SAY YES TO A YOUTHFUL YOU! One of the most exciting and promising recent developments in medical aesthetics is Ultherapy®, a procedure in which an ultrasound device is used on the surface of the skin, releasing energy to a precisely calculated depth beneath the surface. This energy causes some of the underlying collagen to break down and be rebuilt, achieving many of the benefits of a surgical facelift in a comfortable, nonsurgical treatment with no down time. The effects of this treatment are notably long lasting, peaking in months and lasting up to several years.
How does Ultherapy® work?
The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. Because of this energy, you are using your own body’s natural healing process, helping you to achieve real, natural skin tightening.
Ultherapy gives a sensation of a prickly heat and, in some areas, can be achy. Because every person has a different tolerance, some patients may feel it is simple while others may complain of some discomfort. We have a number of different ways to make you more comfortable and we will discuss what your needs will be at your consultation.
Even though this is a noninvasive procedure, it is a form of surgery, so you may experience some bruising. We do not recommend having this procedure within 2 weeks of a major social event. Patients generally do not experience much swelling.
Results appear over 2−3 months* as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Understanding the Procedure
When you arrive, you will have topical anesthetic cream applied to the area to be treated.
The ultrasound transducer is applied to the skin surface with an ultrasound gel and the area is treated with repeated passes over the skin. We will directly visualize the structures on our monitor so we may avoid blood vessels and major structures.

“Ultherapy is a very effective skin tightening procedure that can give you a natural lift to brows, face, chin, neck, and is the only procedure approved for the décolletage. I had Ultherapy myself and was amazed at my results. After 3-6 months, I no longer found myself pulling my skin back in the mirror to look younger. (You know what I’m talking about…) I didn’t even KNOW I had “pre-jowls” until they went away! If you want a natural looking lift, this is it! Cristy, my cosmetic assistant, and I are both certified in the Ultherapy treatments. Cristy does all of my touch ups! I will make the assessment and plan for the treatment and Cristy and I will both be involved in the actual treatment!” – Dr. Woon
