Ulthera with Fillers for Complete Facial Anti-Aging

Ulthera , most often called Ultherapy, is one of the newest and most effective non-surgical approaches to lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck and decolletage using ultrasound technology. Combining Ulthera with fillers such as Restylane and Belotero can produce an even more profound effect. Clinical studies show that combining Ulthera and fillers can dramatically improve the appearance of the face, making it fuller, firmer, smoother and younger.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy is performed with a small ultrasound device that penetrates the tissue beneath the skin. The device allows medically licensed aesthetic treatment providers to control the depth of the ultrasound application and to target precise areas for treatment.

An image of the tissue beneath the skin is visible on a screen, and low levels of heat energy are applied to selected areas. Ulthera only affects the deeper skin tissues; it does not negatively impact the surface areas of the skin.

When the ultrasound heat energy is applied, the skin contracts and the heat energy triggers the production of collagen. Over time, this newly produced collagen grows and begins to firm, tone, lift and tighten the surface skin on the face and neck. The result is a natural lift in the skin's appearance.

What Results can I Expect from an Ultherapy Session?

Some patients are able to see immediate results after an Ultherapy treatment. However, maximum effects are usually achieved gradually over a period of two or three months. Clinical trials indicate that changes in the appearance of the skin after Ultherapy are significant and that most patients require only one Ultherapy treatment to achieve maximum results.

What's Involved in an Ultherapy Treatment?

Ultrasound treatments have been used safely for almost 50 years, and Ultherapy for nonsurgical face lifts received FDA approval in 2006. Ultherapy requires no downtime, and when the procedure is completed, you can resume normal activities immediately. Some patients might experience a slight swelling, redness and puffiness for a few hours after treatment.

Benefits of Combining Ulthera with Fillers

Combining Ultherapy with Radiesse or other facial fillers can enhance the effectiveness of both treatments. However, when combining Ultherapy with fillers like Sculptra Aesthetic, it's best to receive Ultherapy first and fillers afterward, as the ultrasound waves can break down the previously injected fillers. Most Beverly Hills medical spa patients receive dermal filler injections to augment Ultherapy treatments immediately or soon after completing the Ultherapy treatment. Fillers like Juvederm, Juvederm Voluma, and Restylane Lyft can all be combined with Ultherapy to achieve the maximum anti-aging effect.

Studies indicate that these fillers can stimulate additional collagen production when combined with Ultherapy to produce a synergistic effect. Taken together, a combined treatment of Ulthera with fillers is an effective and noninvasive alternative to traditional face lifts, neck lifts and eye lifts.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
