Soundwaves Not Surgery

Stopping time is an impossible task, but slowing down the aging process isn’t! Alongside a superb skincare routine, individuals now have access to state-of-the-art treatments that can enhance the contours of their faces and provide the smooth, tighter skin they’ve longed for. While Ultherapy may not provide the same level of dramatic results as surgical procedures like a facelift, it offers a safe and effective option for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity.

Ultherapy is FDA cleared for its remarkable capabilities to:

  • Lift sagging brows
  • Reduce lax submemtal (chin) skin
  • Tighten loose neck skin
  • Reduce jowling
  • Address sagging cheeks
  • Tighten wrinkled decolletage skin
  • Rejuvenate the skin overall

How Does Ultherapy Work?

When it comes to the face, Ultherapy targets multiple layers of the skin, including the cutaneous layers like the reticular dermis, as well as fibromuscular layers such as the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS). This comprehensive approach ensures that the treatment reaches deep into the underlying tissues, resulting in notable skin tightening effects. [1] 

In response to this exhilarating energy, your skin’s own alchemists, the fibroblasts, produce collagen—the essence of resilience and youth. Picture a symphony of renewal—a grand orchestration of cellular activity, manifesting in tighter, more supple skin!

With each passing day, collagen continues to be produced, improving the appearance of your skin and rolling back the clock. 


Bid farewell to the idea of surgery or incisions! Ultherapy embraces a non-invasive approach, sparing you from the hassle and downtime associated with traditional surgical procedures. This remarkable treatment has undergone rigorous testing and has proven to be safe and effective in addressing mild to moderate skin laxity without the need for any numbing agents.

Ultherapy kickstarts the production of collagen so once sagging, tired, and aged skin will look refreshed, tighter, and more youthful! 

Ultherapy’s ultrasound waves work their magic precisely where it’s needed most. Whether it’s the 

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage

this innovative treatment allows for tailored, targeted improvements.

Best of all, following your Ultherapy session, you can resume your daily activities without the need to press pause on your life. With proper care, the effects of Ultherapy can endure for months to a year or more making this the ideal treatment for anyone who wants to spend less time thinking about aging and more time looking incredible!

Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for Ultherapy are individuals who:

  • Have mild to moderate skin laxity, experiencing sagging or loose skin.
  • Desire to combat and improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin on the face, neck, or chest.
  • Approach the treatment with realistic expectations about the achievable outcomes.
  • Prefer non-invasive procedures over surgical options.
  • Are in good overall health, without any underlying medical conditions that may interfere.
  • Seek a trusted and effective solution for skin rejuvenation without significant downtime.

If the patient has recently had certain skin procedures or surgery in the same area, Ultherapy might need to wait. Patients with infections or a skin disease that could slow down healing are not good candidates for the treatment. Furthermore, people with acne or scars that form raised bumps might also be unable to have the treatment. If you have very loose skin or extra fat in the area being treated, our Nubo Spa staff will happily work with you to find another treatment option.


During this appointment, we’ll explore how Ulthera can help you achieve your desired results. Get ready for an informative session that will leave you feeling confident and well-informed about your treatment options.

  • First, we’ll take the time to get to know you and understand your specific skin concerns and goals. Feel free to share your thoughts, ask questions, and express any apprehensions you may have. Our expert team is here to listen and guide you every step of the way.
  • Next, we’ll conduct a thorough examination of your skin, paying close attention to the areas you wish to address. We may take photographs or use specialized imaging technology to provide a clear visual assessment of your skin’s current condition. Don’t worry, this is all part of the process to help us customize the best treatment plan for you.
  • Finally, we’ll discuss the benefits, potential results, and any necessary precautions or aftercare instructions. Our aim is to ensure that you have a comprehensive understanding of the treatment, so you can make an informed decision with confidence.

By the end of your consultation, you’ll have all the knowledge and guidance necessary to make the best decision for your skin. Get ready to take the first step towards a more vibrant and youthful you with Ulthera!


To ensure you’re getting the most out of the Ultherapy treatment, avoid:

  • Too much sun exposure
  • Topical ointments containing salicylic acid
  • Non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Hot showers and saunas

Prior to the procedure, a topical anesthetic ointment is applied to the face and neck areas to be treated, allowing it to take effect for 45 minutes. Patients wash their faces with a mild cleanser just before the procedure, and any metallic jewelry is removed from the facial area.


During the procedure, which will take from 30-90 minutes, markings are made on the mid face and neck regions for guidance. Ultrasound gel is applied to the skin, and the probe is placed firmly on the targeted skin surface, ensuring good contact. The ultrasound imaging functionality is used to confirm proper acoustic coupling to the skin tissue and the desired focal depth. [2] Your skin care specialist will apply the Ultheraphy transducers with a combination frequency and focal depth that will best target specific layers of the skin. The technician then moves the handpiece over the skin in a grid-like pattern, creating thermal zones to ensure the ares are completely covered.

During the treatment, you may experience mild discomfort as the heat penetrates your skin. The level of discomfort can vary from person to person and depends on the specific area being treated. If you find the discomfort bothersome, please let us know, and we can provide you with pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort you may experience. Your comfort and well-being are our top priorities, so please don’t hesitate to communicate your needs during the procedure.


After the treatment, patients are instructed to expect mild redness and swelling, which may persist for several days. We ask our patients to promptly contact us if any other effects or concerns arise. 

To support proper healing, patients are advised to avoid icing the treated areas and engaging in vigorous exercises for a period of 3 to 5 days. These precautions ensure optimal outcomes and provide patients with a smooth and comfortable recovery process.


Imagine the confidence and satisfaction you’ll feel as you witness the gradual and consistent enhancement of your skin’s tightness and smoothness. Ulthera is not just a quick fix; it’s a game-changing treatment that delivers visible and lasting results! Your skin will look like you only younger, fimer, and with fewer wrinkles and sagging.
