Now there is an FDA approved ultrasound treatment to counteract the effects of time and gravity on your skin – Ultherapy by Ulthera! Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face and neck that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten lax skin.
Our faces can tell many stories, and while wrinkles might say wisdom and experience, droopiness can say tired.
How does Ultherapy work?
A smooth applicator is placed upon the skin that delivers tiny deposits of micro-focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin to stimulate new collagen growth. Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm, toned, and elastic. As we age, collagen loses its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. With Ultherapy, there is no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.* You can continue your daily routine and activities after a single in-office treatment.*
Before and After Photos
What to Expect
Unlike invasive surgical procedures, you will be able to return to normal daily activities immediately.*
Mild swelling, tenderness, tingling, numbness, and bruising may occur. Some of the immediate benefits include a slight lifting and toning, along with a tighter, firmer feeling in the skin. Results will unfold gradually over the course of 3-6 months as the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time – much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).* The Ultherapy treatment is not considered a replacement for surgical procedures, but it has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.

Ultherapy vs. Thermage vs. Laser Treatments
Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound technology to identify and treat the deeper layers of skin without compromising superficial tissue. It is the only non-invasive procedure approved by the FDA for both tightening and lifting the muscles and skin of the neck, under the chin, and eyebrows. Results take some time as collagen is being generated. Ultherapy reviews report a higher satisfaction than any other technology in its category.
Thermage uses radio frequency technology to send energy through the skin to tighten the skin. Results are gradual, and it is often the preferred method to treat areas on the body like thighs, arms, buttocks, and abdomen. Read more about Thermage.
Laser treatments affect the top layer of skin causing an improvement in facial lines and wrinkles, and an immediate contraction of collagen as the damaged top layer of skin is removed. It does eventually lead to new collagen growth and some quicker results as the damaged skin is replaced. Read more about laser skin resurfacing.

“There was no down-time and the results are very natural. Nobody knows I had anything done: they just know I look better”

The duration of the procedure varies depending on the area(s) being treated and if medication is administered. Actual treatment time can range from 20-90 min.*
Most patients resume normal daily activity immediately following the procedure as there is no downtime. There are a few manageable and temporary side effects.* Redness can occur, but is usually minimal. Mild to moderate swelling is common for 2-3 days, and soreness/tenderness to the touch is expected for up to 2 weeks following the procedure.* Bruising is also possible. If medication is administered for the procedure, you may not drive until the following day, so someone else will need to drive you home from the office.
Natural tightening, lifting, and toning of the skin develops gradually over 3-6 months following the procedure.*
Results last 1-3 years for most patients. Maintenance is necessary for best and continued results.*
