What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. This is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and brows.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature.
This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the process that produces fresh, new collagen.
Some of our clients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2-3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well smooth skin on the chest.
While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those who are not ready for surgery.
What to Expect
Before your treatment:
One of the first things we would recommend is coming in for a complimentary consultation to discuss your concerns. Our Staff will address your concerns, asses your skin, and determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
After booking your Ultherapy treatment, you won’t need any pre-preparations to or any skincare regimens to move forward in the treatment.
During your treatment:
After cleaning and identifying the areas you would like to treat, our Nurse Sajia will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. After that, our nurse will use the Ultherapy ultrasound imaging to first see deep within the skin to determine the energy of the treatment, which will then deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface.
Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes about 60-90 minutes.
After Your Treatment:
There is no downtime! 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.
Less common side-effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which our staff will review with you.
