Ultherapy

The non-invasive lift

Ultherapy: lift and tighten skin as if by magic!

While Botox and fillers have proven themselves effective for age reversal for the face, what about below your jawline? Not only do our necks have thinner and weaker skin, we also tend to omit caring for them.

We forget to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize below our jawline daily. Have you been searching for the perfect treatment for the neck and décolletage? After years of research, hard work, and trials of every injection, laser, and product out there, there has been nothing truly effective… until now!

The only FDA approved laser treatment that lifts and tightens the neck, chin, and brow.

Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound and focused pulsing heat energy to lift and transform the brow, chin, neck, and chest by kick-starting collagen production in the skin.

Ultrasound has been used throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and ultherapy has been established as effective in clinical studies* and in over a million treatments worldwide. Other benefits of Ultherapy include:

  • FDA cleared: the only laser treatment approved by the FDA that lifts and tightens the neck, chin, and brow, while improving lines and wrinkles on the chest.
  • Non-surgical (no incisions): uses focused ultrasound energy combined with the right  temperature to support collagen regeneration.
  • No downtime: no restrictions on your return to activities, skin may appear flushed but returns to normal within a few hours.

Natural. Non-Invasive. No Downtime.

Ultherapy is the new “Gold Standard” and while it cannot deliver facelift results it is as close as you can get to a facelift without surgery.

Why Choose Us?

External Affairs Medical Spas are one of the only locations in the Edmonton and surrounding areas to provide Ultherapy.

We are passionate about combination therapy and we know that this method is guaranteed to give you the best possible results. We’ll be combining Ultherapy treatments with Radiesse and V2 Hydralift.

What To Expect

During your first visit to External Affairs you will have a consultation to ensure you are a candidate. During your consultation you will fill out a medical profile listing any health issues or concerns. If you are a candidate, our registered nurse and clinical team will perform a treatment consultation with you.

During the consultation, they will listen to your concerns, and work within your budget to provide you with a detailed treatment plan and explanation of how Ultherapy will work.

All patients receiving Ultherapy receive one free syringe of Radiesse to the jawline or a V2 Hydralift procedure using Redensity 1 to the neck. We know that combination therapy offers the best result for the patient. During your treatment, after we cleanse the skin and identify the specific treatment area, we will determine the optimal placement of the treatment energy.

Our technician will begin to deliver focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface. The collagen-building process is initiated, once the energy is deposited into the skin at precise depths.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still not sure? Read our FAQ’s below.

How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures?

Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin.

The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes only about an hour for most patients, and there is no downtime.

It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.

Does it hurt?

A recent software upgrade called “Ultherapy Amplify” now affords a more comfortable procedure. While comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, most patients now report that the procedure is quite tolerable. If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.

This sensation is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible and patients tell us they leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.

How long does it last?

Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.

Are there any side effects?

There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

Is Ultherapy safe?

The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 350,000 treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
