Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift, tighten, and transform the brow, eye area, chin, neck and chest. Ultherapy has been established as effective in clinical studies and in over a million treatments worldwide.
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
Consultations are required for this treatment. During this session, our highly trained practitioners will determine if you are a candidate for the treatment, discuss projected results, review before and after care, and discuss pricing
