Ultherapy® Treatment in Atlanta
A growing number of our patients are asking for non-surgical alternatives to help them rejuvenate their appearance. For patients who are just beginning to notice jowls or sagging skin around the brow, eyes, or neck, we often recommend Ultherapy.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that can do a beautiful job to lift and firm skin, counteract early signs of aging, and refine facial features. Just one Ultherapy treatment can help you take several years off your appearance and even postpone the need for facelift surgery—without surgery or downtime.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production in the skin’s deeper layers, which helps your skin rebuild from the inside out. How can sound tighten skin? Ultrasound is a form of concentrated energy. When delivered through the skin, this energy creates a thermal response that triggers new collagen production.
Following an Ultherapy treatment, skin gradually becomes firmer, smoother, and tighter as more and more collagen is produced. Because your skin has actually improved at a structural level, results look completely natural and can last for up to a year or longer before any touch-up is needed.
Benefits of Ultherapy
- Treatments are performed in our office, with no pre- or post-treatment work required
- No downtime is required; you can return to normal activity right away
- It’s easy to keep treatments under the radar, as results appear gradually over 2 to 3 months
- Many patients require only 1 or 2 treatments to achieve their desired result
- Results can last 1 year or longer
- Ultherapy is safe for any skin type
Who Is a good candidate for Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy can help you rejuvenate your appearance if you are experiencing early signs of aging, particularly mild to moderate skin laxity on the brow, around the eyelids, on your neck or chest, or along the lower cheeks and jawline. It can also be an excellent option to achieve moderate improvements if you would like to refine your appearance but are not ready for facelift surgery.
No non-surgical treatment, including Ultherapy, can achieve the same results as a surgical facelift. If you have pronounced jowls, very loose, sagging skin or extensive wrinkling, you will likely need a facelift to achieve satisfying results. Our Atlanta plastic surgeons will help you understand what results you can expect from Ultherapy vs. facelift surgery—and any other treatment options—during your consultation.
How Ultherapy treatments work
After reviewing your treatment goals, our licensed aesthetician will apply ultrasound gel and place the Ultherapy applicator on your skin. She will first use ultrasound imaging to determine optimal points to focus the ultrasound energy that will induce the collagen-building process. Once this step is complete, she will begin the Ultherapy treatment.
You will feel tiny pulses of energy under your skin; this means the collagen building process has begun! Some patients find this a little uncomfortable, but any discomfort only lasts during the pulses of treatment.
Procedure time will depend on your individual treatment plan. A face and neck treatment will take about 60 to 90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.see more patient reviews stars
