  • Brow
  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Jowls
  • Décolletage

Ultherapy Science

Ultrasound imaging is what gives Ultherapy its unique power. It allows our providers to visualize the precise underlying structures that will receive the treatment energy.

This ensures that we deliver the collagen-boosting treatment to the areas that need it most. There’s no guesswork – and that’s the true beauty of this procedure.

Other non-surgical treatments use approaches that upset the surface of the skin. Ultherapy is unique in that it bypasses the skin’s surface layer and administers the treatment energy directly to the tissues that need it most.

Once this energy reaches the target areas beneath the skin’s surface, it triggers your body’s natural healing response. Your body then kickstarts the regenerative process and produces fresh collagen, which revives your youthful appearance.


The length of your Ultherapy treatment will depend in large part on the area you are addressing. A typical brow and neck procedure lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, while a chest treatment may take just 30 minutes.

To begin your procedure, we will thoroughly cleanse your skin and identify the treatment areas. We will then cover the target site with ultrasound gel and place the Ultherapy applicator on your skin. Using the ultrasound imaging technology, we will visualize the underlying structures and determine the ideal placement for the energy. As the treatment is administered, you will feel mild sensations beneath the surface of your skin. These are normal and indicate that the process of building fresh collagen has been successfully initiated.


There is no downtime associated with Ultherapy. As such, you will be free to return to work and resume your normal daily routine right away.

As far as side effects are concerned, your skin may appear a bit flushed or pink for a few hours post-treatment. A few of our clients have expressed that their skin was sensitive or numb to the touch temporarily.

Most of our Coronado patients require just one Ultherapy session to achieve their ideal results. However, if you would like to preserve your youthful look, we recommend a follow-up treatment one year later.

Is Ultherapy safe?

Ultrasound therapy has been safely used for over 50 years throughout doctor’s offices across the country. After 350,000 clinical studies and treatments across the world, Ultherapy has established itself as a safe and effective way around traditional plastic surgery.
Ultherapy achieves its incredible results by treating the deep layers of your skin without upsetting the surface area (i.e. via cutting or incision points).

When I will notice the results?

Most of our La Jolla patients express that their results are optimal three months after their appointment. However, many see an initial improvement within days.
Ultherapy can lift and tighten your aging skin – without the need for surgery. If you’re ready to look as young as you feel, please contact our office today and schedule a consultation for one of the greatest treatments of Ultherapy San Diego has to offer.
