Ultherapy is an incredible, non-invasive procedure designed to lift and tighten aging skin – achieving a youthful and healthy overall appearance. In addition, this treatment also improves the look of fine lines and deep wrinkles, making it an excellent option for individuals who want to achieve a rejuvenated and youthful appearance, without the risks and downtime associated with invasive surgery.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy sends high-frequency sound waves to stimulate cells deep beneath the skin’s surface layers, promoting collagen production and tightening the underlying muscles. Over time, this results in skin that is healthy, vibrant and lifted.

Frequently Asked Questions
What to Expect During the Ultherapy Procedure?
During your Ultherapy procedure, we will begin by applying a lubricating gel to your skin, before passing the ultrasound wand over the areas where your skin and muscles could use a lift. You can expect your entire 20 to 40 minute procedure to be virtually pain-free, with most clients only reporting very minimal and short-lasting discomfort.However, if you have a low threshold for pain, you may be advised to take over-the-counter pain medication prior to your treatment to ensure your comfort. Because Ultherapy is completely non-invasive, there is virtually no downtime associated with the procedure and you will be able to resume your normal activities immediately.
Does Ultherapy Treatment Hurt?
Most patients do not report pain during the Ultherapy procedure, but comfort level varies by individual. Some patient’s experience mild discomfort when the ultrasound energy is being delivered, stimulating new collagen. Any pain or discomfort is temporary. There is typically no pain post-treatment.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Many patients are satisfied with the skin tightening results achieved with a single Ultherapy treatment. Some patients may desire additional treatments to address advanced skin laxity or sagging skin. The new collagen stimulated by Ultherapy usually lasts for 12 months, so most patients opt for annual touch ups to maintain the dramatic skin tightening.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The longevity of your results will vary depending on how much collagen your body produces, as well as your age, diet and congenital factors. However, the vast majority of our clients still see noticeable results two years after their initial procedure and continue to undergo follow-up treatments to maintain their new, youthful appearance.
How is Ultherapy Different From Other Skin Tightening Treatments?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting skin on the chin, brow, and neck. It is also the only FDA cleared non-invasive treatment for improving wrinkles and fine lines of the décolletage, or lower neck line area.*Unlike other skin tightening treatments that use radio frequency, lasers, or surgical incisions, Ultherapy uses ultrasonic energy to bypass the skin’s surface, to heat deep tissue layers of the skin for optimal collagen production.¹Because Ultherapy targets deep skin layers, it is unlike laser skin tightening which usually focuses on more superficial layers of the skin in order to treat wrinkles, fine lines, uneven pigmentation, etc. Because these two skin tightening treatments target different skin layers, they can be used in conjunction with one another for the ultimate in anti-aging skin care.*
When Will I Begin To See Results?
Many patients see skin tightening results after their first treatment, but the majority of skin tightening and skin lifting effects develop gradually over the period of 2 to 3 months. Some patients continue to see improvement in skin laxity for 6 months following an Ultherapy treatment.
