Ultherapy® Treatment in Vancouver

        The Skin Matters clinic in Vancouver provides Ultherapy® treatments to improve the look of skin firmness and give you a youthful appearance.

        What is Ultherapy?

        This non-invasive anti-aging treatment is designed to improve the appearance of wrinkles, sagging, and skin laxity. The procedure utilizes advanced ultrasound energy technology to stimulate collagen production, resulting in lifted and tightened skin. Ultherapy is considered the gold standard in non-invasive skin tightening treatments and is approved by Health Canada.

        How Does It Work?

        The treatment begins by applying a special gel to the targeted area. The ultrasound device then moves over the areas at different depths, targeting various signs of aging. This process delivers energy beneath the skin’s surface to promote collagen production and renewal, helping the skin gradually regain a -more lifted and firm appearance.

        Which Areas Can Be Treated?

        This procedure can treat key areas of the face, such as the brow, cheeks, below the chin, and neck—common areas where signs of aging appear.

        How Much Does Ultherapy Cost?

        The cost depends on the severity of your concerns, your treatment plan, and the areas you want to address. You will learn about the cost during your consultation at Skin Matters.

        How Long Does It Take to Recover?

        Ultherapy requires no downtime, so you can return to normal activities right after leaving the Skin Matters clinic. You will see full results within a few days.

        How Long Do Results Last?

        Results can last for months to years, depending on how well you follow aftercare instructions and take care of your skin. Optimal results appear around the 3-month mark when your body produces the most collagen. Annual maintenance treatments are suggested for optimal results.

        Am I a Candidate?

        If you have mild, loose skin and want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, this treatment is a great option. Do not proceed if your skin is extremely sun-damaged or has extensive sagging; a deeper treatment may be required.

        How to Prepare

        This is a very low-maintenance treatment - you don’t have to do much prep work or aftercare! You can maintain your regular diet and exercise routine until your procedure. It is recommended that you:

        • Remove all makeup/skincare products from the treatment area.
        • Take pain-reducing medication if necessary (under the supervision of the Skin Matters doctor).
        • Plan to be driven home if necessary.

        Aftercare & Recovery

        While this procedure boasts little to no downtime, you can resume your regular activities immediately following your procedure. However, you will have to be patient to see the first results and can optimize your results by:

        • Avoiding prolonged sun exposure for the first few days.
        • Avoiding smoking for the first week.
        • Maintaining a moisturizing skincare regimen.
        • Staying hydrated.
        • Avoiding harsh exfoliants and makeup for the first few days.
