Where do you look when you talk to a person? Sure, especially to the eyes! Crow’s feet, dark circles, sunken eyebrows, drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes: these are all phenomena that can affect the radiance and beautiful look of the eyes. As a result, they automatically appear more mature and used up. Special cosmetics such as eye creams or moisturizing eye pads care for the skin and can bring a short-term improvement – but they are not able to create a permanent, clearly visible tightening. Ultherapy is different: with the innovative ultrasound treatment, we can effectively and long-lasting tighten your eye area. The treatment is currently the only FDA-approved lifting method without surgery that uses micro-focused ultrasound and can optimize the elasticity of the skin from the inside out.
How ultherapy works
Ultherapy is a gentle, yet highly effective alternative to scalpels and chemicals. It is a non-invasive treatment that allows us to lift your skin from the deeper layers of the skin. The tightening and strengthening of the skin is your body’s natural response to the therapy. For this reason, your body will not be stressed.
But how exactly does the anti-aging treatment method work? It works with ultrasound, which you are certainly familiar with from medical examinations. In sonographic imaging, for example during an examination of the kidney or during pregnancy, the energy of the ultrasound waves is low and the pulses are very short. Inside your body, the waves are scattered and reflected to different degrees, creating an image of the inside of your body. The image is something like the echo of the ultrasound waves.
By using stronger ultrasound waves with more energy and prolonged, focused pulses, we can create a very positive response from your skin. The energy reaches into deeper layers of the skin up to 4.5 mm. This is optimal for reaching the so-called SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system, the actual connective tissue holding apparatus of the skin). This is a connective tissue muscle layer in the subcutaneous tissue. This is also treated during a surgical facelift.
When we treat this layer with Ultherapy, the microfocused ultrasound energy heats the tissue. This causes the connective tissue to contract and stimulates the formation of collagen. And a strong collagen framework allows the skin to stay wrinkle-free longer.

Ultherapy eyes: these signs of aging on the eyes can be improved with ultrasound
Lifting the eyebrows with ultherapy
Eyebrows frame your eyes and are an important aesthetic feature on your face. It’s a shame that they can’t defy the aging process either. However, as the skin loses its elasticity with age and the muscles of the forehead slacken, the eyebrows can sag first laterally over the edge of the eyelids and then in general. The result: low-set eyebrows.
If you are also one of those people who do not want to accept the visual effects of the aging process, but for whom a facelift is out of the question, then we can help with our ultrasound treatment: With Ultherapy, we stimulate the repair mechanism of the collagen fibers. Your body produces more collagen again. This also has a positive effect on the eyebrow area: They move upwards again, your eyes appear more open, your gaze becomes more alert.
Initial results can often be seen after the first treatment. Further results develop over a period of three to six months.
Fight drooping eyelids with ultherapy
Drooping of the eyebrows, which are directly connected to the lid of the eyelid, as well as the effects of general aging of the skin, can cause drooping eyelids.
Those who want to remove their drooping eyelids but do not want to have a surgical upper eyelid lift can rely on Ultherapy. The ultrasound procedure can also be used to tighten and lift the upper eyelids.
Alleviate eye wrinkles with ultherapy
Laugh lines and crow’s feet look appealing. But especially when they are visible not only when laughing, but always, they can be disturbing. With Ultherapy it is not only possible to lift the eyebrows and tighten the upper eyelids – we can also smooth eye wrinkles with it.
