Collagen—the tough rubbery protein that serves as the main support system of the dermis—is responsible for making your skin firm and flexible. However, as early as your mid-thirties, you body’s natural collagen production process begins to taper off, and the quality of collagen reduces. Exposure to the sun, pollution, smoke and other free radicals further accelerate the process of collagen disintegration.
The loss of collagen often results in the skin starting to sag and the appearance of fine lines. These are most prominently seen on the face,neck, chin and décolletage.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive approach to rejuvenate your facial skin suffering from the loss of collagen. Widely tested and approved by the US-based FDA, ultrasound energy has been used effectively in the medical field for the past 50 years. Used safely in 680,000 people worldwide Ultherapy has been found to be safe and user-friendly. It is equally effective for men and women.
You can use Ultherapy to
- Lift sagging skin under the chin and neck
- Smooth the skin in the décolletage area
- Treat wrinkles in the eyebrow area
Ultherapy works by delivering focussed ultrasound energy to the foundational layer of the skin. This is the same layer that surgeons address during cosmetic surgery. Ultherapy achieves this without surgery by using the ultrasound energy to stimulate the dermis into producing fresh new collagen, while strengthening weakened collagen. Bypassing the surface of the skin, the energy is delivered at the right depth, temperature and precision, enabling you to experience optimal results. With the procedure using ultrasound imaging, which enables practitioners to see the layers of tissue that they are treating, Ultherapy ensures maximum benefit with utmost safety.
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you are likely to feel slight heat and some tingling sensation. However, there is no pain and these feelings only take place during the course of the treatment. Your dermatologist will take adequate measures to make sure that your Ultherapy experience is as pleasant as possible.
You may see results in your skin’s appearance almost immediately, but to witness the ultimate effect it will take about 2-3 months—the required time for the collagen-bulking process to kick in. You may experience some redness or numbness for a few hours post treatment. In rare cases, you may experience slight swelling for a few days, along with tenderness to touch for a few weeks. However, these symptoms are temporary with no cause to worry.
After your treatment, you will be able to resume your regular home and office routines almost immediately. Post-treatment, there are no procedures to follow through your dermatologist may advise some precautions.
Ultherapy is non-surgical and so you do not have to stay indoors.
- Avoid going out in the sun or exposing your skin and neck areas to the direct sun’s rays for the next 24 hours. Use a cap or light head cover/scarf while going out to help your skin recover faster.
- Apply sun protection and SPF 20 min before you step out.
- It may help if you take a short break from a regular or strenuous exercise routine on the next 24 hours.
- Drink a lot of water and liquids to stay hydrated.
- Avoid make up, skin creams and excessive use of soap for 24 hours after the procedure.
- Avoid alcohol before and after treatment.

Teen acne: Nothing that can’t be dealt with
Teenage years can be a pretty confusing time. There are numerous changes that take place in the body at both an emotional and physical level. One such prominent and noticeable physical change is acne. The sudden hormonal changes during puberty often lead to an increase in the skin’s oil (sebum) production. The sebum produced mixes with dead skin cells, clogs pores, and traps bacteria within the skin causing acne or pimples—resulting in acne becoming a mainstay…READ MORE
