Ultherapy® is the only nonsurgical procedure U.S. FDA cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the brow, and to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolleté.1
It also has received the CE Mark for lifting and sculpting of the skin of the upper face, lower face, neck and décolleté. Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest!1 Both men and women can experience these Ultherapy benefits:
- No downtime
- Builds collagen
- Natural results
- Safe ultrasound
Ultherapy® delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery — without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
This energy initiates the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment. The real results appear naturally and gradually over 2–3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting and tightening the skin.
Unlike lasers, radiofrequency and other technologies, Lift Your Neck Ultherapy® bypasses the surface of the skin to precisely deliver energy at optimal depths and temperature.
Also unique to Ultherapy is the use of ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring energy is delivered safely and to where it will be most beneficial.
While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s an exciting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery.
Prevention always beats a cure, which is why hyaluronic acid and glycerol help to limit wrinkle formation, hydrate the skin and redefine your skin structure, for a younger, more radiant look.
It does all this without drastic volume changes, but with a natural flair that keeps you selfie-ready at every instant!
As a beauty booster, BELOTERO® Revive can be injected over multiple treatments, giving you a youthful radiance from the inside out.
SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN TO STIMULATE COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
Data from a unique Ultherapy® study* in which live patients had an Ultherapy treatment on one side of the face and not the other has shown a quantitative increase in the rate of collagen production resulting from the Ultherapy treatment. Scientific analysis of the skin tissue showed the Ultherapy treatment increased the rate of collagen production an average of 1.4- fold.5 Specifically for collagen Types I and III — the types most often associated with aging — the rate of collagen production on the Ultherapy-treated side was increased by 42% compared to the untreated side.
The study quantifiably confirms for patients that the Ultherapy treatment not only shows results on the outside; it also makes a difference where it counts most — deep within the skin.

What is unique about Ultherapy®?
It is the only non-invasive aesthetic treatment that is: – U.S. FDA-cleared to lift skin tissue – U.S. FDA-cleared specifically to treat the décolleté – U.S. FDA-cleared to use ultrasound imaging to visualize tissue while treating
How long does a treatment take?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure takes 60–90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Will I need to take time off?
After an Ultherapy procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
When will I see results? How long will they last?
You may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will appear naturally and gradually over 2–3 months, as tired collagen is replaced by the growth of new collagen. As skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the natural aging process. For many patients, it’s comforting to know that Ultherapy is scientifically proven to increase collagen production in skin.
What does the treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. Your practitioner will take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible, and most patients leave comfortable and excited about the results to come.
Is Ultherapy safe?
The FDA-cleared Ultherapy procedure has been used safely in over 1 million treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years.14 In addition, every Ultherapy practitioner receives extensive procedural training and tools, so you can feel confident in choosing Ultherapy.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience some r edness for a few hours following the procedure. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days, or tingling/tenderness to the touch for a few weeks after the procedure, but these are mild and temporary in nature. There is the possibility of other, less common postprocedural effects, such as temporary areas of bruising or numbness, which your physician will review with you.
