HOO ULTRALIFT (Ultherapy)
HOO ULTRALIFT (Ultherapy) is the gold standard for non-surgical lifting and skin tightening. It is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. The device uses micro-focused ultrasound to deliver thermal coagulation points on the skin eliciting a wound healing response which results in new collagen formation and skin tissue contraction.

It is important that you follow through with yearly touch ups to help provide more control over the aging process.
