The Non-Surgical Uplift!
Ultherapy Before & After Photos
If you’re not ready for a facelift but want to look younger and refreshed, it’s time to consider Ultherapy® – the non-surgical facelift alternative!
Ultherapy uses non-invasive ultrasound energy to tighten the deep foundational layers of the muscle and skin, providing an uplift and tightening effect for lax, wrinkled skin on the face, neck or décolleté with no invasive measures or downtime. If a surgical facelift is not right for you, Ultherapy can revitalize your appearance without the risk or recovery time associated with surgery.
Ultherapy can be used as a single treatment or in combination with laser rejuvenation or injectables, making it a perfect addition to AVIE!’s services.

Ultherapy is a non-surgical face treatment that uses ultrasound to lift and tone loose or sagging skin.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin – typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. What’s more, ultrasound imaging allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
Ultherapy uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology, which has received FDA clearance for use in this type of medical aesthetic procedure.
No. Unlike a facelift, Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that addresses the skin and support layers below it — without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Ultherapy is an “uplift,” not a “facelift.” While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a great option if you are not ready for a facelift or are looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Lasers typically address issues in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes). Ultherapy addresses the deep skin layer and the foundational muscle layer addressed in cosmetic surgery that lift and lend support to the skin. Be sure to ask about combination treatments!
A full face treatment takes one to two hours, while a partial face or brow lift treatment can take around 30 minutes.
Patients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over three to six months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 12 months following a procedure.
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. There is always the possibility for other, less common post-procedural effects, which we’ll review with you.
Cost varies according to the area being treated. Please contact AVIE! for a complimentary Ultherapy consultation.
