New! FDA-cleared Ultherapy.
Ultherapy uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. Ultherapy treats the deep layers of skin tissue without disturbing the surface of the skin. 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 on the 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*
Aging Eyelids and Brow
Aging Face and Neck

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 important 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, which allows 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, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin 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 surface of the skin. Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery, and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, initiating the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
Ultherapy stimulates collagen growth in the skin tissue at three different layers. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jump starting the regenerative process that produces fresh, 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 noninvasive solution for combating gravity and skin laxity.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months* as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, 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.
