Can Ultherapy cause damage if done improperly w/improper technique or is it a fail safe procedure that any provider can perform?
Doctor Answers 6
Ultherapy results are definitely technician dependent. It is important to have your treatment by a provider that specializes in Ulthera. In my practice, our Physician Assistant performs the procedure. An Ultherapy treatment plan also needs to be tailored to each person based on their skin laxity, age, health status and skin care regimen. There are risks with Ulthera if performed in the wrong hands. In our practice, the results are amazing. Good Luck.
Ultherapy isn't fail safe and needs a trained operator for best success!
While Ultherapy is very safe when done correctly, there is no way that it is safe under any hands and with any operator. Ultherapy is a serious procedure and, as with any procedure, it is imperative to have it done by a doctor who is skilled or assistants (we use our PAs in my clinic) who have been thoroughly trained. Good luck!
Expertise highly recommended
As with any cosmetic procedures, it is critical to have your procedure performed by a skilled professional who is an expert in the type of treatment you are interested in. The one size fits all concept does not apply to laser treatments as every machine and every treatment type requires extensive training and knowledge in addition to customized treatment plans for individual patients. I would not risk injuring your face with an uninformed decision by going to an inadequate provider. When you are exploring the options of a cosmetic facial procedure, make sure that you also explore the right type of cosmetic surgeon to perform your treatment. A facial plastic surgeon is a cosmetic doctor that is an expert strictly in the head and neck and will most likely have advantageous knowledge on the best treatment plan for your concerns.
Ultherapy works by heating small targeted amounts of soft tissue below the surface of the skin to a point where the tissue will contract and the body will create new collagen. In order to achieve a significant lifting effect, the right amount of heat needs to be delivered to the right depths of tissue, and only Ultherapy is capable of accomplishing both--without injuring the surface of the skin.
Best of luck!
