“Is Ultherapy effective? How many sessions would it take to show results? What does the recovery process look like?”
It is reasonably expected for one to consider the crucial questions before undergoing any Ultherapy skin tightening or skin lifting treatments, as many customers carry the preconceived impression that aesthetic procedures typically involve injections, incisions, and even irreversible injuries.
However, what drives consumer uncertainties is not the science, processes and innovation behind proven techniques. This general sense of doubt seems to stem from the slew of dangerous counterfeits perpetuating unverifiable claims and horror stories online.
But not all brands and treatments are created equally. In this article, we will debunk the top 5 common myths surrounding Ultherapy. All, backed by proven results and real-life case studies.
Myth #1: You’ll need multiple sessions to see results
This first myth carries the signature characteristics of most other treatments that typically require a costly package of 6 to 8 sessions for visible results.
In contrast, Ultherapy skin lifting and tightening treatments usually take just one session to effectively enable the skin to jumpstart its natural collagen production. Natural-looking results will then gradually develop over the next 2-3 months post-treatment, and the collagen-building process can continue for up to 6 months.
Follow-up studies have shown that our customers retain fresh young collagen levels even a year after their first session, which debunks the second myth on this list…
Myth #2: The results are short-lived
Customers want the assurance of credible, certified treatments with positive results. That is why Ultherapy is designed with peace-of-mind precision to deliver safe, targeted and visibly lasting improvements.
In fact, the result of just one Ultherapy session is proven to be a compounding one. Research has demonstrated that the natural collagen-building process will continue to develop increasingly for up to 6 months after treatment, with little to no follow-up needed. Depending on individual needs and skin types, a follow-up session is recommended only once a year.
Myth #3: Ultherapy is a surgical facelift
The most obvious difference between Ultherapy and a surgical facelift is in the procedures themselves. A surgical facelift, quite literally, implies that patients have to undergo invasive surgery.
Ultherapy, on the other hand, presents its key proposition as the only U.S. FDA-cleared non-surgical ultrasound treatment that deploys real-time visualisation technology to safely lift the skin on the brow, chin and neck, and to improve fine lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
With this visualisation technology, every client can now see, plan and treat together with the aesthetic physician live, in real-time.
Myth #4: Expect lengthy procedures and recovery
Wrong again. Ultherapy’s suite of hyper-personalised skin lifts is designed to be as effortless and accessible as a quick lunch-time manicure. 60 to 90 minutes is all it takes for a session on the face and neck areas.
What’s more, as the standard procedures are non-invasive, customers can resume their regular activities right after the treatment session with minimal to zero downtime. No dietary restrictions or imposing adjustments to daily skincare routines at home.
Myth #5: All Ultherapy treatments are the same
As a leading proponent of hyper-personalisation, Ultherapy believes that no one treatment should be the same because all skin types are different with varying unique needs.
Each Ultherapy treatment is customised based on what an individual requires to achieve the most optimal results. This is made possible using real-time imaging to visualise specific areas and skin depths with unrivalled clarity and precision in delivery.
With our deep visualisation technology, aestheticians can now individually assess the composition of the skin and its structure, and this enables every step of the process to be planned with total accuracy and confidence.
In the industry of generic, templated treatments, this is the Ultherapy difference.
