The Ulthera® Treatment
Ultrasound imaging is used to see the layers of tissue being treated. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment with no downtime that boosts collagen production and creates a lifting effect. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to generate a thermal effect under the skin, helping your body create fresh new collagen. A customized treatment plan allows the right depth and temperature to deliver energy into the area that is most beneficial for treatment areas.
Ulthera ® is the only non-invasive procedure authorized for sale by Health Canada to lift skin on the neck, under the Chin, and brow. It uses ultrasound images to identify the depth and location of your collagen-rich tissue in order to pinpoint exactly where to deliver the energy.
Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy to various depths.

The treatment experience
Planning Your Ulthera Treatment
Your experience begins with a consultation with your expert laser technician to customize your skin treatments and tailor a unique plan specific to your skin needs. Together, you’ll create a treatment plan that best suits your needs. After reviewing your concerns, expectations, skincare regimen, price estimates, and your relevant medical history, the treatments can proceed. This consultation helps ensure you get the results you’re looking for with realistic expectations.
What to expect with your Ulthera treatment
Before the Treatment
Arriving without makeup and having a meal before the Ulthera treatment is ideal. Have a light meal within an hour of arriving for your treatment. Oral pain medication may be administered, so we recommend you organize a ride home, or we can suggest options.
During the Treatment
Experience a heated pin prick sensation to the skin, which occurs when the energy is deposited. These tiny energy points are delivered in lines to the precise depths for collagen stimulation. The feeling varies from person to person, but is totally doable and safe.
After the Treatment
Immediately post treatment, the area may look slightly pink and rough. Results improve with time. Results start to show between 3 and 6 months. They last up to 2 years.

Rarely, some spots of bruising occur, but typically bruising is not evident until 2-5 days post treatment. The forehead treatment may induce a mild headache, stinging, or hair-pulling sensation in your scalp, post treatment. This rarely occurs, but lasts less than 24 hours, and can continue to be sporadically bothersome for up to a week. Makeup can be applied immediately after the treatment and you can return to your normal activities.
Skin is cleansed and “Before” photos are taken as usual, the more special process are: treatment area is marked and ultrasound gel is applied over the treatment area. You will see ultrasound imaging is used to ensure proper placement of the hand-piece and targeting of skin layers. Hence, Ultherapy treatment begins and ultrasound energy is delivered beneath the skin.
