What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. Through the ultrasound imaging with Ultherapy, energy is delivered precisely to the place where it will benefit you most—for natural-looking results that improve over time.
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to go deeper than other non-invasive treatments for collagen stimulation. And it leverages traditional ultrasound imaging so Ultherapy providers can see the layers of tissue they are treating. This ensures the treatment energy is delivered to where it benefits you most.
Who Needs Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is for those who are not ready for a surgical facelift, Ultherapy provides proven results in a single treatment for most patients. Learn how to treat your loose skin without surgery, without impacting the surface of your skin, and without downtime.
How It Works
Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to generate a thermal effect under the skin. This effect essentially jump-starts your body’s own process to create fresh, new collagen.
A COLLAGEN COMEBACK
As a natural protein, collagen works to give skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity.2 That’s where Ultherapy steps in and lifts up, through ultrasound therapy.
NO SURGERY HERE
Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery, and other technologies, nonsurgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin through ultrasound energy with focused imaging—to target just the right amount at the right depths and the right temperature. The result is a jumpstart to your body’s own collagen production.
NATURAL-LOOKING AND NOTICEABLE
The proven results of Ultherapy are clear, appearing over two to three months as new collagen works to lift skin on the neck, chin, and brow—as well as smooth skin on the upper chest. Results may improve over the following three to six months, and can last a year or more.* It won’t duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, but Ultherapy is a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery.
*Results may vary.
What to Expect
Plan your collagen comeback without surgery
Schedule a one-on-one consultation with us so we can assess your skin, address your concerns, and determine if you are a candidate for Ultherapy.
There are no pre- or post-treatment skin care requirements associated with Ultherapy, so once you book your personalized Ultherapy procedure, you can relax!
We may recommend certain options to enhance your comfort during treatment.
A customized treatment plan that’s good as gold
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, we will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin.
To customize your treatment, we will next visualize the best location for treatment through Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging, in order to target the area(s) that will benefit you most.
During treatment, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited under the skin, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but you may experience the sensation of heat and/or tingling while the energy is being delivered.
Recognized as the Gold Standard for nonsurgical lifting and tightening by an expert panel of physicians, Ultherapy is customized, so the length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while treatment for the upper chest (or décolletage) takes approximately 30 minutes.
No downtime, only natural-looking results
That’s right—you can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, speak with us about what to expect following your Ultherapy treatment.
