ULTHERAPY: A Revolution In Non-Surgical Face Lifts
Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive rejuvenation procedure for the face, neck and chest, that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.

Ultherapy bypasses superficial skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at controlled depths, at the right temperature, and basically delivers little pockets of energy into the skin. It doesn’t require injections like other skin lifting treatments do such as Dermal Fillers and Botox.
Ultherapy’s ultrasound energy activates the skin regenerative process, through tissue contraction, and new collagen production. Over the next few months, gradual tightening occurs, resulting in lifting of the face and tightening of the skin – naturally.
Another unique point of Ultherapy is that it also uses ultrasound imaging that enable sight of the layers of skin tissue being treated. It is the only cosmetic procedure which uses real-time imaging during treatment. As a result, it is always known where in the skin, it is being treated to ensure the energy is safely delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
As soon as the treatment is administered, the regeneration process begins with some lifting being observed immediately after the initial treatment. On a whole though, it takes time to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production and so the full effects of the treatment will take about 3-6 months.
