Ultherapy® - The Non-surgical Lift


Dr. Sparano is proud to offer Ultherapy® in New Jersey (NJ). Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared procedure to non-invasively LIFT the eyebrow, neck, and under-chin. It is also FDA-cleared to improve décolletage lines and wrinkles! As an advanced application, we can use Ultherapy® to also elevate the mid-face, and tighten the junction between the lower eyelids and cheek.


Use of Ultherapy® necessitates an art form and science in order for successful results to be achieved. A solid understanding of the tissue planes and anatomy, as well as of the technologic nuances of this energy form, is required for optimal results. Careful ultrasound imaging allows Dr. Sparano to precisely direct the treatment energy for desired results. The ultrasound energy heats the target tissue to create a tightening phenomenon, without disruption of the skin layer. Additionally, the tissue response will involve the formation of new collagen, which creates a firm substrate for the overlying skin and an overall more youthful appearance.




Ultherapy® is a very safe, non-surgical therapy. It harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the treated areas. Ultrasound energy has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy®has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies, and in over half a million treatments worldwide.


An Ultherapy® treatment typically takes approximately 30-90 minutes to perform. There is no true downtime or recovery period, and patients can return to life events the day of their procedure, should they choose. Some erythema (redness), mild swelling, and other slight skin reactions can occur following treatment, but usually the post-procedure period is unremarkable.


Results are very natural appearing. While results typically begin to manifest early after treatment, the full effect of treatment most definitively presents itself 3-6 months following therapy. Complimentary consultations are performed pre-procedure to confirm candidacy and to offer instructions on how to prepare the skin for treatment.


The best patients for Ultherapy® are patients seeking brow elevation; patients with loose skin and soft tissue at the décolletage; patients with loose neck skin and associated jowling; patients with a “falling” midface; or with significant laxity of the junction between the lower eyelid and cheek. Various other indications exist, and Ultherapy® is actively being studied as an effective treatment for “loose” body tissue, especially in combination with Cellfina™ for the treatment of cellulite of the buttocks and thighs.
