What is Ultherapy?
If your skin from your chest to your brow isn't as tight as you want it to be, Xage Medical Spa can help to increase your skin's laxity with ultherapy, a nonsurgical facelift for loose facial, neck, and décolletage skin. With approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), ultherapy energy from ultrasound waves can increase the elasticity of your skin in fast, easy treatment sessions. After your session when the treated skin starts to heal, your body naturally creates more collagen to strengthen the skin. Our board-certified physician, Dr. Stuart B. Porter, is pleased to offer ultherapy to Provo, UT women and men. This treatment can be performed along with other skin rejuvenation treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing or cosmetic injectable to leave the skin of the face, neck, chin, and décolletage looking revitalized.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Ultherapy Ideal Candidates
Men and women can both benefit from ultherapy treatments. If you have noticed that the skin on your face is becoming looser with mild or moderate wrinkles (in the areas around the mouth, brow, and eyes), or developing a slight jowl droop, you might be an ideal candidate for ultherapy. If you have severe skin sagging or deeper wrinkles and lines, a facelift with surgery could be a better choice for your needs. If you’ve been approved for the procedure, then you don’t need to do anything extra before your appointment. However, you may be advised to take an over-the-counter medication before the treatment to maximize your comfort.
Our Ultherapy Technique
When you arrive for your appointment, you will be asked to lie down in our treatment room where we will prepare the skin being treated. During the treatment, a handheld device that emits ultrasound energy waves will glide across your skin. You may feel small sensations while the energy is being delivered. You should feel no pain. Depending on the number of areas of skin you're treating, your ultherapy session may take longer. Treatments on your face and neck take about 60 - 90 minutes, and chest treatments take about 30 minutes. It is normal for the treated skin to appear somewhat red and irritated. You can apply ice packs and take a nonprescription pain reliever to decrease the pain and inflammation. You may put on cosmetics after your appointment and get back to your daily activities.
What to Expect with Ultherapy®
Afterward, your skin may look and feel a little flushed, as well as tingly, swollen, or sensitive. You will be able to resume normal activities once you leave our office. You may also experience bruising or numbness, but they are not common and are temporary effects. Your skin treated with ultherapy will not show visible results right away. It does require time for the treated skin to adjust and heal after each treatment. Ultherapy results may take about two to three months to be noticeable, as your body regenerates collagen.
