Using Ultherapy Beverly Hills aesthetic professsionals utilize ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen and elastin within the skin. Collagen is a primary protein in the human body, and is a major player in the growth and preservation of skin, hair, nails, soft tissues, and even bones.
Similarly, elastin is a key protein which supports the skin’s ability to “bounce back” when it is poked or pinched, as well as elasticity in other soft tissues. As we age, our body’s ability to naturally produce collagen and elastin, and the structures which bind fibers together, begin to weaken. Ultherapy offers the technology to administer fiber-disrupting heat to each layer of our skin, prompting an instant firming effect and a regenerative response in our body’s natural collagen and elastin. Ultherapy treatment results are immediate, continuous, and long-lasting.
In contrast to other non-surgical skin-rejuvenating procedures, Ultherapy offers the ability to treat various layers of tissue while surface skin remains completely undamaged. Ultrasound heat is administered in a targeted manner to any of the three layers of facial skin: the epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous layer. The epidermis is the outermost layer, followed by the dermis, with the subcutaneous layer as the innermost layer of the skin.
Collagen and elastin fiber structures are found within the deeper layers of the skin. The ultrasound heat sent to the lower layer of skin during Ultherapy treatment disrupts the collagen fibrils within and prompts a rejuvenating response. The affected collagen fibrils contract, firming the lower layer of skin. In addition to the immediate firming of the skin, this rejuvenating response prompts the growth of new collagen and elastin proteins as well as the rebuilding of fibrous collagen and elastin structures which have deteriorated with age. This boost in collagen production and fibrous structure rebuilding continues to improve the skin’s texture, firmness, and appearance over several months following treatment, and results may last a year or longer.

Common concerns for which patients are interested in receiving Ultherapy treatment include:
Our Beverly Hills Ultherapy specialist will begin the treatment by applying lubricating ultrasound gel to the skin before guiding the hand-piece over the area to be treated.
Treatment is 30-60 minutes long.
The hand-piece will heat the tissue beneath the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen growth. Some patients will experience mild discomfort. Recovery time is minimal with some patients noticing smoother and tighter results almost immediately. Most patients tend to see the most dramatic results two to six months after treatment as the collagen continues to produce. Although rare, minor swelling or redness can occur but usually resolves after 24 hours.

Ultherapy results are immediate and continuous. A single treatment can give results that last up to several years, depending on the patient’s aging process. In some cases, a follow-up session is recommended to patients after one year.
*Individual results may vary
There is virtually no recovery time needed for Ultherapy. Almost all patients return to their normal activity the same day.
It is not uncommon for results to last about two years, but annual treatments are usually recommended depending on the individual patient’s response to treatment.
Many patients will notice tightening of the treated skin immediately upon Ultherapy treatment, but the full effects of Ultherapy will develop over several months as collagen production remains elevated.
Ultherapy is a preferable option for those who are interested in a less invasive, cost effective procedure with little to no downtime. Patients in their 30’s or older and who have noticed mild to moderate loss of firmness or emergence of wrinkles in the face, neck, under the chin, or on the chest are typically ideal candidates for Ultherapy.
