Ultherapy - Nonsurgical Skin Tightening in Atlanta
Ultherapy is the most consistently reliable skin tightening and skin lifting device currently available on the market. Ultherapy is nonsurgical skin tightening and skin lifting using ultrasound energy. This tightens the deeper layers of the skin (the same layer tightened during a facelift) and the results then last 2-5 years. Because there is no downtime, no incisions, no recovery, no redness, and because it can tighten your skin up to 40-50%, Ultherapy has become the most popular skin tightening or lifting procedure in Atlanta.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin (the same layer tightened in a facelift) which stimulates your body to produce collagen in response. It takes your body 3-4 months to make the collagen, but once created, it creates a tightening and lifting effect that can last 2-5 years. Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gradually lift the eyebrow, tighten under the chin, on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and decolletage.
Am I a candidate for Ultherapy?
Individuals between the ages of 25 – 65 with mild to moderate laxity are good candidates. Any person, regardless of skin thickness, age, volume, or ethnicity, is a candidate for Ultherapy. However, individuals with more elasticity do better than those who have very thin, loose skin. Ultherapy can lift and tighten skin but it doesn’t replace a well performed facelift if that’s what is needed. Since we perform both in our office, a consultation can determine which option would be best for you.
How many treatments do I need and how long does Ultherapy take? Is there downtime?
Only one treatment is needed to see a result with the jowls or neck. We recommend 1-3 treatments for areas around the eyes and the mouth since there is considerable movement around these areas to achieve the optimal result.
The treatment takes 20-90 minutes depending on how many areas are treated. The brow or around the mouth may take 20-30 minutes each whereas the lower face or neck area may take 60 minutes.
There is no downtime. Sensitive skin types may have some redness for a couple of hours but otherwise, you can resume your normal exercise regimen and activities after your treatment.
Can it be performed in the summer?
Yes, you can be exposed to the sun immediately after your Ultherapy treatment without restriction. Unlike lasers, peels or IPL treatments, Ultherapy treatments continue to be popular during the summer. Of course, we always prefer that you practice good sun hygiene and use a recommended medical sunblock for your face but this treatment doesn’t keep you from enjoying your summer.
Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?
Ultherapy is perfect for individuals looking for a lifting or a tightening alternative to a facelift without the incisions, recovery, pain, downtime, redness, or bruising. Though it provides tightening and lifting improvement, it doesn’t replace the results of a facelift. If done properly by trained staff in a clinical setting, such as a plastic surgery office, Ultherapy can provide results that reach 30-50% of a surgical facelift result.
How much does Ultherapy cost?
The cost of Ultherapy in Atlanta depends on the areas treated and amount of time it takes to treat these areas. Individuals with moderate or severe laxity will take longer to perform and will need more energy for optimal results.
