Ultherapy: The only FDA approved skin tightening procedure hits its stride

Often called the lunchtime lift, Ultherapy has been heralded as the most effective non-surgical, non-invasive procedure with results that are similar to an actual facelift. Dr. Roger H. Stewart, a board-certified dermatologist and founder of Fort Lauderdale’s Skin Center, sat down to talk about this new treatment.

“Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved skin tightening procedure,” notes Dr. Stewart.

The non-surgical therapy harnesses the power of the body’s natural healing process through ultrasound. With safe-tested levels of ultrasound energy the deepest skin layers are stimulated and collagen growth is encouraged.

“This is an ideal treatment for someone who is not ready, or doesn’t quite need surgery. Ultherapy can address loose skin on the brow, neck and under the chin,” says Dr. Stewart.



Because Ultherapy can effectively lift and tighten the tissues in the face and neck using ultrasound energy it is both affordable and time-efficient. Add to that the lack of bruising, bleeding or downtime and it is easy to see how Ultherapy has earned the nickname “The Lunchtime Lift.” The procedure takes between 30 to 60 minutes in the doctor’s office, and has virtually no recovery time.

“Results are evident immediately, and they gradually get better with time,” says Dr. Stewart.

This is also a reason that the lift is getting so much media coverage recently as well, from magazines and beauty articles, to talk shows like The View, Ultherapy is the media’s darling when it comes to non-invasive and effective anti-aging treatments.
