Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center in Atlanta, GA is pleased to provide a non-invasive treatment that lifts eyebrows, skin on the neck and under the chin as well as the décolletage. Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin by using the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin.
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it is a clinically proven alternative for patients who are not ready for surgery and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Candidates for Ultherapy
- Mild to moderate skin laxity
- Lowered eyebrow line
- Loose skin on the neck
- Sagging under the chin
- Lines or wrinkles on the chest
Benefits of Ultherapy
- Builds new collagen
- Stimulates collagen production by ultrasound energy without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin
- Bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature
- No downtime with natural results
How Many Treatments are Needed?
Just one non-invasive Ultherapy treatment helps counteract the effects of time, gravity and sun exposure without downtime; however, some patients need an additional treatment for optimal results.
How Long Do the Results of Ultherapy Last?
Because skin continues to age after treatment, future touch-ups may be needed. Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest.
About the Procedure
After identifying the specific areas to be treated, ultrasound gel is applied and the smooth treatment applicator is placed against the skin. Dr. Byrd will use ultrasound imaging to first see deep within the skin to determine optimal placement of the treatment energy and then deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface. During treatment, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered. The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Aftercare and Recovery
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
