Ultherapy is a non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery for lifting loose, sagging skin around the neck, chest, chin, and brow area. The procedure is FDA approved and uses ultrasound technology to tighten skin and ease fine lines and wrinkles, without cuts or scarring.

Ultherapy Lifts and Tightens – Without Cuts or Surgery
The treatment works by using targeted ultrasound energy to penetrate deep below the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production. The body naturally produces collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycan (GAGs), all of which contribute to firm, hydrated, youthful skin. As we age, collagen and elastin production naturally begin to slow down, resulting in loss of firmness, sagging skin, and fine lines and wrinkles. Cosmetic treatments like facelifts are designed to help improve collagen production in order to slow down the signs of aging. Ultherapy can be used as an alternative to a facelift for patients who wish to avoid cosmetic surgery for less invasive treatment. Ultherapy can also be used to help enhance the effects of a facelift after surgery.
Is Ultherapy Right for You?
Ultherapy is an ideal treatment option for adults looking to improve the appearance of aging skin around the neck, brow and décolletage (chest), which can be a particularly difficult area to reverse the signs of aging. Because Ultherapy is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment, there is no required down time after the procedure, allowing you to return to work and daily activities right after treatment, with no bandages, scarring or bruising. Although results typically begin to appear within a few weeks, some Ultherapy patients have reported noticeable results shortly after their first treatment.
