Our San Jose Ultherapy® treatment is a non-surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the skin of the neck, chin, jowls, decolletage, and brow line. The procedure uses ultrasound technology, which has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years, to heat the deep layers of the skin without applying heat to the skin’s surface. This means that no recovery time is needed after an Ultherapy treatment because it does not cut or disrupt the surface of the skin.


The ultrasound energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the natural regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen and elastin, so the anti-aging effects continue for months. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

If you only have excess fat under your chin, you may be able to get the results you want with Kybella®, which is an injection therapy specifically for improving a double chin. During your consultation, we can advise you which treatments can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Of course, if you have significant sagging in the lower portion of the face, a surgical facelift and/or neck lift may be the best option for you.

Your Ultherapy Procedure

While Ultherapy is not painful, the treatment can be uncomfortable. There are many ways to help you manage any discomfort you may experience. We can apply a topical anesthetic 60 minutes before your procedure, and you can take non-prescription pain medication one hour before we begin Ultherapy. The Ultherapy machine can be modulated to adapt the treatment to your specific tolerance levels.

Our Palo Alto Ultherapy treatment can take a half hour up to three hours depending on how many areas you wish to treat. Our board-certified facial plastic surgeons pass a handheld device over the areas to be tightened. They can see an image on a screen of the layers of tissue while you are treated, ensuring that your treatment is delivered to the most beneficial levels of the skin.

You will see results immediately, as the areas that were treated will be tighter. This will continue to improve further as your body produces more collagen.

After about six months, you will decide if you need a second treatment to achieve the results you want. Most patients return for Ultherapy once per year to maintain the tightened appearance.

We believe the best anti-aging regime addresses collagen remodeling at all levels of the skin. Whether it’s the deep, targeting energy delivery of Ultherapy, the bulk heating at the mid-depths of Thermage, and/or the surface refinement and collage stimulation of Fraxel or Microneedling. We can help you determine which combination treatment protocol would be right for you to help you look your best now and into the future.

Recovering from Ultherapy

Because Ultherapy does not damage the surface skin, no recovery time is required. You can go back to work or other activities immediately. While you may have some minor redness, bruising, and swelling for a day or two, you can cover it with makeup until it improves. If you wish to find out more, contact us today and schedule a consultation for arguably the best treatment of Ultherapy San Jose has to offer.

Even with social distancing, we're still here for you.

As the current situation with COVID-19 is rapidly evolving, we are continuing to make decisions regarding our practice to keep ourselves and our community healthy. As the future of this virus is uncertain, it is mandated by Santa Clara County Public Health Department Officials that all non-essential businesses close their doors and shelter in place.

Because of this region-wide order, our office will be closed as of Tuesday, March 17th, 2020 and will be rescheduling all non-emergent treatments, follow up appointments and surgeries after Tuesday, April 7th, 2020.⁣ All future in-office events for March and April have been postponed until further notice.

To those patients that need to be seen urgently for post-operative or emergent appointments - please call our office phone number. Your call will be forwarded to an employee that can best help you as we will still have remote access to our schedule. They will make the necessary arrangements to ensure you receive the proper care. ⁣

We are confident that we will make it through this and become a stronger and smarter community because of it. Yes, most people do not die from COVID-19 and many can be asymptomatic - but the sooner we isolate from one another, the sooner we can make sure those statistics do not change.⁣

As physicians, we hold health to the utmost importance so we please ask those of you who can - work from home when possible, do not go to restaurants or bars, limit your public exposure and be cognizant of those who are sick, elderly or immunocompromised. In this time, we have to not only think of ourselves, but think of those that can be directly affected and do all we can for the sake of our community, our state, and our country.⁣

We do not believe this is a time to panic - but rather the opposite. It is time to be rational and act with extreme purpose. By preventatively closing our doors for the next 3 weeks - we may be helping change the course of a potentially life-changing event in history.⁣

We look forward to a future of health and happiness with you at Cheng Plastic Surgery!⁣

Virtual Consultation

Caring and cautious regards,⁣

Dr. Elbert & Dr. Jacqueline Cheng
