How It Works

Ultherapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes advanced technology to emit microfocused ultrasound energy. This energy is precisely delivered to specific depths within the skin, targeting areas where collagen production is stimulated. By placing the specialized device against the skin, Ultherapy effectively harnesses the power of ultrasound to rejuvenate and tighten the skin on the face, neck, and chest. As a result, the process helps lift and tighten the skin over time. 

Dr. Liu and his team perform all procedures at the AAAASF-accredited San Mateo Surgical Center, ensuring outstanding patient care, personalized attention, and access to the most advanced breakthrough technology. The climate-controlled waiting and reception areas, spotless surgical suites, and soothing recovery quarters create a healing environment that promotes well-being and comfort at every juncture.


Following Ultherapy, patients can resume their normal activities immediately, as there is no downtime associated with the treatment. Some individuals may experience mild redness or swelling, which typically subsides quickly, allowing them to return to their daily routines with minimal interruption.
