3 ways to identify the authentic Ultherapy®
What should I look for to confirm it is an authentic Ultherapy® System?
There’s a reason Ultherapy® is the Gold standard for ultrasound skin lifting and tightening around the globe. We are dedicated to providing you with a clinically proven, safe and effective Ultherapy® treatment.
So, before seeking treatment, it’s important to do your research. If opting for a non-surgical ultrasound lift, make sure you’re getting an authentic Ultherapy® treatment – the only Non-surgical skin tightening and lifting device with real-time visualisation to lift your neck, chin and brow, and improve fine lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
DON’T TAKE RISKS WITH COUNTERFEIT TREATMENTS
The success and popularity of Ultherapy® have resulted in several counterfeit devices that are putting unsuspecting patients at risk with their unverified promises. These counterfeits are untested, potentially unsafe devices that might do more harm than good.
With many counterfeit treatments, energy is delivered at inconsistent levels and depths, which put patients at risk. Ultrasound energy delivered too intensely and too close to the surface of the skin can result in burns to the treated area. Conversely, energy delivered sporadically or at too low a level (or not at all) may result in a less-than-desirable outcome – or no result at all.

WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR TO CONFIRM A REAL ULTHERA® SYSTEM?
The best way to ensure that you are going to receive an authentic treatment is to visit a certified Ultherapy® Treatment provider.
However, there are other ways you can tell if you are receiving an authentic Ultherapy® Treatment:
The Ulthera® System uses real-time visualization to know precisely if the appropriate area is being treated. When the transducer (a component used by the practitioner on your skin) moves, the ultrasound image on the screen will move. Beware of counterfeit products that use a static image or an ultrasound video on loop.
Comparatively, the real Ulthera system has distinguishable differences from the counterfeit devices. Pay special attention to the Amplify II Software seal found on the display panel.
