There is not a home therapy available for Ulthera. It is a focused intense ultrasound energy that often requires medical treatment to minimize the discomfort. Even lesser treatments which can provide improvement such as Pelleve, are not at-home treatments.

Ulthera uses microfcpocused ultrasound at high energy to stimulate collagen regeneration for a lifting effect. It would not be safe to do on your own so it must be done under a physician's supervision.

Ultherapy is only available in physician offices. It is an effective way to lift and tighten the skin of the face and neck.
