Pre/Post Treatment Guideline: Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. Ultherapy is intended for men and women with mild to moderate skin laxity.

PRE-TREATMENT:

  • Avoid the sun before treatment to reduce the risk of cold sores.
  • Please avoid excessive or unnecessary blood-thinning medications and supplements for 10-12 days prior to your Ultherapy appointment.
  • Active skin infection and active cystic acne are contraindications to Ultherapy. If this occurs prior to treatment, please call our office.

MEDICATIONS:

  • If medication is used for treatment (i.e. Vicodin, or Ativan) arrange for a driver.

POST-TREATMENT:

  • You are able to return to normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.
  • The skin may appear flushed immediately after treatment; however, any redness should disappear within a few hours.
  • Results will continue over the course of 3-6 months. Some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 12 months, including lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow.
  • Use daily sunscreen – (Epionce SPF 30 or SPF 50, Elta SPF 46, or ColoreScience SPF 30 or SPF 50).
  • For mild post-treatment swelling, drink plenty of water.
  • Apply Volante’s Healer Concealer and/or Arnica for any bruising or swelling.
  • For mild post-treatment tenderness and discomfort, you may use Ibuprofen, Aleve, or Tylenol.
