What Is The Ulthera Device?
What Is The Ulthera Device?
The Ulthera device is an ultrasound instrument used for Ultherapy at The Dr Lanzer Clinic; this is a treatment that stimulates the production of collagen in the deeper skin layers, subsequently producing a younger and more radiant skin.
There are many patients that could benefit from Ultherapy with the Ulthera device. If you would like to obtain more information about this treatment, please read the overview provided by our medical team below.
What Sets The Ulthera Device Apart From Other Facial Rejuvenation Devices?
The Ulthera device has the ability to penetrate the skin more deeply than most devices. By getting into the deeper skin layers and underlying muscles, the Ulthera can provide a patient with a lifted effect on the face. Naturally, this makes Ultherapy a good alternative for those who do not want to treat a certain problem surgically.
Which Areas Of The Face Are Often Treatment With The Ulthera Device?
A cosmetic surgeon can use the Ulthera device to treat various areas of the face. Common areas that are treated with this device are the lower cheeks, as the treatment of this area can lead to a lifting effect for the rest of the face; this includes the patient’s jawline and the jowls.
Another common area that is treated with the Ulthera device is the forehead. The treatment can reduce visible fine lines and wrinkles, but it also creates an overall lifting effect for the brows.
Who Will Execute My Ultherapy At The Dr Lanzer Clinic?
That depends on if you have Ultherapy alone or if you plan on combining it with other treatments. If you only have treatment with the Ulthera device, your treatment can be executed by one of our trained therapists at our centre. However, if you intend on having this procedure in addition to another facial rejuvenation treatment, you may require a consultation with Dr Lanzer first.
There are certain facial treatments that cannot be combined with Ultherapy. For example, if you had any facial fillers, you will not be able to take advantage of Ultherapy. If you are considering facial fillers in the future, it is essential to have your Ultherapy beforehand.
Will I Experience Pain During Ultherapy?
Every patient is different where pain or discomfort is concerned; this applies to all treatments provided in clinics, hospitals, or beauty centres. However, the comfort of our patients is always important to our clinic, so our aim is to keep patients as comfortable as possible during this treatment.
Some patients will have Ultherapy under a light local anaesthetic. However, this is not the case for everyone. Some patients do not feel anything at all during the treatment, so it is commonly a personal choice.

Does Ultherapy Have A Good Success Rate?
While the Ultherapy is a relatively popular non-surgical procedure with a decent success rate, we can never guarantee the results obtained from this procedure. Every patient is different, so the results obtained for a treatment can be different too. That being said, most patients who come to our clinic for Ultherapy get their desired results.
What Are The Benefits Of Ultherapy At The Dr Lanzer Clinic?
Treatment with the Ulthera device has its own range of benefits. One of the most important benefits is that most patients only require one treatment with this device, as the production of collagen continues for several months after the treatment. So, while you will get some results as soon as you leave the clinic, the results will continue over the following months.
Another benefit of Ultherapy is that the procedure can be performed while the patient is awake. While some patients may require a local anaesthetic, the treatment is usually not executed under a general anaesthetic; this speeds up the recovery time for patients and reduces some of the risks involved.
Patients also like Ultherapy because of the natural results produced by this treatment. Some patients are not that confident in surgical procedures, as they fear it will leave them with a “startled” look. As no incisions are made during Ultherapy, the patient will receive a natural result.
Can I Return To Work On The Same Day?
Most patients who have Ultherapy are able to return to their normal activities right away. Of course, some patients prefer to rest for the remainder of the day, but it is certainly not an obligation. No special measures need to be taken after the treatment, but we always recommend that patients listen to their own body post-treatment.
