Ultherapy is an FDA-approved non-invasive facelift procedure that helps lift the face and neck skin. It works by countering the effects of gravity on the skin, using the body’s natural regenerative qualities. This safe, non-surgical treatment also lifts and tightens the skin under the chin and eyebrows. Ultherapy treatment is also clinically approved for reducing wrinkles and fine lines from the neck, back, shoulders, décolletage, and chest. Individuals can get rid of wrinkles and sagging skin and get vibrant and youthful skin with ultherapy.

How does ultherapy works?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate natural collagen and elastin production in the skin. In an ultherapy procedure, a dermatologist uses an advanced ultrasound system to target the deeper skin layers. When the ultrasound energy reaches the deep skin layers in a precise concentration, it stimulates a natural healing response. This non-surgical facelift procedure is not like other non-surgical skin lifting procedures, as it can penetrate up to 4.5 mm into the skin. Moreover, it does not harm the skin’s surface and only works by utilizing its natural regenerative process.
There are many ultherapy benefits for each individual. Some benefits of ultherapy are as follows:
- Ultherapy is one of the most non-invasive techniques for skin lifting that provides excellent results.
- This skin lifting procedure is approved by the FDA.
- This non-surgical procedure does not use any harsh chemicals.
- It has minimal to no downtime after the procedure.
- Candidates will notice results after a single session.
- The results of ultherapy are natural-looking and long-lasting.
- This procedure improves the skin’s texture by reducing wrinkles.
- Ultherapy lifts and tightens the skin of the neck, under the chin, and eyebrows.
- It smooths out wrinkles and sagginess of the décolletage.
- Ultherapy fights against the effects of gravity on the skin by stimulating natural collagen production.
How much does ultherapy cost?
Ultherapy treatment is an affordable cosmetic procedure, but the price can vary from candidate to candidate. The prices vary due to cost-determining factors, such as the treatment area size, skin condition, skin type, ultherapy sessions, candidate’s desired results, etc.
At Euromed Clinic Center, the starting price of ultherapy for the face and neck ranges from 12000 AED to 14000 AED. If you want to know the exact treatment price in your case, please consult our experts.
Some candidates will start noticing ultherapy results immediately after the procedure. However, the complete results can take 2-3 months to be noticeable. It is because the new collagen keeps improving the skin texture by rejuvenating it naturally.
Although achieving results like a surgical facelift may not be possible with ultherapy, candidates can get their desired results with more than one ultherapy session.
Ultherapy Results: Before and After Treatment
Which is better: ultherapy or HIFU?
Ultherapy is older than HIFU treatment, so its results have been tested over time to prove its efficiency. It uses patented ultrasound imaging technology that is safer than HIFU. With ultherapy, practitioners can see inside the skin layers that help target the right spot. However, it is not possible with HIFU treatment.
How long does ultherapy last?
How long ultherapy effects last vary from individual to individual because the treatment stimulates natural collagen production. Generally, the results appear within 2-3 months, and they can last for as long as a year or more, depending on the individual. Moreover, regular follow-up treatments can help maintain the results.
Is ultherapy painful?
Ultherapy can cause discomfort, but the extent of discomfort varies from individual to individual. Most candidates only experience a warm sensation under the skin due to collagen stimulation. However, most practitioners use topical numbing creams to minimize the pain during treatment.
How many ultherapy sessions do I need?
The number of ultherapy sessions each candidate needs varies according to their requirements. Typically, it depends on their skin condition, the severity of sagginess, collagen-building process, etc.
When will I see the results?
Most candidates start noticing the skin lifting effect immediately after the treatment. But the results will continue to improve over the next few weeks or even months, depending on the collagen-building. Candidates will see the final results after 2-3 months, and they can last for up to 2 years.
How often should ultherapy be done?
Experts believe candidates should go for ultherapy treatment at least once a year. It should be a part of their regular skincare routine to boost collagen production and tighten the skin.
How long ultherapy results last?
Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Yearly touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process.
Which is better: ultherapy or microneedling?
Both treatments offer excellent results for different candidates. While ultherapy is slightly more expensive than microneedling, it needs fewer sessions, and its effects last longer.
Are there any side effects?
As far as ultherapy side effects are concerned, there are not severe or life-threatening. Like most minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, ultherapy may also cause redness, swelling, hypersensitivity, or tingling sensations in the treated area. But these side effects usually subside within a few hours or a day. Moreover, pain can easily be managed through painkillers, while ice packs can minimize swelling.
