What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a type of cosmetic dermatology that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten loose skin on the face, neck and under the chin. Forced ultrasound energy helps grow new collagen over time – smoothing skin as the body regenerates naturally and painlessly. This new and innovative procedure is available right here in Grosse Pointe, Michigan.

Proven Safe

Just like a surgical facelift, Ultherapy stimulates the deepest layers of the skin’s support structure to give skin a firmer and smoother base. However, unlike facelift surgery, Ultherapy is a non-invasive process. This means that instead of working against your body’s healing process, it works with your body to firm up skin in these common trouble areas. This is why people say “it’s an Uplift, not a Facelift!”

Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin around your eyebrows, neck and under chin areas. Ultrasound energy has been proven safe over the course of many years for a wide variety of applications, and now you can put it to work for the appearance of your skin!

Natural Approach

No one wants to undergo surgery if they do not have to, which is why the Ultherapy approach was developed to be a non-surgical facelift alternative. Skipping the surgery means no downtime as you recover, no risk of complications from foreign substances entering your body and no radical change to your appearance. To everyone around you, you will just look like you are naturally starting to look younger and more vibrant.


UltherapyAll Ultherapy sessions use the same type of hand-held piece that would be used on an expectant mother to provide images of her baby during an ultrasound. However, this not only allows the doctor to see under the layers of your skin, but also to direct ultrasound bursts to exactly the right depth to stimulate your body’s response to grow new collagen. Small forced bursts allow doctors to aim the energy toward hard-to-target areas and produce naturally firmer skin.
