Dr. Selene offers Ultherapy, a non-surgical procedure that tightens and lifts skin with virtually no down time or need for recovery We know it sounds too good to be true, but trust us, it isn’t. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment that that the FDA has approved to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow.
Looking for a natural, non-surgical solution for loose, saggy skin?
Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the production of collagen deep within the skin. It is an entirely new type of nonsurgical treatment for the face that uses ultrasound to lift, tighten, and tone the skin. It takes less than an hour and there is no downtime.

Using the most advanced laser technology, the CORE laser gently treats the damage caused by sun and time. The skin contracts and tightens as the laser vaporizes the water in the tissue. The heat penetrates into the skin no deeper than half the thickness of a human hair. The old skin is then wiped away, leaving the new skin underneath to develop and regenerate. The laser also tightens and shrinks the collagen in the skin. Collagen, directly beneath the epidermis, gives the skin firmness and helps keep it youthful looking. The laser helps stimulate collagen regrowth.
Patients may pinpoint a specific area for treatment such as around their eyes or mouth, or choose the full-face option for the most dramatic difference. The actual laser surgery time takes between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours and may be performed with topical and local anesthesia.
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 layer. By addressing the different problems of these very different skin layers, the two technologies work in a complementary way.
It addresses the deep skin and foundational layer
Ultherapy addresses mild to moderate loose or sagging skin on the face and neck. By reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, Ultherapy will lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes, and gives a more refreshed look overall. Ultherapy is also used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the neck and under the chin, addressing the “turkey gobbler” and “double chin” which many patients are trying to eliminate.
AND WHAT KIND OF RESULTS DO YOU GET?
Some people who have a fair amount of laxity may benefit from more than one treatment, but that can be discussed during your consult. Of course, the natural aging process will continue, so you will eventually lose the collagen and elastin created by the treatment. When this occurs, many patients retreat.
There are good clinical results based upon just one treatment.
Patients have noted some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. We recommend and provide scripts for anti-anxiety and pain medication for the procedure to keep you comfortable.
It depends on the amount of area treated. A full face takes about an hour. Smaller areas take less time.
