Frequently Asked Questions on Ultherapy®:


What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy®, available at Faces of South Tampa, is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy® uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.

How is Ultherapy® different from other cosmetic procedures?
Ultherapy® is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes only about an hour for most clients, and there is no downtime. It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows the Faces providers to actually see the layers of tissue they target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.

How does Ultherapy® work?


How long does it last?
Clients of Faces treated with Ultherapy® still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.

Is Ultherapy® safe?
The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 350,000 treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years. At Faces of South Tampa, the providers perform every Ultherapy® treatment personally, to assure client safety and the best possible treatment outcomes.

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy®?
A good candidate for Ultherapy® is someone with skin that has some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of "maturing" skin. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin signals a potential Ultherapy® candidate. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy® is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, physically or financially. There are also younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Ultherapy® Client Testimonial


How does Ultherapy® stimulate the creation of collagen?

Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed and toned. As we age, collagen loses its strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Ultherapy® uses focused ultrasound to generate a thermal affect under the skin. The thermal affect essentially jumpstarts a repair process that strengthens existing collagen and produces fresh, new collagen.

Can men receive Ultherapy®?
Yes! Both women and men globally are receiving Ultherapy®.

How can potential clients learn more?
Faces of South Tampa offers complimentary Ultherapy® consultations, located inside the Bigelow Mansion at the corners of Bayshore and Gandy Boulevards. Potential Ultherapy® clients are encouraged to schedule with one of the providers at Faces to learn more about what sound can do for your skin!
