Ultherapy is safe for all skin types
Thank you for your questions. Ultherapy is safe and effective for all skin types. Each patient’s skin will respond differently to this thermal energy, but you can see an immediate change and progressive improvement as the new collagen grows. It could take 2 to 3 months to see the full results. Your doctor will determine with you how many sessions you'll need. As for possible side effects, there may be some initial redness or a small degree of tenderness and swelling, but these will resolve quickly. In rare cases, there could be bruising or temporary numbness. Ultherapy requires no downtime, and patients are typically able to leave their doctor’s office and resume their normal daily activities. Each person's experience is different, so while most people experience no more than a prickling heat sensation, others will need some pain management from their doctor.
Ultherapy for all skin types
This procedure is safe on all skin types. Ultherapy introduces ultrasound energy directly underneath the dermis to target loose skin. This treatment can help with production of collagen as well as tightening. Unlike other laser treatments this does not interfere with skin pigmentation.

Ultherapy is Safe for all Skin Types
Yes, Ultherapy is completely safe for all skin types. It leaves the top layer of the skin intact and delivers the energy directly to the depth of the transducer that’s being used, leaving all surrounding tissue intact. This is part of the reason Ultherapy is so effective. This technology allows for the temperatures to be much higher because its directed to only this exact location chosen and does not damage the areas around it. We have found it to be the most effective and safe non-surgical skin tightening treatment available.

The number of sessions vary based on the patient's age, severity of skin laxity and their adherence to a medical grade skin care routine. I recommend that you have an in person consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon that has an Ultherapy expert at the practice.
In our practice we use a cryotherapy unit which makes the procedure much more tolerable.
HIFU Ultherapy is colour blind.
In fact there are some studies to suggest that darker skin types such as Asian-Ethnic and African skin do better with these devices because of our exaggerated collagen contraction. So, yes, Ultherapy is super safe. For the best results, see a board certified Plastics or Dermatologist who performs this procedure,
