Ultherapy Focused Ultrasound treatment is a revolutionary new way to tighten certain areas of skin. Using guided ultrasound placement, skin tightening at various skin levels can be accomplished. Dr. David Goldberg and his staff are at the forefront in evaluating the use of focused ultrasound for facial skin tightening, cellulite treatment and fat removal.
Ultherapy treatment - performed at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists
The Ulthera System is the first of its kind that enables physicians to see deep into the structures of the skin to deliver ultrasound energy that give a lift without surgery. Never before have doctors been able to deliver energy AND see exactly where it is going. If you are experiencing drooping skin around your eyes, neck or jaw line but are hesitant to get a traditional facelift, Ultherapy may be a great choice for you! The Ulthera treatment is a non-surgical solution that produces the tight, toned skin you are looking for.
Ultherapy is ideal for patients who are experiencing:
Loose, lax skin around the neck or eyes
Flattening of the mid cheek
Folds around the mouth (nasolabial area)
"Marionette" lines on the chin
A downturned mouth
How Does Ultherapy work?
The doctor or nurse places the Ulthera applicator to your face. This applicator allows them to actually see the tissue and skin beneath. You and your doctor will be able to see an image of the tissue below the surface as you do on other sonograms. Using the same hand piece, heat energy is delivered below the skin's surface without harm. At first, your skin will contract right away. Over time, the body's response stimulates collagen growth. This collagen growth ultimately creates a gradual tightening, resulting in a natural lift.
The difference between the Ulthera System and other non-surgical tightening techniques is the ultrasound imaging. Your doctor's ability to see below the skin and treat with accuracy ensures a safe and effective outcome.
Focused ultrasound energy is delivered non-invasively into the skin's support structures.
Over time, weak collagen is reorganized and supplemented with new collagen growth to contract and lift the skin.
One treatment will stimulate collagen growth over two to three months. Over this time period you will see the skin tighten and lift. FDA trials showed that nine out of ten patients had a noticeable, significant lift.

Dr. Goldberg is a wonderful doctor. I am pleased with the results and my mom even wants to come in to have a procedure done. He is professional and sweet. The staff is wonderfully attentive and kind. I tell all my friends about him.
