What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive / nonsurgical procedure using ultrasound technology to lift the brows and mid-face and tighten the neck and area under the chin. It also can treat fine lines and wrinkles in the décolletage area. Ultherapy uses innovative technology that it uses your body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin and smooth lines and wrinkles. It is also the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin.
"Dr. Hix and her staff have been amazing through my whole process. She is a straight shooter and very honest. She will not recommend any surgery you don’t need and will be honest about the possible results. She did a great job on my stomach skin removal and even is doing an additional surgery to fix some dog ears on the sides. I am so happy with their service and my surgery."- D.G. / Google / Mar 16, 2023

"Writing this review solely on my consultation with Dusky. I came in today for a breast augmentation consultation. I indicated on my paperwork that I am currently taking a particular medication. Turns out, I’ll need to wait a year until I’d be eligible for surgery. I was told this before my breast were examined (totally fine and normal protocol I’m sure) but I was nervous that because the consultant knew I wouldn’t be booking my surgery anytime soon, my experience there today would suffer. Well, I was wrong! After my examination, I was told I’d be a better candidate for a breast lift. My consultant was very pleasant and informative and explained the reasoning for this. I never once felt rushed or less important which I totally appreciate. I left there hopeful and excited to start this process again next year. 🙂"- M.G. / Google / Feb 23, 2023
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound imaging to pass energy through the superficial layers of the skin to target the deeper, core area where collagen production occurs. What is great about Ultherapy being the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging is that it allows your provider to see the layers of tissue being targeted to ensure the energy is distributed where it will be most beneficial. During the procedure, your tissue will undergo what is called “neocollagenesis,” which is the increased production of new collagen. Over time, this increase produces a noticeably rejuvenated, uplifted look, which is exactly what you want to happen!
Does Ultherapy Hurt?
To be effective, Ultherapy must heat the deeper layer of tissues under your skin, so it will cause some discomfort in particular areas. For a regular treatment, the provider will typically do two passes over the treatment area, each at a different transducer lever. At an additional charge, you can opt for a third pass over the area. The good thing is that the discomfort only lasts for a second and then it’s over.
Ultherapy Side Effects
Some of the side effects for Ultherapy are redness, mild swelling, and sensitivity to the touch. Ultherapy generally has little downtime.
