Ultherapy Procedure

A Nonsurgical Way to Lift, Tighten, and Tone Skin.


We are proud to offer the acclaimed, innovative non-surgical lifting procedure Ultherapy.

Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for the face, that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone and tighten loose skin

Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound, a tried and true technology used for decades, to stimulate collagen deep within the skin without downtime. The result is tighter, better-fitting skin, even on the neck.

Ultherapy was recently featured on national TV shows such as Entertainment Tonight, Rachael Ray, The Doctors, 20/20 and The View, plus touted by well-known beauty editors from Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire and other magazines.

Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to see the layers of tissue we target during treatment and ensure that the energy is delivered precisely to where it will be most productive.

One of the first effects of gravity is that the brows descend, and the eyes start to appear smaller. Ultherapy will lift the brow, which in turn reduces the excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes and gives a more refreshed appearance.

The 60-minute in-office procedure stimulates the production of new, stronger collagen. The result is tighter, better-fitting skin.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is an innovative non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face, that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone and tighten loose skin. It is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.

How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures?

Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes only about an hour for most patients, and there is no downtime. It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective. Patients like that the process is natural and that the effect is gradual.

Does it hurt?

While comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, most patients now report that the procedure is quite tolerable. If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This sensation is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible and patients tell us they leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.

How long does it last?

Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.

Are there any side effects?

There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. The ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.

Is Ultherapy safe?

The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 100,000 treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.

Can men have it done?

Yes! Both women and men are receiving Ultherapy.
