If you are unhappy with sagging skin and wrinkles on your face and neck, Ultherapy can help. It’s a nonsurgical treatment that encourages your body to produce more structural proteins. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less of these proteins, which keep the skin tight and smooth. The result is sagginess, puffiness, and wrinkles. After an Ultherapy treatment, your skin will become significantly tighter, which will reduce the number of wrinkles, minimize excess hanging skin, and give better definition to your chin and neck. There’s no downtime and virtually no risks, other than minor discomfort during the procedure.

What Ultherapy Can Do for You
Ultherapy is a very flexible treatment that can be used virtually anywhere there is sagging skin, excess skin, or folds and wrinkles. It has been FDA-cleared for use on certain locations, such as:
However, there are many areas where Ultherapy is used as an off-label treatment to tighten skin and improve appearance. Which Ultherapy treatment areas are appropriate for you can only be determined with a consultation.
Benefits of Ultherapy
Ultherapy has grown rapidly in popularity because it offers many benefits:
- Fast—just 30-90 minutes for a treatment
- Easy—only one visit is necessary to get quality results
- Convenient—there’s no downtime, so you don’t have to take time off your busy schedule
- Effective—you will see noticeable results
- Long-lasting—results last for 1-2 years
- Safe—there’s no risk of infection
- Subtle—because the surface of the skin isn’t affected, there’s usually no way anyone can tell you’ve had it done
- Natural—uses your body’s own healing mechanisms
The gradual way in which results develop can help if you don’t want people to know you’ve had Ultherapy. The results come in subtly, and people will likely think you’ve lost weight or been working out.
How Ultherapy Works
When we are young, our skin contains high levels of collagen and elastin. These proteins help the skin support itself and maintain its smoothness despite repeated folding. As we age, the body tends to produce fewer of these proteins and this, along with other mechanisms, leads to sagging skin, facial folds, and wrinkled skin.
The body has the mechanisms to produce more collagen and other structural proteins, but it doesn’t produce them. To stimulate your body to produce them, Ultherapy focuses ultrasonic waves—waves of sound that are outside the range of human hearing—into your body. These waves pass harmlessly through your skin until they reach their focal point, a deeper layer of skin where cells produce new skin. At the focal point, the sound waves create a minor injury that stimulates your body to make more of the structural proteins that can lead to tighter, smoother skin.
Over the next 3-6 months, your body heals from the minor injury, producing more collagen and other vital skin proteins, and the result is tighter, smoother skin.
A Perfect Complement
Ultherapy is a treatment that leads to improvement over large areas of the face. This makes it a great complement to more targeted treatments, like BOTOX ® Cosmetic or Juvéderm that can be used to make dramatic improvements in more targeted problem areas.
And although a facial or skin care can’t get the same results we can achieve with Ultherapy, they can certainly help increase the longevity of results.
