Ultherapy uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime.
The Non-invasive Lift
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to actually 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! It also helps the wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. It 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.
Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?
It treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a facelift. It 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?
Ultrasound has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to trat 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.
Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so typically treat only superficial skin. Since they often treat different types of skin issues, they’re actually very compatible.
How long does an Ultherapy treatment take?
The length of time will depend on the area(s) 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. 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.
When will I see results? How long do they last?
After your 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. Your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
How many treatments will I need?
Many patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and your 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.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Example include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest, eyes or lips.
