The Ultherapy treatment is a precise and non-surgical approach to lifting tissue. This innovative technology has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and it’s the only aesthetic treatment that utilizes ultrasound imaging to view the tissue located beneath the skin’s surface. The Ulthera System is unparalleled in the market and underwent a 510(k) “de novo” review by the FDA. Our Orange County Ultherapy treatment triggers the regenerative process, and the full results can be expected between two to three months. During the FDA clinical trial, 9 out of 10 patients noticed a significant lifting of their brow line, resulting in a refreshed appearance overall, and firmer skin in other areas of the face and neck. The technology allows for both safety and a noticeable outcome by using established methods to see below the skin and accurately treat the area. Even though there is no substitute for surgery’s dramatic effects, our Newport Beach Ultherapy treatment provides a non-invasive approach to significant skin tightening.
Utilizing focused ultrasound technology, Ultherapy is a remarkable skin rejuvenation treatment that effectively tightens loose skin, commonly experienced during the aging process. Patients will typically notice tremendous improvement with just one treatment, but multiple treatments may be necessary for complete facial rejuvenation. What sets ultrasound energy apart from the laser is that it only affects targeted areas and does not impact surrounding skin or tissues. During treatment, the focused ultrasound heats the skin and contracts existing collagen fibers, stimulating collagen production through a process called tissue-remodeling. Gradually, over several months, the skin’s firmness and quality will continue to improve as higher amounts of natural collagen regenerate within the skin layers.
The treatment requires about 30 to 90 minutes to complete (based upon the number of areas to be tightened). There is some discomfort associated with the treatment, but as it is short duration, most patients do not mind, particularly due to the long-term results! It is better not to apply a numbing cream as that can reduce how well the procedure works. Most patients think it is well worth putting up with the funny sensation, which is reported to feel like a prickling heat on your skin.
The benefits of this treatment include:
Ultherapy is an ideal solution for those who are noticing signs of skin sagging, loss of firmness, or looseness in the neck or chin area when looking in the mirror. Typically, this treatment is recommended for individuals aged 30 or older who desire a more youthful appearance and want to achieve a firmer, more supple quality to their facial skin.

Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that is effective in tightening and firming the skin. However, if an individual is suffering from severe skin laxity, sagging, wrinkles, or lines, a surgical facelift may be a more suitable treatment. Conversely, for younger patients who desire supple, firmer skin without surgery, Ultherapy is a highly effective non-surgical treatment option available.
This is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, which may result in temporary redness of the face. Although most patients feel normal immediately after treatment, some may experience slight sensitivity. In case of any discomfort, over-the-counter pain medication is advisable for relief. The redness usually fades within an hour, and the use of makeup is allowed right after the treatment. The only post-treatment restrictions are to avoid hot tubs and saunas for a week, and to use pillowcases that haven’t been rinsed with fabric softeners.
Ultherapy treatments produce results that look entirely natural, as it relies on the activation of your body’s natural collagen to create a firming effect. It’s essential to note that patience is necessary to see the complete impact of these treatments. The timing of when maximum results are reached can vary from person to person, but you can typically expect to notice a considerable difference in approximately three to six months. During this period, the natural collagen in your skin will continue to tighten and firm, leading to the desired outcome.
