Ultherapy – Uplifting Ultrasound

If you’re looking for a non-invasive treatment option for a facelift, then we have some some good news.

We are very proud to offer Ultherapy, which stimulates collagen deep in your skin – without the same downtime as surgical facelifts.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow. This face lifting treatment uses targeted ultrasound in order to stimulate collagen so your skin is actually becoming youthful on its own with the stimulation from Ultherapy.

Does Ultherapy work?

Yes. Although the best results from Ultherapy are seen over time and repeated sessions, the results are better and appear more natural because it is natural.

How long does Ultherapy last? 

The treatment typically takes around 30-minutes. Afterward, patients are able to return to normal activities right away, and there are no special measures they need to take.

Does Ultherapy hurt?

In general, Ultherapy treatments do not cause much pain or discomfort. Prior to the treatment, your provider will apply a topical numbing cream that will help with any discomfort felt during your treatment. In addition, your provider may also offer you an over-the-counter pain medicine, such as ibuprofen, if you’re typically sensitive to pain.

If you’re uncomfortable with the level of pain during or after the treatment, you can always talk to your provider to discuss options.

What to expect after Ultherapy treatment

Immediately following your treatment, you can go about your day as normal. Your face may appear flushed and even mildly swollen and tender in treated areas, but these effects are temporary.

With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months, as new, stronger collagen and elastin are created. Most patients see optimal results from an Ultherapy treatment three months following the procedure.
