Ultherapy enables direct sound waves not only into the skin, but deeper under the skin to the same tissue layers addressed in surgery. This gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting into or disrupting the surface of the skin. In addition to the visible effects of lifting and tightening, there is also an invisible result from Ultherapy with the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness. 

Ultherapy lifts, tightens, and tones loose skin to counteract the effects of time and gravity. One of the first effects of gravity is that the brows descend, and the eyes start to appear smaller. Ultherapy can lift the brow, which in turn reduces the excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes and gives a more refreshed appearance. 

The beauty of Ultherapy is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body's own natural healing response to gently, gradually — and reliably — restore elasticity to the skin and its underlying tissue. Ultherapy requires no special preparation or recuperation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take 3 to 6 months, as the old, broken down collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, healthier, stronger collagen.
