Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared treatment to use ultrasound for a face “lift”. While lasers improve the appearance of the superficial skin layers, Ultherapy® goes deep. The non-surgical skin tightening procedure affects the foundational layers, SMAS and Platysma, which support the skin.
Although Ultherapy® does duplicate results achieved with a surgical facelift; it is an effective alternative for those with mild to moderately loose skin around the face and neck.
The cost of Ultherapy® can also be significantly lower than that of a full surgical facelift.
New York City Ultherapy® is also often utilized by young patients looking to stay ahead of the aging process. The skin-tightening treatment stimulates the natural production of collagen, keeping wrinkles and loose skin at bay.
As a premiere New York City Ultherapy provider, Dr. Jennifer Levine offers Ultherapy in Long Island as well as her Upper East Side NYC office.
One of the reasons our patients love Ultherapy® is that it is a “lunch-time” treatment that requires no downtime, while providing noticeable results. You can get back to your normal routine in a New York City minute.
How much does Ultherapy® cost?
The cost of Ultherapy® depends on the area being treated. Since the exact cost can be different in each individual case, it is better you schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Jennifer Levine for a specific quote tailored for you.
What kind of technology does Ultherapy® use?
The Ultherapy® treatment uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology, which has received FDA clearance for use in this new type of medical procedure.
How does Ultherapy® work?
Ultherapy® deposits focused ultrasound energy to the deep layers of the skin to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen. As a result, skin will begin to lift and tone over time*.
What does collagen do? How does Ultherapy® stimulate the creation of collagen? Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin a youthful appearance by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic.
As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Ultherapy® is an uplifting treatment that jumps starts a repair process that produces new collagen.
Am I a good candidate for Ultherapy®?
Ideal clients for Ultherapy® treatments are individuals who have mild to moderate skin laxity on their face and neck, as well as wrinkles on their décolletage.
Other uses for Ultherapy® include tightening of the skin on the arms, elbows, and knees.
Can I do Ultherapy® with other procedures?
Yes! The best Ultherapy® treatment is one that produces ideal results for the patient. In some cases, that can be best achieved with a combination of treatments.
While this non-surgical skin-tightening treatment will also firm the skin, Dr. Levine often recommends combining it with injectables to replenish volume loss and create a more youthful contour. Schedule your Ultherapy consultation for more information.
Who administers my Ultherapy® treatment?
Since the Ultherapy® facelift is non-surgical; our trained medical assistants can safely perform your procedure. If you choose, double-board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jennifer Levine, can perform Ultherapy® with the use of local anaesthesia for a more comfortable experience.
Where is Ultherapy® performed?
This non-surgical facelift can be performed in the comfort of our Upper East Side NYC office. If during your consultation for a non-surgical face lift, it is determined that you are a candidate for this procedure, we can schedule your Ultherapy® treatment at your earliest convenience. *Since there is minimal downtime, our patients can go right back to their lives without interruption.
Is Ultherapy® safe?
The safety of the procedure was demonstrated through clinical studies that lead to an FDA clearance, and tens of thousands of non-surgical face lift treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
Why should I choose Ultherapy over a traditional facelift procedure?
Ultherapy is ideal for both, rejuvenation and pre-juvenation. This non-invasive treatment naturally promotes the production of collagen, which can start slowing down in your late 20’s, early 30’s. Whether you have mild to moderately sagging facial skin or want to prevent it, Ultherapy is the ideal uplifting treatment.
Our patients love Ultherapy because:
There is no downtime. They can go right back to their normal routine after the treatment, CrossFit and all!
Natural, gradual results. One of the drawbacks of getting a surgical cosmetic treatment such as a facelift is the instant results. Today, patients want to look their best selves without the appearance of having “work done”. Additionally, if you are unable to undergo a surgical procedure due to a medical restriction, you are likely able to have Ultherapy treatments.
Less costly. An Ultherapy treatment is about ¼ of what a surgical facelift might cost you.
Many celebrities including Christie Brinkley, Jennifer Aniston and RHONJ star Jacqueline Laurita use Ultherapy to maintain their youthful looks.

What are the steps of the procedure?
In New York City, Ultherapy is dubbed the “lunchtime treatment” as you can get it done in as little as an hour and a half. Prior to scheduling your treatment, Dr. Levine will evaluate your skin laxity and texture to ensure that you are a good candidate for the treatment. In some cases, Dr. Levine may recommend a combination of treatments to give you the ideal results you are looking for.
At the start of the treatment, the treatment area will be cleansed and marked. Dr. Levine or the medical assistant administering the treatment will usually start with the central area of the neck and then move on to other regions.
How does Ultherapy treatment stimulate natural skin tightening?
Ultherapy is unique in the way it effectively tightens and tones your skin. The ultrasound face lift treatment wand transmits energy waves to the deep tissue of the skin, prompting it to produce collagen, which is responsible for keeping your skin tight and supple. Ultherapy is effective in reversing the slowdown of collagen production which starts in your late 20’s, early 30’s.

“Dr. Jennifer Levine is absolutely amazing! This procedure was wonderful and I look so much younger! I am so glad I had this done. I was nervous at first but went through with it. A Brazilian wax is 10x more painful so in essence this was not painful at all. I love the cozy blanket and pillow you get and when it’s done there was no bruising I was back to work!!! Just wonderful I highly recommend it!”
“Choosing Dr. Levine was the best decision I have ever made. From the consultation date to the last visit after the surgery Dr Levine & her staff were extremely helpful, polite, & made me feel like they really cared for me. Dr. Levine exceeded my expectations & I couldn’t be happier with the results.”
