UltherapyÒ is a new type of nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure for the face that uses ultrasound and the body's own natural healing process to lift, tone and tighten loose skin.
The FDA-cleared device used in the procedure utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate deep structural support layers of the skin – including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift – without disturbing the surface of the skin.
Now there's a way to stand firm in the face of gravity – on your terms. With Ultherapy, there's no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable look on the outside.
With Ultherapy, you can go about your day after a single 90 – 180 minute in-office procedure. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time – much like the effect exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).
Results will unfold over the course of the next two to three months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to six months. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery or do not have the option of surgery due too medical reasons.
