Ultherapy Q & A

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy uses proven ultrasound technology to tighten and lift your skin, and reverse the signs of aging, without surgery.* The advanced technology behind Ultherapy combines traditional ultrasound imaging with modern ultrasound treatment therapy.

During Ultherapy treatments, the system’s handheld device sends ultrasound waves deep down into your skin tissues. This effect triggers a natural healing response where your skin cells jump into action and regenerate new tissues, including collagen. Because Dr. Rigor can watch the monitor to see precisely which tissues he’s treating, your session is tailored to you to ensure optimal results.

Which areas can Ultherapy treat?

Ultherapy is safe and effective for reversing the signs of aging and taking years off your skin. You can get Ultherapy sessions to:

  • Define your jawline
  • Lift your eyebrows
  • Tighten your face and neck
  • Minimize lines and wrinkles on your décolletage

Dr. Rigor customizes your Ultherapy treatment packages based on your specific needs and desired outcome. Since results are natural and gradual, it won’t look like you had work done.

When will I have results with Ultherapy?

You’re probably going to notice an improvement in your skin’s appearance and texture shortly after your very first Ultherapy session at Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center. In most cases though, it takes up to 2-3 months to experience dramatic benefits, since it takes your body time to create new collagen and skin tissues.

How many Ultherapy sessions do I need?

In most cases, Dr. Rigor can help you achieve your desired outcome after a single Ultherapy session. If you have deep grooves and wrinkles, or sagging skin, though, Dr. Rigor could suggest a series of about 2-3 monthly treatments.

The results you experience with Ultherapy are permanent since your body is building new tissues. But you’re still going to continue to age, and new skin imperfections could develop. Dr. Rigor might suggest touch-up Ultherapy treatments about once or twice a year, so you can continue enjoying your tighter, younger-looking skin.
