Skin Tightening

What we tell our patients: One treatment lifts, firms, and tightens skin on the face, neck, chest, brows, or body. Ultherapy offers long-lasting results with no downtime.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical treatment to lift and restore skin. The treatment is commonly performed to lift the brows and cheeks, tighten skin on the neck and décolletage, and to smooth lip lines. Ultherapy is used off-label to tighten skin on the body. Ultherapy is offered in Petoskey, Traverse City, and Naples, FL by our experienced, highly trained Ultra Premiere Ultherapy Premiere providers.

“Ultherapy is my treatment of choice to maintain my collagen bank and firm up my skin.”

Does Ultherapy hurt?

If you’ve been thinking about Ultherapy but worried about the pain, you’ll be happy to know that Ultherapy treatments (and any treatment you’ve been worried about, for that matter) are much easier now that we offer ProNox, an in-office laughing gas. We can also prescribe a pain medication prior to the treatment. There is no pain after an Ultherapy treatment.

Is Ultherapy a laser?

Ultherapy or Ulthera® uses ultrasound technology to see below the surface of the skin, down to the area of the soft tissue. Then the provider directs ultrasound waves. The ultrasound stimulates your body’s own collagen production and over several months, results in a face and brow that is visibly lifted. An Ultherapy treatment takes 1-3 hours depending on number of areas treated. There is no downtime after treatment.

How Ultherapy Works


How we make it more comfortable

If you’ve researched Ultherapy, you may have read or heard it’s uncomfortable. We used to prescribe painkillers to take during treatment, but with our in-office laughing gas (Pronox) and more advanced techniques, medication is no longer necessary! Ultherapy is easily tolerated.


45 to 90-minute procedure

Treatments take 45-90 minutes to complete. Rectangular boxes are drawn on the skin, and a precise number of pulses are performed in each rectangular box. The following day you can return to daily activities or work. Most patients experience some soreness (and occasional bruising) in the treated areas.


Collagen stimulation over time

Many patients see a tightening “boost” immediately and the best results are at 3-6 months when the skin-firming collagen stimulation is complete. Results are proven to last well over a year since new, healthy collagen has been established.

Utilizing ultrasound energy along with your body’s own natural healing process, Ultherapy focuses energy into the deep support layers of your skin, which respond instantly by contracting (shrinking) the tissue, then firming and smoothing over time.
