Ultherapy is a non-surgical solution designed to combat the early signs of aging, particularly lax skin, due to the natural aging process and sun exposure. It effectively tightens and lifts sagging skin on the cheeks, lower face, and jaw, targeting deeper skin layers without disrupting the skin’s surface. This Health Canada-licensed procedure is uniquely tailored to lift skin in areas such as the neck, eyebrow area, under the chin, and décolletage while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

4. How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy employs cutting-edge focused ultrasound technology to enhance skin appearance. This technique penetrates deep beneath the skin’s surface, targeting underlying muscles and stimulating collagen production, resulting in firmer and tighter skin. The treatment directs gentle heat deep under the skin, lifting and tightening without any surface disruption. Furthermore, Ultherapy encourages the creation of new collagen, aiding in the maintenance of youthful skin.
5. How is Ultherapy performed?
During the procedure, a handheld device is used to deliver ultrasound waves to the subcutaneous tissue, the innermost layers of the skin. This creates thousands of tiny attachment points beneath the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis, promoting tissue regeneration. Ultherapy can reach depths of 1.5 mm, 3 mm, or 4.5 mm, depending on the patient’s goals, making it effective for smoothing and firming the face, neck, and décolleté.
7. What is recovery like after Ultherapy?
Recovery after Ultherapy is relatively minimal and painless. Patients may experience temporary flushing or slight redness during and after the treatment, which usually fades within a few hours. In some cases, there may be mild swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these symptoms are manageable and generally resolve quickly.
10. How much does Ultherapy cost in Canada?
The cost of Ultherapy can fluctuate based on several factors, including geographical location, the provider’s level of expertise, and, most notably, the specific treatment area. In Canada, the price of Ultherapy spans a range from $750 to $4,750.
