Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive skin tightening procedure. It uses high-focused, intense ultrasound energy to tighten and lift skin by gently heating the tissue and stimulating the body’s collagen-building process. Ultherapy lifts and tightens the skin on the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Di-Or Skin & Rejuvenation Clinic is a registered distributor / stockist / clinic providing Ultherapy using genuine Ulthera products and equipment.
A Non-invasive Procedure That Lifts and Tightens your Skin
Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and
tightens the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Scientifically Shown to Stimulate Collagen Production
MINI FACE LIFT- ULTHERAPY® (HIFU)
ULTHERAPY® ULTRASOUND SKIN TIGHTENING
Harnessing the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, cheek, chin, neck and chest.
Focused Ultrasound. No Surgery
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as effective in clinical studies and in over a million treatments worldwide.
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
The Ultherapy® treatment lifts the skin all over your face and neck, under the chin and on the brow and improve lines and wrinkles on the decollete. Safe and highly effective in that it stimulates the deep structural support layers of the skin and stimulates the creation of new collagen. Traditionally only plastic surgery could address the deep layers of your skin but with ultrasound technology this is possible with Ultherapy®.

- Ultrasound Therapy
As we age the collagen in our body starts to deplete. Collagen is a hard, insoluble, and fibrous protein that makes up one-third of the protein in the human body. In the dermis, or the middle layer of our skin, collagen helps to form a fibrous network of cells called fibroblasts, upon which new cells can grow. As this natural protein loses its ability to hold firm against gravity the skin begins to sag or pulls down.
Ultherapy® reverses this process by stimulating the creation of new collagen. So, whether you’re in your 30s 40s 50s or are more mature the collagen in your skin has begun its process of depletion. This can be detected in skin that is less firm, lowered eyebrow, sagging skin and general skin laxity.
Most experience an initial lifting effect following the procedure but real results appear over 2-3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting and tightening kin on the face, neck and chest.
How Ultherapy Works
Builds New Collagen
The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
No Toxins or Needles
Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
Ultherapy stimulates collagen growth in the skin tissue at three different layers
No Downtime. Natural Results.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Ultherapy delivers measurable results over time. Results may vary for each individual.
Just a Single Treatment
Just one non-invasive Ultherapy® treatment helps counteract the effects of gravity and sun exposure without downtime.
Before Your Treatment
Schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our Di-Or Clinic’s Skin Therapist. During this session, she will address your concerns, assess your skin and determine if you are a candidate for the treatment.
Once you book your Ultherapy® procedure, you won’t need to follow any special preparations or skincare regimens in advance of the treatment.
To enhance your comfort, your Skin Therapist may recommend that you take an over-the-counter or prescribed medication before the treatment.
Your Skin Therapist will help you feel comfortable during your treatment
During Your Treatment
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, your Ultherapy practitioner will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. She will then use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to first see deep within the skin to determine optimal placement of the treatment energy, and then deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface.
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
After Your Treatment
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
Is Ultherapy® for Me?
There are a number of benefits in having an Ultherapy®. If you’re a younger person you might simply want to retain your youthfulness for as long as you can and keep the collagen supply rejuvenated. As a more mature person this will give you the collagen boost your skin needs to help reduce and eliminate the sagging effects that have already started.
Ultherapy® is a welcoming alternative option to surgery as this technique has proven to be highly successful. Ultherapy® is perfect if you prefer a non-invasive treatment with no downtime and no cuts or scarring. It is also beneficial to those wanting to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Considerations & Risks
If you had dermal fillers in the last (weeks/months???) or facial implants in the last (weeks/months???) you should not have this procedure. The timing of this procedure with other treatments is critical for optimal results.
As this treatment is non-surgical there are minimal risks. There have been no serious adverse events observed during the clinical study evaluation of the Ulthera® System. Ultrasound energy has been used in the medical field for more than 50 years. In addition, every Ultherapy® practitioner receives extensive procedural training and tools, so you can feel confident in choosing Ultherapy® in conjunction with your treating physician. You may experience some redness for a few hours following the procedure. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days, or tingling/tenderness to the touch for a few weeks after the procedure, but these are usually mild and temporary in nature. There is the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, such as temporary small areas of bruising or numbness, which your physician will review with you. If symptoms persist see your doctor/healthcare professional.
