Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure performed by Cindy McElwain, RN. Cindy has spent her entire career in the operating room as part of the Plastic Surgery Team. After many years of experience performing Ultherapy Treatments, she has been deemed one of the Premier Providers in the country, a bonus to the residents of Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs, CA.

The Ultherapy procedure for the face uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. With Ultherapy, you have no recovery time and no change in your activities, but just a healthy renewal beneath the skin surface to trigger natural skin’s rejuvenation.

With Ultherapy, you can go about your day after a single, 30 to 60 minute in-office procedure at Sofonio Aesthetics. You may notice an immediate change in skin tightness, followed by a natural renewal process leading to more elastic, resilient, youthful skin.

Celebrity Endorsements

Supermodel, actress, and designer Christie Brinkley has revealed she uses Ultherapy® to keep herself looking as good as she feels. She has joined more than a million patients who have opted for non-surgical skin lifting and tightening, and she loves her natural-looking results.

“… My favorite thing about Ultherapy is I still look like me!!!!”

“… if you can have something done to feel more confident and better about yourself, then you feel like your face matches your spirit – and my spirit is enthusiastic and energetic.” – Christie Brinkley

What is the Treatment Like?

The FDA-cleared device used in the procedure utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the skin's surface thus no down time, no risk.

Unlike laser treatments, which penetrate the skin from the outside, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen lives. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy triggers natural skin renewal from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively.

In some ways, Ultherapy is just like an ultrasound imaging procedure that expectant mothers may receive. A smooth handpiece is placed on your skin and an image of the tissue beneath is projected on a screen. This allows for a customized ultherapy in Palm Desert to target your specific areas of concern.

Recovery Time After Ultherapy

There are no special measures you need to take. You can immediately return to your daily routine. Your skin may appear flushed immediately after your treatment, but any redness should disappear within a few hours. It is possible to experience slight swelling for a few days or an area of tingling/tenderness to the touch for a few weeks following the procedure, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

Outsmart Nature with A Custom Ultherapy Treatment

Sofonio Aesthetics offers an array of non-surgical enhancements delivered with precision and at a great value. Ultherapy uses the sound energy and images of ultrasound to bypass the upper layers of skin to specifically address the underlying structure where collagen lives. This means it works from the inside out to tone, tighten, and lift skin. It can be used on:

  • Décolletage: To minimize wrinkles and lines in the upper chest and neck
  • Saggy neck: The only non-invasive treatment FDA-approved to treat loose skin on your neck
  • Chin and brow: To lift skin under the chin and on your brow
