If you’re starting to notice gravity’s toll on
your skin, you may be interested in learning
about Ultherapy, a nonsurgical face and neck
treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift
and tone loose skin without any downtime.
Ultherapy is the first cosmetic procedure to use
ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners
to actually see the layers of tissue targeted
during the treatment. Leveraging this tried-and-
true technology, practitioners can specifically
target the deep foundation below the skin — the
one typically addressed in cosmetic surgery —
without cutting or disrupting the surface of the
skin. Ultherapy is so unique because it “banks”
your collagen by jumpstarting a repair process.
It relies on the body’s own regenerative process
to stimulate the natural renewal of existing
collagen and creation of new collagen — yes,
new collagen. This results in an actual lift of skin
over time. Many people notice an immediate
effect following the treatment, but the ultimate
lifting and toning takes place over 2-3 months,
as tired collagen is renewed and replaced with
new, stronger collagen. The treatment takes
about 30-60 minutes and afterward, you’ll be
able to return to your everyday life without
interruptions. To find a physician near you, visit
