Ultherapy

Ultherapy® is a revolutionary application of focused ultrasound technology to produce skin tightening and lifting.
This break through treatment allows physicians to focus sound waves deep under the skin to heat, lift and tighten loose skin without needles, surgery or any damage to the skin's surface. In just a single treatment session, the Ultherapy® device take images of the deep inner layers of the skin and a wand like treatment hand piece delivers heat to areas requiring treatment. This FDA cleared technology is being used primarily on the face to lift sagging brows, reduce excess skin on the lids and open up the eyes thus wiping away years for a younger, rejuvenated look.
The beauty of Ultherapy®, the ‘uplifting ultrasound’, is that within one treatment it triggers the body’s own regenerative process of building new collagen to lift and tighten the skin — gradually, naturally, and from the inside out.

ULTHERAPY FAQ'S

How does the Ultherapy® procedure work?
A smooth applicator, similar to a wand, is placed on your skin; it is then used to deliver low levels of ultrasound-focused energy (heat) just beneath the skin. This is accomplished while leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed. Your skin's response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. In result, gradual tightening and firming occurs, leaving patients with a natural lift of the skin over time. 

Does it hurt?
Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, but there can be some temporary discomfort while the energy is being delivered. We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible, including administering pre-procedural pain and anti-anxiety medication.
How long does it last?
Patients treated with Ultherapy® will enjoy fresh new collagen and tightening affects up to two years following the procedure, but skin will continue to age.

Are there any side effects?
After your treatment it’s not uncommon to have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch for a few weeks, and mild redness following the procedure, but these are typically mild and they are temporary in nature. There can be other post-procedural effects such as bruising and small areas of numbness but these are less common and, again, temporary.
How is Ultherapy® different from other cosmetic procedures?
Ultherapy® is the only nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound technology to specifically target the same layer of facial tissue that doctors address in surgery. The use of ultrasound technology also enables us to actually see the layers of skin we are treating, allowing the energy to be delivered precisely to where it will be most productive.

How many treatments does it take?
The majority of patients only need one treatment, while those with a fair amount of laxity may need more than one treatment. Annual touch-up treatments can help to slow down the rate of skin aging.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy®?
There is a broad range of people who can benefit from Ultherapy®, but typically those in their thirties and older are prime candidates. While this is not a replacement for surgery, there are many people who want some lifting and tightening, in order to look more refreshed and toned but are not ready for the commitment of face-lift surgery. Younger patients who want to retain their youthful look before significant aging occurs are also excellent candidates for the procedure.

What does collagen do?
Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed and toned. As we age, collagen loses its strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity, pulling the skin downward. Ultherapy® jumpstarts a repair process that strengthens your existing collagen and produces fresh, new collagen.

Can men have it done?
Both women and men globally are receiving Ultherapy®.
