Ultherapy is a non-invasive, ultrasound therapy treatment that triggers collagen production in order to achieve a lifted, firm contour. Ultherapy stimulates the underlying structural layers of the skin, ultimately resulting in a firmer, younger, and more rejuvenated appearance as the body uses the collagen to rebuild the structure and resilience of the skin over a period of months.

Dr. Courtney offers this cutting-edge technology to help his patients achieve non-surgical facial skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.

Who is a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?

Patients who prefer a non-surgical procedure to firm and tighten the skin are good candidates for Ultherapy. Candidates should meet the following requirements:

  • Are generally healthy
  • Are experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity in the neck, jowls, and other areas
  • Retain some skin elasticity
  • Have realistic expectations for what Ultherapy can achieve
  • Have a lowering eyebrow line
  • Would like to address wrinkles or lines

What Happens During Your Ultherapy Treatment?

The unique Ultherapy device uses ultrasound to penetrate more deeply under the skin than any other non-invasive cosmetic device, which achieves a dramatic stimulation of collagen production. The result is a dramatic lifting and tightening of the tissue over a period of months. 

Anesthetic is applied before the treatment to ensure you’re comfortable. Once this has taken effect, the Ultherapy device is placed on your skin. As it delivers ultrasound energy, you will feel the sensation of the energy penetrating into your skin, which may feel odd or uncomfortable. However, it is not painful, and the procedure is short. 

Most patients only require one treatment. However, patients with more severe skin laxity may benefit from additional treatments.

FAQ

How long is treatment with Ultherapy?

Treatments take about an hour. Usually only one treatment is needed to achieve the desired results.

Is there pain?

You will feel the procedure, but there will not be intense pain. The sensation varies from patient to patient and the intensity of the senation depends on the area treated, which setting is used, and the frequency of application to each area.

How long is recovery?

No downtime is required, but there may be some slight redness. This will usually resolve within an hour. Patients can return to their usual activities and may apply makeup immediately after the procedure.

When will I see results?

Results will be apparent over several weeks as your body rebuilds the underlying structure of the skin from the inside out. Further improvements will continue over a period of months.
