What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy in Maui is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, face, neck, and under the chin. It is the only FDA-approved procedure to lift skin on these areas non-surgically and has no downtime. A consultation is required to determine your individual treatment plan.
How does Ultherapy treatment work?
Ultherapy uses medical ultrasound technology which passes beneath the skin to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin. Two passes are typically performed, one in the deeper tissue and a second closer to the surface to give lift and tightening in a single treatment.
Am I an Ideal Candidate for Ultherapy?
Patients with loose skin and wrinkles can greatly benefit from Ultherapy sessions. If you are in your 30s and notice sagging around your brows, chin, neck, or decolletage, consider Ultherapy. Ultherapy is also recommended for individuals who do not want to undergo surgical procedures and experience lengthy downtime/recovery time.
Your Ultherapy Consultation
During your consultation, you will tell us about your cosmetic needs and goals. A physical examination of your neck or other target areas will be performed, and your skin elasticity will be assessed. Your medical history will be reviewed to ensure you have no underlying conditions that could interfere with your healing.
We will also walk you through the details of the Ultherapy treatment process from start to finish. If you have any questions, we will be happy to answer.
What can I expect when receiving treatment?
Ultherapy is performed using a smooth handheld device that your certified technician will hold against your skin. This device captures an image of the deep layers of your skin and projects it onto a screen. The technician performing the procedure will look at this image to determine exactly where treatment is required. Using the same handheld device, low levels of focused heat are delivered to the area that needs treatment. Patients report feeling sensations of prickling or warmth beneath the skin when the ultrasound energy is delivered into the tissue. The whole procedure takes between an hour to an hour and a half or so depending on the areas being treated. Most patients require only one session to obtain their desired results, although some will repeat the treatment depending on their degree of skin laxity and desired outcome.
What are the side effects of Ultherapy?
Following treatment with Ultherapy, patients are able to immediately resume their normal daily activities. Some patients may experience mild redness and slight swelling but this should disappear within hours. Slight tenderness under the areas of treatment is normal. Tingling and numbness are also normal for some patients and resolve on their own.
What improvement will I see?
The results of Ultherapy build over two to three months following the procedure. Trials have shown that nine out of ten patients experienced noticeable lifting in the brow line which made the eyes look more open. Patients also tend to experience firmer, tighter skin, lifting and tightening under the chin, and a smoother texture with a more even skin tone.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients will require only one session to obtain their desired results, although some will repeat the treatment depending on their degree of skin laxity and desired outcome.
Cost of Ultherapy Treatments
The cost of Ultherapy treatments in Maui is much more affordable than a facelift. The overall price may be impacted by the number and size of target areas and the number of sessions required to achieve the desired results.
