With our Ultherapy treatment, we can help you see many results after just one session. The entire procedure is based on ultrasound therapy – hence the name, Ultherapy. Our providers at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery will use a special tool to apply ultrasound energy to your skin. It is considered a laser therapy treatment as the device heats up your skin to transmit the energy down through the surface layers.
The entire treatment will last between 45-90 minutes and consists of this device passing back and forth over a specific area of your skin. It can be used on your face and neck and is particularly popular at dealing with saggy skin under your chin. You will feel some warmth during the treatment, but it won’t burn you or cause any pain. The heat energy triggers the natural collagen production in your skin cells. This is what produces firmer skin and effectively ‘lifts’ any saggy areas.
A huge advantage of Ultherapy is that there’s virtually no recovery time at all. Following the procedure, you can go home and carry on with your day. All we recommend is that you bring someone with you to drive you home afterward. This is merely a safety precaution, and you can continue driving around as normal once you get home.
The reason for lack of recovery time is simply due to the non-invasiveness of the procedure. No incisions are made, no anesthesia is used – there’s just a slightly warm sensation, and it’s done.
