PATIENT BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS
WHY AT MONA DERMATOLOGY?
At MONA Dermatology, our medical providers, are trained in the latest Ultherapy® techniques and are the ones doing your treatment, unlike many other places.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Prior to your treatment, photos will be taken so we can compare your progress. You can take 800 mg Ibuprofen 30 minutes prior to the treatment to help with discomfort.
We will mark out the treatment area and apply ultrasound gel to your skin to help conduct the ultrasound energy. There will be some temporary discomfort as energy is being delivered, but this is a signal that collagen building and tightening is being initiated. Comfort levels vary from patient to patient, and medication is offered prior to your procedure to help decrease any discomfort you may have.
You may experience some mild tenderness, swelling and numbness in the treatment area and may last for a few days. Although uncommon, bruising may occur. Most patients return to their normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
ULTHERAPY® FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES ULTHERAPY® WORK?
Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology to safely deliver pulses of energy, in the form of low-level focused heat, to the muscle, deep and mid dermis, causing a gradual tightening of the underlying support structure of the skin.
HOW LONG WILL THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
Depending on the areas being treated, your procedure can last from 30 minutes to a couple of hours.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ULTHERAPY & SOFWAVE?
The major difference is the depth of the skin that is being treated. Both devices use ultrasound technology to boost collagen production under the skin. SofWave is a faster treatment but Ultherapy may be a better choice if you need more lifting or desire stronger results.
DOES ULTHERAPY® HURT?
There can be some temporary discomfort as energy is being delivered, but this is a signal that collagen building and tightening is being initiated. Comfort levels vary from patient to patient, and medication is offered prior to your procedure to help decrease any discomfort you may have.
IS ULTHERAPY® SAFE?
Ultherapy® is a safe and effective procedure for most people and has been performed safely in over half a million people.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
As an alternative to surgery, one of the many great benefits of the Ultherapy® procedure is no downtime. There may be very minimal swelling or slight bruising. Many patients are comfortable returning to work or other daily activities immediately after the treatment.
WHAT RESULTS SHOULD I EXPECT?
You will only need one treatment of Ultherapy® to initiate the regenerative process of tightening and collagen-building. Results are gradual, and the full effect of your treatment will build over 3 to 6 months. As you continue to age, you may want to repeat the procedure for further tightening every 2-3 years.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are gradual, and the full effect of your treatment will build over 3 to 6 months.
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST?

AM I A CANDIDATE?
If you have mild to moderate loose skin on your neck, a sagging jawline, need your brow lifted, or have lines and crepiness on your chest, you may be a good candidate for Ultherapy.
Ultherapy is a good treatment for all skin types and is not prohibited if you have had sun exposure.
