As we age, our skin starts to lose collagen and elastin which contributes to loose skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. And although there are surgical options to help correct these concerns, here at Richard D’Amico & Dr. Ferrauiola’s office, we offer a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t require any surgery or downtime at all: Ultherapy.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA cleared, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound technology to help tighten the skin without any surgery or downtime. This treatment harnesses focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
By harnessing ultrasound technology, Ultherapy stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy into the deep layers of the skin-leaving patients with real results that aren’t attainable with other non-invasive procedures like laser or radiofrequency.
Ultherapy Treatment Highlights
- One procedure
- No downtime
- Natural results
What Areas Does Ulthera Treat?
Ultherapy’s ultrasound energy initiates the body’s natural response to lift, tighten & stimulate the growth of fresh new collagen. This skin tightening treatment can treat the eyes, face, and neck. This treatment is also FDA cleared to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Is The Ultherapy Procedure Painful?
Just like with most procedures, comfort levels from Ultherapy vary from person to person. However, most patients only experience a slight tingling sensation as energy is being delivered to the targeted areas which only lasts as long as the treatment.
Does Ultherapy Require Anesthesia?
No, there is no anesthesia required for this procedure.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2-3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting & tightening skin on the face and neck and smoothing skin on the chest. While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s an exciting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery – and for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How Long Do Results Last After Ultherapy Treatment?
Results vary from patient to patient and will last based on your body’s natural aging process. Because the treatment itself produces new collagen on the inside, your results will be based on how long it takes your body to start showing visible signs of aging and collagen reduction again.
How Long is Ulthera Recovery?
Unlike surgical procedures, Ultherapy does not require a lengthy recovery period. Any post procedure concerns will resolve themselves within a two week period.

How Does Ultherapy Compare to Surgical Procedures?
One of the things that makes Ultherapy so unique is that it doesn’t require any recovery or downtime. While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, it’s an exciting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery, and for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Can I Combine Ultherapy With Other Procedures?
Yes, in most instances, you may choose to combine Ultherapy with other procedures. During your initial consultation with Dr. Richard D’Amico & Dr. Ferrauiola, he will go over all of your treatment options.
