Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses gentle ultrasound energy to lift and tighten loose, wrinkled skin. While other rejuvenating procedures may achieve your desired results, they also come with careful prep, extensive operations, and prolonged downtime. Ultherapy can be seamlessly squeezed into a busy schedule. After one simple session, your skin will be on the way to a younger, wrinkle-free appearance.

With our collection of non-invasive cosmetic procedures, our aesthetic team can help you look and feel your best – and essentially turn back the clock for a younger looking appearance! The first step in experiencing Ultherapy’s wonderful results is to schedule a consultation at one of our offices. Here, we will review your unique circumstances and goals to determine if Ultherapy is best for you. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please fill out this contact form. A member of our team will be in touch with you shortly. To reach us directly, please call us at (650) 254-1200 (Mountain View); (408) 831-6229 (San Jose); or (831) 656-9331 (Carmel-by-the-Sea) for an initial consultation.

“Is That A Wrinkle?”

Just like finding our first gray hair, we all remember when we spotted our first wrinkle. It might’ve felt like a monumental moment. To remedy the situation, maybe you turned to expensive topicals or multi-stepped skin care products. Well, at least that’s what the products promised. But, these topicals almost always leave much to be desired. That’s because these products don’t go far enough to reach the operative layers in the skin – the layers responsible for keeping your complexion youthful. Over time, the wrinkles deepen, and the skin care products’ promises remain just that – promises. 

Deep in your skin, fibroblast cells readily produce collagen molecules to repair and replace damaged collagen fibers. These fibers are strong and tensile, but only when we’re young. As we get older and our body’s systems slow down, those fibroblast cells can’t keep up with demand. So, collagen fibers go unsupported. They lose their tensile strength and go lax which leads to skin wrinkling, sagging, and folds. To reverse signs of aging, these fibroblast cells need to be stimulated into producing more collagen. Even the most effective topicals don’t reach far enough to do this. 

Why Choose Ultherapy

Ultrasound technology has been used in medicine for decades. It has helped doctors across disciplines treat a wide array of conditions. Recently, we have discovered the cosmetic benefits of ultrasound waves and how they can activate collagen production. Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound which is much lower energy than the kinds used in other medical procedures.[1] Ultherapy is a hand-held device that is applied to the skin’s surface to reach the deepest layers. The device pulses ultrasound waves through the skin and into the dermal tissue. These waves create a thermal effect in the tissue, gently heating the dermis to 140°F.  At this temperature, collagen fibers begin to contract, resulting in shorter and thicker bands.[1] This contraction causes the overlying skin to lift and tighten while over time, an influx of new collagen fibers fortifies your results to last for years to come. 

Non-Invasive & Non-Surgical

Other popular facial rejuvenating procedures include incisions and subsequent scarring after you’ve fully healed. These procedures also use anesthesia to keep you sedated during surgery. Anesthesia comes with its own risks and is not suitable for patients with certain medical conditions, so not all qualify. But, with Ultherapy, you don’t have to worry about incisions, scars, or special precautions. Ultherapy is designed for patients of all ages and is perfect for those who want refreshing results without the hassle of general surgery. 

Simple Procedure

An Ultherapy session takes place in one of our private treatment rooms. An aesthetic nurse will have you lie down and will apply an ultrasound gel onto the target areas. They will take the Ultherapy wand to treat your face, neck, and decolletage area with the Ultherapy device. They will pass the device over your wrinkles and loose skin. You may feel a sensation of heating or tingling. An Ultherapy procedure takes around 90 minutes to complete. Afterward, you will be free to resume your daily routine.

Outstanding Results

Following your Ultherapy session, you might see early results. Loose skin feels tighter and wrinkles are less noticeable. Over the next couple of days and weeks, your dermal cells will use the uptick in collagen production to continually improve these results. 

Is It Right For You?

If you are interested in Ultherapy, the first step is to schedule a personal consultation at one of our locations. Here, we will determine if Ultherapy is best for you. While other cosmetic procedures like lasers can achieve similar results, they aren’t safe for all skin types. These devices often leave pigmented lines or dots on darker skin. But because of its internal heating effect, Ultherapy’s ultrasound waves are safe for all skin types![3] 

Other cosmetic procedures like injections or peels might be better suited for your unique conditions and desired results. A consultation at Wunderbar will help discern which services are right for you. 

A Consultation at Wunderbar

If this is your first time with us, we will begin with a new patient interview and a review of your recent medical history. Then, we’ll go over your cosmetic concerns and determine which procedure or combination of procedures is right for you. This will help us create your personalized treatment plan. At the end of your consultation, we will give you a list of preparatory steps. Follow these to ensure a smooth procedure followed by optimal results. 

Before Ultherapy

Because Ultherapy is a simple, non-invasive procedure, required preparations are limited. We recommend coming into your treatment with a clean face (no skin care or makeup products). Before your session, you may take pain-reducing or anti-inflammatory medications if instructed by your doctor beforehand. 

What Does After-Care Look Like?

After your Ultherapy appointment, your skin might be a little tender. Any pain or swelling will subside in the coming days. During this time, please drink plenty of water and eat healthy, nutrient-rich foods. Also, be sure to take care of your skin by applying sunscreen when you’re outside. Ultherapy may take more than one session to see your desired results. We’ll give you further instructions during your follow-up sessions. 


As new collagen molecules repair and replace damaged fibers, the skin gradually recoils, smoothing away wrinkles and tightening loose skin. As more collagen molecules are continuously produced, results improve. Because these results are supported by your body’s own organic molecules, your results will remain for years to come. Future Ultherapy sessions will only further your results.

Other Non-Invasive Rejuvenating Services

At Wunderbar, our comprehensive list of cosmetic procedures is sure to have the right one for you. If Ultherapy doesn’t sound quite right, we have many more that can treat wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. One of the most popular solutions for doing all of that and more is Juvederm fillers. 

Juvederm Fillers

Using a formulated solution of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm facial fillers are designed to smooth away wrinkles and restore areas of volume loss. Being a hygroscopic molecule, hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This characteristic is what allows the different Juvederm fillers to vary in viscosity. Thicker fillers address deeper lines and areas of volume loss while less viscous fillers allow for a more spread-out rejuvenation. Hyaluronic acid is a natural molecule in our skin and, like collagen, its supply wanes with age. Because it’s organic to your body, it will naturally absorb over the next 18 months

How Much Does Ultherapy Cost On The Central Coast?

The cost of Ultherapy depends on the extent of your treatment. We have to factor in the number of areas treated as well as how many sessions you need to see your ideal results. We will discuss and determine all of this during your consultation. If you have any questions, feel free to call us at (650) 254-1200 (Mountain View); (408) 831-6229 (San Jose); or (831) 656-9331 (Carmel-by-the-Sea) for an initial consultation.


Is Ultherapy FDA approved?

Yes! In 2009, Ultherapy was the first non-surgical skin tightening device to be FDA approved. 

Does Ultherapy hurt?

Patients report feeling a heating and tingling sensation below the dermis but don’t report any pain.

Can Ultherapy treat jowls?

Yes! Jowls are created when skin loses its elasticity which causes underlying fat pads to shift lower on the face. Ultherapy helps to lift and tighten loose skin, creating a more noticeable jawline.
