Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure for the lifting and tightening of skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. With an impressive safety record, Ultherapy treatment has been FDA-cleared. If you are looking to tighten or lift your skin in a non-surgical manner, contact one of our Scottsdale surgeons at 480-696-6361 for more information on what Ultherapy can do for you.

Ultrasound Imaging

The biggest way that Ultherapy differentiates itself from other skin tightening procedures is with the use of ultrasound imaging. When choosing another energy-based method for tightening, the device will typically heat the subcutaneous tissues which is the deepest layer of the skin, and the surrounding area. This can cause adverse side effects and may also be cause for downtime after the procedure is done.

With Ultherapy, ultrasound imaging is used to show all the different layers of tissue, allowing the Dr. to deliver the energy to a deeper underlying layer of skin and precisely to the target area. Depositing the energy to the precise target area makes the procedure much more effective. Patients will continue to see the results become more apparent over the course of three to six months, as the production of collagen will continue to occur over time. In addition, patients will not experience any downtime.
