Our Technology

Ulthera, Inc. was founded in 2004 with a purpose to change the aesthetic landscape. Today, we’re the leading innovator of ultrasound technology for medical and aesthetic applications. No other medical device provides similar efficacy to patients without requiring an invasive procedure.

The Ulthera® System is the first and only energy-based device to receive U.S. FDA clearance for a non-invasive aesthetic lift indication. It is used in a procedure known as Ultherapy®, that lifts the skin above the eyebrow, on the neck and under the chin.

We’re constantly striving to improve the utility of the Ulthera platform by developing innovative applications that are compliant with FDA standards, deliver efficacy for patients, and provide value for physicians.

Since our inception, we’ve worked to create an environment that believes in science-focused and time-tested technology. We are leaders in research and development with higher investments in R&D funding and a larger clinical trial pipeline.

Our History

Ulthera’s history began over 14 years ago, after a partnership with Johnson & Johnson formed to develop micro-focused ultrasound for non-invasive treatment of liver cancer. In 2004, Ulthera was established to further develop the technology for the aesthetic space.

After several years of preclinical evaluation and clinical studies, Ulthera received the first FDA de novo clearance for a non-invasive lift indication in 2009. Since then, we’ve grown quickly—with over $100 million in annual revenue and over 350,000 commercial procedures performed worldwide.
