We are proud to offer to our clients the latest state-of-the-art non-surgical, no down time, skin lifting and tightening procedure called Ulthera. For the first time ever, Ultherapy enables our practitioners to direct sound waves not only into the skin but deep under the skin to the same tissue treated in surgery. This gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Improvements include a sleeker, more defined jawline and tighter skin on the neck under the chin. Sagging skin on the cheeks can be tightened and lifted, which in turn can improve folds from the nose to mouth, folds from the mouth to jaw, and drooping corners of the mouth. Tightening of skin on the forehead can reduce the sagging skin on the eyelids and promote a more open, refreshed look in general. Overall improvements in skin texture and evenness of color -- as well as strengthening and adding more collagen "cushion" -- can be additional benefits.
Ultherapy Before and After (2645 KB)
Besides the visible effects of lifting and tightening, there is also an invisible result from Ultherapy with the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness. Ultherapy lifts, tightens, and tones loose skin to counteract the effects of time and gravity. One of the first effects of gravity is that the brows descend, and the eyes start to appear smaller. Ultherapy will lift the brow, which in turn reduces the excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes and gives a more refreshed appearance.
The beauty of Ultherapy is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body's own subtle healing response to gently, gradually-and reliably-restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Greenwich Ultherapy requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response.
Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take 2 - 3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen. There isn't a replacement for the dramatic effects of surgery, but Ultherapy offers a natural, 'no downtime' approach to noticeably improving lax skin.

Most Ulthera clients report an immediate improvement in overall appearance, but full results take 2-3 months as the collagen needs this time to fully develop. Some benefit from more than one treatment.
As with any non-invasive procedure, Ulthera results will not be as dramatic or as long-lasting as facial surgery. However, most clients report results lasting anywhere from 9-15 months.
With Ulthera, there’s no surgery, there’s no cutting, there’s no scar, there’s no down time. For those clients who want a true lunchtime procedure without recovery, ultherapy may be a good option.
