If you want to reduce lines and wrinkles on your face but don’t want to get a facelift, Ultherapy is a great non-surgical alternative. However, some people hesitate to get Ultherapy. This is often due to some misconceptions surrounding the treatment.
1. Ultherapy Is Painful
Ultherapy is not a painful treatment. It’s just simply uncomfortable. When the micro-currents go into your skin, it can feel hot or tingly, or almost like a muscle is being worked. However, the treatment doesn’t hurt at all. Anesthesia is not required.
If a patient has really tight or sensitive skin, a topical anesthetic cream can be applied before the Ultherapy treatment. This is only recommended for patients that are very uncomfortable with tingling.
2. The Effects of Ultherapy Are Not Long-Lasting
Ultherapy has been shown to be very effective. It was first introduced in Europe, and since then, it has become the most popular non-surgical facial treatment.
When used on the forehead, the results can last up to 2 years. This means that if you get the treatment done this year and then get it done again next year, you will see no or significantly fewer results. That is because the first treatment brings back the collagen in your skin. The second treatment will replenish the collagen.
But if you only get the treatment done once, it lasts significantly longer. The results show that Ultherapy can last for up to 4 years for a 50-year-old. It’s important to realize that the longevity of Ultherapy is dependent on your age, gender, and skin condition.
3. Ultherapy Is Too Expensive
With the many different options out there, it can be hard to know which is the best treatment to get. Although Ultherapy is a bit more expensive than some treatments, it’s actually one of the most affordable treatments.
It lasts a long time, has no downtime, and is a minimally invasive procedure, which means you are going to save a lot of money on future treatments. Other treatments can be done every few months, and with Ultherapy, it can be done only once.
4. Ultherapy Is the Same as Getting a Facelift
This is one of the biggest misconceptions about Ultherapy. People think that Ultherapy is the same thing as a facelift. While Ultherapy can be used to treat the same areas as a facelift, it does not replace facial surgery. The results are different as well.
Ultherapy brings back the collagen in your skin; it doesn’t replace it. The result of Ultherapy is a more natural-looking face. There are minimal incisions, which have minimal visibility and the recovery time is shorter.
5. Ultherapy Is Not Safe
If you are nervous about getting Ultherapy because you think it is not safe, you can put your mind at ease. Ultherapy has been approved by the FDA and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). It’s one of the safest non-surgical alternatives.
There are many misconceptions surrounding Ultherapy. Knowing the truth about the treatment and all its benefits can be a great way to help you decide if Ultherapy is the right treatment for you. If you think it is, the best thing you can do is to talk to a clinician to find out if you are a good candidate and if it’s the right treatment for you.
