ULTHERAPY

Lift and tighten your skin without surgery.

At MeiRai, we are constantly striving to give our patients the most effective non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Ultherapy is just that: a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift. Although you will not get the same amount of lift as a face lift, you will see visible lifting and tightening and smoothing of wrinkles. Treatment is most effective on the face, neck, and chest. It can also give a very nice brow lift, all without an incision and with no downtime! It is the only FDA-approved technology for “lifting.”

Feel free to contact us with your questions!

How it Works

  • Ultherapy targets areas beneath the skin with focused ultrasound energy, using the right temperature to support collagen regeneration. The heat energy from the transducer is precisely targeted at different depths, stimulating the dermal layer (deep layer) of skin and the fascia (fibrous tissue surrounding muscles).
  • The ultrasound energy stimulates collagen and elastic tissue, which will result in firmer skin, less sagging, and smoother wrinkles. That means that it tightens and lifts the skin at the same time.

Ideal Candidate

  • A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with some degree of laxity or sagging to the point that the skin looks and feels less firm. Loose skin under the neck and chin or lines and wrinkles on the chest are also signals a patient might be a candidate.
  • Typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many people who want some facial lifting but are not ready for surgery, whether mentally, physically, or financially.
  • There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game,” as well as patients wanting an aesthetic maintenance option.

What to Expect

  • There is no real preparation before Ultherapy. Also, since this is a “no downtime” procedure, your lifestyle can continue as usual after the procedure.
  • During the treatment, the Ultherapy transducer is placed against the skin and the ultrasound is used to assess the depth of collagen in your skin. Ultrasound energy is then delivered to the targeted areas. You might experience quick, intermittent feelings of heat and tingling during the treatment.
  • For some patients, the procedure itself is uncomfortable. If so, our PRONOX (nitrous oxide “laughing gas”) machine or CBD drops are available for no added charge. The nitrous will leave your system quickly so that you may safely drive home after the procedure. We can also provide medication to help make the procedure more comfortable, although you will need to make sure you have a ride home after the procedure is complete.
  • A single procedure can last up to 90 minutes, depending on the treatment. After Ultherapy, you may have some mild facial tenderness for a few days.

Results

  • The proven results of Ultherapy are clear, appearing over two to three months as new collagen works to lift skin on the neck, chin, and brow—as well as smooth skin on the upper chest. Results may improve over the following three to six months, and can last a year or more depending on the individual. It won’t duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, but Ultherapy is a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery.
