Non-Surgical Skin Tightening, Skin Lift
Ultherapy – Beautiful, lasting, non-surgical alternatives to tighten your skin and give you confidence.
Ultherapy combines ultrasound imaging with ultrasound heat to actually lift lax skin without disrupting the surface of the skin. That’s right, a lift without surgery. What is so amazing is that for the first time Ultherapy allows the physician to visualize the layers of soft tissue below the skin without cutting so the energy can be delivered to the correct depth for maximal results. Ultherapy it is cleared by the FDA for the face and neck and has a specific indication for brow lifting.
The sound waves from the Ultherapy device are concentrated at a focal point where it contracts the tissue and initiates a collagen rebuilding process. The results can be immediate but the full effect takes up to 90 days while tired collagen is replaced with new, stronger collagen. You can think of Ultherapy as a process that “jump starts” your skin’s ability to produce fresh new collagen.

Ultherapy uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher look from your brow to your chest!
There may be some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary, tolerable and a signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Perceptions of comfort vary from patient to patient and we take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible [customize based on practice’s comfort management protocol (e.g. premedication, cooling fans)]. Patients leave comfortable and happy given the results in store.
Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time, but skin continues to age. Yearly touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process.
Ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in medical imaging for over 50 years. In addition, the procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 50,000 treatments have been performed worldwide without any significant adverse events.
The most common side effects reported in clinical trials were redness, swelling, pain and transient nerve effects. There may be slight redness for up to an hour following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
