Ultherapy® is an innovative skin-tightening solution that achieves youthful results without surgery. Powerful ultrasound technology penetrates deep into the skin, stimulating the production of collagen to maintain your skin’s firmness and elasticity. 

The result? A natural, long-lasting lift with absolutely no downtime. 

Atlantic Skin Care has been Nova Scotia’s go-to destination for Ultherapy® for over 10 years. As the province’s most experienced cosmetic dermatology clinic, we take pride in delivering the latest innovations in cosmetic care and technology to you.

Let’s explore the science behind this treatment and how it subtly enhances your natural beauty.

What is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy® is a cosmetic procedure that combats the signs of aging by non-invasively lifting and tightening the skin. This treatment is ideal for treating lax skin and skin folds on the face, neck, brow, chin, and upper chest.

Unlike traditional surgical facelifts, this procedure does not involve incisions or general anesthesia. Instead, the treatment uses focused ultrasound energy to target the foundational layers of your skin, energizing its deeper tissues.

The body responds by sending fresh nutrients to the area, in turn stimulating new collagen production. Your skin begins to lift and tighten naturally as collagen regenerates over time, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

The use of ultrasound imaging is another unique aspect of this treatment which allows your nurse specialist at Atlantic Skin Care to visualize the targeted layers of your skin during treatment. Imaging ensures the treatment is delivered precisely where it's most beneficial, upholding both its efficacy and your safety.

Benefits of Ultherapy® at Atlantic Skin Care

We’re proud to be Nova Scotia’s ultimate destination for this state-of-the-art treatment. In addition to the treatment’s intrinsic safety profile, our Canadian College Certified dermatologists and nurses provide unmatched medical expertise to ensure you receive the best care. 

Ultherapy® distinguishes itself with several unique benefits when administered by Atlantic Skin Care’s trained medical professionals:

  • Non-Invasive. This treatment doesn’t require cuts or incisions. This means reduced risk, no scars, and minimal to no downtime post-treatment, allowing you to resume your daily activities with confidence.
  • Natural Results. The magic of this treatment lies in its ability to stimulate your body's natural collagen production. You witness a gradual transformation as collagen rebuilds over time—yielding results that are gracefully authentic.
  • Precision Targeting. The treatment’s real-time imaging ensures the ultrasound energy reaches the optimal depths of your skin to provide desired outcomes.
  • Versatility. This treatment provides a comprehensive solution to various aesthetic concerns. Ultherapy® addresses skin laxity on the face, neck, brow, chin, and upper chest.

The Ultherapy® Procedure: What to Expect

Choosing Atlantic Skin Care means full confidence that the highest level of medical training is behind every single Ultherapy® procedure.

Here’s a step-by-step glimpse into the experience:

  1. Cosmetic Consultation. You’ll meet with one of our Canadian College Certified dermatologists and nurses to discuss your unique aesthetic goals in a discrete setting. This is your moment to ask questions and address potential concerns so that you step into the procedure well-informed and at ease. After the consultation, we create a customized plan to sculpt the subtle transformation you desire.
  1. Treatment Day. Once you arrive, your nurse specialist will gently cleanse your skin and apply a smooth ultrasound gel. With the Ultherapy device in hand, your nurse specialist carefully directs focused ultrasound energy to predetermined depths of your skin, which activates collagen production. You will experience heat and tingling—an affirmation of the collagen-building process in motion.
  1. Post-Procedure & Aftercare. Your skin may exhibit slight redness immediately after the treatment, which typically subsides within a few hours. Some patients report minor swelling, tenderness, or tingling over the next few days. It's all part of the natural healing process. No specific aftercare regimen is required, but we'll provide individual guidelines to ensure your skin remains in optimal condition.

Informed decisions are beautiful decisions. At Atlantic Skin Care, we guide every step of your aesthetic journey with transparency and expertise.

Results and Duration

The allure of Ultherapy® lies in its subtle yet transformative results. Initial effects can be noticed shortly after treatment as the collagen rejuvenation process begins, but the most striking transformations emerge over 3 to 6 months. This gradual enhancement ensures the changes appear natural and authentic.

While not permanent, the results of Ultherapy® are long-lasting. Many clients enjoy a rejuvenated appearance for up to a year or even longer. And, while the natural aging process continues, annual touch-up appointments can help maintain the lift and vitality this treatment brings to the skin.

FAQs: Addressing Common Questions

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Ultherapy®:

How painful is Ultherapy®?

While everyone's threshold for pain is different, most clients describe the sensation during treatment as brief tingling or warmth. We prioritize your comfort at Atlantic Skin Care, offering numbing solutions or pain relief if needed.

How many sessions will I need?

Most clients require only one session of Ultherapy® to see results. However, depending on your unique skin and desired outcomes, we may advise additional treatments. For optimal results, we recommend booking an appointment every 12 months.

Is there any downtime?

One of this treatment’s many advantages is absolutely no downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately, making it perfect for active lifestyles.

Are there any side effects?

While side effects are rare, some patients might experience slight redness, swelling, or tenderness post-procedure. These are typically short-lived and resolve naturally.

Can Ultherapy® replace a surgical facelift?

While Ultherapy® delivers impressive skin tightening results, it doesn't replicate the extensive changes of a surgical facelift. This treatment is an excellent alternative to unveil your skin’s natural radiance with minimal invasiveness.
