Learn about the best Ultherapy available
What is ultherapy?
Ulthera, also known as Ultherapy, is the only approved cosmetic ultrasound procedure that is available to the public. Ultherapy Toronto is a non-invasive treatment that is approved by both Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for lifting the skin on the face, neck, chin, and brow. This non-surgical facelift treatment uses focused heat guided through the ultrasound imaging to lift and tighten loose skin. The treatment operates by directing heated energy towards targeted tissues under the surface of the skin, thereby allowing the stimulation of the body’s natural production of collagen. Ultherapy Toronto is a non-surgical face lift alternative for people who do not wish to undergo cosmetic surgery.
The Ulthera procedure takes about between 1 and 2 hours for most patients, and there is minimal downtime. It can be common for patients to have minor swelling and redness in the treated area for a few days after the treatment. Ultherapy Toronto can be customized to meet your specific needs, and it is suitable for all skin types. The procedure has been demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 100,000 treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, the ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for over 50 years.
What to do to prepare for an Ultheraphy treatment
To help decide whether you’re a suitable candidate for Ultherapy, you must contact and schedule a consultation with an Ulthera specialist at Sovereign Skin. During the consultation, one of our experts will consult with you to determine whether you’re a good candidate. You will also be able to share your aesthetic goals and concerns. If you choose to move forward with booking an Ultherapy treatment, you should avoid direct sun exposure for 1 week prior to treatment and not put any self-tanning lotion on your skin. Arrive at your appointment with a makeup-free face. Immediately prior to treatment, medication can be taken to alleviate discomfort and make the procedure as tolerable as possible.
What to Expect During an Ulthera Treatment:
The duration of the treatment may vary depending on the number of areas that the Ulthera technician is treating. A typical Ultherapy treatment could take anywhere from 30 minutes to 120 minutes, depending on the area of treatment and the patient’s particular case. With minimal discomfort, the feeling of Ultherapy has been described as intense warmth with a tingling feeling. During the procedure, the Ulthera expert controls the flat surface of the ultrasound applicator over each region while delivering energy sound waves deep into the layers of the skin and soft tissues. At the same time, the upper layers of the skin are spared from the controlled damage commonly associated with laser treatments.
One of the biggest advantages of Ultherapy Toronto is that the non-surgical procedure is effective and quick.
For most patients, the recovery is not severe enough to impact their usual daily routine. Patients may notice minor swelling or redness of the skin shortly after the Ultherapy Toronto procedure. However, it will last no longer than a week. Bruising rarely occurs with Ulthera unless you are on blood-thinning medications. In most cases, patients will not have any bruising. It is also recommended that you wear sunblock anytime you are in direct sunlight, especially after the procedure. Once you are at 90 days post-treatment, your skin will have more of a smooth texture as it becomes tighter and lifted with less sagging skin. This is because it takes up to 3 months for the collagen to reproduce.
History of Ulthera
Ultherapy has been a popular treatment, because it is non-surgical and one of a kind. The ultrasound technology behind Ulthera was originally developed for tumour ablation in liver cancer patients. It was recognized that ultrasound therapy could also be used to increase collagen production in the skin, specifically the face and neck. With the precision and ability to target specific structures, the technology was bought and developed further. Ultherapy is now used as a facial rejuvenation technique by medical professionals around the globe.
How Much Does an Ultherapy Treatment Cost?
The cost of Ultherapy can vary depending on the medi-spa or physician’s clinic that you choose. At Sovereign Skin, the cost will depend on the area of the treatment. Clients can expect to pay between $750 and $5,000 at current pricing (which is subject to change without notice). The areas that the Ulthera treatment targets include the full face and neck, brow, mid-face, lower face, or simply the neck. The Ulthera cost will be determined during a Sovereign Skin consultation and will be customized based on each individual patient’s case. For some patients, a touch-up treatment at around the 3- to 6-month mark is required to reach the desired face-lifting results. Maintanence appointments once per year are recommended following the initial treatment(s). Our Ulthera costs are competitive, as we believe that the level of expertise and service quality that our Ulthera professionals can provide is excellent and above the norm.

Expected Benefits of Ultherapy
With Ulthera, you can maintain that youthful appearance and slow down the progressive aging of your skin. Some lifting and tightening results will be visible immediately following your ultherapy treatment. For complete results, it takes about 3 months for the stimulated collagen to be reproduced. After the 3-month stage, you will notice an improvement in your skin’s tone and elasticity. You should also notice a lift – a benefit of the underlying muscle layers being tightened with the ultrasound technology. As mentioned previously, to maintain the best Ultherapy results, it is recommended by most medical professionals that you touch up with 1 ulthera treatment yearly. This is because the treatment itself is non-surgical, and time marches on, meaning the aging process doesn’t stop. A yearly Ultherapy touch-up will be ideal for clients, depending on how much skin laxity they have in the face and neck area.
Possible Risks & Complications of Ultherapy Toronto
It’s always good to know and be fully informed about the possible risks and complications associated with any treatment – not just the benefits. With Ultherapy, there is the possibility of slight redness within 24 hours or so of treatment. Following the Ultherapy Toronto treatment, patients may also commonly experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness, but these are minor and temporary in nature. At Sovereign Skin, all of our Ultherapy clients are given detailed post-procedure guidelines on what to expect and how to help aid the healing process following an Ultherapy treatment. At Sovereign Skin, we pride ourselves in giving top Ultherapy results, because we pair expertise, quality of service, and appropriate safety measures to give an overall wonderful experience that limits possible risks and complications.
