What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a safe and nonsurgical skin tightening treatment. This procedure lifts the skin on the: brow, chin, neck, and chest and is used on the arms, and knees. Ultrasound technology heats tissue and muscles under the skin’s surface which stimulates the production of collagen.
What happens during the skin tightening treatment?
The area being treated is divided into sections with a marker, this ensures the right amount of ultrasound energy is being delivered to each part.
A hand piece is placed on the area to deliver the exact level of energy. Each section is treated by a specific number of ultrasound pulses, which create a healing response under the skin without affecting surrounding tissue. Thus, tightening and lifting the skin treated.
Why is this nonsurgical treatment to lift and tighten skin so popular?
As clinicians, we are able to see and track the exact amount of energy needed to target a specific area. This is based on depth of the skin, fat and muscle in the region.
When people begin to see the first signs of aging, Ultherapy and injectables like Botox and fillers are hands down the most effective tools.

How long does it take to see results?
The final results will take place over 2-3 months as the body naturally regenerates collagen. The treatment stimulates natural collagen production so the results vary depending on each person’s skin and their healing response. The treatment produces new collagen beneath the skin, but the natural aging process determines how long results are visible for.
