Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin without downtime. The result? Tighter, better-fitting healthy skin, even on the neck! Natural. Non-invasive. No downtime. Check out the Before & After photos below.

Ultherapy® is the use of ultrasound to stimulate the supporting layers beneath the skin in order to encourage a healing process that leads to skin tightening on the surface. It does not affect the surface of the skin directly, but indirectly through the body’s natural ability to heal. Ultrasound technology has been used safely for many years in the medical community for everything from diagnosis to fetal monitoring, and now it can be used to tone loose skin.

UltherapyThis revolutionary procedure is quick, mild, and a non-invasive alternative to surgery. The effects of ultherapy® can be observed for months after the session, as the skin is busy repairing and building new collagen throughout the “healing” process. It can take 2-3 months to see the full effect, and some patients have witnessed the effects continuing until the 6-month mark.

The procedure itself is incredibly simple. If you’ve ever had an ultrasound before, it operates in much the same way. A handheld wand is used over the surface of the skin to detect the state of the layers underneath. Once your practitioner decides where to apply the treatment based on the ultrasound images, the same handheld device is used to apply completely safe ultrasound bursts that create a reaction in the deeper layers of the skin. This encourages tightening and lifting through the growth of the skin’s natural elastin and collagen. 

Over the next several weeks, you should see a noticeable change in your skin. For some time after the ultherapy® procedure, which should only take 1-2 hours, you may have some tenderness or redness, but this should be mild and go away quickly. There’s no lengthy recovery process required.
