Ultherapy® is a new type of non-surgical procedure for the face that stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to lift the skin over time.  This is achieved using FDA-approved ultrasound technology, which enables physicians to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.  In fact, there is no “down time” with this procedure and most patients return to their normal activities the same day.  It is an ideal cosmetic procedure for those looking for a natural, yet noticeable result.  The treatment typically takes 30-90 minutes.

With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over a course of 2-3 months as new, stronger collagen is created.  Further improvements can even appear up to six months following the procedure, as this collagen-building process continues.  Why bother with the downtime, expense and pain involved with a facelift when you can achieve nearly the same results with Ultherapy with no downtime.

Tens of thousands of Ultherapy treatments have been provided worldwide, and Lee’s Summit Dermatology Associates is pleased to be at the forefront in the U.S. of this clinical advance.  We are proud to be one of the first in the Midwest to offer this new exciting non-surgical facelift alternative.
