What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a unique, ultrasound based non-invasive treatment to enhance facial profile and body contour. It provides all the inherent advantages of a non-surgical procedure for patients who may not be very keen to undergo an elective surgery for cosmetic enhancement. The FDA has approved Ultherapy for skin tightening and it is effectively used to lift and tighten face and neck and even other areas. Since the procedure is non-surgical, it involves minimal downtime and there are no risks of complications, pain or discomfort that are typically associated with a surgery. The entire procedure can be completed in less than hour, depending on the extent of area to be treated. Treatment does not involve anesthesia, which is another benefit for patients may be reluctant to choose invasive procedures involving general anesthesia. Patients in Newport Beach, CA and surrounding areas may visit Dr. Seify’s office to learn all about Ultherapy.


Ultherapy is performed quite like any other procedure involving ultrasound technique. A smooth applicator is placed over the patient’s skin in the target area that needs to be treated. Ultrasound energy is focused on the area to heat up the excess deposits of fat tissue in the underlying layers of the skin. The energy tends to stimulate natural production of fresh collagen to promote skin tightening. This process firms up skin from inside out in a natural way, without having any adverse impact on the outer skin. The unique thing about Ultherapy technique is that among all the non-surgical procedures used to improve cosmetic appearance, it is the only treatment that uses ultrasound energy. Ultrasound technology enables the doctor to see the underlying tissue and target fat deposits precisely to achieve maximum results with minimum impact.


Ultherapy offers several benefits for people who may not be willing or who may be unable to undergo plastic surgery treatment for skin tightening and facelift. Ultherapy is the only non-surgical, FDA approved procedure for skin tightening and facelift that makes use of body’s own natural healing process. It stimulates natural collagen in the body’s deep underlying tissue to actually tighten, lift and tone loose or sagging skin around the face and neck, including the eyebrows and chin. The treatment involves no downtime, no foreign substances, and no anesthesia. The results with Ultherapy can last for several years.
