Your Questions Answered about Ultherapy—The Newest Innovation in Skin Tightening Technology

What is the Ulthera Non-Surgical Facelift?

Completely innovative, Ultherapy® is the latest in non-surgical skin tightening technology. Used on the face and neck, Ultherapy® utilizes ultrasound waves to tone, tighten, and lift sagging skin that often ages us beyond our years. The treatment takes 30 minutes to an hour and requires little to no recovery time. Ulthera® is often referred to as the non-surgical facelift.

How does Ultherapy® work?

As we grow older the production of collagen in the deeper layer of our skin slows down, leaving us with thinner skin and areas of sagging and drooping under the chin and on the face. Ulthera® works using ultrasound energy to penetrate the skin, heating the deeper layers of tissue below the skin’s surface. The process stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. This method of treatment leaves the surface layers of the skin intact, decreasing recovery time compared to ablative laser procedures, and improves the skin from the inside out.

How is Ultherapy® different from other cosmetic skin tightening procedures?

Both non-surgical and non-invasive in nature, Ulthera® is the only skin tightening system to utilize ultrasound technology which allows the provider to “see” into the deep tissue responsible the appearance of aging and to target the tissues previously only accessible to Dr. Burstein with neck lift, facelift, and other cosmetic surgery procedures.
