Ultherapy uses safe,
time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest.
Collagen is a protein that is found in the dermis. It is responsible for the overall structure of the skin, providing support and cushioning. As people age, normal production of collagen in the body gradually declines, which explains why the epidermis begins to change in appearance as people age.
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.
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, your practitioner will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. Next, Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging assesses depth within the skin to determine optimal placement of the treatment energy, and then deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface.
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
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 a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
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.
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime.
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, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
