Ultherapy Facelift and Necklift in Los Angeles


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a board-certified plastic surgeon and an expert in facial plastic surgery. He has expertise in cosmetic rejuvenation of the face and neck using the latest advancements in aesthetic surgery and cosmetic dermatology. In his Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice, he offers Ultherapy (HIFU) as an alternative to a traditional facelift or necklift for those patients with mild to moderate laxity of the skin who desire a less-invasive alternative to surgery.

Ultherapy uses high intensity focused ultrasound to tighten the inner tissue matrix of the face and neck. Patients notice an immediate improvement followed by progressive tightness in the tissue that improves over 6 to 8 weeks following therapy. Unlike Thermage, Ultherapy uses ultrasound rather than bipolar radiofrequency.

Our Beverly Hills center is equipped with many options to improve your skin tone, tighten muscle and fascial laxity, and give you a youthful glow with significant downtime or recovery. Patients are able to return to normal activity within minutes and have longterm benefits from Ultherapy. Schedule a consultation with Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian to discuss options for Ultherapy.


Ultherapy is an excellent option for men and women with mild to moderate skin laxity and looseness of the neck and face. The most beneficial aspect of Ultherapy is that it can be used for both preventative as well as corrective face and neck tightening. If you have noticed progressive laxity in the face and neck and do not feel that surgery is the right option for you, Ultherapy may be your solution.

Dr. Karamanoukian has ten years of expertise in Ultherapy treatment and can help you decide which Ultherapy protocol is right for you. During your consultation, he will evaluate your skin laxity and fascial laxity to determine the relevance of Ultherapy in your cosmetic treatment.


Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that can tighten the neck and face using ultrasound. Although some patients may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, most will gauge the discomfort as tolerable during the length of the procedure. There is minimal residual post-treatment pain or recovery.
On the day of your procedure, Dr. Karamanoukian and his team will use a topical anesthetic cream followed by application of the Ultherapy procedure. Typical treatment time is 45 to 90 minutes, depending on the areas to be treated.


Ultherapy High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatments have minimal to no downtime. After your treatment, you will notice mild redness on the skin that usually subsides with time. It is completely normal to experience some mild tingling of the skin and patients are advised to resume normal physical activity thereafter.
If you feel that your body has lost its youthful ability to regenerate collagen because of age or stress, our Ultherapy protocol may include skin-stimulating therapies including NanoRF to invigorate the skin.
Most patients will notice an improvement immediately with full results seen six to eight weeks thereafter.
