Non- Surgical Skin Lifting and Tightening
Ultherapy is a new device that is for nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the bodies all natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, face, neck, chest and under the chin. The only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these hard to treat areas, Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin-including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift-without disturbing the surface of the skin, with no down-time!

Ultherapy Frequently Asked Questions!
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
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 (depending on treatment areas), 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?
Dr. Silkey takes great pride in offering a "no to minimal discomfort" setting. We offer topical anesthesia and if desired, premedication.
Dr. Silkey underwent the full procedure without any medication. This was to get the full effect of how "painful" it could be. Dr. Silkey felt that while at times it was uncomfortable, this was limited to only certain zones.
In our hands, the whole procedure can easily be tailored to your specific pain tolerance and pain medication can be given if desired.
We take every measure to make the experience as pleasant as possible, and patients tell us they leave comfortable and very 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.
How many treatments does it take?
The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process. SilkeySkinMD provides a free 3 month booster treatment for the areas treated. This is because Dr. Silkey believes in getting great results by optimizing the collagen deposition process.
