ULTRASOUND THERAPY FACIAL - a.k.a. NON-SURGICAL FACE LIFt

High-frequency Ultrasound (HIFU) Face Lifting $395 - $695

Ultrasound Therapy  is a non-surgical, non-invasive rejuvenation procedure for the
face, neck and chest, that uses ultra focused ultrasound & the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, & tighten loose skin.


Stimulating the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the surface of the skin. It also stimulates the creation of new collagen, which further helps the skin maintain its youthfulness.


The beauty of Ultrasound Therapy is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body’s own subtle healing response to gently,  gradually restore memory to the skin & its underlying tissue. Ultrasound Therapy requires no special recuperation or preparation & typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated & supplemented with new, stronger collagen.


While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, it has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery, & offers a ‘no downtime’ approach to improving lax skin in a meaningful way.

Who is a good candidate for Ultrasound Therapy?

A good candidate is someone with skin that has “relaxed” to the point of looking, & often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Typically, those in their thirties & older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultrasound Therapy is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. There are also younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
