What is Ultherapy?
It's known as the 'Lunch time Lift" Ultherapy is the new “Gold Standard” and while it cannot deliver facelift results it is as close as you can get to a facelift without surgery. It is a non-invasive treatment that allows you to have the treatment during the day and go out for dinner that very night. Results develop gradually over a few months. Unlike surgery, there is no risk that you will look like anyone other than yourself, only a younger version of yourself.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Also clinically proven to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest! Skinpossible is proud to be an Award-Winning Ultherapy provider. We are the Top Ultherapy clinic in Canada!
Skin Tightening has always been our speciality and this new technology allows us to deliver even better results. Ultherapy sets a new standard within the aesthetics industry because when it comes to non- invasive skin rejuvenation there is nothing else like it. Ultherapy uses ultrasound to see below the surface of the skin. This allows Ultherapy to safely go deeper than any other technology is capable of.
The recipient of multiple awards for best in-office treatment, Ultherapy has the highest patient satisfaction rating of all skin tightening treatments. Skinpossible is recognized by Ulthera for having performed more treatments than any other clinic in Alberta. Our advanced Ultherapists customize every treatment to suit the needs of each individual.

How Does it Work
Natural | Non-Invasive | No Downtime
Ultherapy delivers low levels of focused heat to just the right depth below the skin to target the deep tissues. The surface of the skin remains undisturbed but the controlled injury to the deeper layers triggers a healing response in the skin. The skin contracts and tightens immediately and, like other skin tightening procedures, Ultherapy simulates the growth of new collagen, but DEEPER than ever before!
A smooth applicator (placed on the skin) projects an image onto the screen that allows us to see and plan where to direct the energy. We deliver energy to two depths during a single treatment. One pass penetrates 3 mm in depth which is as deep as you can go and still be in the dermis. Another pass over the treatment area penetrates 4.5 mm into the superficial muscular apo-neurotic system (the SMAS layer).
The SMAS is the layer of muscles targeted during surgical forehead, face and neck lifts. An Ultherapy™ treatment is non-surgical and cannot deliver the results of a surgical facelift. For people who are not ready for a facelift or just don’t want to have surgery, however, it is a non-invasive alternative that requires just a single treatment. Ultherapy can also be used to further enhance results of a surgical facelift.
Your body's response to this energy is to recondition tired skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lifting—or shifting—of the skin back into a more youthful position and form-fitting shape. Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, the Ultherapy®procedure bypasses the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen lives. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy actually works from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively.
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!).
What to Expect
The Beauty of Ultherapy is that results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months, including lifting of the skin on the neck, under the chin and on the brow. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.
*The satisfaction rating for this treatment is very high but results do vary from person to person. While we can control the technology and the parameters we set, it is beyond our ability to control how any individual will respond to any treatment.
