Ultherapy Q & A

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a treatment designed to lift and tighten your skin — all without the need for a single incision or injection. With this groundbreaking treatment, Dr. Johnston helps patients turn back the clock and look rejuvenated with a single procedure performed in the comfort of her office. 

Ultherapy is ideal for treating skin laxity and minimizing lines and wrinkles in the following areas:

  • Eyebrows
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Chest

If your décolleté is looking aged, your neck has telltale folds, your brows are sagging, or your chin has a bag underneath it, Dr. Johnston uses Ultherapy to help. 

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared skin lifting and tightening treatment that uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen in your skin. 

Collagen is the protein in your skin that helps it stay tight, firm, elastic, and hydrated. During our younger years, our skin produces plenty of collagen. As we age, however, collagen production slows, resulting in skin sag, fine lines, and wrinkles. 

Fortunately, you don’t have to live that way. With Ultherapy, Dr. Johnston kickstarts your body’s collagen production, tightening it and turning back the clock.

The treatment works because it sends focused ultrasound energy through the surface of your skin into the layers that produce collagen. As the energy reaches those layers, it triggers the collagen production process. 

After your Ultherapy treatment, your body goes to work. Over the next two to three months, your skin transforms as it naturally creates a new network of collagen, lifting and tightening your skin. 

What should I expect during and after my Ultherapy treatment?

One of the biggest benefits of Ultherapy is that it’s completely noninvasive. You won’t need a single incision or injection. There is no need for topical anesthetic. Heat builds up during the procedure but ice is used to reduce that heat effect.

During your treatment, you’ll relax as Dr. Johnston moves the Ultherapy device over targeted areas of your skin, sending ultrasound energy into them. Most treatments take 30-90 minutes, depending on the area you want to target. 

There is no downtime with Ultherapy. You can continue on with your usual daily activities immediately afterward. Your skin may be flushed, but that fades within a few hours.
