Ultherapy is a non-invasive, minimal-downtime, ultrasound treatment that helps to improve mild skin laxity. In Beverly Hills, Ultherapy is performed by board-certified dermatologist and specialist in non-surgical facial and body sculpting, Dr. Jason Emer. Dr. Emer uses Ultherapy along with energy-based technologies and various skin rejuvenation techniques to slow and prevent signs of aging.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved skin tightening and lifting procedure that delivers high-intensity focused ultrasound energy (HIFU) to a targeted area to address skin laxity. The HIFU energy is transmitted to precise depths (and at precise temperatures) under the skin.
Ultherapy’s focused heat does not damage or disrupt the outer layer of skin but goes beneath it to cause micro-injuries at the deep tissue level. The body responds to the HIFU energy by initiating collagen production.
Collagen stimulation is key to restoring healthy, youthful skin. As we age, collagen production gradually decreases, which causes our skin to lose elasticity and strength. Skin laxity is one of the first noticeable signs of aging on our faces and bodies.
Often, our cheeks, jawline, jowls, and neck are first to be affected by sagging or loose skin. Then, we start to see the same changes in the skin around our knees and elbows.
Many of Dr. Emer’s patients seek his expertise in cosmetic dermatology in order to combat these unwanted changes and restore a more youthful look. Dr. Emer often includes Ultherapy in his patients’ customized anti-aging protocols, as its long-term collagen stimulating effect helps to rebuild and maintain healthy, robust skin.

Am I a Good Candidate for ULTHERAPY?
What Can ultherapy treat?
Ultherapy is a versatile and effective skin tightening method, which is why Dr. Emer so frequently incorporates Ultherapy into both facial and body sculpting treatment plans. Ultherapy can improve skin quality in many areas of the body, including the:
- Face (eyes, eyebrows, cheeks, around the mouth, and mouth corners)
- Jawline and jowls
- Legs, knees, and thighs
Dr. Emer begins the Ultherapy procedure by cleansing the treatment area and applying a cool ultrasound gel. He will then place the Ultherapy applicator against your skin and strategically direct the HIFU energy at the targeted areas.
Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging allows Dr. Emer to see deep within the skin, giving him a clear picture of where the HIFU energy is being delivered and where it is needed. Patients often experience tingling and warmth during the procedure as the HIFU energy stimulates collagen production under the skin.
The length of your procedure will depend on the treatment area. On average, Ultherapy takes between 30-90 minutes.
What to Expect After Ultherapy
You can return to your normal activities immediately after your Ultherapy session. Some patients experience temporary redness or tenderness at the treatment site following the procedure, but these symptoms typically dissipate within a few hours.
Although the ultrasound energy starts working beneath your skin the moment it is delivered, expect to see gradual improvements in skin tightening and lifting over two to three months as collagen production increases. Improvements from Ultherapy can last up to a year or more.
How Often Can I Get Ultherapy?
Ultherapy results depend on your body’s collagen production and natural aging process. Due to Dr. Emer’s expertise in combining complementary treatments, many of his patients only require one Ultherapy session to achieve their facial or body sculpting goals.
If your goals involve accelerated skin tightening, Dr. Emer may advise up to four sessions per year for enhanced collagen production. Maintenance treatments of once or twice per year may be recommended as part of a preventative anti-aging protocol.
