What are the benefits of Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure that harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck, and chest. Ultherapy works deep below the surface – without harming the outer layer of skin to firm, tighten and lift. Benefits include:
- Noticeable and natural-looking results over time, without surgery
- No downtime
- Excellent safety protocol with over 350,000 treatments worldwide
How does Ultherapy work?
Micro focused ultrasound energy is delivered deep below the level of the skin’s surface at different levels. This then initiates the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh new collagen and strengthen weak collagen. Results appear over 2 to 3 months and collagen continues to build for up to 12 months, gradually lifting and tightening skin on the face, chin and neck and smoothing skin on the chest.
Facial Skin Therapy Options
Unlike lasers, radio-frequency and other technologies, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver energy at optimal depths, temperature and precision. Also unique to Ultherapy is the use of ultrasound imaging, which allows the practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring energy is delivered safely and to where it will be most beneficial.
While Ultherapy does not duplicate the result of a facelift, it’s an exciting alternative for those with early changes of skin aging, who are not ready for surgery and for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery they have already had.
Skin laxity begins deep
Weakened collagen in the skin’s deep support structures results in laxity as we age. Collagen is a protein lattice work that provides structure to the skin and its deep support structures. After age 30 we all begin to diminish collagen production. Ultherapy treats deep to the skin’s foundation to achieve a non-surgical lift by tightening the existing collagen.and laying down new collagen
Ultherapy is a non-surgical option for people with mild to moderate skin laxity- those who want some lifting for skin that has lost elasticity, but are not ready for surgery, or want to stay ahead of the game, or prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery. A consultation with Dr. Jewell will determine if you are a good candidate for Ultherapy or if you are ready for a surgical procedure such as MACS lift (facelift), blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) or neck lift. Patients with excess fat under the chin (submental fat) may benefit from KYBELLA® injections. Dr. Jewell’s expertise in these areas will help you make the right choice for you and to get you the best results possible
The length of treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure takes about 60-90minutes. You will be able to return to all your activities within 24 hours of the treatment with little to no down time.
What does the treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. Comfort has been optimized through Ultherapy amplify, after a clinical trial yielded comparable efficiency at lower levels of energy transmitted. Dr. Jewell and his staff will take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible.

*Keep in mind that each patient is unique; your results may vary.
After the Procedure
Your skin may appear a bit flushed immediately after the treatment, but any redness should disappear in matters of hours. You may also feel mild tenderness under the treated areas, which is normal. This indicates that the healing process is underway and that new, healthier collagen is being generated. Collagen continues to generate up to 18 months in some cases. Result vary in every person and our skin will continue its natural aging process, so you may need to schedule an annual touch-up visit to maintain your results.
Dr. Jewell’s Expertise with Ultrasound Technologic Devices
Dr. Jewell the innovator, researcher, and educator likes that Ultherapy is scientifically proven to stimulate collagen production. Scientific research on treated skin showed that Ultherapy treatment increased the rate of collagen production on average of 42% in candidates with collagen types I and III-the types most often associated with aging.
In the FDA clinical trial, nine out of ten patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line. This resulted in a more open look to the eyes and a more youthful appearance over all. Patients also reported firmer, tighter, better fitting skin in other areas of the face and neck as well. A smoother texture and more even skin color are also possible side benefits.
The FDA-cleared Ultherapy procedure has been used safely in over 350,000 treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years.
