“As a clinician, I know it sounds too good to be true, but when you couple the power of Ultherapy with modifications I have developed to the basic technique and my knowledge of the processes of facial aging, we have had near universal satisfaction. Throughout my career I have focused on an understanding of the processes of facial aging and Ulthera has become an integral means of non operative therapy in my practice. ”
Meet Ulthera®—a visionary aesthetic ultrasound—the newest treatment for facial skin tightening. Until now, no single product or procedure could promise to rejuvenate youth non-surgically but Ulthera gives patients the utmost impact in skin tightening and improved skin texture. Through aesthetic ultrasound, sagging brows, lids, neck and jowls are reversed.
Using ultrasound technology, the Ulthera System allows the physician to first visualize then tighten the skin along with deeper soft tissue. In clinical evaluations a lift in the brow line was apparent after just one treatment. Firmer, tighter skin in other areas of the face and neck has been reported. Dr. Kornstein employs his unique protocol which enhances facial shape while minimizing unwanted fat loss. Fat loss is in large part responsible for accelerated aging. Apart from the face and neck area, Dr. Kornstein has further explored the efficacy of using Ulthera successfully for the arms, anterior and posterior axillary folds (bra strap fat), bellies, inner thighs and knees—areas that may not be conducive to surgical intervention.
What makes Ulthera so exciting?
- Ulthera(py) is deeper and more specific than lasers, lights, injections and its predecessors who promised skin tightening. The level of precision and safety is unparalleled without the concern of causing damage to the outer layer of skin.
- Skin contraction and collagen remodeling compliment all aspects of facial rejuvenation. Ulthera can indefinitely delay a facelift while delivering beautiful results that are enjoyed at a fraction of the cost. If a facelift is recommended due to sagging or damaged skin, Ulthera can further refine the surgical rejuvenation.
- Ulthera(py) is safe for all skin types, no matter how dark. Since the technology uses sound waves, there is no risk of hyper or hypo-pigmentation.
- Ulthera was recently FDA approved as a non surgical treatment for browlifts.
- No downtime with immediate results appeals to many patients. Early clinical studies put Ulthera enhancement as lasting 2 years or more.

1:1 with Dr. Kornstein
I view my primary role as being a patient advocate; therefore I must be a critical consumer when it comes to adopting new technologies. Ulthera is in a class by itself. It’s the first innovation that is more fact than hype in improving every patient’s appearance, with no downtime, minimal or no risk and longevity of results. Two groups of people can benefit from Ulthera. The first is those who have lost the 3D contours of youth. I would typically recommend fat grafting. This would restore the contours lost due to skeletal atrophy, and support the skin so it functions well again and take advantage of the stem cell effect which rejuvenates the skin in almost a “Benjamin Button effect.” If you do Ulthera at that point, it will tighten skin and essentially return the skin to its former degree of tightness or youthful configuration. Ulthera serves to tighten the skin around newly created contour—giving a dramatically enhanced result when compared with fat grafting alone. The second group of patients suffers from a combination of both the loss of 3D contours typical in a youthful face and anti gravity support. When far enough advanced, gravity creates an irresistible pull on the soft tissues that cannot be reversed without a facelift—the lack of anti gravity support has allowed the skin to sag out of position and the only suitable correction is to re elevate the skin to its former position. But even though you have replaced the skin to where it belongs, it does not change the quality of the skin. In this case, Ulthera will tighten along underlying contours that I provide surgically while improving the inherent quality of the skin—a perfect example of surgical and non surgical synergy.

Ultheraphy Procedure Testimonials
“I am looking “tighter, rested, and pretty good for my age!”
As an aesthetic laser technician in NY, it’s my job to keep up on the latest technology. About 6 months ago, I came across an article on Ultherapy and immediately called the rep to see if I could have a demo for the purpose of bringing it into my practice. I was told it is only available through physicians. The rep told me Dr. Andrew Kornstein was achieving the best results and highest patient satisfaction. Coincidentally, I had been a former patient of Dr. Kornstein’s and decided to see him again and “try on” the treatment for myself.
During the consultation he described what I could expect and I had the full face procedure. Six weeks later, I saw no improvements and called Dr. Kornstein to tell him my disappointment. He told me it was impossible not to see improvements, but they sometimes took 2-3 months. Since I knew Dr. Kornstein, I decided to trust and be patient.
Today, several months post treatment, I am looking “tighter, rested, and pretty good for my age! Ultherapy has done exactly what Dr. Kornstein said it would do. It’s the perfect answer for those who don’t want or need a facelift but want to look younger and refreshed. My nasal labial folds are diminished, my skin texture is better and my pore size is improved. I just look better. The results are amazing. I wish I could do my whole body!
On a personal note, Dr. Kornstein is a very gifted surgeon with an extremely keen eye. He is exacting in his work and pays attention to details. When so many plastic surgeons these days are nothing more than mediocre doctors living behind a smokescreen of a great publicist, Dr. Kornstein is the real deal. He’s approachable, accessible, and nice. He is one of few who stands behind his Hippocratic Oath and is genuinely concerned for all those in his care.
“Thanks for making me feel so confident…”
I’ve already had 2 courses of the Ulthera, but i wanted to tell you that I just went to my 30th high school reunion, and I have to say, I really really really looked better than anyone, facially speaking! I was silently thanking you the whole time, and I felt so good. Thanks for making me feel so confident – it was the first reunion I’ve ever been to, and I had a great time. Your talent, and Karol’s, are extraordinary and I would recommend you a thousand times over.
I saw and felt a huge difference on the way home and it keeps getting better!
I saw and felt a huge difference on the way home and it keeps getting better! You were right! I referred a pilates client today and she will be calling for a consultation for Ulthera soon. I will keep referring people, this is an answer to prayers! Trish rocks! and of course so do you A.K.
Thank you both so much! I can’t wait to see what it looks like over the next few weeks! Yay!
