Ultherapy® uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery, helping you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest! The safety and efficacy of Ultherapy have been established through clinical studies and over 1 million treatments performed worldwide. Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow, as well as to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolleté.
Ultherapy uses precise ultrasound energy to target the deep structural layers of the skin without disrupting the skin’s surface. After treatment, the body’s tissue repair process stimulates the production of new collagen, creating a natural lifting effect.
- Single Treatment. No downtime. During the treatment, ultrasound energy will be delivered using the Ulthera® System. Depending on where you are treated, the procedure can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Some patients see an immediate result, but you should expect to see results appear over 2-3 months or even up to 6 months post-treatment.
- Combined Ultrasound Imaging and Therapy. During the Ultherapy treatment, the practitioner uses ultrasound imaging to identify the optimal layers of tissue for collagen regeneration. This ensures the ultrasound energy is delivered to where it will be the most beneficial, resulting in targeted collagen growth where it matters most.
How it Works
Ultherapy® deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen to counteract the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy relies on your body's own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results. The Ultherapy procedure delivers focused ultrasound energy at precise depths and temperatures to initiate neocollagenesis, but without disrupting the surface of the skin. This energy jump-starts the collagen building process to replace old, aging collagen with fresh, new collagen.
Am I A Candidate?
Growing older is a privilege, but the aging process may leave you longing for your younger skin. A good Ultherapy® candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to look less firm or tight. Examples include a lowered brow, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy results in a gradual, natural looking lift, leaving patients looking refreshed. However, Ultherapy will not have as drastic results as a surgical facelift. Ultherapy is a great alternative, however, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
