Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. It can also improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy® harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy® has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in over half a million treatments worldwide.
The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Ultherapy® bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2 − 3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy® won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
