Ultherapy Skin Tightening
Beverly Hills Skin Tightening
One of the unfortunate side effects of aging is that our skin begins to produce less collagen with each passing year. Collagen is responsible for maintaining our skin’s tone, texture and hydration and its youthful appearance. This naturally-occurring compound provides our skin with the underlying structures which lead to its outwardly attractive appearance. With less collagen available, inevitably, fine lines, folds, wrinkles, and sagging skin result and will continue to increase over time.
However, the natural decline in collagen in the skin can be improved in many ways, and one of the most effective techniques to reverse this decline is Ultherapy®, a quick, non-invasive and effective collagen-enhancement treatment. These benefits make Ultherapy® a must-consider option for those who have mild to moderate aging symptoms and who wish to delay or avoid more invasive procedures such as a facelift, brow lift or neck lift. For the right candidate, an Ultherapy® treatment can relieve skin laxity, sagging skin, and other unwanted aging symptoms with long-lasting results.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a treatment that can tighten and lift the skin in a non-invasive and low-risk procedure, using ultrasound. This ultrasound technology can transform the appearance of the skin around the eyebrows, on the neck and under the chin. Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive skin-lifting procedure. It has also recently been approved to treat aging symptoms such as lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Ultherapy® applies and targets highly-controlled ultrasound energy to areas where patients are currently experiencing skin laxity. This ultrasound energy gently raises the temperature of the underlying layers of the skin and re-initiates your body’s natural collagen production. Over time, increased collagen levels in the skin will begin to restore the patient’s natural skin tone and elasticity and improve fine lines, folds, wrinkles, and loose skin.
Patients can also preview the results of their treatment before their procedure online. Visitors to this website may securely upload photos of their concern areas, and the Ultherapy® application will create photos that closely approximate the results patients can expect. Not only does this tool help patients determine if Ultherapy® is right for them, but also it helps them see the results of treating one or multiple areas.

What does Ultherapy® treat?
Ultherapy® treats mild to moderate skin laxity, including lines, folds, wrinkles and drooping or sagging skin. This non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment lifts and tightens the skin in the following key areas:
- the entire facial area
- the upper facial area
- the area around the eyebrows
- the full area of the neck
- the décolletage
What benefits does an Ultherapy® treatment have?
If you want to improve mild to moderate aging symptoms, such as lines, folds, wrinkles and loose and sagging skin, but you wish to avoid an invasive procedure, consider Ultherapy®. Ultherapy® can be an ideal solution for individuals who want to improve their aging symptoms but prefer a non-invasive procedure. An Ultherapy® treatment offers all of the following benefits:
- very natural-looking results
- mild discomfort from the procedure, if any
- a single session to achieve optimal results
- little or no side effects
- little or no downtime with no recovery results
- results without surgery or other invasive procedures
- Ultherapy® combines well with other treatments for further results
Ultherapy® offers many advantages that other skin treatments cannot. Ultherapy® is exceptionally safe, since it relies on ultrasound energy. Ultrasound has seen numerous medical applications over more than 50 years — it is commonly used safely in prenatal care — and is very well studied and understood. Clinical studies of more than 350,000 patients worldwide have confirmed ultrasound’s safety in medical contexts.
In addition to safety, Ultherapy® allows your provider to see the areas of the lower dermis which will require treatment, making an Ultherapy® treatment substantially more effective than its alternatives. Patients can expect to receive the appropriate amounts of ultrasound energy in the appropriate areas — not less or more — ensuring that they receive optimal results.
Further, since Ultherapy® can reach the underlying layers of skin and heat them sufficiently, patients experience results that are also qualitatively better than results offer by other treatments, such as lasers, which only penetrate the upper layers of the skin. Results of an Ultherapy® treatment will be very long-lasting since it encourages collagen production in the deepest layers of the skin, producing better-quality results that will outlast treatments that only improve the skin’s upper layers.
What can I expect during my Ultherapy® appointment?
An Ultherapy® treatment requires very little time but can still produce maximum results. Before your treatment, your provider will cleanse the area to be treated to ensure no superficial debris will interfere with the Ultherapy® application. Next, your provider will apply a gel to the treatment area which facilitates the passing of the Ultherapy® wand over the skin to be treated.
Using this applicator, your provider will then examine the concern areas to identify where treatment should be given to maximize the effectiveness of your treatment. Once the treatment locations have been established, your provider will deliver the appropriate amounts of ultrasound energy to the deeper layers of skin in these areas.
Patients will immediately experience the tightening effects after having Ultherapy®, as the treatment stimulates collagen production and firms and tones the skin. Since a typical Ultherapy® lasts approximately 60 minutes, an Ultherapy® patient can easily have their single treatment over their lunch hour, making it one of the most convenient rejuvenating treatment available.
How long before I see my Ultherapy® results?*
Patients will see results from their Ultherapy® treatment quickly, with some patients seeing immediate improvement. For most, however, the skin lifting and tightening effects produced by Ultherapy® will gradually appear over the weeks following their treatment — with the majority of results presenting between two and three months. During this time, collagen in the skin will continue to increase and improve the skin. Since each individual’s response to an Ultherapy® will vary, so will the length of time before results begin to appear. Results from Ultherapy® are long-lasting, but factors such as your age, your overall health and your exposure to the sun can all affect precisely how long your results will last.
