Our Ultherapy Service
Rocky Mountain Skin Care Clinic is proud to offer Ultherapy, a unique cosmetic treatment that will aid you in not only looking younger, but in helping you to continue to look youthful as time goes on. Without cutting into the skin or using needles, Ultherapy safely and effectively uses ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the skin. It works with the tissue beneath the surface to encourage growth of collagen. Your skin will be more firm and flexible as a result.

- Skin lifting around the chin
- Skin lifting around the lips
- Reducing and erasing lines
- Stimulating collagen production
Why should I use Ultherapy?
Unlike other cosmetic ultrasound procedures, Ultherapy is FDA-approved. If you’re not interested in invasive, surgical treatments, or the use of lasers, it is both safe and easy to accomplish. Hundreds of thousands of these procedures are performed worldwide, and it is trusted and proven in clinical trials. It is not painful, with the worst discomfort generally being light jolts or uncomfortable heat, both of which are mild and short-lived. Both during and after the treatment, there are methods to deal with the discomfort which can be discussed with your technician.
How does the Ultherapy treatment work?
Ultherapy is actually very easy to prepare for. All that is required prior to the first treatment is to make sure the treated area does not have any open injuries, noticeable cystic acne, or implants beneath the surface. Nothing else needs to be done prior to the procedure. During the treatment, focus ultrasound energy will be used to work with the tissue beneath the skin, encouraging positive collagen growth and applying energy to where it will help the most.
After the treatment, the area that was worked with will tend to be extra sensitive and even slightly swollen. However, this discomfort should be gone within a short period of a couple of hours. Sunscreen is encouraged on the treated skin to protect from any sunburns. After treatment, you will be able to continue with your normal life without issue, no waiting or recovery time needed.
After the very first treatment, it is possible to see differences. But, you will usually see the results you’re looking for within twelve to eighteen months. Like with other therapies, optimal results with Ultherapy will depend on your body and how it responds to the treatment. After a proper treatment course, you can take advantage of your healthier, youthful looking skin. We also recommend making sure you follow up with future treatments for touch ups and maintenance as needed.
