Wrinkle Smoothing Collagen Regeneration
Micro-Focused Ultrasound Lifting Non-Invasive Anti-Aging
- SEE THE BEAUTY OF SOUND -
For the past decades, surgical lifting has served as the only way to get rid of sagginess. However, the emergence of ULTHERAPY® has revolutionized this situation. Nowadays, more people prefer the use of advanced non-invasive scarless anti-aging technology to delay signs of aging, stimulate collagen regrowth and rejuvenate the skin.
What is ULTHERAPY®?
ULTHERAPY® is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment that uses heat to reverse signs of aging.
ULTHERAPY® by MERZ is by far the most advanced ultrasound anti-aging device. Its micro-focused ultrasound technology enables high-intensity ultrasound to target the treated area without damaging any skin tissues. ULTHERAPY® engages precise ultrasonic energy to go 4.5MM-, 3.0MM- and/or 1.5MM-skin deep, triggering cellular friction and intense heating at pinpointed thermal coagulation points. The heat generated at these focal points will stimulate tissue repair, refill and reshape, collagen regrowth, and an increase in collagen fiber and elastic fiber. ULTHERAPY® provides multiple support to the skin –including tightening, lifting, whitening, increased elasticity, wrinkle, and pigmentation reduction – which is how the treatment got its name: for working its ‘ultra’ magic and showing ‘ultra’ fast results in anti-aging.
The SMAS layer holds the key to anti-aging. It is what’s underneath the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous fat, yet on top of the muscular layer. It is the key to skin firmness and elasticity, as well as well-defined face contours. In the past, any non-surgical skin tightening devices had not been able to reach as deep as the SMAS layer, which is why they could not tackle the problem of aging from the core. The good news is: ULTHERAPY® is the exception!
The Ultherapy procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the skin's surface.
Unlike lasers, radiofrequency, surgery, and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the skin's surface to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.

- Real Matters: Things that Counterfeit Ultherapy Machines Cannot Achieve -
#1: One-off lifting in the SMAS layer for long-lasting results
With ultrasonic energy, Ultherapy® goes as deep as 1.5MM-4.5MM on the skin via thousands of tiny thermal coagulation points and straight to the SMAS layer. The procedure then stimulates the continuous regrowth of collagen and rebuilds support for skin elasticity.
One single treatment delivers long-lasting effects. Skin is smoothed and lifted; wrinkles are reduced, facial contours are more defined. These results will continue to show. Patients will appear younger day by day.
#2: Heat transfer from inside out for ease and safety
Ultherapy® engages ultrasonic energy to focus precisely on the deep layer of the SMAS, triggering collagen regrowth, face lifting, and tightening from the inside out. This is achieved by the company’s brand new heat transfer technology mode. By bypassing the epidermis, there are zero risks of the heat resides or burns.
During the procedure, patients will feel nothing but ease and comfort. There is hardly any pain sensation, which makes the procedure an extremely safe one.
#3: Smart temperature control for immediate results
Ultherapy® heats the skin to 65℃-70℃, which is by far the highest temperature a non-invasive tightening device in the market can go. Optimal temperature is employed to ensure optimal collagen regrowth.
Without causing damage to the epidermis, patients will notice immediate lifting and tightening results!
#4: Ultrasound imaging for precise focus on heating points
Ultherapy® comes with cartridge auto-detection and energy monitoring functions, which allow practitioners to precisely control the depth of skin and amount of heat energy used. Also, DEEPSEE® technology enables practitioners to see exactly where they are treating, even when it comes to the 8MM-deep SMAS tissue, guaranteeing treatment accuracy and patients’ safety.
#5: Proven success by millions
Ultherapy® was introduced across Europe and Asia in 2008 and became FDA-approved in 2009. For more than 10 years now, it has benefited millions worldwide in defying time and gravity. It is one of the most sought-after anti-aging treatments among Hollywood female celebrities!

-ULTHERAPY® FAQs -
Q1: What is unique about ULTHERAPY®?
ULTHERAPY® is the world’s only FDA-approved system that uses MFU-V (micro-focused ultrasound with visualization) energy to lift and smooth wrinkles. Its micro-focused ultrasound technology enables high-intensity ultrasound to target the treated area without damaging any skin tissues.
The system can go as deep as 3.0MM-4.5MM, heating the SMAS layer tissue to 65C or above within 0.5-1 second, hence triggering collagen regeneration in the SMAS layer and achieving instantaneous lifting results.
Q2: What age group is ULTHERAPY® suitable for?
Generally, ULTHERAPY® is suitable for anyone aged between 18-60. However, it depends more on the patient’s skin condition. If there are noticeable signs of aging, such as sagginess and drooping of the skin, ULTHERAPY® is the cure.
Please get in touch with one of our customer service officers to book a free consultation and VISIA skin analysis for further information.
Q3: How many ULTHERAPY® treatments are required?
Most clients only need a one-off treatment. However, as our skin continues to age, many may opt for follow-up treatments to maintain firm skin and radiant glow despite time and gravity.
For more information, please contact our customer service team for a free consultation and tailor-made anti-aging treatment plan.
Q4: What is the difference between ULTHERAPY® and laser therapy?
ULTHERAPY® engages unique micro-focused ultrasound technology to bypass the skin surface and reach a depth that none other non-invasive beauty device could.
As for laser therapy, it engages light energy, which cannot penetrate deeper skin layers with an optimal temperature. This is why laser therapy usually targets the epidermis instead of the SMAS layer.
Q5: Can ULTHERAPY® replace cosmetic surgery?
Not entirely. However, it is a great choice for those who do not wish to go under the knife. ULTHERAPY® is a non-invasive lifting procedure. Micro-focused ultrasound technology helps improve skin texture, tighten loose and saggy skin, eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, restore radiance and elasticity to the face and contours.
Q6: How much does ULTHERAPY® cost?
It depends on the treated areas. For specifics, please get in touch with customer service to schedule a free consultation, detailed ULTHERAPY® price list, and discounts for a course of treatments.
Q7: Is ULTHERAPY® painless?
Generally, yes. However, pain sensation is unique to everyone. Any discomfort experienced during the course of collagen regeneration is temporary. During your consultation, we will discuss how to make the whole process comfortable and painless for you. We can provide you with anesthesia if necessary. After the procedure, there will be no pain, and when seeing the results, it will be totally worth it!
Q8: Does ULTHERAPY® cause any downtime?
No. After the procedure, patients can resume work and life as usual. There is a slight possibility of swelling, which may continue through the next few days post-treatment. However, any swelling will fade very soon and will not cause interruption to daily activities.
Q9: How long after ULTHERAPY® will there be noticeable results?
There may be signs of improvement immediately after the procedure. Results will become obvious within 4-6 weeks as the body regenerates collagen. Even better results will appear within 2-3 months, and results will peak after 6 months. ULTHERAPY® will trigger collagen regrowth in the deep layer of the SMAS. How long results may last mostly depends on the patient’s face and body condition and the natural aging process. In general, results usually last for 2-3 years.
Q10: Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Loose skin under the neck and the chin, or lines and wrinkles on the chest, are signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, many people want some facial lifting but are not ready for surgery, whether mentally, physically, or financially. There also are younger people who want to "stay ahead of the game," as well as patients wanting an aesthetic maintenance option.
Q11: Are there any side effects?
There may be a slight redness that typically resolves within a few hours following the treatment. Some patients may have slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Q12: How long does it take?
Since the procedure stimulates a person’s own collagen production, how long the results last depends on the individual, the treatment produces new collagen on the inside. Still, the individual’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Future touch-up treatments can help provide more control over the aging process, which varies by individual.
Q13: Is Ultherapy safe?
The Ulthera® System is currently marketed worldwide in more than 60 countries, and over 1 million treatments have been performed globally.7 In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
Q14: What does the Ultherapy treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel tiny amounts of energy deposited to precise depths, stimulating the collagen-building process. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is delivered.
