The only FDA-cleared, non-invasive, procedure to lift and tighten neck, chin, brow and improve wrinkles on the chest.
Do you notice age-related sagging of your eyebrow line, sagging skin on your neck or jaw, hooded eye lids, or wrinkles on your chest?
What is Ultherapy® ?
Ultherapy® uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. Ultherapy® achieves a fresher, more youthful look from brow to chest by delivering focused collagen-producing ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
How Ultherapy works
The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy (sound waves) to the skin’s deep foundational layer.
Ultherapy® uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy® deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen.
Ultherapy® doesn’t involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.Unlike lasers (light energy) which typically work from the outside-in and can’t reach deeper skin layers, ultrasound targets the deeper tissues with no effect to the outer dermis.
What we love about it
More than 1 million treatments have been done worldwide. And this treatment has a 95% patient satisfaction after one year1. Best results are seen after 2 to 3 months and up to 6 months so the transformation is gradual and natural-looking. The value received for the price of this procedure is amazing, especially with the UPP package.
What to expect
An initial consultation will determine your treatment. Treatment lasts between 30 to 90 minutes for spot treatments (e.g., just eyes or neck) beginning with skin cleansing, applying ultrasound gel, and the placement of a smooth applicator against the skin. Full face and neck takes approximately 3 hours with proper numbing and medication. The patient will need a driver for after the treatment. Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging determines the placement and depth. Focused ultrasound energy is applied to the skin precisiely. Comfort levels vary but sensation only lasts during the treatment.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the ultimate results appear over 2-3 months.
How many treatments?
One single treatment which lasts 30 to 90 minutes for isolated treatments and up to 3 hours for a full treatment in most cases. Results last 2-3 years and may require another treatment as aging continues.
Possible side effects
Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary.
Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. Be sure to review all the risks with your clinician.

Questions and Answers
Is the procedure painful?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
Is there any downtime?
As a non-surgical procedure, you can return to normal activities immediately after treatment; no downtime required. Full treatments may require an oral medication in which case someone will need to be present to drive the patient after the treatment.
How long has Ultherapy been available?
Ultherapy® was approved by the FDA in 2012.
How long will the results last?
The results are gradual. Best results are seen after 2 to 3 months and up to 6 months. The effect lasts up to 3 years.
Is it right for you?
A good candidate is someone who shows mild aging of the skin (not yet ready or in need of a surgical alternative.)
