Ulthera is the first FDA-approved non-surgical, non-invasive skin rejuvenating procedure achieved by using micro-focused ultrasound. Ultherapy gently heats the underlying tissue and as a result, the rebuilding process begins. In just one office treatment, the focused ultrasound:

  • Initiates new collagen production
  • Begins to gradually tone, lift, and decrease skin laxity
  • Reverses the aging process
  • Adds facial contour and definition
  • Results seen within 90 days
  • No downtime

Ideal Candidates for Ulthera

Ultherapy is recommended for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity. Patients who prefer to avoid surgical lift procedures can consider this treatment. Candidates should have realistic expectations and must be patient while their treatment results develop gradually.

Your Consultation

During your consultation at Dr. Banis Plastic Surgery, we will perform a physical evaluation. Tell us about your areas of concern, and feel free to ask questions, which we will be happy to address. We will create a customized treatment plan and discuss all its details with you.

Ulthera Treatment Session

An Ultherapy session can last up to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment areas. It will start with the application of gel onto the treatment area. A small device will be used to send ultrasound energy into the skin. Using an ultrasound monitor, we can adjust the depth of the treatment to target specific skin layers.


Optimal results can be seen over a six-month period by lifting and tightening the skin. Areas of treatment include:

  • The brow
  • Crow’s feet
  • Upper lip
  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Under the chin
  • Neck


The patient can get back to normal activities right after their Ulthera treatment. No downtime or recovery period is required.

Results will not appear immediately after treatment. Instead, they will gradually improve as more collagen is produced. Depending on the patient, full results may be experienced after four to six months. Some patients may require additional treatment sessions, which will be scheduled accordingly.

Ulthera Cost

The price of Ultherapy may depend on factors like the size and number of treatment areas. The number of sessions can also influence the total cost of the procedure.

Patient Testimonials

"I can honestly say that I am impressed"

“I have had Ultherapy treatment and I can honestly say that I am impressed. Each treatment brings an immediate tightening effect and then over the next few months you see your skin continue to improve. It is excellent at stimulating the deeper skin layers. The collagen in my face gets a major boost – and so does my confidence level! This is a treatment that actually produces real and noticeable results. I now have a maintenance treatment on a yearly basis. The treatment is completely tolerable with no downtime. In my opinion, there are not too many treatments available that can give you impressive results and no time out for healing, you’re good to go. You should approach the treatment with realistic expectations and afterwards be pleasantly surprised. It is not a miracle worker, but it just might be the next closest thing. My experience has been completely positive and I love to get a big bang for my buck. Ultherapy is an amazing treatment and a very good investment. Aging is inevitable, but who says you can’t do it gracefully and at a slower rate. I will also say that it is incredibly important to have it performed by a trusted provider who is well trained with this procedure.
