This device uses ultrasound waves to heat up the deeper layers of skin, tightening it. Some doctors have gotten great results with this device, but the treatments can be painful.

As of this writing, Ultherapy is probably the gold-standard for non-surgical skin tightening. However, even though it’s probably the most aggressive treatment out there, I’ve seen variable results. I’ve seen some patients with visibly tightened and lifted skin, and other patients who’ve paid thousands of dollars to have the procedure, only to see no visible results several months later.

If you are considering having this treatment, talk at length with the plastic surgeon or dermatologist administering it, to make sure you have a plan in case you don’t get the results you are looking for.
