There are many non-invasive, anti-aging procedures available today in order to help men and women age gracefully. Ultherapy® is one of the newer non-invasive treatments that helps to tighten skin and stimulate collagen production through the use of ultrasound. Although this treatment has been approved since 2006, many people are still unfamiliar with the incredible advantages that ultrasound provides.

How Does Ultherapy® Work?
By using ultrasound, it takes advantage of the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrows, under the chin, and on the neck, and also smooth lines and wrinkles on the decolletage area.
Why Is It Unique?
Because it is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift the skin. By using ultrasound, the medical professional can actually see the layers of tissue targeted, ensuring the energy will be deposited where it will do the most good.
How Is The Creation Of Collagen Stimulated?
By focusing ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature, neocollagenesis, a natural process that produces fresh, new collagen, is jump-started.
How Long Does A Treatment Take?
Generally speaking, you can expect treatment to last between 30 and 90 minutes depending on your treatment plan and the area being addressed. As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will be able to feel the tiny amounts of energy being deposited and know the collagen-building process has begun.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Most patients require only one Ultherapy® session. However, some people may benefit from more. This will depend on the laxity of the skin and the own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process.
