Ultherapy is performed in the office and it is a non-invasive procedure that tightens the skin with no surgery, no scarring and no downtime. The Ultherapy applicator, when applied to the skin, will pin point the correct depth of treatment for maximum results. Several application passes may be needed in areas of greater laxity. There are no visible signs of treatment immediately afterward other than skin tightening. Normal activities can be resumed immediately.

With Ultherapy or Ulthera Skin Tightening, your facial skin will look and feel tighter. Results can be detected immediately, but continue to improve with time.

Who is a candidate for Ultherapy?

Everyone with loose skin of the face and neck is a potential candidate. Ultherapy, Ohio is not a substitute for a surgical facelift and cannot achieve the amount of improvement which comes with a facelift. Ultherapy is an option for individuals with loose face or neck skin who:

  • Do not want to undergo surgery
  • Are not a surgical candidate because of medical condition, age or degree of laxity
  • Want immediate improvement, but cannot afford the downtime
  • Have already had surgery, but would like some additional tightening
  • Had a previous facelift, but are not interested in undergoing a facelift revision procedure

Dr. Sullivan can help you determine if Ulthera is right for you.

Why Choose Ultherapy?

Ultherapy or Ulthera Skin Tightening was initially approved by the FDA for brow and forehead tightening; however, it was found to be equally effective when used around the eyes, along the jaw line and on the neck. Studies are currently underway to evaluate Ultherapy on the arms, legs, abdomen and breast.
