Are you looking for a way to achieve tighter, more toned skin on your face and neck but not interested in the downtime and recovery period of a surgical facelift? We now offer the nationally acclaimed non-surgical lifting procedure, Ultherapy!
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment for the lifting of the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin, and is completely natural and non-invasive, with no recovery downtime.

What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures?
Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes only about an hour for most patients, and there is no downtime.
It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
Does it hurt?
A recent software upgrade called “Ultherapy Amplify” now affords a more comfortable procedure. While comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, most patients now report that the procedure is quite tolerable. If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This sensation is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible, and patients tell us they leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.
How long does it last?
Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Is Ultherapy safe?
The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 100,000 treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
How many treatments does it take?
The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process.
