Ultherapy® Skin Tightening in the Tacoma & South Hill, WA area
Ultherapy® is an amazing new procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift and tighten loose skin on the eyebrow, neck, and under the chin. The result is a facelift without surgery (or rather an “uplift”). It is absolutely non-invasive and does not break the skin. Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these particularly hard-to-treat areas of the face. Over 200,000 patients have benefited from Ultherapy®.
We offer Ultherapy® to all residents in Puyallup, Tacoma & South Hill and surrounding cities. Unlike other facilities offered Ultherapy® treatments, Dr. Domondon is officially certified and trained in Ultherapy® and can maximize results. Unlike other facilities, Dr. Domondon offers other treatments that, when combined with Ultherapy, can make the results even more dramatic.

How does Ultherapy® work?
Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology to target the deep structural skin tissues where collagen resides. The handpiece bypasses the surface of the skin, unlike lasers which penetrate the skin from the outside-in. Ultherapy® works from the inside-out to lift and tighten the skin. No cutting, no incisions, absolutely non-invasive!
The procedure uses a smooth ultrasound device that is placed on your skin. This handpiece allows the practitioner to “see” the area to be treated. That same device is also used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin—the same foundational layer that a surgical facelift addresses. Your body reacts to this energy by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen, which results in a tightening and gradual lifting of the skin. Your results will be a youthful look and a form-fitting shape with the skin tightening and lifting from Ultherapy®.
Before and After
Ultherapy® vs Face Lift
While Ultherapy® is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those not ready to go under the knife. Think of Ultherapy® as an “uplift” as opposed to a “face lift.”
The best candidates are those whose skin has “relaxed” to the point of looking and feeling less firm. These areas are usually the skin on the eyebrows, the neck, and under the chin. Those in their 30’s experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity, those who are younger but want to “stay ahead of the game” with skin tightening, and those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery are also good candidates.
How long does an Ultherapy® session take?
A typical Ultherapy® session takes around 60-90 minutes (1 to 1.5 hours), but it does depend on the area and the plan determined. The length of time needed will be determined at your consultation.
What happens during an Ultherapy® session?
During the procedure, the skin is cleansed and the specific areas are identified. An ultrasound gel is applied to the smooth handpiece and is placed upon your skin. Focused ultrasound energy bypasses the surface of your skin, and is delivered to pre-planned depths within the tissue below to stimulate collagen growth.
Since Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment, there is no downtime and you can return to your normal daily activities immediately. Your skin may appear flushed right after the treatment, but any redness should disappear within a few hours.
