About Ultherapy

If your skin is not as firm as it used to be, Bensimon Center can help to improve its laxity with Ultherapy, a noninvasive, nonsurgical intervention for loose facial, neck, and chin skin. This popular treatment at Bensimon Center is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Ultherapy's ultrasound energy can change the elasticity of your skin with a 30 – 90-minute session. After your appointment and as your skin begins to heal itself, your body goes into a natural collagen production mode to repair the skin. Plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Bensimon is proud to offer Ultherapy to Portland, OR men and women. This procedure can be used in combination with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing or an injectable to leave the skin looking softer and younger.

Ideal Candidates

Men and women can both benefit from ultherapy treatments. If you have noticed that your facial skin has become more lax with mild to moderate lines (around the eyes, brow, and mouth), or noticing a slight droop in the jowls, you may be a good candidate for this nonsurgical treatment. If you have severe sagging or deeper lines and wrinkles, a surgical facelift may be a more suitable option for you.

Procedure Technique

When you arrive, you will be asked to lie down and relax in our treatment room where we will prepare your face or neck area, which may include the application of a numbing agent. During the procedure, a handheld device that emits ultrasound energy will glide over your skin. Depending on the number of areas you are having treated, your sessions may last around 30 – 90 minutes. 

What to Expect

After your treatment, It is normal for your skin to appear slightly pink and swollen. You can use ice packs and take an over-the-counter pain medication to decrease the pain and inflammation. You may also apply makeup after your appointment and resume your day as usual. This cosmetic procedure will not show results immediately. It will take some time for your skin to heal and adjust after the treatment. With the boost in collagen, the skin will tighten in about 4-6 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Ultherapy cost?
The cost of your Ultherapy treatment will rely on your unique needs and the number of areas being addressed. During your first visit, we will discuss the recommended number of treatments and your estimated costs. Bensimon Center accepts many forms of payment and can help you find low-interest medical financing through CareCredit.com.

What areas does Ultherapy treat?
Ultherapy can treat a variety of areas, including the chest, neck, and face. Ultherapy is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment to address loose skin for a tighter, younger-looking appearance. Ultherapy is great to either reduce signs of aging in your skin or prevent the development of problems, like lines and wrinkles.

Who should get Ultherapy?
Anyone who wants healthier skin, including better tone, can benefit from Ultherapy. The results will be gradual, but the quality of improvement is significant as the healing starts within the skin. It is an ideal treatment for those who still have a good skin tone but are beginning to see signs of skin laxity. Most commonly, those who are between the ages of 30 – 45 seek this treatment to slow down aging effects and is also used in older patients alone or in combination with other procedures to help tighten the skin and stimulate collagen. 

Will I see results from Ultherapy right away?
Immediate improvement will not be readily seen right after your first Ultherapy treatment. Optimal results become more noticeable after a few months. Typically, most patients opt to have a repeat treatment around 12 months after their initial session.

Do I need multiple Ultherapy treatments?
The number of sessions needed depends on your skin condition and aesthetic goals. Generally, most patients who still have a good skin tone can have significant results with a single treatment. For those who show more symptoms of aging, several treatments may be needed to produce the desired result.
