Benefits/How It Works
Ulthera™, approved by both Health Canada and the FDA, is indicated as a non-invasive browlift as well as for tightening lax skin of the face and neck. It lifts and contours lax skin with lasting and natural results. Drawing from time-tested ultrasound principles, Ulthera™ triggers the body's natural healing responses. This results in new and improved collagen development, as well as a gradual lifting and tightening of the skin. This unique procedure is the first non-invasive procedure with an FDA approval for lifting the skin.

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Mark Lupin understands the significance of patient safety and comfort. His practice is dedicated to providing high-quality cosmetic medical care for patients on Vancouver Island.
Ulthera™ works by utilizing focused ultrasound energy at an ideal depth below the skin to achieve lifting, tightening, and firming without harming the skin's surface. At this level, Ulthera™ encourages the body's natural healing responses to remodel targeted tissues and promote new collagen formation.
