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 am 66 and in pretty good shape. Discussed this procedure with dr., he felt the sagging under my chin and wrinkles along my cheeks would definitely benefit, as would the slight drooping of my eyelids. Was a bit painful , even with meds. especially around the eyebrow/bony area. Like a dental... READ MORE

I personally think there are other machines out there that can produce somewhat the same result for much less. I feelthat because this procedure is somewhat new and because the technique is Ultra Sound then the initial price is inflated. I was one of the first to try the photo lite... READ MORE

I am 46 and had ultherapy - full face and neck - in May. I had a very strong reaction to the treatment - swelling, welts, swollen lumps for up to 10 days after. Also one burn. It was also extremely painful and I generally have a high pain threshold. I have uploaded a photo so that others can see... READ MORE

I had done a few years ago. Yes, you will look better for few months - I think because skin is plumped by swelling. My neck and lower face is back to the prior condition! I would not recommend - your money is better spent with fillers instead. I think this was caused by media and... READ MORE

I was hoping for a firming up of my jawline and neck, which are aging faster than my face. Thermage had been a waste of money; I was hoping for more with Ultherapy. Alas, the difference was negligible, and such a far cry from the before and after photos I was shown. It was a disappointment. I... READ MORE

I had an Ultherapy procedure done last year at about this this same time, and the results continue to hold! Wihthin about 30 days the skin along my jaw and neck area tightened up and continues to show improvements over the next 2-3 months. While mildly painful to undergo (I didn't follow... READ MORE

Dr. Gerstman was so knowledgeable on Ulthera and had an in depth understanding of the machine and biology behind it. Only problem is they quoted me $3000 which seems so steep. Maybe because they do a 2-pass protocol where she does one pass at 4.5mm to hit the muscle then 2.0 or 3.0 to hit the... READ MORE

I've been looking for a treatment for the crepey skin under my eyes. I went to The Face Place in Hurst for a facial and talked with the Abby about my skin concerns. Abby was honest and very knowledgeable. I was leaning toward fillers but Abby suggested Ultherapy under my eyes. I decided to... READ MORE

I can't believe I spent £3k on this treatment. I must have been mad! It was extremely painful - almost unbearable - and has made absolutely no difference at all. I went into it hoping for some improvement to my jowls, which are starting to make their way south. Also the doctor said it would ... READ MORE

I had the Ultherapy treatment today at Dr. Madnani's office. Happy to report that it wasn't painful at all! The discomfort that you feel is minor and completely tolerable. My jowls and neckline already look tighter! Looking forward to the next few months and expecting continued improvement.... READ MORE

I went to Dermaskin (St-Eustache, Québec, Canada). Meet with Dre Laflamme for a free consultation. She proposed me a full face and neck treatmend, accompanied with pulsed light and profractional laser for my neck. Procedure lasted 2 hrs and was painfull (1,000 lines), especially profractional ...

I had a facelift a few years ago and although I was happy with my result, I still couldn't combat the inevitable aging process. I felt like I could use a little tweak in my lower face and neck. Dr. Duplechain discussed Ultherapy with me and it seemed to be just what I needed. Sure enough, it... READ MORE

A few weeks ago, I had Ultherapy on my upper face. It takes a month to see results and up to 3 months for the full effect. After just one week there was noticeable improvement. Now others are telling me how great my skin looks; they think I'm using a new make-up. They don't realize my skin is... READ MORE

The pain was bearable. I was expecting much worse. The cheeks were less painful than the brows but the brow area was smaller. The process took about 35 minutes. Immediately after, I was up and about. I visited my Doctors bathroom to freshen up. I noticed slight redness on my brows and barely and... READ MORE

I just tried Ultherapy a few days ago. I can testify that it was extremely painful. They're basically burning your face under your skin and really, that's what it feels like. I was so scared by some of these reviews mentioning nerve damage and fat loss so I asked the doctor to use the lowest... READ MORE

Dr.patel and her staff are wonderful. I was very unhappy noticing my lower jaw loosing it's shape after 40. I went to Dr. Patel originally as my gynecologist, she was so kind to talk me through the things that I could do to be more comfortable aging. One procedure that she discussed was... READ MORE

I am 60, and my face had become very thin, gaunt and saggy from unintended weight loss due to illness. A I had always looked younger than my years and the weight loss aged me. A supposedly good doctor "sold" Ultherapy to me as a way to tighten things back up and rebuild collagen. It did exactly... READ MORE

I am not seeing the full results of my ultheraphy yet as it takes about 3 months to see them, but here is my experience. My face was cleaned and numbing cream was applied, also I was given numbing injections. What I felt was hot, but only for seconds at a time. It is hard to describe the... READ MORE

After reading some of the negative reviews regarding ultherapy I was very hesitant to do it and almost didn't. I have had a fraxel treatment in the past and had other laser treatments without harmful effects so I decided to cross my fingers and try it. I'm so glad I did. It has been 3 weeks... READ MORE

I was talked into this ridiculous (money making for the doctor) by a plastic surgeon...who swears by it. Oh ya, its supposed to shrink wrap your loose skin and tighten up the face and neck. Um....no. It swells the face temporarily, so you looked filled out. However, after several months after,... READ MORE
