In our cosmetic surgery and laser dermatology practice we specialize in non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to enhance one’s looks and youthfulness. Ultherapy® fits beautifully into our mold as one of the best available cosmetic procedures.  It is the only non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift and tighten loose skin on the eyebrow, neck, and under the chin.

The only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas, Ultherapy® uses 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 surface of the skin.

Areas of Concern:

Now there’s a way to stand firm in the face of gravity on your terms. With Ultherapy®, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.

With Ultherapy®, you can go about your day after a single, 60-90 minute in-office procedure. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!). Call Riopelle Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center at (925) 275-9333 to schedule an appointment to find out if you’re a good candidate for Ultherapy®.
