Ultherapy Q & A

What is Ultherapy®️?

Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure that lifts the sagging skin around your brows, chin, chest, or neck by stimulating deep skin collagen growth using focused ultrasound waves. It’s the only non-invasive FDA-cleared treatment for use on wrinkles and lines on the chest.

Because Ultherapy uses traditional ultrasound technology, during treatment, Dr. Choi can also see imaging of your skin tissue. This imaging helps him pinpoint exactly where you need treatment and the ideal intensity.

Why is Ultherapy better than a facelift?

While not as drastic as a surgical facelift, Ultherapy works by addressing the same foundational layer of skin as cosmetic surgery. It offers advantages over a traditional facelift, including:

  • No downtime
  • Noninvasive
  • No needles
  • All natural results
  • Lower risks
  • Lower costs

Also, you typically only require one Ultherapy session. This session generally takes less than an hour. If you’re interested in regaining a youthful look without the hassle and risks of surgery, Ultherapy at SoCal OB/GYN may be perfect for you.

Why is Ultherapy better than laser therapy or radiofrequency therapy?

Ultherapy, laser therapy, and radiofrequency therapy are all great options, depending on your requirements, skin health, and concerns. However, Ultherapy outshines them because ultrasound energy bypasses the surface of the skin, going directly to the foundational tissue layer to stimulate collagen growth.

Ultherapy is also more intuitive than other noninvasive skin therapy options. It delivers its ultrasound energy to different areas and depths of the body, at different temperatures for ideal response.

Does Ultherapy have any side effects?

Though Dr. Choi delivers your treatment with care and expertise, as with any treatment, you may experience some side effects afterward. The most common side effects of Ultherapy treatment are temporary. They include:

  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Nerve effects

If you’re experiencing unusual side effects, or you believe yours are abnormally severe, reach out to Dr. Choi right away.
