The board-certified dermatologists of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta often have patients ask what they can do about lax facial and neck skin that doesn’t require the downtime of traditional facelift surgery. In addition to cosmetic injectables and fillers such as Botox® and Belotero® balance that temporarily relieve wrinkles and volume loss of the face; Ulthera® non-surgical skin tightening can address sagging skin and wrinkles around the neck area.
Despite a proper skincare routine, the neck skin is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. The advanced Ultherapy® technology uses ultrasound waves to tighten and lift loose skin. With different settings available, this procedure is tailored to the patient’s unique concerns. Heat energy from the ultrasound waves tones the deeper loose layers of skin while stimulating collagen production. Ulthera® is great for patients who are not quite ready for surgical facial procedures and is safe for a variety of skin tones and textures.
Since this treatment may cause temporary redness it’s important to avoid direct sunlight while your body heals. This procedure is performed in-office in approximately 60 to 90 minutes and patients can return to their daily activities after treatment. Optimal results usually appear two to three months after the first treatment. Ultherapy® is FDA-cleared for treatment of the neck, jawline, and brow.
