Ultherapy® uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. The FDA-cleared device used in the procedure utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin. Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen lives.
The skin’s response to this energy is to recondition tired skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lifting—or shifting—of the skin back into a more youthful position and form-fitting shape. An Ultherapy procedure typically takes between 30 and 60 minutes but will depend on the treatment plan determined by your physician. There are no special after-care requirements and you can resume your normal activities immediately.
