Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, chin and brow,
and improves lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to non-invasively lift and tighten skin. Ultrasound is a form of mechanical energy that is significantly different than Light (Lasers) and Electrical (Radio-Frequency) energy. During Ultherapy, ultrasound it is micro-focused below the skin’s surface to cause cellular friction and precise, pin-point heating. Similar to a magnifying glass focusing sunlight, heat is only generated at the focal point, leaving the skin’s surface and intervening tissue unaffected. Tissue at the focal point is heated to ~65°C, causing immediate collagen contraction and denaturation, and initiating aggressive collagen synthesis. Over 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue remodelling and leads to further lifting and tightening, with results that can last a year or more.
