Spotlight on Ultherapy® Facial Skin Tightening
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta uses Ultherapy® Skin Tightening to precisely diagnose and treat a variety of cosmetic needs. This procedure is one our most personalized approaches to skincare and has become a favorite among patients. We’ve decided to dive into the reasons why so many people are switching to Ultherapy® from surgical methods of revitalizing skin.
What Does Ultherapy® Skin Tightening Do?
Ultherapy® Skin Tightening stimulates collagen production to help lift and tighten unwanted, loose skin. People who receive this treatment can achieve great natural-looking cosmetic results with no downtime. It’s the only non-invasive and FDA approved method that can lift skin located on the neck, below the chin, décolletage, and on eyebrows. After 2-3 months, the new collagen will smooth the treatment sites and produce refreshed results.
How it Works
The first step of the Ultherapy® Facial Skin Tightening process is an ultrasound scan of the patient’s skin. It might seem unusual, but this technique provides a detailed map of the deeper layers of tissue that determine the specific depth and precise areas where treatment is needed. Afterward, low levels of ultrasound energy are safely applied to the treatment area, which heat tissue beneath the skin. This energy tones and tightens skin as collagen is produced. Collagen is a protein that allows skin to maintain a healthy and beautiful form. As people age, their collagen production decreases and causes skin to take on a loose and wrinkled look. The Ultherapy® treatment reverses this process and restores your great, natural-looking appearance.
One of the best aspects of the Ultherapy® Facial Skin Tightening procedure is that there’s no downtime. Patients can attain fantastic cosmetic results without the need to take time off to recover. Some people experience a slight redness or tingling feeling during the first initial hours after the treatment, but it quickly fades.
Dermatology Associates of Atlanta utilizes the benefits of the Ultherapy® Facial Skin Tightening to recover and improve skin quality. Thanks to this procedure, we have helped many patients take years off of their appearance and restore confidence in how they look.
