How Safe Is Ultherapy?

There has been a lot of media hype about the new innovative cosmetic procedure, Ultherapy

Ultherapy has been the recipient of Hollywood celebrities’ praise to the focus of many daytime talk shows. Yet many people are wondering about the safety of this popular procedure. There have been several clinical studies to evaluate the safety of the procedure, and over half a million people worldwide have had the procedure, boasting a 95% patient satisfaction rate. Ultherapy has been approved by Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a safe and effective non-invasive procedure to lift and tighten the skin.

Ultherapy is a safe alternative to plastic surgery

Non-invasive Ultherapy Procedure

While Ultherapy is an effective way to rejuvenate skin for people who wish to avoid invasive procedures, there are some instances, such as extremely damaged or scarred tissue, where it may be advantageous to use Ultherapy in concert with an injectable procedure to replace lost volume.

When considering rejuvenating cosmetic procedures, most patients are understandably concerned with the inherent risks of undergoing any invasive surgical procedure. Even routine plastic surgery can carry serious risks, which deters some prospective patients from undergoing any elective surgeries. In contrast, Ultherapy requires no general anesthetic, it is non invasive, and it does not create scar tissue, which is a common occurrence in invasive surgical procedures, often requiring a second surgery to repair. Other common effects of cosmetic surgery include post surgical bleeding, incision site infections, tissue trauma, and nerve damage. Non-invasive Ultherapy carries none of these cautions, making it a safe alternative to plastic surgery.

Another advantage to choosing unique Ultherapy over invasive surgery is recovery time. While it can take 4 weeks or more to recover from a full surgical procedure, safe and gentle Ultherapy boasts zero recovery time. This allows recipients to continue with everyday life uninterrupted.

During and After Ultherapy Procedure

In most cases, Ultherapy can be administered within 30 to 60 minutes, which is shockingly rapid compared to invasive surgical procedures, which require several hours to complete, not including hours of preparation and convalescence. Existing patients report being very comfortable during the procedure, although some minimal discomfort was experienced, usually described as a feeling of intense warmth. While temporary mild discomfort can occur, Ultherapy is pain-free, safe, and gentle, and no foreign substances are involved. Immediately following Ultherapy, some redness of the skin is common
