Lift and Tighten- without surgery!

Do you want to lift and tighten the skin, but don’t want the risk and downtime associated with surgery…..Ultherapy may be your answer! Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared procedure to non-invasively lift the eyebrow, neck and under-chin.

Now, FDA-cleared to improve décolletage(chest) lines and wrinkles!

How does Ultherapy work? It 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 more than 350,000 treatments worldwide.

Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial. –

 How long does it take? Ultherapy is typically done in about 1.5hrs in office. While there is no downtime associated with the procedure, in order to make our patients more comfortable, we can administer injectable lidocaine before treatment (this does have the potential to bruise, which could last up to a week).

Results? The results are not immediate, but do take a full three months to see optimal results. Clinically we have found that our patients even look better a year from the procedure, since it is a collagen-building device that builds the collagen over time.

We love that this procedure has no risks with sun exposure, making it the perfect procedure really for any time of the year, but especially summer since some of our other treatments are no no’s. Ultherapy is also an amazing procedure to give you that refreshed and youthful appearance when you really aren’t at the point of surgery, or just don’t want to put yourself through an optional risky procedure.
