It's known as the 'Lunchtime 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!
Skin Tightening has always been our specialty 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 since 2014. Our advanced Ultherapists customize every treatment to suit the needs of each individual. To find out if you would be a candidate for Ultherapy, book your consultation today.

Before Ultherapy the cutting and downtime of a surgical face-lift was the only option to penetrate as deeply as Ultherapy is capable of with no need to go under the knife.
Lasers are fantastic for many purposes. The depth of penetration with lasers is precise but very superficial. The injury created is very precise but limited to about 1 mm, give or take. Some devices deliver the energy in a non-invasive way for subtle results. Others are ablative and great for resurfacing the skin.
The first treatment ever developed for the specific purpose of tightening skin was Thermage, which uses radiofrequency waves to injure the dermal layers of the skin. It creates bulk heating so the depth of injury is variable. Temperatures high enough to cause skin tightening will usually be concentrated at 1.5 to 2 mm. More recently, other radio-frequency devices have been introduced, but none can control the depth of injury precisely. Thermage was still recognized as the gold standard in non-invasive skin tightening until Ultherapy was developed.
It’s the newest modality designed to tighten skin and uses focused ultrasound to deliver controlled injury. Because ultrasound allows us to see beneath the surface of the skin we can safely injure deeper than any other treatment within the aesthetics industry. In a single treatment Ultherapy can cause precise injury at three depths in the same treatment:
• At 1.5 mm for superficial tightening where it is needed.
• At 3.0 mm reach deeply into the dermis.
• At 4.5 mm bypass the dermis and target the muscle beneath known as the SMAS. The only other way to injure the SMAS in a controlled way is with a surgical facelift. Thus, while Ultherapy cannot promise facelift results, it is as close as you can get to a facelift without going under the knife.
• Replaces lost collagen to reduce and prevent sagging
• Tightens skin for better tone
• Elevates the brow, reduces hooding of the eyelids, opens up the eye area
• Creates a sleeker, more defined jawline, and reduces jowls.
• Restores fullness in the cheeks and lifts the nasolabial folds
• Tightens and reduces sagging of the neck and chest
• Face Slimming
• Minimal or no downtime
• Natural, noticeable results without surgery
Ultherapy 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 as new collagen forms over a few months after the treatment. Unlike surgery, there is no risk that you will look like anyone other than yourself, only a younger version of yourself.
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 stimulates 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 aponeurotic system (the SMAS layer). The SMAS is the layer of muscles targeted during the 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 the 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.
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!). Ultherapy is a great treatment for face slimming.
Natural, Noticeable Results without surgery
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 the 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.
