Surgical vs. Non-Surgical

Avoid the downtime, cost & risk.

Ultherapy® is the use of ultrasound to stimulate the supporting layers beneath the skin in order to encourage a healing process that leads to skin tightening on the surface. It does not affect the surface of the skin directly, but indirectly through the body’s natural ability to heal. Ultrasound technology has been used safely for many years in the medical community for everything from diagnosis to fetal monitoring, and now it can be used to tone loose skin.

This revolutionary procedure is quick, mild, and a non-invasive alternative to surgery. The effects of ultherapy® can be observed for months after the session, as the skin is busy repairing and building new collagen throughout the “healing” process.

The procedure itself is incredibly simple. If you’ve ever had an ultrasound before, it operates in much the same way. A handheld wand is used over the surface of the skin to detect the state of the layers underneath. Once your practitioner decides where to apply the treatment based on the ultrasound images, the same handheld device is used to apply ultrasound bursts that create a reaction in the deeper layers of the skin. This encourages tightening and lifting through the growth of the skin’s natural elastin and collagen.

Over the next several weeks, you should see a noticeable change in your skin. For some time after the Ultherapy® procedure,  you may have some tenderness or redness, but this should be mild and go away quickly. There’s no lengthy recovery process required.
