Ultherapy® Skin Tightening at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.
Facelift and neck lift surgeries are excellent procedures for individuals who would like to reduce the amount of sagging skin around the face and neck that causes jowls, wrinkles, and more. However, for those who may not be ready for surgery or who only have mild to moderate facial skin sagging, surgery may not be an option. Atlanta Plastic Surgery is happy to provide those patients with another option: Ultherapy® Non-Surgical Skin Tightening.
Ultherapy® works by using ultrasound technology to target the damaged deeper layers of tissue that have lost the suppleness of youth. Low levels of ultrasound energy penetrate the calculated depth of tissue to heat the targeted area, utilizing the body’s own healing response to firm and tighten areas of loose skin.
Results continue to emerge as the ultrasound waves stimulate collagen production, which will enhance results as time goes on. The best part is that downtime is minimal, so patients can return to work and other activities immediately.
Most patients notice results after one treatment with full results after two to three months. Depending on your situation and cosmetic goals, more treatments may be necessary. Candidates for Ultherapy® Skin Tightening include individuals whose skin has begun to sag as a result of age or dramatic weight loss. Used for areas like the brow line, sagging eyelid skin, lower face, and neck, Ultherapy® can provide similar results to a facelift for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity.
Individuals with more advanced signs of aging or drastic skin damage from smoking may not be candidates for Ultherapy®. It’s best to schedule a consultation to determine your candidacy for the treatment.
