Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Monica


In today’s world of rapid cosmetic advancement, Ultherapy is a groundbreaking procedure to stimulate facial rejuvenation, giving patients a powerful alternative to invasive procedures such as a facelift or neck lift. Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound, targeting the deeper layers of tissue beneath the skin. With its focused application, it promotes direct tightening of these underlying tissues, resulting in a refreshed, youthful appearance. Further, the procedure produces zero downtime, allowing patients to move forward with their day as soon as they leave our office. With its many advantages and beautiful results, Ultherapy in Santa Monica may be just the treatment you’re looking for.

Benefits of Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a noninvasive, nonsurgical, no-downtime system that uses ultrasound to stimulate skin tightening and lifting using the body’s natural healing process. Ultherapy can be used on the eyebrows, neck, cheeks and under the chin. By targeting the deep, underlying facial tissues, Ultherapy produces incredible results while leaving the skin surface completely intact. Patients experience minimal discomfort and can immediately resume their daily activities after receiving Ultherapy.

Ultherapy takes 60-90 minutes in our office. Immediately following the procedure, most patients notice a sudden boost in their facial appearance. Then, over time, the single Ultherapy treatment will cause your body to continue the production of collagen and elastin, causing your skin to look tighter, younger and more beautiful. While the results of Ultherapy are less dramatic than surgical results, it still provides an effective alternative for patients not ready to undergo surgery.

  • The benefits of Ultherapy include:
  • Tightens the eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, jawline and neck
  • Nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure
