Whenever a new and revolutionary cosmetic product or procedure hits the market, naysayers are quick to challenge its efficacy, and myths abound. Ultherapy™ is an exciting new non-invasive procedure that zaps your double chin, saggy brow or neck in just one session, making your skin appear firmer and more youthful.
Myths about a cosmetic procedure can scare you away, keeping you from achieving the defined brow, neck and jawline you desire. Learn the truth behind five common myths about Ultherapy™so you can put your mind at ease and take the next step to a more attractive version of you!
Myth #1: Ultherpy™ offers only temporary results and requires ongoing treatments.
Truth: After only one in-office session of 60 to 90 minutes, you will notice slight improvements in your skin tone and texture. Within three months firmness will noticeably improve, and within a year you will continue to produce new collagen. However, results will vary with age, sun exposure and your level of skin care. An occasional touch up session may be needed to enhance your results.
Myth #2: Ultherpy™ is a painful procedure that I may not be able to tolerate.
Truth: Ultherpy™ is a completely non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound energy to heat the muscle underlying your skin to promote collagen regeneration. In other words, the procedure helps you to naturally lift and smooth your own skin from within, smoothing out wrinkles and strengthening your skin. While there may be some discomfort, there is no scraping, peeling or scabbing, and most patients can sit through a session without experiencing significant pain.
Myth #3: It doesn’t matter who provides my Ultherpy™ treatment, the results will be the same, so I should shop around for the best price.
Truth: Cosmetic treatment centers are a dime a dozen, and many offer discounted services. However, even though Ultherpy™ is a non-invasive procedure, money should not be your primary concern. Any time you have a cosmetic treatment, you should seek out the most experienced and knowledgeable clinicians, like the professionals at Advanced Cryo NYC.
Myth #4: Ultherpy™ is a new procedure that has not yet been proven safe.
Truth: While Ultherpy™ is a relatively new skin treatment, it has been thoroughly tested and approved by the FDA. You can go to your Ultherpy session at Advanced Cryo NYC with confidence, knowing you will experience a safe procedure performed by trained and experienced professionals.
Myth #5: I will have to take time off after my Ultherapy™ treatment to recover from the procedure.
Truth: Ultherpy™ requires little to no down time, and Ultherpy™ was voted “Best In-Office Procedure” by New Beauty Magazine. You could have the procedure performed during your lunch hour and return to work the same afternoon. While you may experience mild redness or swelling in the treatment area, it should not keep you from going about your daily activities.
