Ultherapy is an FDA approved device for skin tightening. It works by delivering ultrasound energy into the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates the skin to produce new collagen, which tightens the skin and also improves skin texture and thickness. Ultherapy does not affect the superficial layer of skin, so it does not cause any crusting or skin discoloration, and it can be used on all skin types. Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest as it is the only non-invasive procedure that is FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow.

Ultherapy Consultation

Your first step in learning more about Ultherapy is to schedule your complimentary consultation with the Emory Aesthetic Center. Our expert team of surgeon’s and licensed aestheticians will evaluate your goals and determine if you are a candidate for treatment. The consultation will allow you the opportunity to visit our facility and get to know our staff. Our team will carefully evaluate your face to recommend the right number of treatments for you.

Ultherapy Candidates

Ultherapy is ideal for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity who want an overall tighter skin appearance without surgery and minimal downtime. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Ultherapy Procedure

Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen. New collagen formation will tighten the skin and improve laxity over a period of 2 to 3 months with usually one single treatment. Further improvements can appear up to 6 months following your Ultherapy session.

Each session lasts up to 60 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. The cheek, the brows, the neck and the jaw line are facial areas that benefit the most from this procedure. Patients report a warm sensation during the application; some patients report sensitivity along the bony areas such as the eye socket and jawline. At the Emory Aesthetic Center we strive to make your experience as comfortable as possible. In most cases, an oral pain medication is given 30 min before the procedure to help with comfort.

Ultherapy Recovery

It is common to have minor swelling and redness for a few hours after the procedure. Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2 to 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. Your Emory Aesthetic Center provider will want to see you for follow-up visits post procedure to track your improvement during the 2 to 3 month period.
