What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology to tighten and lift
sagging skin and restore a healthy glow on the face, neck and décolletage. In addition, this treatment also
improves the look of fine lines and deep wrinkles, making it an excellent option for individuals who want to
achieve a rejuvenated and youthful appearance, without the risks and downtime associated with invasive
How does Ultherapy work?
Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy sends high-frequency sound waves to stimulate cells deep beneath the
skin’s surface layers, promoting collagen production and tightening the underlying muscles. Over time, this
results in skin that is healthy, vibrant and lifted.
Because Ultherapy works by naturally replenishing the body’s collagen, you can expect to see the full
results of your procedure within three to six months. At that time, sagging skin in the treatment area will
be lifted and volumized, and you’ll experience a renewed glow throughout your face. In addition, fine lines
and deep wrinkles will be dramatically improved, restoring a smooth and youthful overall appearance.
The longevity of your results will vary depending on how much collagen your body produces, as well as your age, diet and congenital factors. However, the vast majority of our clients still see noticeable results two years after their initial procedure and continue to undergo follow-up treatments to maintain their new, youthful appearance. At Marcus Medical Spa, we are committed to your long-term satisfaction, and will help you track your unique results and determine when you should return for your maintenance appointments.

What to expect during the Ultherapy procedure
During your Los Angeles Ultherapy procedure at Marcus Medical Spa, we will begin by applying a lubricating gel to your
skin, before passing the ultrasound wand over the areas where your skin and muscles could use a lift. You
can expect your entire 20 to 40 minute procedure to be virtually pain-free, with most clients only reporting
very minimal and short-lasting discomfort. However, if you have a low threshold for pain, you may be advised
to take over-the-counter pain medication prior to your treatment to ensure your comfort. Because Ultherapy
is completely non-invasive, there is virtually no downtime associated with the procedure and you will be
able to resume your normal activities immediately.
Are there any side effects?
It is very rare for an individual to experience side effects with an Ultherapy procedure. When
complications do occur, they are typically in the form of a very mild skin reaction, such as swelling,
numbness and redness in the treatment area. However, these effects are very uncommon and will subside on
their own within a short period of time.
Am I a good candidate for Ultherapy?
At Marcus Medical Spa, we’re committed to personalized care, and we only administer treatments if it’s
truly in the client’s best interest. As such, we determine candidacy for all of our procedures on an
individual basis, following a thorough discussion of your cosmetic goals, concerns and desires.
With that said, individuals are typically considered candidates for Ultherapy if they would like to treat
aging skin and achieve a lifted and rejuvenated facial appearance. Because it’s a very gentle procedure
without many risks, Ultherapy is perfect for clients who are interested in a completely noninvasive
