Ultherapy®: the non-surgical alternative to facelift

If you’ve ever wished for a more youthful complexion but remain unsure that surgery is the right option for you, Ultherapy may be the answer. Indeed, NewBeauty has named Ultherapy as the best nonsurgical skin tightener for the 7th year in a row!

The only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure lifts the eyebrow, neck, and under-chin areas — as well as improves décolletage lines and wrinkles — Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate new collagen production deep within your skin by harnessing your body’s own regenerative responses. Targeting areas of the body that are the most susceptible to signs of aging, Ultherapy provides a natural lift from the inside out.

Because treatment does not include toxins, lasers, or needles, Ultherapy is a safe and convenient option to help patients achieve a more youthful look, with no downtime or restrictions after treatment. You can get back to enjoying life as soon as you leave the office.

Lashelle Kuhlman, licensed aesthetician, Eileen Maney, PA-C, and Mallory Miller, PA-C, are certified in the treatment. Kuhlman states “Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, it’s a clinically proven alternative and can also be a great option for patients who wish to further extend the effects of a prior cosmetic surgery.”

The process itself takes between 60 and 90 minutes and requires no anesthesia. Patients who are interested in the Ultherapy procedure will be asked to come into the office for a consultation, which includes an in-depth discussion of potential risks and costs. “Once we map out a plan,” says Kuhlman, “we will schedule a time for you to come back for the procedure.”

Results of Ultherapy develop three to six months after the procedure. Because of this gradual change, patients are encouraged to come back into the office months after their procedure to compare before-and-after photos. Whatever your needs may be, the results are the same: tighter, younger-looking skin.
