Is Ultherapy Right For Me?

Ultherapy is non-invasive procedure has proven results of lifting and tightening the skin

Ultherapy, the latest beauty technology, has been performed on over 700,000 patients worldwide and has a reported 95% satisfaction rate among patients who have had the treatment. Yet many individuals wonder if the procedure is right for their aesthetic goals and if the treatment can be performed on individuals with medical conditions.

Ultherapy is safe and gentle procedure


When considering any elective surgery, pre-existing health concerns are taken into consideration. Unfortunately, there are many conditions (e.g. diabetes, metallic inserts) that can bar an otherwise healthy individual from elective cosmetic surgery. Ultherapy, however, uses gentle ultrasonic waves to direct heat no deeper than 4.5 mm into the epidermis, stimulating natural collagen production.

Patients with endocrinol or glandular conditions or disorders related to their thyroid are also typically considered undesirable candidates for elective procedures that require general anesthesia. Fortunately, Ultherapy does not affect the thyroid gland because the layer of cartilage in and around the thyroid serves as a protective shield.

Although unique Ultherapy is safe and gentle, there are still certain cases that require precautionary measures. For example, with patients who are suffering from cold sores or shingle outbreaks, preventative measures will be used to reduce adverse reaction to Ultherapy.
