ULTHERAPY
Stimulate new collagen, treat jowls and tighten lax skin on the face and brows – in just one treatment without surgery

Often referred to as the latest “collagen breakthrough”, Ultherapy is FDA approved for the non-invasive lifting of the face, neck and brows. Demonstrating a proactive approach to aging, the procedure combines ultrasound imaging with ultrasound heat to initiate the collagen rebuilding process. For the first time, physicians can actually visualize and target the layers of soft tissue below the skin and stimulate the process of replacing tired collagen with fresh, new collagen – all without disturbing the surface of the skin.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?
The ideal candidate for Ultherapy has mild to moderate tissue laxity. The treatment can be performed on any skin type or color.

IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?
Yes. Ultherapy has proven to be safe and effective for the non-invasive lifting of the face, neck and brows.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT LIKE?
The advanced procedure combines ultrasound imaging with ultrasound heat to stimulate the production of new collagen. The treatment lasts approximately 30-60 minutes. Patients will feel short periods of heat sensations.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
Just one treatment is necessary to initiate the collagen rebuilding process.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
There is no downtime with Ultherapy. The treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical, with minimal or no swelling. There is a small possibility of bruising.

WHAT TYPE OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Patients can expect rapid results with continued improvements over 90-120 days, as new, stronger collagen is formed.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
The face, neck and brows are the most commonly treated areas.

HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
Recent studies show that results last over a year.
