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. 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.
How it Works
Ultherapy® uses microfocused ultrasound to generate a thermal effect under the skin. This effect essentially jump-starts your body’s own process to create fresh, new collagen. 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.
The proven results of Ultherapy are clear, appearing over two to three months as new collagen works to lift skin on the neck, chin, and brow—as well as smooth skin on the upper chest. Results may improve over the following three to six months, and can last a year or more.* It won’t duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, but Ultherapy is a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery.
Pre Treatment Instructions
Schedule a one-on-one consultation with us to assess your skin, address your concerns, and determine if you are a candidate for Ultherapy.
There are no pre- or post-treatment skin care requirements associated with Ultherapy, so once you book your personalized Ultherapy procedure, you can relax!
We may recommend certain options to enhance your comfort during treatment, such as; topical numbing cream and/or ProNox.
We recommend you discontinue Aspirin, Advil or any blood thinner you are currently taking if able. This will help prevent bruising. Fish oil can also thin blood and promote bruising.
What to expect after your treatment
No Downtime. That’s right—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. We do retail Tissue Repair Gel that can aid in the recovery.
We recommend following up at 3 months and 6 months post for follow up photos.
