Ultherapy® is a non-surgical skin treatment that can lift and tighten the tissues in the face and neck using ultrasound energy. This advanced non-invasive treatment targets the same deep layers of tissue that are adjusted during a facelift or neck lift, such as sagging skin on the cheeks and neck.
Patients may choose this procedure to correct early signs of aging or to postpone the need for surgery.
How Ultherapy® Works
The ultrasound energy heats the tissue and stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that provides the skin with strength and elasticity.
The Ultherapy® procedure takes just 30 to 60 minutes to perform in the doctor’s office, and it involves no downtime. There are minimal side effects and gradual, natural-looking results. The intended result is a tighter, more youthful appearance.
