At Flores Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of non-surgical treatments to reduce the visible effects of age and restore a younger-looking appearance. One such treatment is Ultherapy, a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound energy to tighten loose or lax skin. Our Ultherapy treatments are a good non-surgical alternative for patients who are interesting in treating mild to moderate cases of loose or lax skin without experiencing a lengthy recovery period.

What is Ultherapy?
This non-surgical skin tightening treatment uses ultrasound energy to heat the deep layers of skin tissue, which causes existing collagen structures to contract and stimulates the natural production of collagen structures. Contraction of the collagen structures and the development of new collagen structures tightens and lifts the skin to create a firmer, younger-looking appearance.
Why should you choose Ultherapy?
- Short treatment sessions that can be fit into the busiest of schedules
- Non-invasive treatment with little to no downtime
- Stimulates the production of new collagen structures
- Non-surgical treatment option to tighten loose or lax skin
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients only require a single treatment session in order to achieve visible results. Some patients may require additional treatment sessions, depending on the severity of skin laxity. We often recommend that our patients have a follow-up Ultherapy treatment once a year to maintain their results.
Common treatment areas include:
What results can I expect from Ultherapy treatments?
Results of this non-surgical skin tightening treatment develop gradually as the new collagen forms and improves the structure and elasticity of the skin. Most of our patients see the most noticeable results of Ultherapy treatments approximately two to three months after their treatment session. The results of your treatment can continue to improve for up to six months after your treatment session. Individual results may vary.
Are there any potential side effects?
Some patients may experience some mild redness in the treated area for several hours after their treatment session. Mild swelling, tenderness, and/or tingling sensations in the treatment area are also common throughout the first week following your Ultherapy treatment. These side effects are temporary and should resolve on their own.
