While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical face-lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery – either mentally, physically or financially.
There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game”, as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery. Whether you fall into either category, Ultherapy may be right for you.
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions…
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures?
Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that works to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes only about an hour for most patients, and there is no downtime.
It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
Is Ultherapy safe?
After demonstrating safety in clinical studies and over 100,000 treatments having been performed safely worldwide, the procedure has been cleared by the FDA. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has some degree of laxity, to the point of looking and often feeling less firm. For instance, a lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.
How long does it last?
Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh, young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
How many treatments does it take?
The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process.
Does it hurt?
While comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, most patients report that the procedure is quite tolerable. If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. The sensation is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible, and patients tell us they leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin or any small pocket of fat by physically destroying fat cells.
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions…
What causes the “double chin”?
Fullness due to fat beneath the chin can impact a broad range of both male and female adults. Some possible causes are genetics, weight gain, and aging.
How does Kybella work?
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella disrupts fat cells. Once treated, those cells broken down by your body and cannot store or accumulate fat. Your healthcare provider will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session.
Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
Your healthcare provider will help you determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each treatment would be spaced a month apart from each other.
What can I expect after my treatment session?
For most patients, downtime occurred most commonly right after the treatment session. You should be able to resume your daily activities, but are likely to have swelling so keep your work commitments and social plans in mind when scheduling. Prior to your treatment, your healthcare provider may apply ice packs to the treatment area. Applying the ice pack after treatment is also recommended.
Will there be side effects?
The most common side effects include:
- Areas of firmness
