The success and popularity of Ultherapy® have resulted in several knockoff treatments that are
putting unsuspecting patients at risk with their unverified promises. These counterfeits are
untested, potentially unsafe devices that might do more harm than good.
With many counterfeit treatments, energy is delivered at inconsistent levels and depths, which put
patients at risk. Ultrasound energy delivered too intensely and too close to the surface of the skin
can results in burns to the treated area. Conversely, energy delivered sporadically or at too low a
level (or not at all) may result in a less-than-desirable outcome – or no result at all.
In contrast, Ultherapy® delivers just the precise amount of energy at exactly the right depth for a safe and effective treatment.
