As we age, our body can begin to stop producing various proteins that keep the skin looking young. This can result in a loss of facial volume and lead in wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin in the face and neck. If you are looking for a way to reverse these signs of aging, but you don’t want to have surgery, there are other options. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that can help tighten the skin by stimulating the production of those valuable lost proteins.

What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an alternative to a traditional face and neck lift. It uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten sagging skin under the neck and on various areas of your face. This FDA-approved procedure does not require downtime, making it easy to fit into your busy schedule. It also produces natural-looking results without surgery.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound imaging to target specific layers of fat and tissue beneath the skin. It then heats the targeted layer, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. These two proteins are naturally found in the body and work to give your skin its structure and elasticity. Once this regenerative process has begun, your skin will lift and tighten in the treatment area for reduced wrinkles.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will depend on your skin laxity. Most people only need one treatment, though others may need more based on their individual needs. Some patients return for touch-up treatments to maintain their results as they continue to age.
What are the benefits of Ultherapy?
- Customized treatment
- No downtime
- Natural results
When can I expect results?
Since this treatment utilizes the body’s natural systems to lift the skin, it takes time for the effects to show. Results are often seen the week following treatment, with the best results being seen two to three months after your final session.
