Ultherapy is the only non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the face, brow, neck, and under the chin. Ultherapy is a skin tightening option for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity. Typical patients want some lifting for skin that has lost elasticity but are not ready for surgery either mentally, logistically, or financially. Ultherapy is also a great option for those who want to “stay ahead” of the aging process, as well as those looking to prolong the effects of a surgical procedure or facial injectables.

The Ultherapy Procedure
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas. Ultherapy uses the safe energy of ultrasound to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin growth in the deep structural support layers of the skin — including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift — without disturbing the surface of the skin.
During treatment, the skin is cleaned and ultrasound gel is applied to the treatment area. The Ultherapy handpiece is placed on the skin, delivering low-level focused heat as it moves over the target area. Patients may experience mild discomfort as the heat is delivered beneath the skin. Treatment takes approximately 60 to 90 minutes to treat the entire face and neck, while a partial face or brow treatment usually takes around 30 minutes.
Many people notice an immediate effect following Ultherapy treatment, but the ultimate lifting and toning take place over a 2-3 month period. Results last over 2 years.
