Uplifting Skin Treatment
For tighter and firmer skin
Ultherapy® is an FDA-approved non-surgical skin tightening procedure using ultrasound technology to gradually strengthen and tone your skin from deep within. It lifts the skin on the face, neck, and brow and improves the lines and wrinkles on décolletage
WHAT DOES ULTHERAPY DO AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Ultherapy® is a collagen induction treatment using micro-focused ultrasound to penetrate deep into the connective tissue with thermal effect, reenergizing your body’s process to produce new collagen. Collagen is a natural protein that keeps skin firm, toned and youthful. Unfortunately, as we age, collagen breaks down, and skin strength and elasticity diminish.
