Ultra Lift is a nonsurgical skin-tightening treatment using high intensity focused ultrasound energy to gently heat the tissue and stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, tightening and lifting the skin. ULTRACONTOUR (HIFU) technology is FDA-cleared. Ultra Lift doesn't affect the top skin layer, minimizing side effects and downtime.
An Ultra Lift session can take 30 to 90 minutes. After Ultrasound-conducting gel is applied to the skin, we will use a handheld transducer to deliver ultrasound energy into your skin at the precise depth to boost collagen production. We will adjust the treatment depth as the treatment progresses.
What should you expect during Ultra Lift recovery?
Typically, there’s no downtime after Ultra Lifting, though you can expect to see some slight swelling, redness, and (very rarely) bruising. You may feel a bit sore or tingly in the treated areas for anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks afterward. Many people see immediate improvement as the heat energy causes collagen fibers to constrict. Over the next 3 to 12 months your body will increase collagen production and add fullness.
How long will Ultra Lift results last?
You'll likely need to return for more Ultra Lift sessions as time goes on. The new collagen lasts for years, but you’ll be fighting the ongoing aging process and gravity. We expect most people to return every two years for an additional Ultra Lift treatment to maintain their results. Other patients who want to be more proactive and forestall skin aging will continue treatment when the skin has a hint of sagging, repeating treatment every six months.
