Ultherapy® Named “Best Skin Tightening Device” by The Aesthetic Guide

Merz announced today Ultherapy® has been named the “Best Skin Tightening Device” by THE Aesthetic Guide, a leading aesthetic industry publication. Ultherapy® is the only FDA- cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the chest.

THE Aesthetic Industry Awards acknowledge leaders who have developed innovative, cutting edge technologies, techniques and best practices that have been pushing the industry forward. A distinguished panel of expert judges selected top products and services in a broad range of categories.

“My patients are always looking for trusted treatments that will help them look fresher and Ultherapy continues to be a treatment I recommend because it has no downtime and delivers visible results,” said Dr. Patricia Wexler, a New York City-based cosmetic dermatologist who has treated brand ambassador Christie Brinkley with Ultherapy. “The targeted ultrasound technology makes Ultherapy a revolutionary device that allows me to customize treatments to meet the needs of my patients.”

Ultherapy® is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows physicians to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited where it will be most beneficial. The unique technology is supported by more than 50 clinical studies, more than 60 published, peer-reviewed papers and over 100 patents.

“This award is a true testament to Ultherapy’s innovation and proven results,” said Bob Rhatigan, CEO of Merz North America. “Ultherapy is trusted by physicians around the world and continues to be recognized in the industry for its one-of-a-kind clinically-proven technology. We are proud to have celebrated the milestone of one million treatments with Ultherapy earlier this year and look forward to the next million.”
