Ultherapy® is a unique, non-invasive treatment to lift, tighten, and revitalize the skin around your eyes, cheeks, neck, and your décolleté! Dr. Rosalyn George and her experienced team have established themselves as seasoned experts at providing Ultherapy® laser treatments, as they are with many other aesthetic procedures. We can’t wait to help you see beautiful, natural results!
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy®, also known as the “non-invasive lift”, is a way to tighten and lift skin of the face — usually the eyes, cheeks, neck, and décolleté — for a natural, youthful look.
Unlike lasers, Ultherapy utilizes heat from ultrasound to stimulate collagen development under the skin. The collagen is strengthened providing your skin with a return to a more youthful and lifted position. Ultherapy® isn’t a replacement for a face lift, but it’s an excellent non-surgical option to achieve noticeable results with minimal to no downtime!
History of Ultherapy®
Since its FDA approval, Ultherapy® has remained the only FDA-approved procedure to non-invasively lift the eyes, cheeks, neck, and décolleté. It’s the first device to combine high-frequency ultrasound imaging with therapeutic treatment, enabling providers to target deeper layers of skin.

How Does Ultherapy® Laser Treatment Work?
Ultherapy® delivers focused ultrasound energy to the dermal and deep layers of the skin without affecting intervening tissue like the skin’s surface. Over two to three months, weak collagen is reorganized and strengthened, while new collagen is produced, which leads to the skin tightening and lifting.
Prior to Treatment
We first assess your skin to determine if you’re a good candidate during a complimentary consultation. Before the Ultherapy® procedure, we take pictures so we can track your results over the coming months. Our cosmetic staff with years of Ultherapy experience will mark out your treatment areas, cleanse the area, and apply ultrasound gel.
We first use ultrasound imaging to target treatment areas, then deliver the energy directly beneath the skin. Ultherapy® treatments last anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the treatment area and your unique skin. Every patient feels the treatment’s pulses differently, but if you find them unpleasant, we offer medication or Pro-Nox for your comfort.
After Treatment & Results
The beauty of Ultherapy® is that there is no significant downtime or restrictions, which is why Ultherapy® has been coined the “lunchtime lift”! You may experience some mild redness immediately after the procedure that disappears within a few hours.
The full effects of Ultherapy® and the creation of new collagen takes place over two to three months, although many report faster visible outcomes. Treatment results can vary by individual while many have noted the benefits lasting 2-3 year prior to needing another session to rebuild their collagen.
