Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. This treatment is also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can Ultherapy® replace a facelift?
Ultherapy® treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a 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.
What is unique about Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.
How does Ultherapy® differ from laser treatments?
The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer, which is typically addressed in cosmetic surgery, but it does this without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy® bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver ultrasound energy at precise depths and optimal temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, stimulating new collagen production.
How long does an Ultherapy® treatment take?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
When will I see results?
Results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as 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 not ready for surgery and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How long will results last?
Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depend on the patient. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
