Ultherapy is an innovative way to lift, tone and strengthen loose, lax skin on the brow, face and neck. It’s not surgery, an injection or a laser. The FDA-cleared Ulthera® System uses ultrasound to see below the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep foundational layers of tissue. The result? Brows that are lifted and skin that is strengthened and tightened – from the inside out. You’ll see long-lasting results, with no downtime
Remedy is one of the earliest practices to begin performing Ultherapy and the first in the Conejo Valley.

Dr. Emery answers FAQs about Ultherapy
Q. Is Ultherapy right for me?
A. If your skin looks and feels less firm or if you’ve noticed a lowered brow line or sagging skin on your eyelids, face or neck, Ultherapy may be an ideal solution for you. In the FDA clinical trial for instance, nine out of ten patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line. This resulted in reduced skin laxity on the eyelid and a more open, youthful look to the eyes overall. Patients reported firmer, better fitting skin in other areas of the face and neck as well. While it does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery.
Q. How does Ultherapy work?
A. Ultherapy is the only non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure that uses ultrasound to see below the surface of the skin and to specifically target the deep foundational layer of tissue that doctors address in surgery. As with other ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen that allows us to plan where the energy will be directed. This same applicator is then used to deliver low levels of focused heat to just the right depth below the skin to achieve a positive effect, all the while leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed. Targeting the deep foundational layers of tissue, it triggers the body’s own regenerative process of building new collagen, lifting and tightening skin from the inside out.
Q. How soon will I see results?
A. With just one treatment, the regenerative process is initiated. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over time, with the full effect building over the course of two to three months.
Q. How many treatments are needed?
A. The majority of patients respond very well to just one treatment, however some may benefit from more.
Q. Is Ultherapy safe?
A. Ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with over 50 years of use in the field of medicine. Ultherapy is cleared by the FDA, and has an excellent safety profile.
Q. Are there needles or incisions? Does it hurt?
A. Unlike surgery, there are no needles, incisions or scars. There can be some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary, and a signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, and we will discuss options for making the experience as pleasant as possible.
Q. How long does it take? Is there downtime?
A. Treatments typically last 30-60 minutes. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.
