In this blog post, we’ll explore Ultherapy as an option for your skin tightening needs, as well as what you should expect before and after Ultherapy.
Let’s dive in.
Ultherapy is a safe, non-invasive lift that uses ultrasound to naturally tighten the skin in its deeper layers. There are no needles or cutting.
Endorsed and regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada, Ultherapy provides a non-invasive, downtime-free solution for counteracting the effects of gravity on the face and neck. This means you can resume your usual activities almost immediately.
While its primary purpose is skin tightening, Ultherapy also enhances skin texture.
Here’s a quick run-down of how Ultherapy works:
Ultherapy harnesses heat energy for its effects, utilizing ultrasound technology to create electromagnetic waves that heat and contract collagen fibers in deeper skin layers. This process also kickstarts the production of new collagen and elastin, resulting in tighter skin.
The overall outcome is skin tightening, along with a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines. Importantly, this method yields gradual and natural-looking results over time, avoiding an overly pulled or artificial appearance.
What's unique is its customization potential, thanks to its variable frequencies, allowing tailoring to your specific needs, whether related to texture or laxity concerns.

During your consultation, our experts will determine the most suitable course of action and potential alternatives for your desired outcome.
Right after treatment, you'll notice some tightening effects, and these effects continue to improve over the next 6 to 8 months due to increased collagen production in your body.
Age, depth of treatment, and adherence to post-treatment instructions also influence how quickly you’ll see results.
After your treatment, you may notice an immediate tightening of the skin in the treated area. You might also experience mild redness, swelling and/or tingling. These are perfectly normal and should wear out in a short time.
Here are other things to note during the post-treatment phase:
Ultherapy is an exceptional non-surgical choice for rejuvenating and tightening the skin, providing a safe avenue to boost self-confidence and embrace a refreshed version of yourself.
For us at Beacon Dermatology, Ultherapy is still the gold standard treatment for skin tightening. It’s especially effective when combined with microneedling.
