Ulthera® Skin Tightening
Skin Tightening with Ultrasound
Ulthera is the next evolution in aesthetic science. It delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery — without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. This energy initiates the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and strengthen weak collagen. Some patients see an initial effect right after treatment but the real results appear over 2 to 3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting and tightening skin on the face and neck and smoothing skin on the chest.
Technological advances have made nonsurgical skin tightening techniques some of the most popular med spa procedures in recent years, helping patients restore firm, youthful contours in areas where their skin has sagged with age or they’ve struggled with excess fat. At Cosmedica, Dr. Otto Weiglein and our staff have performed clinical evaluations of numerous non-invasive skin tightening treatments to offer our patients effective, lasting results. Ultherapy treatment performed the best, and we’re excited to offer this breakthrough technology at our clinic.

Non Surgical Skin Tightening Before & After Photos
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
What Is the Ulthera®?
Ulthera treatments are cleared by Health Canada and the FDA in the U.S. and use ultrasound to energy to target deep layers of the skin with precision, even deeper than radiofrequency (RF). A treatment heats underlying tissue to stimulate and strengthen collagen growth, while the temperature at the surface is regulated to ensure patients remain comfortable during treatments.
The system can be used to tighten skin on the following areas:
The treatments can be combined with other nonsurgical anti-aging procedures, such as injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers. Many patients, particularly those with less extensive signs of aging, find the treatments a suitable alternative to a facelift. Dr. Weiglein can evaluate your skin and recommend the best procedure for you.

What to Expect
Moderate redness and minor swelling last briefly, and you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately. Ultherapy is not a laser skin tightening treatment. Patients at our Burlington clinic don’t endure skin peeling, pigment changes, or prolonged healing after an Ultherapy session. Treatments are generally comfortable.
When Will I See Results?
The energy heating the deeper layers of skin immediately triggers collagen remodeling, so you may see some results instantly after your treatment. The most significant improvements occur gradually and usually arise about 6 weeks to 6 months after your final treatment. In some cases, however, new collagen can be produced for up to 18 months!
Combining Skin Tightening With Sculptra® Aesthetic
Sometimes we need to replenish volume-loss in our face as well as lift the sagging skin. Our highly trained nurses can give you guidance as to whether this may be the case for you. Ulthera is excellent for lifting, firming and tightening the skin on your face and jawline. Although, because it takes some time to see full results, many of our patients combine treatment with either Dermal fillers or Sculptra injections to get an immediate rested look and add volume to areas that may be sunken. Injectable treatments are spaced two weeks apart from your ulthera treatment to allow skin to heal in between therapies. Patients that combine both treatments end up with the best of both worlds! It is definitely the best treatment combination if you want well-rounded results.
Dermal fillers and Sculptra have two completely different treatment indications. Our blog includes a post that helps explain more about what makes Sculptra different from other fillers. You can also visit our Dermal Fillers & Sculptra page to learn more about when you would use each and why.Back to Top
