Ultherapy uses time-tested ultrasound energy to tighten the skin naturally- without surgery or downtime
The Non-invasive Lift
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 decolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher look from your brow to your chest!
Focused Ultrasound. No Surgery.
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound, of course, has been used throughout the medical field for more than 50 years-and Ultherapy has been established as effective in clinical studies and in over a million treatments worldwide.
Builds New Collagen
The Ultherapy procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin's foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
No Toxins or Needles
Unlike lasers, radiofrequency, 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.
No Downtime. Natural Results.
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.
Just a Single Treatment
Just one non-invasive Ultherapy treatment helps counteract the effects of gravity and sun exposure without downtime
Before Your Treatment
The first thing you will want to do is schedule a one-on-one consultation with an Ultrerapy provider. During this session. your practitioner will address your concerns, assess your skin and determine if you are a candidate for the treatment.
Once you book your Ultherapy procedure, you won't need to follow any special preparations or skincare regimens in advance of the treatment.
To enhance your comfort, your practitioner may recommend that you take an over-the-counter or prescribed medication before the treatment.
During Your Treatment
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, your Ultherapy practitioner will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. Next, your provider will use Ultherapy's ultrasound imaging to first see deep 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 levies can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
The length of your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
After Your Treatment
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.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of gravity on your skin. Ultherapy uses the body's own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow. under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the decolletage.
What is unique about Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. Ultherapy is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.
With the addition of the new Ultherapy Decolletage Treatment, Ultherapy is also now the only non-invasive procedure specifically indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?
Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won't duplicate the results of a facelift. Urtherapy is a great alternative, however, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How does Ultherapy differ from laser treatments?
Ultherapy uses sound energy-tried-and-true ultrasound - which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin's foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.
Laser rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatment typically only treats superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.
Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they're actually very compatible.
How does Ultherapy stimulate the creation of collagen?
Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultherapy doesn't involve any creams, fillers, or toxins; it just relies on your body's own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
How long does an Ultherapy treatment take?
The length of the 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.
Will I need to take time off?
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
What does the Ultherapy treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered
When will I see results? How long do they last?
After your Ultherapy Treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy, and the individual's collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body's natural aging process.
Are there any side effects?
The 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 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.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Of course, the best way to find out if you're an Ultherapy candidate is to consult with a practitioner. You can easily connect with a nearby provider using our
