Introducing Ulthera, the latest FDA approved ultrasound-based medical device to achieve nonsurgical skin tightening and face and neck lifting with no down time. Ultherapy may be the most exciting breakthrough in anti-aging cosmetic procedures in recent years.

As the skin matures, collagen fibers that provide internal support become worn. Ultherapy’s ultrasound energy reaches deep below the surface of your skin to initiate your body’s own natural repair process. Over time, this results in the creation of new, healthy, strong collagen and a variety of positive skin changes. Older technology utilizing radiofrequency such as seen in Thermage may not penetrate tissue as effectively as Ulthera and the resultant skin tightening may not be as impressive. Because the rejuvenation process occurs naturally, results occur gradually. Just as strengthening muscles or growing taller takes time and is not evident from day to day, the effects of Ultherapy build slowly and subtly. In this world of immediate feedback, we want to reassure you that patience is a virtue, and that results can take two to three months to unfold. See following video animation showing how energy is delivered at 4.5 mm and 3 mm deep, and initiates the tissue repair cascade:

Responsiveness varies from patient to patient, and, occasionally, the results are “subclinical”; that is, the collagen rebuilding on the inside that helps counter the effects of gravity does not have a visible effect on the outside. Nearly half of our patients can feel the skin tightening of the face and neck right after the Ultherapy treatment and their immediate clinical progress can be confirmed with photographic documentation. Some patients may benefit from more than one treatment.

What you can expect...
In the early days following treatment, patients commonly report some lifting, a firmer skin feel and, as an added bonus, a smoothing out of fine lines. While this immediate “plumping effect” can be temporary, it signals that the beneficial process of new collagen generation has begun.

Additional skin firming, toning and actual lifting is reported to occur over the next 2-3 months after the treatment (and sometimes longer). This can take the form of:

• elevation of the brow, leading to an opening up of the eye area, reduced hooding of the eyelids, softening of the wrinkles around the eyes, and a more “rested” appearance in general

• a shifting of the cheek tissue upward for an overall ovaling effect of the lower 2/3 of face

• an improvement in the folds and lines around the nose and mouth
reduced sagging under the chin

• Reduced pore size and a more even skin color

Natural. Non-Invasive. No Downtime.

The FDA-cleared Ultherapy procedure has been established to be safe and effective in clinical studies and over 100,000 patient treatments worldwide. In addition, every Ultherapy practitioner is provided with procedural training and tools, so you can schedule your Ultherapy treatment with complete confidence.

An Ultherapy procedure typically takes around 60 minutes, but will depend on the area to be treated and the treatment plan determined by your practitioner. There are no special after-care requirements and you can resume your normal activities immediately.

Before your procedure 

No preparation whatsoever is required before your Ultherapy procedure, although your practitioner may recommend that comfort measures such as over-the-counter or prescribed medication be taken prior to treatment.

During your procedure 

After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, an ultrasound gel is applied and the smooth handpiece is placed upon your skin. The focused ultrasound energy bypasses the surface of your skin and is delivered to pre-planned depths within the tissue below to stimulate collagen growth.

Comfort levels vary from patient to patient and can depend on the area treated as well. Your practitioner will discuss options for making the experience as pleasant as possible. The sensation you experience is associated with the focused ultrasound energy as it is deposited below the surface of the skin. It is noticeable just while the energy is being delivered and patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.

After your procedure 

You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take. Your skin may appear flushed immediately after the ultrasound treatment, but any redness should disappear within a few hours. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days, or tingling/tenderness to the touch for a few weeks following the procedure, but these are mild and temporary in nature. There is the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, such as temporary small areas of bruising or numbness, and other rare effects which your physician will review with you.
