Ultherapy is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment for skin laxity. It uses microfocused ultrasound energy to target the deeper layers of the skin and stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin. The treatment is particularly effective for treating skin laxity in areas such as the neck, chin, brow, and décolletage. It can also be used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck.
MICROFOCUSED ULTRASOUND FACELIFT WITH VISUALIZATION
The microfocused ultrasound facelift with visualization (MFU-V) is one of the most advanced non-invasive treatments on the market. MFU-V allows visualization of the areas to be treated (1.5, 3, and 4.5 mm) according to individual skin thickness. The depth of the targeted areas varies based on the thickness of the skin and the patient’s weight. This personalized approach ensures ultrasound energy is delivered precisely where needed, stimulating elastin and collagen generation for the best results. MFU-V is a safe and effective treatment that can be combined with injections of diluted Radiesse®, which also stimulates collagen and elastin production.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
HOW TO LIFT AND FIRM THE SKIN WITHOUT SURGERY?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive aesthetic treatment that harness the power of microfocused ultrasound technology with visualization (MFU-V), which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the deep layers of your skin.
The energy delivered passes through the surface of the skin without damaging it. Micro focused ultrasounds can reach a depth of 4.5 mm (much more than lasers and radiofrequency) which will smooth the skin and lift it; this is the same depth that is aimed at during a surgical facelift.
Patients may see some immediate results after their Ultherapy treatment, but the full results usually take a few months to appear. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated by the ultrasound energy, which gradually lifts and tightens the skin. It can take anywhere from 2-6 months to see the full effects of the treatment, as the collagen continues to build and lift over time. The results can last for up to 1 year or more, depending on the patient’s skin condition and how well they take care of their skin after the treatment.

HOW TO KNOW IF THE ULTHERAPY TREATMENT EFFECTIVE FOR YOU?
If you are considering Ultherapy treatment, it is recommended that you schedule a consultation with one of our experienced Aesthetic Doctors. During the consultation, the Doctor will assess your skin and discuss your aesthetic goals to determine if Ultherapy is the right treatment for you.
Generally, Ultherapy is ideal for individuals who are experiencing early signs of aging, such as mild to moderate skin laxity or wrinkles. It is also effective for improving the appearance of sagging skin on the face, neck, and chest. However, if you have more advanced signs of aging, such as severe sagging or deep wrinkles, other treatments may be more appropriate.
It is important to have realistic expectations about the results of Ultherapy and to understand that multiple treatments may be needed to achieve your desired outcome.
