Ultherapy® - A Non-Invasive Skin Lift
One of the latest advancements in aesthetic science is Ultherapy®, a non-invasive skin lift. Without using cosmetic surgery, Ultherapy® sends ultrasonic energy to the dermis. This procedure stimulates the body’s natural response to promote the development of new collagen cells and strengthen weaker collagen cells. Patients start to see the results right away, but for best results, it takes the course of two to three months to see refreshed, tighter, and smoother skin on your face, neck, and chest.
About the Treatment
Although this is a non-invasive alternative to a facelift, Ultherapy® does not replicate the exact same results of the procedure. Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure approved by Health Canada for lifting skin on the neck, chin, brow, and decolletage. Overall, it is a safer alternative for patients who prefer a non-surgical option.
How it Works
First, we will cleanse the targeted areas of any oil or residue. Then, an ultrasound gel will be applied to your skin. An ultrasound device will be placed against your skin and deeply penetrate the tissues with ultrasound energy and gentle heat. This treatment will help lift and tighten loose skin while stimulating the production of collagen to ensure that your skin maintains a fresh and youthful look.

Is Ultherapy® safe?
This procedure has been approved by both the FDA and Health Canada after multiple clinical studies and treatments were performed safely throughout the globe.
How is Ultherapy® different from other cosmetic procedures?
Through the use of focused ultrasound waves, Ultherapy® is used to stimulate new collagen cells below the skin’s surface. It takes time for the new collagen cells to appear, and results take approximately two to three months or even six months to appear.
This procedure takes 30 – 90 minutes with no downtime, and is also the only procedure that utilizes ultrasound imaging. This allows practitioners to see the layers of the skin that is targeted during the procedure to ensure precise application.
Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?
Ultherapy® does not replace a facelift but it treats the deeper foundational layer of the skin that is typically handled in cosmetic surgery. Ultherapy® is a great option for those who don’t want surgery or would like to extend the results of cosmetic surgery.
How does Ultherapy® differentiate itself from laser treatments?
Using sound energy, Ultherapy® bypasses the superficial levels of skin that cannot be reached by other non-invasive procedures. Since lasers rely on light energy, it cannot reach deeper layers and is not licensed by Health Canada to lift skin.
How long do results last?
Since we all have unique skin, consulting with Dr. Boulos will give you a clearer and customized plan tailored to your needs. Since Ultherapy® stimulates the patient’s collagen production, the rate at which results last depends on each unique individual. Even though the treatment produces new collagen internally, the time it takes for it to appear externally is dependent on the individual’s aging process.
What does Ultherapy® feel like?
You’ll feel a tingling and heat sensation as the device glides through the surface of your skin.
I have been a customer for over 5 years and truly would not trust anyone else. Dr Boulos really cares about her customers long term goals and will go out of her way to educate her customers on the treatments they are receiving so you understand the full process.
I have referred her to many friends and family who are also repeat customers and are blown away by her professionalism and experience.
Dr. Boulos is truly one of a kind. As a physician it goes without saying that she is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, but her most endearing quality is the warm personal connection she makes with each & every patient she sees. She takes the time to advise on all things health & beauty related.
From the effects of internal inflammatory issues related to skin health all the way to superficial aesthetics, she guides her patients from start to finish. I have seen her starring at patient before and after pictures, constantly evaluating and analyzing how she can improve the results, because she constantly strives to be better. Her spa is a reflection of her personality, elegant warm & welcoming!

I went to Dr. Boulos with the intention to get botox. After having the most honest conversation, she recommended how important it was that I treat the cystic acne I did not know I had. I was almost in tears in her office and was fearful I would develop scaring on my face.
Thankfully, she immediately had a plan for me to complete acid peel facials and sent me home with some skin care products. No word of a lie, within a week I was able to see results in my skin with the products she gave me. If you're struggling with your skin and want to see someone who is going to be honest and provide you with the best, you need to go see her. I can't even begin to explain how grateful I am that I decided to go to her!
I’ve been seeing Dr. Boulos for a year or so now. From the very beginning she and all the staff have always been extremely professional and welcoming. I love the products, facials and skin treatments offered.
She alway answers my questions and makes me feel like she genuinely cares about her clients. I highly recommend this medical spa, you will be in good hands.
Such a beautiful and clean spa! I’ve been seeing Dr. Boulos for a few years now for Botox, fillers, and facials. I’ll admit I’m not the best with the needles but she makes me feel so comfortable and puts up with my craziness.
She is very knowledgeable and makes the best decisions for you with no pressure to do anything right away. Her staff is also very accommodating and kind, they are wonderful at what they do.
