How is that possible? If it “sounds” too good to be true…it’s probably Ultherapy®.

Simply put, Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten skin. If you’re ever had a prenatal ultrasound, you’re already familiar with the basic concept.  But sound waves don’t just project images from the inside out: they can also penetrate deep into skin layers from the outside in to activate the body’s natural rejuvenation process. In this case, we’re talking about the actual growth of new collagen! Another plus: Ultherapy is especially effective on the eyebrow area, neck and under the chin, spots that are traditionally hard to treat.

Here’s how it works. During a 60-90 minute Ultherapy session, a special instrument is used to focus ultrasound energy on designated facial areas. The ultrasound actually bypasses the skin’s surface to reach the deep, structural tissue below. In turn, the body responds to the burst of focused ultrasound by stimulating the growth of new collagen. rejuvenation process is gradual: it takes about 2-3 months to see Ultherapy’s full effects. But during that time frame, you’ll look a bit younger each day!
