts as its scaffold, or foundation. However, as we age, a breakdown in collagen production causes the skin to sag and droop. Ulthera can renew one’s appearance by tightening lax skin and slowing the aging process.

Ulthera is a safe, effective, and non-invasive in-office procedure. With this approach, there is no need to worry about stitches, scarring, or the risks associated with general anesthesia. Immediately after your appointment, you can get right back to your busy schedule with no limitations or restrictions. We like to describe Ulthera as a “lunchtime lift” because it is so brief and minimally disruptive. There is truly no downtime and, even right after treatment, it is impossible to tell that any procedure was performed.

Dr. Marmur’s measure of whether a treatment really works is from patients and they not only love the Ulthera treatment, they book new areas to have treated every year. Combine your ulthera session with PRP or a chemical peel or any number of options.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Ulthera?

Ulthera’s results are most effective for patients who would like to reverse signs of aging, such as fine lines and mild skin laxity. An ideal candidate does not have profound sagging or severely sun-damaged skin, or does not want surgery and would like realistic results. Depending on your skin’s quality and the results you hope to achieve, we may recommend complementary procedures to make your skin look flawless. These may include, but are not limited to, dermal fillers, neurotoxins, laser resurfacing, and submental liposuction.

Ulthera has become a top choice of people who are concerned about premature aging who are looking for preventive solutions to rejuvenate their appearance without the risks and downtime associated with surgery. Ulthera is ideal for anyone seeking a subtle, natural improvement, so no one will suspect you’ve had “work done.”

What You Can Expect During and After Ulthera

Ulthera only has mild side effects. As the ultrasound energy starts taking effect, you’ll feel a warming sensation. If you are worried about any discomfort, you can ask us to apply a topical numbing cream before starting the procedure. You may experience minor redness, tenderness, tingling, sensitivity, and swelling after your treatment but these effects are temporary and should quickly resolve on their own.

As new collagen grows, Ulthera causes tissue to tighten over time. You’ll notice a difference from your forehead to your décolletage, without the hazards and healing time associated with surgery. You can expect ongoing, natural-looking improvements in your skin over the next three to six months, which can last a year or more. While Ulthera doesn’t provide the same drastic enhancements as a facelift can, it is an ideal solution for people who are unwilling to commit to a more aggressive and disruptive option.

Many of our patients enjoy outstanding results after one Ulthera appointment. However, you may wish to get maintenance treatments or selective areas boosted every six to twelve monthsto slow the natural aging process. After your Ulthera session, be careful to shield your skin from further damage by staying hydrated, avoiding tobacco products, and protecting yourself from UV exposure.

NYC Ulthera FAQs

Ulthera is less costly than most cosmetic surgeries because you do not have to pay for prescription medications, hospital privileges, nor anesthesiologist and surgeon fees. The providers at Marmur Medical will give you a more accurate estimate of your Ulthera cost during your private consultation.

Ulthera uses ultrasound energy to deliver outstanding results. It has the unique ability to reach depths other non-invasive devices cannot. By encouraging collagen production, one Ulthera treatment can provide you with noticeably elevated and lifted skin over a few months. Ulthera is an FDA-cleared tightening solution. On the other hand, laser procedures use light energy to address other concerns such as sun damage, broken vessels, freckles, and fine lines or wrinkles.

Ultimately, since Ulthera and lasers offer unique benefits to certain patients, the best course of action is to meet with one of our experts to see which will be able to help you the most. Also, if indicated, you may choose to combine these procedures to achieve even more dramatic results.

Ulthera has received FDA approval for use on the face, neck, and chest areas. We can also use Ulthera to minimize the look of a double chin – a pocket of diet- and exercise-resistant fat. Ulthera can firm and tighten your jawline without needing to undergo chin and neck liposuction.

An experienced Ulthera provider can adapt the procedure to meet your needs. For example, we can change the level at which the energy penetrates your skin. For even more dramatic results, we can also pair Ulthera with other non-surgical facial treatments like facial fillers. During your consultation, ask us about all your options. We can design a treatment plan based on your unique concerns.
