What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an innovative, non-surgical treatment that involves using tried-and-true ultrasound technology to repair aging skin. By administering high-frequency sound waves to the treatment area, this procedure encourages your body to create fresh collagen and tighten lax facial muscles – delivering an enhanced and youthful overall look. Ultherapy is commonly used as a non-surgical facelift or non-surgical neck lift.
Because Ultherapy relies on your body’s response to the treatment to restore your damaged skin, the results will emerge gradually, within several months. At that point, your sagging skin will be subtly elevated, wrinkles and fine lines will be less prominent and you’ll possess a radiant and youthful facial glow.

The Ultherapy treatment experience
Your soothing NYC Ultherapy treatments will be performed in the comfort of Dr. Scarpidis’ private office. Your appointment will begin with our team applying a special lubricating gel to your treatment area. From there, we will gently move the Ultherapy wand over your skin, promoting the production of fresh and youthful collagen to repair damaged areas and elevate aging skin.
You can expect the entire pain-free experience to last approximately thirty minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. At that point, you’ll be able to return to work and your normal daily activities immediately, with absolutely no downtime. In general, our patients do not experience any side effects from our gentle Ultherapy treatments in New York. However, in the rare event that you do have a reaction, it will be extremely mild in the form of minor swelling, redness and numbness that rapidly disappears.
In terms of results, you can expect them to appear within three to six months and endure for at least one year. In some cases, your results will last even longer, though that will depend on a variety of personal factors, including your genetics, diet, age and the quantity of collagen your body produced in response to the treatment. In order to preserve your results long-term, you will need to return to Dr. Scarpidis’ office for regular maintenance visits moving forward.
