FDA approved treatment to tone, lift, and tighten loose skin*
Ultherapy is an innovative, FDA-approved, non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound energy to tone, lift, and tighten loose skin on the neck, brow, under the chin, and in the décolletage (chest) region.
To tighten the skin on these hard-to-treat areas, micro-focused Ultherapy employs the energy of ultrasound to stimulate deep structural support layers, including those usually addressed in a surgical facelift – without disturbing the surface of the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ultherapy*
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and to smooth lines and wrinkles in the décolletage region.
What is unique about Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. It is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is being deposited where it will prove most beneficial.
Can Ultherapy replace a mini facelift?
Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a mini facelift. Ultherapy is a great alternative, however, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How does Ultherapy differ from laser treatments?
Utherapy uses sound energy – tried-and-true ultrasound – which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.
Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature and laser treatments are not FDA-cleared to lift skin. However, since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they’re actually very compatible.
How does Ultherapy stimulate the creation of collagen?
Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process known as neocollagenesis to produce fresh new collagen. Ultherapy doesn’t involve any creams, fillers, or toxins. It just relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
How long does an Ultherapy treatment take?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Ultherapy does not disrupt the skin’s surface. Instead, it gently heats underlying tissue to tighten and lift the loose skin. Not only can you see the visible effects of tightening and lifting, but Ultherapy also helps the skin maintain its youthfulness because it creates new collagen. An Ultherapy treatment is performed to counteract the effects of time and gravity.
Now you can take control over gravity and time. With Ultherapy there’s no deep tissue cutting, recovery time or dramatic change; just a healthy skin rejuvenation that results in a natural, noticeable change in outside appearance.
With Ultherapy, you can come on your lunch break and go back to the office for the day. Much like exercising builds muscle mass, this natural process helps to create new collagen over time.
The rebuilding of collagen can ultimately take up to 2-3 months to be noticed and some patients reported on-going improvement for up to 6 months. Once achieved, the results may last for a couple of years, depending on the person.* The improvements include lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, jawline, brow and under the chin. If you are not ready for surgery, Ultherapy offers patients a great proven alternative.*
