What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment that may specifically target the deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery, without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. It is also the only aesthetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to actually see the deep layers of tissue treated during the procedure and ensure the energy is delivered precisely to where it will be most effective.


What does the Ultherapy treatment feel like?

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, stimulating the collagen-building process. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.


Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?

Ultherapy is an “uplift” not a “facelift.” While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those not ready for a facelift or those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.


How is Ultherapy different from lasers?

Lasers typically address issues in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes). Ultherapy addresses the deep skin layer and the foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery that may lift and lend support to the skin. Therefore, the two technologies are quite complementary!


How long does it last?

Ultherapy stimulates a person's own collagen production, so results will will vary from patient to patient. Results with appear over two to three months after the procedure, and can last up to a year or more. Ultherapy produces new collagen on the inside, but the individual’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Future touch-up treatments can help provide more control over the aging process, which varies by individual.


What is the downtime post-procedure?

With Ultherapy, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any post-treatment measures.
