Your Questions Answered: Is Ultherapy Safe?

Dr. Sunanda Chugh answers your most pressing Ultherapy questions.

There has been a lot of buzz in the news lately about Ultherapy – the only FDA-approved non-surgical procedure for lifting the skin of the face and neck. Because this is not the first time technology has surfaced that promises to lift and tighten the skin, many of you are wondering about the safety of this “miracle” procedure.

First, let’s examine this matter of Ultherapy being FDA-approved. That approval would not have come without extensive clinical trials testing the safety and efficacy of this procedure. Also of note is that over 100,000 Ultherapy procedures have been performed to date, and the number is growing. Recipients of this treatment – both men and women – are thrilled to discover this alternative to cosmetic surgery.

Another point of concern you may have is whether Ultherapy is painful. Ultherapy was specifically designed to deliver the most comfortable treatment possible. NOTE: In order for collagen production to be stimulated, there has to be a transference of energy (e.g. heat). That sensation will vary in comfort from patient to patient. Any discomfort felt during treatment is temporary; but, it’s also a good thing as it is a positive indication that the ultrasound energy has reached the deep layers of skin and underlying tissue above the muscles. When necessary, patients with a low pain threshold find that taking 800 mg of Advil or Motrin is sufficient to tolerate treatment.

At times Ultherapy has been compared to Thermage. This comparison is inaccurate as Thermage uses an older radiofrequency energy delivery system which does not go as deep into the skin as Ulthera and is not as effective.  Ulthera utilizes external ultrasound energy delivery technology to bring about retraction of deep tissues underneath the skin and stimulation of collagen, offering consistent and impressive clinical results similar to surgery.
