Over time, decreased collagen and elastin can cause skin to sag and develop folds, wrinkles, and jowls. Ultherapy is a noninvasive treatment that tightens and lifts skin to counteract these signs of aging – without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.

What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy Reston is an FDA-approved treatment designed to address skin laxity and tighten the neck, chin, brow, and décolletage. It is completely noninvasive, and an excellent option for women and men of all skin types who are not ready to undergo a surgical facelift.
It can also help maintain firmness following a facelift and may be paired with other cosmetic treatments, including dermal fillers and laser skin resurfacing.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy Reston is an innovative technology that delivers focused ultrasound energy deep into the dermis. In doing so, it creates controlled thermal damage, initiates a wound-healing response, and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Depending on the treatment area(s), an Ultherapy treatment usually takes 30-90 minutes.
What is Unique About Ultherapy Skin Tightening?
Using ultrasound imaging, Ultherapy Reston provides a detailed view of each patient’s underlying tissue. This feature allows the practitioner to precisely apply energy and customize treatment for optimal outcomes.
Does it Hurt?
Sensitivity and pain threshold can vary from person to person. With that being said, most patients report a brief stinging sensation as the ultrasound energy is delivered.
If you are concerned about discomfort, we offer Pro-Nox for painless cosmetic treatments.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
One of the key advantages of this treatment is that it can achieve dramatic skin tightening, firming, and lifting in a single treatment. Depending on the degree of laxity and desired results, some patients may benefit from multiple sessions.
When Can Patients See Results?
This treatment rejuvenates skin through collagenesis. As such, results occur gradually and can be noted within 2-3 months. Tightening and firming continues to improve for up to 6 months.
Is There Any Downtime?
Ultherapy Reston is a zero-downtime procedure, and patients are free to resume all normal activities immediately after.
