Ultherapy is a non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment that naturally lifts, tightens, and tones the skin through the use of your own collagen, and it’s available now at Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery in Metro Atlanta. Areas that can be treated include the full face, chin, neck, decolletage, eyebrow, knees, and abdomen. Through the use of focused ultrasound energy, Ultherapy lifts and tightens loose skin. It also stimulates the new growth of collagen within the facial tissue’s deeper layers.***
How does new collagen help the skin?
Collagen is a natural protein that maintains our skin’s youthful appearance. During the aging process, the strength of collagen fades and is no longer capable of standing up to the effect of the gravity that pulls the skin downward.
An Ultherapy procedure can produce a thermal effect that creates stronger existing collagen while generating fresh, new collagen. It delivers sound waves deep under the skin to rejuvenate, tighten, and lift loose skin without surgery or negative affects to the skin.
Who Can Benefit from Ultherapy?
Men who are thirty or older with mild to moderate skin laxity are typically the ideal candidates for Ultherapy. However, men who are under thirty and looking to retain their youth or delay the need for cosmetic surgery can also benefit from Ultherapy.
It’s important to note that Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift. Instead, it is a great option for men searching for a non-surgical alternative with no downtime.
Those interested in Ultherapy should schedule a consultation with our Advanced Certified Ultherapist at Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery. Our Advanced Certified Ultherapist will address personal concerns, assess the patient’s skin, and determine whether or not you can benefit from this treatment. Specific preparations or skincare regimens prior to the procedure are not necessary.
What Happens During an Ultherapy Treatment?
Once the area of concern is thoroughly cleansed, the Ultherapist will apply the ultrasound gel and place the treatment applicator against the gel. Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging will then be used to figure out the best placement for the treatment energy.
Next, the ultrasound energy will be focused in the proper areas beneath the skin’s surface. During the procedure, men may experience a warm, prickling feeling as tiny spurts of energy are transferred into the skin. When this occurs, the collagen building process has started.
Depending on the number of areas treated, an Ultherapy treatment can last between 1-3 hours.*
When Will Ultherapy Results Be Noticed?
Shortly after the procedure, most men notice a naturally toned and lifted facial appearance in addition to a slower rate of aging skin. Optimal results are seen 3-6 months after the procedure because collagen production is stimulated over time. To maintain results, yearly touch-up treatments can be done to maintain the results.**
What Side Effects Can Be Expected?
Following an Ultherapy treatment the skin may appear flushed, but any redness will diminish in just a few hours. Some tingling or mild swelling may also occur, but quickly dissipate. Immediately after the procedure, men are free to resume to their normal skin care routine.
What Are the Costs Associated with Ultherapy?
Since Ultherapy is used to treat a number of different areas of a skin, price varies according to the areas you decide to treat.
