Ultherapy®View More Before & Afters
Are you ready to try an innovative cosmetic procedure that can rejuvenate your youthful look without the need for invasive surgery? Ultherapy is a type of non-surgical, non-invasive lift that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. It can be a great option if you aren’t ready for a facelift yet but still need something to improve your look.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger and Schlessinger MD are proud to have been the first clinic in Nebraska to offer the Ultherapy skin tightening procedure for lifting and toning loose, lax skin. With no downtime, your skin will gradually reflect a more refreshed, uplifting appearance over a series of treatments.
I had Ultherapy and it was one of the best things I’ve done for myself! The procedure itself was not unpleasant at all – very minor discomfort. The results are fabulous and I can already see the difference! Dr. Schlessinger and his staff are artists! I am so happy with the outcome. I would highly recommend Dr. Schlessinger.

What is Ultherapy Skin Tightening?
Ultherapy utilizes powerful radiofrequency energy to deliver heat to the deep layers of your skin. It makes use of focused ultrasound, much like the ultrasound used in pregnancy imaging, and is delivered via a wand held over the top of the skin. The ultrasound waves are guided into the deeper layer of skin where collagen is present.
The ultrasound waves heat the collagen and break it down. Gradually, over the next few months, your body comes to the rescue and stimulates the tissue to produce new collagen. Because new collagen crisscrosses like a bridge to create a revitalized structure under your skin (rebuilding the very structures that are breaking down over time), your facial areas and neck can be tightened and uplifted as these new structures take shape. With this lifting and tightening procedure, you can go about your day after a single in-office procedure lasting just an hour or so.
What to Expect During Your Ultherapy Treatment
Ultherapy is the ideal solution for younger patients who want to refresh their look, but aren’t ready for traditional surgery. The time it takes to perform the procedure varies depending on the treatment area and the amount of correction needed to achieve the desired results. A full-face rejuvenation will generally last about an hour, a half-hour for the neck, and 15 minutes for the eyes. Ultherapy skin tightening stimulates new collagen buildup, improving your skin from the inside out, around your eyes, cheeks, and upper neck.
You’ll feel a sensation as the energy stimulates the deep layers of the skin. The Ultherapy treatment is very precise and shown to be safe in clinical studies. It acts specifically on the treatment area and does not cause damage to the surface of the skin.
Who Makes A Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
Both men and women who desire non-surgical skin tightening treatments can safely undergo Ultherapy. Ideal candidates for the procedure are in good physical health, have a fair amount of skin elasticity, notice moderate signs of facial aging, and have realistic expectations for the procedure. We’ll evaluate your skin and discuss the details of the procedure in more depth during your consultation.
How Much Does Ultherapy Cost?
The cost of an Ultherapy treatment varies depending on the extent of correction required to achieve the desired results in the treatment area. During your consultation, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment. Since Ultherapy is a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by insurance and payments will come out of pocket. In order to help make it affordable, we offer flexible financing options to help assist with payment.
