As we age, it’s normal to start noticing some new things in the mirror. If you’re bothered by lax skin around your eyes or mid-face, drooping of the brow, the beginning of jowling along the jaw, or sagging skin on the neck and chest, you’ll want to read on!

Ultherapy® is an excellent, non-invasive option for giving your face, jawline, and neck a noticeable lift while delaying early signs of aging and the need for more invasive procedures.

  • Non-Invasive Skin Tightening: Ultherapy provides a non-surgical alternative to traditional facelifts, tightening and lifting the skin without the need for incisions or anesthesia.
  • Stimulates Collagen Production: The ultrasound energy used in Ultherapy stimulates the deeper layers of the skin to produce new collagen, a key protein that maintains skin firmness and elasticity.
  • Natural-Looking Results: The gradual improvement in skin tightness and tone following Ultherapy appears natural, as it relies on the body’s own regenerative processes.
  • No Downtime Required: One of the significant advantages of Ultherapy is that it requires no recovery time, allowing patients to resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
  • Improves Skin Texture: Over time, the increase in collagen production can lead to an overall improvement in skin texture and smoothness.
  • Long-Lasting Effects: The effects of Ultherapy can last for a year or more, with patients often experiencing continued improvement over several months.
  • Targeted Treatment: Ultherapy treatments can be customized to target specific areas of concern, such as the brow, neck, chin, and chest, with precision.
  • FDA-Approved: Ultherapy is an FDA-approved procedure, ensuring it has undergone rigorous testing for safety and efficacy.
  • Reduces Appearance of Wrinkles: Ultherapy can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly on the neck and chest area, as well as the lower face.
  • Suitable for Various Skin Types: Ultherapy is effective for a wide range of skin types and ages, making it a versatile option for many individuals seeking skin rejuvenation.
  • Collagen: A protein in the skin that provides structure and firmness. Ultherapy stimulates collagen production, leading to tighter, more youthful skin.
  • Elastin: A protein that allows the skin to return to its original position when poked or pinched. Ultherapy can help improve skin elasticity.
  • Focused Ultrasound Energy: The type of energy used in Ultherapy, which targets deeper layers of skin to stimulate collagen production without harming the surface layer.
  • Non-Invasive: Referring to a treatment that does not require surgical incisions or internal scopes. Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure.
  • Real-Time Imaging: A feature of Ultherapy that allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue being treated, ensuring the energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
  • Skin Laxity: The loss of skin tightness or firmness. Ultherapy is used to improve skin laxity, particularly on the face, neck, and chest.
  • Transducer: The Ultherapy device handpiece that delivers focused ultrasound energy to the skin.
  • Ultrasound: A form of energy that uses sound waves. In Ultherapy, ultrasound energy is used to heat tissue and stimulate collagen production.
  • Ultherapy: A non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin.
  • Ulthera System: The specific device used to perform Ultherapy treatments, combining ultrasound imaging with focused ultrasound energy delivery.

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy uses the power of ultrasound energy to naturally stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in your body, effectively giving the skin a tighter, more lifted and youthful look. Ultrasound energy has been used safely for many years in the medical industry, and it has proven to be a fantastic method of providing non-invasive skin tightening without puncturing or otherwise damaging the skin.

When we pass the Ultherapy device over areas of loose or sagging skin, it delivers focused ultrasound energy to the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate natural collagen production without harming surrounding tissues. When these tissues are heated, they will slightly contract on contact and activate your body’s natural healing response, leading to gradual, noticeable improvement.

Is Ultherapy safe?

Ultrasound energy has been used medically for over 50 years and has a proven track record of safety. Ultherapy was designed to bypass the surface of your skin and deliver an exact amount of energy at the right temperature to the right depth where it can provide optimal results—and, unlike lasers or other technologies, it doesn’t need to break the skin.

Because there are no needle pricks, incisions, or accompanying medications, Ultherapy has very few associated risks. The most common side effects patients will experience are a bit of redness and some swelling or tenderness for a day or two after treatment.

To further ensure your safety, we continually monitor your skin via the applicator throughout the entire treatment.

Does Ultherapy hurt?

Most of our patients report that they feel a warming sensation during treatment, though there is no pain. You may feel some tenderness after treatment, but this is typically short-lived and fairly mild.

During treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream before the device is passed over your skin to ensure your comfort. If you are still concerned or have a low pain tolerance, don’t worry! Our physicians and physician assistant are happy to work with you and discuss your options for medication to reduce discomfort or anxiety prior to treatment.

When will I see results after Ultherapy?

Many of our patients notice a slight improvement right away—that’s because the initial contraction of these deep tissues during treatment will help improve the tightness and texture of the skin.

These improvements will continue over the course of a few months. You skin will continue to firm up and look more lifted as collagen and elastin is rebuilt in the treated areas. Your results can continue to improve for up to a year, providing you with a subtle, natural-looking uplift.

How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?

Most patients need just one treatment to see great results, though you may benefit from additional treatments depending on how much laxity you are experiencing and your individual response to the first treatment.

Ultherapy results can last for many years, but nothing can truly stop time—and your body will still age. Maintenance treatments may be recommended when you start noticing that your skin is again showing signs of laxity.
