Announcing 2 Million Ultherapy Treatments Worldwide


Merz Aesthetics, the world’s largest dedicated medical aesthetics business, is excited to announce Ultherapy® has reached 2 million treatments worldwide. Ultherapy is the first and only, non-invasive ultrasound treatment FDA-cleared for lifting of skin on the neck, chin and brow and improving lines and wrinkles on the décolletage with real-time visualization.This milestone is significant because it generates confidence for medical aesthetics practitioners and consumers on a treatment that has been performed over 2 million times and continues to be the gold standard in non-invasive skin lifting and tightening.1,2 Merz Aesthetics is celebrating this exciting milestone with the launch of its “2 Million and Lifting” global campaign that honors Ultherapy’s real-time visualization and unique features that promote safe, proven and personalized results. Ultherapy stimulates collagen and elastin production for natural-looking results that improve over time, from a single session, without downtime by using micro-focused ultrasound technology that targets three specific depths.

“As we grow old, collagen breaks down, resulting in loss of skin strength and elasticity that leads to visible signs of aging skin”, stated Sabrina Fabi MD, dermatologist and associate research director at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology. “Today, patients are looking for personalized non-surgical skin lifting and tightening solutions; Ultherapy is my preferred choice, because it is a safe and proven treatment that allows me to see below the skin’s surface, in real time, to deliver the treatment where it’s most beneficial and stimulate my patients’ natural collagen production, for taut and natural results in just one session, with no downtime”.

The “2 Million and Lifting” campaign features custom marketing assets for practitioners’ offices and social media content to highlight the fundamental role they played in reaching 2 million treatments. It will also encourage consumers to talk to their provider about Ultherapy’s proven results and celebrate with us.

“We are thrilled to celebrate this momentous milestone for Ultherapy, which provides a lift for those who want natural-looking results through customizable treatments,” said Bob Rhatigan, CEO, Merz Aesthetics.“Ultherapy is an integral part of the Merz Aesthetics mission of fueling confidence by helping people look better, feel better and live better.”
