New! FDA-cleared Ultherapy.
Ultherapy uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin without surgery or downtime naturally. Ultherapy treats the deep layers of skin tissue without disturbing the skin’s surface. The Rhett Women’s Center Aesthetics team is certified to provide treatments to the FDA-cleared areas of the neck, brow, and under the chin.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and brow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher look on these common telltale aging areas.
Conditions treated by Ultherapy*

Loose Sagging Skin
Ultrasound imaging allows our providers to see where the treatment energy will be delivered. Focused Ultrasound energy does the work that only surgery previously could achieve. Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck, and chest. Ultrasound is an essential diagnostic tool used throughout our gynecology services at Rhett Women’s Center. It has been used throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as effective in clinical studies* and in over a million treatments worldwide.
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, allowing practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
How Does Ultherapy Build New Collagen?
“Ultherapy is uniquely able to deliver one very effective treatment to produce skin tightening results. One and done. Unlike lasers, radiofrequency, surgery, and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the skin’s surface to the muscle. As a result, it delivers the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right temperature.” – Lynda Avera, ARNP.
The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the skin’s surface. Unlike lasers, radiofrequency, surgery, and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the skin’s surface to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the correct depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, initiating the regenerative process of new collagen.
Ultherapy stimulates collagen growth in the skin tissue in three different layers. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, starting the regenerative process that produces new collagen.
What results can I expect from Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a no-downtime, one powerful treatment that delivers measurable results over time. Known for creating natural results, Ultherapy is a non-invasive solution for combating gravity and skin laxity.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the actual results appear over 2−3 months* as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin, and brow and smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the facelift results, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery or those who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
