A Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Procedure
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure naturally, but effectively, lifts and tightens the skin on the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. With over a million treatments worldwide, the Ultherapy treatment relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows us to see the layers of tissue we are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
BUILDS NEW COLLAGEN: The Ultherapy® treatment stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
NO TOXINS OR NEEDLES: Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
Why Do Patients Love Ultherapy?
- Ultrasound technology – no scalpels or needles
- Gradual, natural results
- No downtime
- Builds collagen 2,3
What Can I Expect During a Ultherapy Treatment?
First, we will conduct an initial consultation to understand your concerns, assess your skin and determine if you are a candidate for the treatment. After cleansing the skin, we will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. Next, we will use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to see deep within the skin to determine optimal placement of the treatment energy, and then deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, only while the energy is being delivered. Face, neck and brow procedures typically take 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
What Type of Results Can I Expect?
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months* as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
