Ultherapy® in New York City
Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
The combination of age, sun damage, unhealthy lifestyle habits, and environmental damage causes the visible skin on the face and neck to weaken, thin, and sag. This causes many individuals to consider facial enhancement surgery, such as a facelift and/or neck lift.
While these surgeries provide lasting facial rejuvenation, they are invasive procedures that come with risks and downtime.
Fortunately, some patients experiencing facial and neck laxity can benefit from a less-invasive option. It’s called Ultherapy®, and it may allow you to tighten, lift, and tone the skin on your face and neck without surgery.
Ultherapy® is an ultrasound treatment that helps to stimulate collagen production and achieve a more youthful appearance. Since Ultherapy® requires no incisions and practically no downtime, you can get right back to your fast-paced New York lifestyle without hesitation.

What Is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy®, known as the uplifting ultrasound, is a non-invasive therapy that uses FDA-approved focused ultrasound energy to promote collagen growth beneath the skin’s surface. This tones and tightens the skin of your face and neck.
The ultrasonic energy is applied along your facial contours to stimulate the growth and production of new collagen fibers in the skin’s tissues. This helps strengthen and tighten the skin and provides significant structural support.
Ultherapy® does not physically move or reshape the skin like a facelift procedure. Instead, it helps the skin to tighten in a more youthful way.
Should I Combine My Ultherapy® Other Procedures?
While Ultherapy® can address skin laxity, it does not resurface the skin, correct hyperpigmentation or other tone concerns, or restore facial volume. Because of this, Ultherapy® is commonly combined with additional non-surgical therapies.
Other facial rejuvenating options available at New Look New Life include:

Recovery and Results After Ultherapy®
The results of ultrasound therapy can be significant, with many patients experiencing increased skin vitality and a more youthful and firm facial appearance.
What Will My Ultherapy® Recovery Be Like?
Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately following their treatment.
You may notice some slight swelling, bruising, or redness; however, this should subside in a day or two. You may resume your normal activities within an hour or two after walking out of our office.
Some patients have described minor muscle tenderness in the face that can last up to a week.
Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Kim provide all of their patients with their cell phone numbers. You can reach them at any time during your recovery if necessary.
Is Ultherapy® Painful?
Many patients have reported Ultherapy® to be comfortable.
A numbing cream is applied to the area prior to the session, which helps prevent any pain. It is possible for patients to feel a warming sensation during treatment; however, this is usually very manageable. Any post-treatment discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses.
Will Ultherapy® Leave Scars?
Ultherapy® is not cosmetic surgery, and no incisions are used. Therefore, there will be no scarring.
How Soon Will I See Results From Ultherapy®?
Many patients have reported skin improvements within hours of treatment. The full benefits of your session may take a few months to develop.
Your face will continue to look younger and brighter as the new collagen is restored. Wrinkles and fine lines will continue to fade, and your skin will tighten gradually.
Skin improvement can continue for up to six months after treatment as collagen continues to develop.

At New Look New Life, ultrasound therapy starts as low as $1,000. The cost of your Ultherapy® will include your surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, facility fees, and your follow-up visits.

What Are Some Frequently Asked Questions About Ultherapy®?
How long does Ultherapy® take?
Ultherapy® sessions take about an hour, and you can get right back to your routine immediately afterward. Some patients report mild discomfort or tingling during treatment that ceases once the session is complete.
How should I prepare for Ultherapy®?
There is little preparation required before an ultrasound therapy appointment. You should wash the treatment area 24 hours before your appointment.
If necessary, your board-certified cosmetic surgeon may prescribe medication for you to take before treatment to ease discomfort. This is rarely needed.
What are the risks associated with Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is not associated with any significant risks. Minor short-term side effects may include:
- Swelling in the treated area
- Tenderness, especially of the facial muscles
- Tingling, usually a reaction to the therapy stimulating nerves in the face
Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call their cosmetic surgeon’s cell phone immediately.
Are my Ultherapy® results permanent?
Many patients enjoy the benefits of their Ultherapy® treatment for up to one year. As your skin continues to age, you may opt for repeated treatments to encourage new collagen growth. Patients who undergo annual treatments can continue to enjoy the benefits of ultrasound therapy effectively indefinitely.
How is Ultherapy® different from laser treatments?
Both laser treatments and Ultherapy® can stimulate collagen production. However, laser treatments tend to target the upper layers of the skin, while ultrasound therapy targets the lower layers. Additionally, ultrasound is not ablative, meaning that the top layer of skin will not be damaged, and, therefore, will not peel afterward.
