What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology to tighten and lift sagging skin and restore a healthy glow on the face, neck and décolletage. In addition, this treatment also improves the look of fine lines and deep wrinkles, making it an excellent option for individuals who want to achieve a rejuvenated and youthful appearance, without the risks and downtime associated with invasive surgery.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy sends high-frequency sound waves to stimulate cells deep beneath the skin’s surface layers, promoting collagen production and tightening the underlying muscles. Over time, this results in skin that is healthy, vibrant and lifted.


Because Ultherapy works by naturally replenishing the body’s collagen, you can expect to see the full results of your procedure within three to six months.

At that time, sagging skin in the treatment area will be lifted and volumized, and you’ll experience a renewed glow throughout your face. In addition, fine lines and deep wrinkles will be dramatically improved, restoring a smooth and youthful overall appearance.

The longevity of your results will vary depending on how much collagen your body produces, as well as your age, diet and congenital factors. However, the vast majority of our clients still see noticeable results two years after their initial procedure and continue to undergo follow-up treatments to maintain their new, youthful appearance. At Marcus Medical, we are committed to your long-term satisfaction, and will help you track your unique results and determine when you should return for your maintenance appointments.

What to Expect During the Ultherapy Procedure

During your Los Angeles Ultherapy procedure at Marcus Medical, we will begin by applying a lubricating gel to your skin, before passing the ultrasound wand over the areas where your skin and muscles could use a lift. You can expect your entire 20 to 40 minute procedure to be virtually pain-free, with most clients only reporting very minimal and short-lasting discomfort.

However, if you have a low threshold for pain, you may be advised to take over-the-counter pain medication prior to your treatment to ensure your comfort. Because Ultherapy is completely non-invasive, there is virtually no downtime associated with the procedure and you will be able to resume your normal activities immediately.

Are There Any Side Effects?

As the Palomar Vectus laser was designed with client comfort in mind, side effects from laser hair removal at Marcus Medical Spa are extremely mild.

At most, you may experience minor redness, swelling and a sunburn sensation in the treatment area, all of which will subside gradually within 24 hours.
