Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that tightens skin by using ultrasound energy. The method involves heating the deepest layers of your skin, which encourages the production of collagen and prompts your body to produce its elastic filaments. Ulthera employs a machine that generates ultrasound and causes the tissue under your skin to swell. This raises their body temperature, which causes those muscles to constrict and strain in reaction.
You will be completely sedated during the painless process using a topical anaesthetic. Although the treatment region will first feel a little numb, this should only linger for around an hour.
As the device travels along its path, you might feel some pulling or dragging on the skin, but it’s vital to understand that this does not cause discomfort or suffering. Simply ensure that your dermatologist knows what he/she is doing.

Even though Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment, every process needs aftercare which is equally important for a long-lasting effect. Since high ultrasound energy is used, therefore patients are asked to avoid certain things mentioned below –
No Makeup for 24 hours
There are various ways that makeup items can interfere with your therapy results. They can irritate the treated area, resulting in lumps and swelling. They cause breakouts by clogging pores after attracting dirt and oil. Eventually, cosmetics slow down the healing process, making it more difficult for your skin to heal after the procedure.
Exposing to UV Rays
The effects of the treatment are interfered with by the sun, which makes the skin recover more slowly and inversely. Exposure to the sun can raise the risk of adverse effects like swelling and bruising.
Wear sunscreen with a high SPF and limit your time outdoors to protect your skin. If there is a need to go out in the hot scorching sun, then you must wear protective clothing such as a hat or long-sleeved shirt.
No Caffeine for 24 Hours
Caffeine increases your heart rate and blood pressure which can trigger side effects like nausea and dizziness. Also, caffeine constricts blood vessels, which may be interference during the treatment method as ultrasound energy heats the tissues in the underneath skin layer.
Moreover, your body needs proper detoxification after the treatment, so instead of consuming alcohol, drink healthy water and fresh fruit juices.
No Cigarette/ Nicotine
The above explanation also includes avoiding nicotine or tobacco. Tobacco can damage collagen and elastin which help in tightening the skin. The Ultherapy process enhances the collagen process, by inhaling tobacco you will attack the collagen process, thereby delaying the Ulthera process.
The treatment process takes 2-3 months to heal. However, this can also vary depending on the patient. Always consult your dermatologist. They will not only prescribe you medication, but will also educate you on using the right kind of moisturizer and cosmetics before, during, and after the treatment process.
