Many of our patients are thrilled with the rejuvenating effects of Botox and Dermal Fillers. These treatments can smooth out wrinkles, fill in sunken areas, and give a youthful appearance. Yet, for some, there's a desire to achieve a lift that injectables on their own can't quite provide. This is where Ultherapy steps in.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten sagging skin. Ideal for areas like the eyebrows, jawline, and jowls, this treatment delves deep beneath the skin's surface. By targeting and heating the underlying tissues, Ultherapy stimulates the body's natural collagen production, leading to firmer, tighter skin.
However, it's important to differentiate between what Ultherapy does and what dermal fillers offer. While Ultherapy is fantastic for tightening tissue, it doesn't add volume. Conversely, dermal fillers excel in restoring volume to facial areas like the cheeks, nasal folds, eye area, and jawline. When used in both combined, these two treatments can reflect the results of a non-surgical facelift, offering a comprehensive solution for those looking for a youthful boost.
That said, an unresolved question in the skin community is whether Ultherapy influences dermal fillers, potentially dissolving them. As of now, this topic remains under study. It's essential for patients to consult with their dermatologist or skincare specialist to understand the best treatment plan personalized to their needs.
There is no conclusive evidence from clinical studies that show that Ultherapy dissolves dermal fillers. In fact, some sources mention that there are no actual studies performed on this topic. It is generally believed that Ultherapy does not influence existing fillers. It is always recommended to consult with a qualified healthcare professional or dermatologist for personalized advice regarding your specific situation.
No, Ultherapy does not melt fat in the face. It is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that uses ultrasound energy to heat up the deep layers of the skin. This heat stimulates the production of new collagen, which can help to lift and tighten the skin.
Ultherapy is not a fat-reduction procedure. It does not target the fat cells in the face. In fact, some experts believe that Ultherapy can actually help to preserve facial fat by stimulating the production of new collagen.
The risks of getting Ultherapy after dermal fillers are generally considered to be low. However, Mild filler degradation is possible. Some patients who have had dermal fillers may experience mild filler degradation with Ultherapy.
It is generally recommended to wait at least 4 weeks after getting dermal fillers before having Ultherapy. This will give the fillers time to settle in and reduce the risk of them being displaced by the Ultherapy treatment.
In some cases, your doctor may recommend waiting longer, such as 6 months or even a year. This is especially important if you are getting Ultherapy in the same areas where you have had dermal fillers. The heat from Ultherapy can cause dermal fillers to break down prematurely, so it is important to give them enough time to fully absorb.
If you are unsure about how long to wait after getting dermal fillers before having Ultherapy, it is always best to talk to your doctor. They can help you to determine the best course of action for your individual needs.
