What is Ultherapy non-surgical facelift?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure done in our office that tackles aesthetic concerns like wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
What it treats
Ultherapy works to tighten and firm the skin by stimulating collagen production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin, and lifting the skin back and up, like a facelift. As the name suggests, an Ultherapy non-surgical facelift near Minneapolis can treat the area of the face, notably:
- the neck
- under the chin
- along the jawline
- in the brow area
But Ultherapy can also treat skin laxity of the décolleté (the chest area).
How it works
Using ultrasound energy with focused imaging, Ultherapy bypasses the first layer of the skin, making it safer and more comfortable than surgery. This ultrasound energy generates a thermal effect under the skin, which stimulates collagen production.
Collagen is the body’s youth serum. It creates elasticity in the skin, keeping it firm and tight. So by stimulating the growth of collagen, Ultherapy allows your body to essentially defy time and gravity!
Benefits of the treatment
Whether we like it or not, we all age. You can take back your youth with an Ultherapy treatment. One of the most obvious signs of aging is sagging skin and wrinkles. But oftentimes we don’t feel old enough to exhibit obvious signs of aging, so it can quickly lead to a loss of self-confidence. Undergoing an Ultherapy non-surgical facelift near Minneapolis can give you back the face you know and love–the one that mirrors how young you feel on the inside!
Safe and effective
The Ultherapy procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical. It requires no anesthetic and does not leave scars or physical detriments! It gives you real results without having to worry about the side effects of a lengthy and potentially dangerous surgery.
Because this procedure is outpatient, you can resume your daily routine as soon as you leave! It’s a perk of the treatment that’s great for anyone with, say, a job, or a family, or any other daily tasks they’d like to get done (so…everybody)!
No artificial fillers
For some, the idea of having artificial additives or non-organic materials in the body may turn them away from the idea of medical spa procedures. But because Ultherapy stimulates the growth of our own naturally occurring collagen, you can rest assured that you’ll simply enjoy the benefits of higher collagen production rates!
What to expect (the process)
The process of getting an Ultherapy non-surgical facelift at our clinic is simple, comfortable, and quick. Here’s what the process will look like:
First, the consultation
You’ll come into our clean and comfortable office where you’ll meet with a physician or aesthetician. Together, we’ll discuss your desired outcomes, any concerns you may have, and how this treatment can help. We’ll design your specialized treatment plan and go over the Ultherapy procedure in detail to prepare you for your appointment.
Then, the treatment
There are no special preparations for your treatment, but you may want to arrive with a clean and bare procedure area (no makeup, lotion, or creams).
We will perform the procedure in one of our comfortable and sanitary treatment rooms. To begin, our highly trained aesthetic expert will take a close look at your face and neck to map it out for the process. An ultrasound gel will be applied to the skin, and then we’ll begin the treatment.
The Ultherapy device delivers ultrasound heat in small sections at a time, and we’ll monitor you closely to direct the pulses to the desired locations. The procedure takes about 20 to 60 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.
Once you’re ready to leave, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment for 6 months after your initial visit. At the follow-up we will discuss results and check in. You can drive yourself back to work or home! Easy peasy!
Things to look for in a Ultherapy provider
Up-to-date, high quality equipment
This procedure requires the use of ultrasound technology, which is monitored closely by an aesthetician using a screen. A trusted medical spa will not only use the best, most up-to-date, FDA-approved technology available, but will also have staff with intimate knowledge of how those technologies work.
Exceptionally well trained, professional staff
It is our job as the medical professionals to make you feel safe, informed, and at ease during the treatment process from start to finish. You deserve to be in safe hands during your treatment. During your med spa search, you can look through About Us pages to see if the values of the company are up to your standards (and they should be high standards; this is your face we’re talking about!).
Let those who have come before you help in deciding which Ultherapy provider is best for you. While searching, make sure to read reviews so you can decide for yourself if you’ll be in good hands.
Am I a good candidate for Ultherapy treatments?
So you’ve made it this far; let’s make sure you’re a good candidate for the treatment!
A suitable candidate for Ultherapy is someone with some degree of skin laxity, or skin sagging.
Typically, sagging of the skin occurs with age as the skin naturally loses elasticity. Someone in their 30s or older with mild-to-moderate skin laxity is a good candidate. Ultherapy can also be used as a preventative measure, so sometimes people younger than 30 undergo the procedure to stay “ahead of the game”.
Benefits compared to a facelift
While Ultherapy non-surgical facelift near Minneapolis is not a replacement for a standard surgical facelift, there are many people who either aren’t ready to dive into surgery, or aren’t yet in need of a full facelift. Ultherapy is a happy medium. Additionally, patients enjoy no downtime and the non-invasive nature of the procedure is very appealing.
If you are someone with severe skin laxity, a surgical facelift may be a better option for you, but it’s always worth getting the opinion of a professional!

Frequently Asked Questions We Get About Ultherapy
Does Ultherapy hurt?
Recently, Ultherapy protocols have been updated to greatly improve pain factors involved with the procedure. Discomfort tends to be minimal, but we offer all patients complimentary nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help ease any discomfort or anxiety during the procedure. Patients typically do not require pain medications after the procedure.
What is the recovery period?
Because Ultherapy is non-surgical, there is very little downtown involved with the procedure. You can resume all normal activities directly following your treatment!
How much does Ultherapy cost?
Because we customize treatments for patients’ specific goals, price can be hard to determine prior to a consultation. However, a significant price factor depends on the areas being treated. If you’re looking to get just a small portion of the face, the price will be less than if you were to pursue an aggressive chest and neck session as well. You can schedule a consultation with us to discuss your treatment and pricing.
How long does it take to see results?
You may see a “boost” in skin elasticity immediately following the procedure, but because Ultherapy stimulates the natural growth of new collagen, you can typically see true results in about 2 to 3 months. In some cases, it takes around 6 months to see the full effect. However, the procedure only needs to be done once to see the full effect of the new collagen growth.
