Does Ultherapy Hurt?

If you’d like to rejuvenate your appearance, but you’re not quite ready for surgery, Ultherapy may be a good alternative for you. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that can provide subtle, natural looking facial rejuvenation without incisions or downtime. But some non-surgical treatments can be painful, but does Ultherapy hurt.

How Ultherapy rejuvenates the skin
Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin. The focused ultrasound energy is delivered to the deep support layers under the skin, but does not affect the surface of the skin. The ultrasound energy causes the collagen in the skin to contract, and also stimulates the production of new collagen.

The treatment takes about 90 minutes to complete, after which there is no downtime, so patients can resume normal activities right away. The skin will gradually become tighter and more toned over the following 2-3 months, and improvements may continue for up to 6 months.

Does Ultherapy hurt?
Patients can expect to feel some discomfort during Ultherapy, as the ultrasound energy is delivered below the skin. Some patients say the pulses of energy feel like warm sensations andincrease in intensity for brief periods, while others describe the discomfort as generally mild.

It’s obvious that the level of discomfort during Ultherapy treatment won’t be the same for each patient, as pain thresholds vary. However, patients that are especially sensitive may consult with their doctor about taking some type of pain medication before treatment. This will help to minimize the discomfort.
