Ultherapy V-Lift is a non-invasive, non-surgical method to reduce the width of the face, especially in the lower areas.
It sculpts the face while giving it a mild facelift-type effect.



Ultherapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin. It is often referred to as a non-surgical facelift or skin tightening treatment. The procedure stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that helps maintain the skin’s firmness and elasticity.

Microfocused Ultrasound (Ultherapy) has been FDA approved since 2009 to lift a sagging face. It does this by tightening not only the skin, but the layers under the skin which we call the SMAS. This is a tough layer comprising muscles and the fibrous tissue. This is a strong supporting layer for the face.

Sound waves are focused by Ultherapy to leave tiny shockwaves under the skin and into the SMAS. Each point of these shockwaves triggers a cascade of collagen regeneration that translates into firmer and tighter skin.




Ultherapy (skin-tightening with Ulthera) has been shown to produce measurable lifting of lax skin. In the pivotal clinical trial, noticeable improvement occurred in nearly 9 out of 10 patients (89%) resulting in less hooding or skin laxity on the upper eyelid and a more open, refreshed appearance overall. Study patients noted lifting, tightening and firming in other areas of the face and neck as well, such as the cheeks and along the jawline. Results developed gradually over a 90-day period following treatment and were still noticeable in patients assessed at 10 months after treatment.


Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure, meaning it doesn’t involve incisions or downtime associated with traditional facelift surgery.


Ultherapy allows for precise targeting of specific areas, such as the face, neck, and décolletage, to address localized sagging or laxity.


Results from Ultherapy are gradual and natural-looking, avoiding the sudden and sometimes artificial appearance that can be associated with surgical procedures.


While some patients may experience temporary redness or swelling, there is typically minimal downtime associated with Ultherapy. Most people can resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure.


The collagen production stimulated by Ultherapy can continue over several months, and the results may last for an extended period. However, individual responses may vary.

The ultrasound energy from Ultherapy triggers a healing response which, eventually after months, makes skin more elastic and more radiant. Skin forms new and improved collagen, which gradually tightens and lifts the skin from within. Collagen and elastin fibers are the main supportive structures within the skin against gravitational effects.

Ultrasound energy is delivered to desired depths below the surface of the skin, while leaving the top layers including the epidermis completely unaffected. With no breakage of skin, the Ultherapy procedure involves absolutely no recovery time.


The layer of skin that is of interest is the fibromuscular layer (also called the SMAS). It is a tough layer in the face and neck, and is rich in collagen and elastin. The SMAS is the layer which surgeons target in an open facelift procedure to produce the lift. It is also this layer which threads inserted during thread lifts procedures attach to.

The SMAS can now be accurately visualized with Ultherapy and energy (focused ultrasound) delivered precisely to it. The energy contracts the fibrous tissue within the SMAS and gives rise to a mild facelift-type effect.


Ultherapy’s safety profile is unparalleled. Having operated Ultherapy since 2009, we have not experienced any form of serious injury from Ultherapy, which sometimes can happen with most other energy based treatments.

Sometimes with Ultherapy, a reaction resembling a mild mosquito-bite, happens. These so called wheals are temporary and will typically settle within a few days.



The recovery process after Ultherapy is generally minimal compared to traditional surgical procedures. Here are some key points regarding the recovery process:

Immediate Effects: Some patients may experience mild redness, swelling, or tingling immediately after the Ultherapy procedure. These effects are usually temporary and should subside within a few hours.

Resume Skincare Routine: Patients can generally resume their regular skincare routine, including applying makeup, shortly after the procedure. It’s essential to follow any specific post-treatment instructions provided by the practitioner.

Hydration and Sunscreen: Staying well-hydrated and using sunscreen to protect the treated areas from sun exposure is advisable in the days following the procedure. Sun protection is crucial to support the skin’s healing process.

Gradual Results: While some patients may notice initial improvements, the full results of Ultherapy are typically gradual and may continue to develop over the following weeks and months as the stimulated collagen production takes effect.

Avoiding Intense Physical Activities: While there is no strict restriction on physical activities, it’s advisable to avoid intense workouts or activities that may cause excessive sweating for a day or two after the procedure.

Follow-Up Appointments: Depending on the individual and the treatment plan, practitioners may recommend follow-up appointments to assess the results and determine if additional sessions are needed.
