Ulthera may be used to treat loose or lax skin on the face, neck, chest, breasts, abdomen, knees, elbows, and essentially anywhere that needs tissue mild “shrinkage” or reduction/lift.
Ulthera is recommended for areas where the skin starting to show some degree of laxity or “looseness”. Ulthera is also recommended for areas where collagen has broken down. Loose skin under the chin or neck, droopy eyelids and a loose jawline signal a potential great candidate for treatment. Under eye bags are also a great treatment area. While Ulthera is NOT a replacement for a surgical facelift or skin reduction, it can help those with the early signs of aging, as well, those who want a natural looking lift. Ulthera is also ideal for those looking to prolong the effects of a surgical facelift. If you are NOT ready for surgery (mentally, physically or financially) then Ulthera may be for you!

On your first visit with us, an Ulthera specialist will evaluate your specific needs and answer any questions you have. They will discuss what treatment plan is best to achieve your desired results. During the procedure, your nurse will use Ulthera ultrasound imaging to view deep within the skin to determine the best depths to administer treatment. Your nurse will scan treatment areas to then direct ultrasound waves in three different penetration depths to target fine lines, wrinkles and to target skin lifting.
