Ultherapy®
NON-INVASIVE LIFTING AND SKIN TIGHTENING.

How to lift and tighten skin without surgery? Ultherapy®, that’s how.

Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. Through the ultrasound imaging with Ultherapy, energy is delivered precisely to the place where it will benefit you most—for natural-looking results that improve over time.

Ultrasound, not Surgery

Ultherapy® OVERVIEW

Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to go deeper than other non-invasive treatments for collagen stimulation. And it leverages traditional ultrasound imaging so our Ultherapy specialist can see the layers of tissue they are treating. This ensures the treatment energy is delivered to where it benefits you most.

FDA-cleared for Lifting

Only Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to non-invasively lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow—and also improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage!

A Non-invasive Procedure

For those who are not ready for a surgical facelift, Ultherapy provides proven results in a single treatment for most patients. Learn how to treat your loose skin without surgery, without impacting the surface of your skin, and without downtime.

THE SCIENCE OF AESTHETICS HAS EVOLVED TO ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound visualization—employed during planning and energy application—makes Ultherapy® treatment uniquely precise and customizable.

Ultherapy treats tissue at the same depth as a modern facelift

Ultherapy treatment begins with visualization, offering practitioners unprecedented insight into dermal and subdermal tissues during all phases of treatment. When combined with energy targeting at depths previously only available via surgery, and at optimal temperature, Ultherapy achieves a level of precision, consistency, and customizability befitting the Gold Standard in non-invasive skin laxity treatment.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound with visualization to non-invasively treat the same deep tissue planes as a modern facelift. Similar to a magnifying glass focusing sunlight, ultrasound energy precisely targets dermal and subdermal tissues. Heat is generated only at the treatment site; intervening tissues and the skin’s surface are unaffected. Target tissue is heated to approximately 65°C, triggering immediate collagen denaturation and collagen synthesis. As part of body’s wound healing response, long-term collagen remodeling delivers a gradual, natural-looking lift. Results can last a year or more.

A COLLAGEN COMEBACK

As a natural protein, collagen works to give skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity.That’s where Ultherapy steps in and lifts up, through ultrasound therapy.

NO SURGERY HERE

Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery, and other technologies, nonsurgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin through ultrasound energy with focused imaging—to target just the right amount at the right depths and the right temperature. The result is a jumpstart to your body’s own collagen production.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow, and improving lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.

Is Ultherapy safe?

Ultherapy is a proven treatment with a well-established safety profile. It is currently marketed worldwide in more than 75 countries, with over 1.5 million treatments performed globally to date. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.

What does collagen do? How does Ultherapy stimulate the creation of collagen?

Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to generate a thermal effect under the skin. The thermal effect essentially jump-starts your body’s own process that produces fresh, new collagen.

How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures?

Ultherapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses time-tested ultrasound technology to stimulate the formation of new collagen deep below the skin’s surface. The production of new collagen takes time, so results can become more apparent over two to three months, even up to six months. The procedure takes about 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the area treated, and there is no downtime afterward. It is also the only non-invasive procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to actually see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most beneficial.

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 two to three months. Some lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers. Typically, laser treatments also only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.

How long does it last?

Since the procedure stimulates a person’s own collagen production, how long the results last depends on the individual. While results appear over two to three months, they can last up to a year or more. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but the individual’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Future touch-up treatments can help provide more control over the aging process, which varies by individual.

What does the Ultherapy treatment feel like?

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, stimulating the collagen-building process. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.

Are there any side effects?

There may be slight redness that typically resolves within a few hours following the treatment. Some patients may have slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

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 post-treatment measures.

How many treatments does it take?

The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment, depending on how much skin laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process. Follow-up Ultherapy treatments each year may help maintain results.

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?

A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin, or lines and wrinkles on the chest, are signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.2,3 While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many people who want some facial lifting but are not ready for surgery, whether mentally, physically, or financially. There also are younger people who want to "stay ahead of the game," as well as patients wanting an aesthetic maintenance option.
