Ultherapy Q&A

What is Ultherapy? 

Ultherapy is a procedure that uses ultrasound energy, much like ultrasound imaging, to trigger a healing response deep within your skin. Rather than bouncing off structures in your body to produce an image, the sound waves in Ultherapy initiate the growth of collagen and elastin. These are two structural fibers that keep your skin firm and tight. 


During an Ultherapy procedure at sculp|MD, the handpiece sends micro-focused ultrasound waves into the areas of tissue you decide to target. The procedure causes no pain and doesn’t damage your skin or tissues in the process.


The procedure has no downtime, so you can continue your day normally as soon as you go home. For many individuals, this makes Ultherapy preferable compared to other collagen-stimulating treatments.

What are the benefits of Ultherapy?

Ultherapy has plenty of benefits, and there are a few reasons why you might consider getting the procedure at sculp|MD. The team welcomes you in for a consultation in the office at sculp|MD to discuss your goals and expectations. Then, they plan your Ultherapy procedure. 


While it won’t bring the dramatic results of cosmetic surgery, Ultherapy treats the deep tissues that are altered during certain cosmetic surgeries. Over the course of two to three months after your treatment, the collagen and elastin build gradually and can continue for up to six months. 


Ultimately, Ultherapy tones and tightens your skin while offering a subtle lifting effect thanks to the tightening. It can reduce the appearance of various wrinkles and fine lines on your face, neck, and upper chest.

How should I prepare for Ultherapy?

You can start preparing for Ultherapy by coming to sculp|MD for a consultation with the team. Ultherapy has a high safety rating and most people are good candidates, but the team makes sure you:


  • Have an appropriate level of skin laxity for the treatment
  • Don’t have any medical conditions that could compromise the treatment
  • Don’t have any medical implants or devices that could compromise the treatment
  • Have realistic expectations of the results
  • Understand how the procedure works


Prior to your Ultherapy appointment, you can continue with your normal diet and exercise routine. You should arrive at the appointment without any cosmetics on your skin.
