What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. Currently, it has been FDA approved for use on the brow, neck, and under the chin. There are many other ares that can be treated as well, if found appropriate by MR Khalifeh, in an “off-label” use of the device.

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of penetrating ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including some of the deeper layers that are typically addressed in a facelift but missed by the older surface laser or surface chemical peels. The effect of focused ultrasound energy on the growth of new collagen over time. This remodeling of tissues will lead to increased tightening and uplift. With Ultherapy, there’s little to no dowtime.


Ultherapy costs are determined by the extent of treatment. The doctor will determine the number of “lines” needed for treatment, and we charge $3.00—4.00 a line. This translates into treatments starting at $1,200.00 for a three-four hundred line treatment. Is your aging too advanced for Ultherapy? We recommend you explore a facelift procedure.
