Ultherapy, from Ulthera Inc. is marketed for ultrasonic skin tightening using high intensity focused ultrasound. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical face and neck treatment, designed to smooth, tone and tighten the skin through the stimulation of new collagen. It can be used to give an "uplifting" effect to the face and neck and can lift the brows, as well as tighten loose skin around the jowls and improve the appearance of a double chin

It was first given U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) clearance in 2009 after performing well in clinical trials with over 100,000 procedures performed worldwide. One of these studies, an efficacy study at North Western University in 2007, demonstrated a clinically significant brow lift in 89% of the patients treated and led to Ulthera’s first FDA indication. It is the first and only non-invasive technology to receive an FDA indication for ‘lift’.
