It is considered as face-lift without surgery. It is the only FDA approved device to tighten the neck skin.

What is Ultherapy and how long is the procedure? Ultherapy uses ultrasound to tighten the skin. It is great for people who are not ready for a face lift and want a face lift without surgery effect. The treatment typically takes around 60 minutes or longer, depending on the area to be treated and the treatment plan determined. There are no special after-care requirements and you can resume your normal activities immediately.
Before Your Procedure
No preparation whatsoever is required before your Ultherapy procedure, although your practitioner may recommend that comfort measures such as over-the-counter or prescribed medication be taken prior to treatment.
During Your Procedure
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, an ultrasound gel is applied and the smooth hand piece is placed over the skin. The focused ultrasound energy bypasses the surface of the skin and is delivered to pre-planned depths within the tissue below the skin to stimulate collagen growth. Therefore after the procedure the skin surface is completely intact.
Comfort levels vary from patient to patient and can depend on the area treated as well. We at Sand Cosmetic Institute will make the experience as pleasant as possible for you. The sensation you experience is associated with the focused ultrasound energy when it is delivered just below underneath of the skin. This sensation is only noticeable, while the energy is being delivered and patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.
After Your Procedure
You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take. Your skin appears flushed immediately after the ultrasound treatment, but any redness should disappear within a few hours. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days, or tingling and tenderness to the touch for a few weeks following the procedure, but these are mild and temporary in nature. There is the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, such as temporary small areas of bruising or numbness.
How are the Results?
Natural and noticeable. With Ultherapy, there is no downtime, no foreign substances, and no radical change. You can go about your day after a single, 60-90 minute in-office procedure; it is a facelift without surgery. You may notice a short-term “boost” in your skin tone immediately after the procedure, but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time. If you want to tighten the neck skin this procedure is for you.
The Beauty of Ultherapy
The more permanent results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months. Some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months, including lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jaw line, and on the brow. While Utherapy does not duplicate the results of surgery, it has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.
How it works
Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen lives. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy actually works from the inside out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively.
