Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment used to lift and tighten loose skin on areas such as the eyebrows, jawline, and jowls, as well as improve wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to heat targeted tissue under the surface of the skin, triggering the natural production of collagen. While some people might see an effect immediately after their treatment, most real results appear over two to three months as the collagen gradually improves skin’s tone and elasticity. LEARN MORE ›

I came to see Dr Tal to talk about Ultherapy after reading many reviews online. What I liked about him is that he wasn't pushing for the treatment at all and was actually honest about the fact that it wasn't working on everyone. Considering that the other option for my issues (sagging jaw and... READ MORE

Let me start by saying that whenever I have the impulse to document my experiences it always seems to end up pretty detailed and lengthy. Apologies if you were after short and ambiguous; that’s some other girl. Anyway, here is my (possibly overly detailed) adventure in to the world of U... READ MORE

I was close to 60 years old and felt I needed a little lift around the eyes, chin, neck and forehead just to freshen up my face and neck. I can honestly say for me there were no cons only pros with the biggest pro being that it kept lifting and tightening my skin for several months. I am... READ MORE

As any reputable practitioner will tell you, any procedure invasive or not, has what one MD called here, and expiration date. Two years ago @ the tune of $10K, I'd underwent lipo in NYC of my jowls and under-chin. While happy with the results, the genetics of the women in my family aren't... READ MORE

Great consult with Judy...This was my second Ultherapy treatment in about two years and Judy was far more knowledgable than my previous provider in Seattle. She customized the treatment for me and my unique trouble spots. I had quite a bit of swelling for about three days afterward, but saw... READ MORE

My motivation to go for the Ultherapy is because I don't want to go under knife and I would like to tighten my sagging skin around my face. I did some research before I had it done By Dr. Edward S. Kwak in New York City. It is a bit expensive, but he is a plastic surgeon and I think I can trust... READ MORE

It was suggested that this procedure could work on thin, loose skin on upper arms. I was cautioned that it may be several months before I would see results. There were no results, whatsoever, and it IS very painful. It's probably best left to face, only, as the arm is a very large piece of... READ MORE

I have been thinking about getting this procedure done for several months now. I'm 35 years old, and my neck was starting to show some banding and wrinkling basically I was starting to look my age. I contemplated this procedure due to the reviews on the pain. Well, I'm so glad I chose to take... READ MORE

I went ahead and did the full face and neck and chest area. I'm 5 month out and there is no difference what so ever. I got it mostly for my sleep wrinkles which drive my nuts!!! As hard as I try to sleep on my back I always wake up cuddled next to my boyfriend. Finally when I look in the mirror... READ MORE

I stayed 10 days with a bad bruising under one eye because of a blood vessel which has burst Absolutely no result after 4 months waiting .. Maybe even worse than before because i can see that under my eyes that it's a little more "hollow" than before. Very expensive / no result = i wont... READ MORE

VERY, VERY, VERY painful ! The gel only would not cut it. No one mentioned to take any painkillers first. Tears of excruciating pain as the machine worked my neck and bone line. Face was a tiny little better, but after all this money spent and suffering I hope it will show results, because I... READ MORE

My experience was made comfortable first by the technicians, they explained what i was going to feel, and that helped me be at ease. The procedure itself was do-able, at certain areas of the face i felt presure and discomfort, other areas i was perfectly fine, it was more like tiny needles... READ MORE

I just had it done last week. They gave me a vicodin and xanax [I highly recommend taking some pain meds] It is painful even with the meds, but I did very well, did not have to rest during treatment. The aesthetic PA did it and did not give any aftercare info. Like your neck is numb, swollen and... READ MORE

Of course, we all want this treatment to work. I had two sessions, treating both deep and superficial tissues for each session. The procedure was quite painful but with a dose of strong painkillers, it was tolerable. The best thing I can say is that I did get some satisfaction knowing that I... READ MORE

I have tried many things over the years - Fraxel, Fraxel C02 once (extremely painful but definitely worth it), PRP (I'm a believer), Pelleve, Botox, Juvaderm, Radiesse, Voluma (love it), Titan, and other non-surgical options to maintain a natural more youthful appearance. With all these... READ MORE

I had been thinking about getting Ulthera done for awhile now but was skeptical of results. I have read many reviews and articles about the procedure and finally decided to give it a try since there was no way I would consider an actual face lift or any invasive procedure. I had the procedure... READ MORE

Ultherapy was somewhat painful at times. For the most part, it wasn't that bad, but there were a few zingers that almost brought tears to my eyes. The good part is, each zap (which I say, "zap" because it honestly feels like you're getting electrocuted a little bit) only lasted for the count of... READ MORE

I had the softening and gradual drop of my cheeks and brow that comes on in your late 30s. I have done Botox and juvederm for 10 years, but the laxity of my skin was becoming an issue. I was looking for a non-surgical option to correct early signs of aging. I also had no time for "down-time."... READ MORE

I was very happy with my Ultherapy result. Definitely made a difference in the way my face and neck look. Since the treatment is an ultrasound there was no down time and I was back to work the next day. I feel more youthful and am very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend this... READ MORE

Terribly painful. Absolutely no sign of improvement in the neck or facial areas. A waste of time and money, and after a f/u visit it was apparent there was not change, I was asked to come back again in another 3 months for another pass over the middle of my neck. This visit was canceled two... READ MORE
