What Is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy®, or Ulthera®, is an award-winning High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) technology. It is the GOLD STANDARD treatment in non-surgical skin tightening and facelift. It is the ONLY FDA approved, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that tightens and lifts the skin and reduces lines and wrinkles in one treatment session with results last for years. Ultherapy® does not require any downtime as seen in traditional surgical facelifts, and you can return to your normal routine right after the treatment. It does not require any no local anaesthetic either and does not involve any cutting or injection into the skin.


How Does Ultherapy® Skin Tightening & Facelift Work?

Collagen is a natural protein in the skin. As we age, our collagen breaks down resulting in a loss of strength and elasticity in the skin. Ultherapy® uses focused, precise ultrasound energy to target the deep structural layers of the skin without disrupting the skin’s surface. The innovative ultrasound technology from Ultherapy® delivers ultrasound energy at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration while strengthening the existing collagen. The increase in collagen results in lifted face, tighter and firmer skin with fewer wrinkles.

Where Can Ultherapy® Be Used?

Ultherapy® can be used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, and chest, without the need for surgery.

Why Ultherapy®?

We provide 10+ skin tightening and face lift treatments in Waterloo Kitchener area. Ultherapy is our top choice, which can lift your face in only one treatment with results last for years.

At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa, we provide over 10 different non-surgical skin tightening procedures. Based on the treatment results, number of treatment sessions, real client feedback, and satisfaction rate, Utherapy® is the No.1 option among all those procedures. In general, Utherapy® has the following advantages:

  • Safety – Utherapy® is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure, so it is much safer compared to the traditional surgical facelift procedure.
  • Proven Effectiveness – Utherapy® is the ONLY FDA and Health Canada approved non-surgical procedure to tighten and lift the skin. The effectiveness of Utherapy® is also proven by many scientific trails and clinical studies. 
  • Fewer Treatment Sessions – Utherapy® only require ONE session to significantly tighten and lift the skin, compared to other main-stream non-surgical skin tightening technologies, e.g. laser and radio-frequency, that typically require multiple treatment sessions such as radio-frequency based technology TempSure® and Fractora®.
  • Long Lasting Results – the results of Utherapy® last for up to 2 years!
  • Natural looking results – Utherapy® relies on your body’s own collagen building process and boosts natural production of collagen and elastin for natural looking results. 
  • SMAS LiftingThis is what really sets Utherapy® apart from other technologies. Regarding the skin tightening treatments, the equally well known radio-frequency based technology Thermage® can achieve similar results in single treatment session. However, for people at the age of 30 with older skin who wants to lift their face, Thermage® is incapable of limited by the treatment depth of radio-frequency technology. Whereas, Utherapy® comes with 3 transducers targeting different depth of the skin for different usage cases: the 1.5mm transducer targeting Superficial Dermis and the 3mm transducer targeting Deep Dermis both for skin tightening; the 4.5 mm transducer targeting SMAS/Platysma for facelift that radio-frequency based technology like Thermage® and TempSure® cannot reach. Sub-Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) is a thin yet strong layer covers and connects the muscles and structures of the face and the neck together as a continuous fibromuscular tissues that are responsible for facial expression. As the most important supporting structure for the face, SMAS creates and maintains the shape of the face. It loosens and descends as we age and traditionally can only be addressed in facelift surgery. Utherapy® is the only FDA cleared and clinical approved non-surgical procedure yet for SMAS lifting due to its effective treatment depth to that skin layer.

The SMAS lifting capability is what made Utherapy® to be the gold standard for non-surgical skin tightening and facelift. It was the main reason for us to choose and offer Utherapy® instead of Thermage® in Kitchener Waterloo area.

Ultherapy is the only FDA approved non-surgical procedure for SMAS lifting. We are the only Ultherapy authorized provider in the city of Waterloo as of this written. Contact us today for your skin tightening or facelift needs.

You may feel the the prickling heat more intense in certain areas where the face skin is thinner and more sensitive. The level of discomfort can be significantly reduced if the Ultherapy® treatment is done by a highly trained and experienced technician who understands the anatomy and the machine. At Sunshine Cosmetic Clinic & Medi Spa, we have been performing Ultherapy® since 2017 with hundreds of happy patients.

How To Better Maintain The Results Of Ultherapy®?

The results of Ultherapy® generally last up to 2 years. However, we suggest this procedure to be done annually to maintain the full results. Another way to maintain or even boost Ultherapy® treatment results is to use highly potent skincare products such as medical-grade skincare. Properly selected medical-grade skincare products from our medical team can assist to stimulate collagen formation through direct action with growth factors or through exfoliation to resurface the skin. As a results, these kind of skincare will help to maximize and maintain the results you obtained from the Ultherapy® treatment. Therefore, we highly recommend that you add the following hand-picked medical-grade skincare products to your daily skin care regimen: 

  • Vitamin C serum in the morning – ZO Skin Health® 10% Vitamin C Self-activating serum or SkinCeuticals® C E Ferulic® serum
  • Retinol at night (use 2 days after the Ultherapy® treatment) – ZO Skin Health® Retinol Skin Brightener .25% or Wrinkle + Texture cream (0.5% retinol)
  • Anti-aging serum at night – SkinMedica® TNS® Advanced+ Serum or SkinCeuticals® Resveratrol B E Serum

Ultherapy® is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure and is very safe if operated by a qualified professional. For you safety, make sure to do your research and find an authorized Ultherapy® provider

No. There are no downtime required for Ultherapy® treatments. Some temporary, mild redness might occur after the treatment is performed, which will go away in a couple of hours. Very rarely, some patients may experience visible mild swelling, which typically resolve itself in 24 hours.
It depends on area(s) to be treated. For smaller areas such as the brows, an Ultherapy® treatment takes about 30 minutes. For larger areas such as the entire face and neck, it may take 90 minutes.
You will notice the skin tightening and lifting results immediately after the Ultherapy® treatment. The most dramatic improvements may become visible within 2-3 months after the treatment, because it takes time for the collagen to produce naturally. The results continue developing for up to 6 months when at the peak.
The results generally last for up to 2 years depending on your lifestyle, sun exposure, etc., which may vary from person to person. We recommend patients have Ultherapy® treatments once a year to maintain the full results.

Ultherapy® Pre Treatment Instructions:

  • Avoid using Retinol, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid for 3 days prior to the treatment
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for 3 days prior to the treatment
  • Avoid Botox at least 1 week prior to the treatment
  • Avoid dermal fillers at least 4 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Shave the treatment area(s) if necessary before the treatment
  • Do not apply any skincare or cosmetic products prior to the treatment.
  • No jewelry, earrings, necklace, etc. on the treatment day
  • For discomfort management, you can take 1000mg Tylenol Extra Strength 1 hour prior to the treatment

Ultherapy® Post Treatment Instructions:

  • Avoid taking any Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Celebrex, Aspirin, etc. for 1 month, as they may lead to suboptimal results. The inflammatory response in your tissue from Ultherapy® works in a positive way to stimulate collagen production and remodelling. You may take Tylenol Extra Strength if needed. You may also apply aloe vera gel if you experience discomfort after the treatment. 
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 2 days after the treatment
  • Avoid excessive sweating and heat like saunas and hot tubs
  • Avoid using exfoliators, Retinol, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid for 2 days after the treatment
  • Use sunscreen (SPF 30 or greater) – we strong recommend the Broad Spectrum Sunscreen (SPF 50) from ZO Skin Health®, which is specifically designed for post-procedure skin
  • To boost the Ultherapy® results, we recommend at least adding the following medical-grade skincare products to your daily skin care regimen:  1) Vitamin C serum in the morning – C E Ferulic® serum from SkinCeuticals® or 10% Vitamin C Self-activating serum from ZO Skin Health®; 2) Retinol at night (use 2 days after the treatment) – Retinol Skin Brightener .25% from ZO Skin Health® or Wrinkle + Texture cream (0.5% retinol) from ZO Skin Health®; 3) Anti-aging serum at night – TNS® Advanced+ Serum from SkinMedica® or Resveratrol B E Serum from SkinCeuticals®
