Ultherapy Frequently Asked Questions:
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow, and improving lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. 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.
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with some degree of skin laxity. Loose skin on the and/or under the chin, or lines and wrinkles on the chest, are signals you might be a candidate. Typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many people who want some facial lifting but are not ready for surgery, whether mentally, physically or financially. There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game,” as well as clients wanting an aesthetic maintenance option.
Though some clients see an initial effect right after their treatment, 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. Look at our before and after pictures below to get a further idea of results from Ultherapy.
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.
Depending on the area(s) treated, a procedure can last anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours. We can give you an exact time for your procedure after you have been evaluated at a complimentary consultation.
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, stimulating the collagen-building process. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. Evolutions also offers both topical numbing cream and oral medication to help you relax during the procedure for no additional charge. Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible throughout the process. You should be able to go back to work the day after treatment. After the procedure, there may be a slight redness that typically resolves within a few hours. Some clients may have slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch. These reactions are typically mild and temporary in nature.
The majority of clients only need one treatment and are very happy with the results of doing the procedure once. Some clients may benefit from more than one treatment, depending on how much skin laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process. At Evolutions, if you decide to do a second treatment of the same area within a year of the initial procedure, you are eligible for a 40% discount on the second treatment.
Since the procedure stimulates a person’s own collagen production, how long the results last will depend on the individual. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but the individual’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Future touch-up treatments can help provide more control over the aging process, which varies by individual.
Yes. In addition to being FDA approved, Ultherapy treatments are currently being performed in more the 60 countries around the world. To date, over 1 million treatments have been performed globally.

Yes! Evolutions is pleased to offer an exclusive “Ultherapy Plus” package, which combines an Ultherapy treatment with two Total Tightening treatments. Both treatments work in different levels of the skin and offer an overall improved result.

Superior clinician training. For any procedure, the skill of the clinician performing the procedure is critical. A number of factors need to be considered in preparation to treat a client, including skin type, medical history, medications used, etc. Additionally, Ultherapy treatments use imaging technology to allow the clinician to see the area under the skin immediately before it is treated. This allows them to most effectively target the appropriate depth with the device to achieve the best results possible. At Evolutions, all clinicians are personally and extensively trained by Dr. Perkins on all areas of aesthetic medicine, including laser physics, skin anatomy, and practical application of skin tightening technology. Furthermore, all clinicians performing Ultherapy have received intensive training on the device itself so they can safely maximize the results of the procedure. Lastly, only Evolutions offers an Ultherapy Plus package that combines Ultherapy and Total Tightening for the best possible non-invasive, no downtime skin tightening.
