Ultherapy - Noninvasive Skin Tightening - Central AZ

38 Procedures ( View All )


Dr. Holden and Dr. Tsujimura provide their patients, at Scottsdale Plastic Surgeons, with an advanced nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatment called ultherapy. It is a skin tightening technique that uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin including the eyebrows, neck and under the chin. Once stimulated, these specific layers permit the body’s own natural healing process to lift and tighten loose skin on the face, without disturbing the surface of the skin. Our Scottsdale patients, who use ultherapy, have amazingly tighter skin that looks smoother and younger. 

Procedure Process

Ultherapy is an in-office, outpatient procedure that is performed without the use of anesthesia, and in less than 30 minutes. Once the targeted areas to be treated are confirmed, the practitioner will administer the ultrasound rays via a handheld device to these areas. During the procedure, patients will feel a mild warming sensation or prickling beneath their skin. This procedure does not cause pain nor does it cause discomfort in most cases.

What to Expect

Ultherapy will produce a “boost” in the skin’s appearance almost immediately following the procedure. However, optimal results typically reveal themselves over time within 2-3 months. This is because elastic collagen builds over time, producing results slowly and effectively. While Ultherapy does not produce the dramatic results that surgery typically does, it is a great alternative for those seeking subtle changes without having to undergo surgery.

Ultherapy FAQs

Ideal Candidates?

Ultherapy is an ideal procedure for individuals that are not comfortable with an invasive surgical procedure, but still want to see noticeable results. Ultherapy is perfect for anyone that has noticed a “relaxing” of their skin, especially around the eyebrows, on the neck, and under the chin. The ideal age for this treatment are those in their 30’s and 40’s, who experience moderate skin laxity.

How Long do the Results Last?

Ultherapy results can be seen immediately following the procedure, however, it is more common for patients to see results a few months following their procedure. Patients can expect the results to last for a year at which time they could undergo another procedure. 

How Many Treatments?

The amount of treatments required for optimal results depends on the patient and their goals. Some patients will only need a single treatment session, while others will require several.
