As collagen production slows and sun damage further increases collagen breakdown, the results start to show as loose skin that may cause the need for a surgical facelift. For those looking for alternatives to surgery, Ulthera, today’s strongest and most focused treatment for skin lifting and firming is the answer. Highly targeted ultrasound waves break down hydrogen bonds that cause the loss of “plump”, firmness or laxity of the skin by creating fibroblasts responsible for creating new collagen.

Ulthera is unique to other therapies such as Radio Frequency devices that simply provide “bulk heating” because Ulthera offers surgical precision as treatment is rendered to exact points where you need firming.

This FDA cleared (2009 for Non-Invasive Brow Lifting, 2012 for Non-Invasive Neck & Chin Lift, 2014 Improvement of Lines & Wrinkles on the Chest) treatment works by focusing ultrasound waves to precise, well-defined areas in dermal and subcutaneous tissue causing Thermal Coagulation Points (TCPs) resulting in molecular friction and heat which ultimately shrinks tissue for lifting and firming. Ulthera may be used to treat loose skin on the face, neck, chest, breasts, abdomen, knees, elbows, and essentially anywhere else that needs tissue “shrinkage” or reduction/lift.

Ulthera is able to treat at 1.5mm 3.0mm, and 4.5mm, distances not reached with other devices, which ultimately target dramatic skin lifting. Ulthera also treats at more severe temperatures which will result in more tissue denaturing and remodeling.

Questions & Answers

How does Ulthera work?

With Ultherapy, our nurses scan treatment areas to then direct targeted ultrasound waves in three different penetration depths to target fine lines, wrinkles and to target skin lifting. Ultherapy gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Our Ulthera specialists also use ultrasound technology in its more traditional sense, to see underneath the skin and ensure the treatment is administered where it will yield the best results.

Who is great candidate for Ulthera?

While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, mentally, physically or financially.
Ultherapy is recommended for those whose skin is starting to show some degree of laxity or “looseness”. Loose skin under the chin or neck, droopy eyelids and loose skin signal a potential great candidate for treatment. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are ideal candidates.
Ulthera is also great for those who are younger and want to stay ahead of the game as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

When will I see results from Ulthera?

The visible effects of Ultherapy—lifting and toning—take place over a period of 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. Ultherapy will keep building-up collagen for up to 6 months following the procedure.
Is There Downtime from Ulthera?
No, there is no downtime with Ulthera and you can resume normal activities immediately after a session. There is no recovery time & no scarring.

What should I expect during my Ulthera treatment?

On your first visit with us, an Ulthera specialist will evaluate your specific needs and answer any questions you have. Your treatment will then be performed by a registered nurse, which may be scheduled in advance or possibly same day. We will discuss what treatment plan is best to acheive your desired results.
During the procedure, your nurse will use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to view deep within the skin to determine the best depths to administer treatment, and then deliver the ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface. Your nurse will work to ensure your comfort during the procedure. When your treatment has finished, you are able to return to normal activities immediately after. You are not required to stay out of the sun, and there is no post treatment care you will need to conduct.

Does Ulthera hurt?

Comfort levels during the procedure vary from person to person. Typically patients will take either Tylenol or Ibuprofen 45 minutes prior to treatment and use local numbing cream. Any mild discomfort or sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.

How long does Ulthera take?

The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and patient’s individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes.

How do I get the best results from Ulthera?

In brief, do not use ant-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen post treatment as these will inhibit the factors that stimulate new collagen production.

How does Ulthera compare to radio frequency or infrared treatment such as Thermage, Titan, Pelleve , LuxIR Deep or other similar treatments?

Ulthera is the only treatment on the market works on a multitude of depths within the tissue layers to treat any type of skin thickness/thinness. Ulthera is highly controlled, FDA cleared and requires no downtime. Radio-frequency is limited to delivering efficacious heating to depths of approximately 1.5-4.5mm,the maximum heat at the skin’s surface are 65°C~70°C, which are limited to prevent adverse effects.
Ulthera is able to treat at 4.5mm, 3.0mm and 1.5mm, distances not reached with other devices, which ultimately target dramatic skin lifting. Ulthera also treats at more severe temperatures which will result in more tissue denaturing and remodeling.

Who should NOT get Ulthera?

*Any area of cystic acne breakouts.
*Any area of open wounds.
*Anyone who has had injectable fillers within the last 3 months.
*Anyone who has had Botox/Dysport in areas of desired treatment within last 2 weeks.
*Anyone looking to treat over an active implant such as a pacemaker.
*Men should be clean shaven prior to treatment.
