Dermatology Associates of Atlanta uses the scanning ultrasound first to map out the deeper layers of tissue to determine the depth and areas of treatment needed, tailoring the treatment to each patient’s individual concerns. Then, low levels of focused ultrasound energy are targeted toward the treatment area to heat the predetermined depth of tissue under the skin. The heat energy helps to tone and tighten loose skin while stimulating the production of collagen. By encouraging collagen production, Ultherapy® treatment helps lift and firm loose skin over time for more natural-looking Atlanta Ultherapy® results.
Are there any side effects with this treatment?
The treatment area may appear red following the procedure, and some patients experience swelling, tingling, or tenderness immediately afterward as well. Side effects from Ulthera® are generally mild and temporary.
Is Ultherapy® safe?
Ultrasound technology has been used in the medical field for over 50 years, and Ulthera® is FDA-approved for non-surgical skin tightening. In order to gain FDA approval, Ulthera® was demonstrated and approved as a safe treatment.
Am I a good candidate for Ultherapy®?
Ideal candidates for Ultherapy® include both women and men who are experiencing sagging in the skin under the chin and around the neck. Ultherapy® is not a replacement for surgery in patients with more advanced signs of aging but can help individuals who would like to lift, tone, and tighten areas of loose skin.
