Question: Is ultherapy used on the face and the body? What areas are most often treated?
Answer: Ultherapy is FDA approved for use on the face but many people, including the Quintessa Aesthetic Center, have used Ultherapy off the face and have had some very exciting improvements in areas like the decollete or the upper chest region. We have also treated some upper arms and legs and it is even being used in the underarms for excessive sweating. Essentially, the device can theoretically be used on virtually any part of the body where we want to lay down energy under the skin without injuring the overlying skin itself. Most commonly though we are performing facial treatments in 95% or more of our patients and only a small number of patients are getting off face treatments.
