Ultherapy is an innovative facial rejuvenation procedure that is designed to elevate and tighten damaged skin, restoring a refreshed and more youthful appearance.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten aging skin on the face, neck and décolletage. It works by delivering targeted energy into the structural tissues beneath the surface of your skin. This energy triggers your body’s natural regenerative response and encourages it to produce new collagen and elevate aging skin over time. In this way, Ultherapy treatments aim to create a firmer and more youthful facial appearance from the inside out.
Benefits of Ultherapy
Ultherapy is quickly becoming a highly sought after treatment among our patients simply because of the incredible benefits it offers, including:
- The ability to achieve smoother and younger-looking skin without harsh lasers or surgery
- Extremely comfortable procedure
- Minimal risks and side effects
- Virtually no recovery period
- Completely non-invasive
Is Ultherapy right for you?
Because Ultherapy is so gentle and associated with very few risks, it’s generally a terrific treatment for any patient who wants a non-invasive, non-surgical way to rejuvenate an aging facial appearance. As long as you want to address lax, sagging and wrinkled skin on the face, neck and décolletage, there’s a very good chance that Ultherapy can help you accomplish your anti-aging goals.

What to expect during your Ultherapy treatments
You can expect your Ultherapy treatments at our Palm Beach Gardens office to be quick and virtually painless. To begin, our advanced registered nurse practitioner, Kristy Levin, will apply a special lubricating gel to protect your skin, before gently moving the Ultherapy wand over sagging and damaged areas. The entire process will take about an hour and should be completely comfortable. If you have a low threshold for pain, you may experience some mild discomfort, but in general Ultherapy treatments are very manageable for most patients.
Because Ultherapy treatments are non-invasive and target the deep inner layers of your skin, rather than the delicate surface, there is no recovery period associated with this procedure. At the very most, you may experience some slight swelling, numbness and redness immediately after your appointment. However, these side effects are rare and should subside on their own fairly quickly. Other than that, you will be free to resume your normal daily routine right away, without any restrictions, pain or discomfort.
Because Ultherapy targets aging skin by encouraging your body to replenish youthful collagen, the results of your treatments will emerge gradually over time – usually in about six months. At that point, most of our patients in West Palm Beach and surrounding areas areas experience a visible improvement in the quality and appearance of their complexion, with lifted skin, less prominent wrinkles and a smoother and more vibrant overall look.
Although Ultherapy aims to deliver long-lasting results, you will continue to age normally after your treatments. As such, you may want to schedule regular follow-up visits to preserve your new look and address any future signs of aging as they emerge.
