What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a revolutionary skin tightening device that works by using ultrasound waves to penetrate the deep tissue below the skin. This deep tissue is responsible for generating collagen and elastin, substances that are necessary to keep skin taut and elastic. Deep tissue also gives the skin its underlying shape, so by targeting this deep tissue Ultherapy can provide results comparable to a surgical face or neck lift in certain candidates.
Ultherapy is popular for use in conjunction with dermal fillers and Botox in order to achieve a more complete facelift look, although it is not a substitute for a surgical facelift. It is also especially popular for brow lifts. Lifting the brow can create a more youthful expression, and it is a safe and effective means of achieving that expression. Recently this skin tightening device has been approved to reduce the appearance of aging lines and sun damage in décolletage or chest and neck. Results will vary depending on the individual.

What is a procedure like?
Ultherapy is usually a quick and effective treatment. How long an Ultherapy session lasts depends on the individual patient and how many areas are to be treated, but generally patients can be in and out of the office in less than an hour. Ultherapy is a popular “lunchtime facelift” option because of Ultherapy treatment has no downtime for most people.
During an Ultherapy procedure, patients will feel a heating sensation in the areas being treated. Depending on one’s tolerance to discomfort, medications to help one relax and reduce discomfort may be offered. Directly after a procedure, there may be some redness or swelling, but this should dissipate very quickly.
