Aging is a fact of life. You can’t escape the aging process, but you can reverse some of its effects. At Tarola Plastic Surgery, with offices conveniently located in Murfreesboro and Hendersonville, TN, we want to introduce you to Ultherapy, a skin lifting and tightening treatment that initiates a natural anti-aging response in your body to deliver results.
Are Ultherapy Results Permanent?
Ultherapy results are intended to be permanent, but the aging process will eventually affect your results. As you age, even after experiencing this treatment, you will continue to notice skin laxity as your body produces less collagen and elastin.
However, the results from this treatment are long-lasting; you will be able to enjoy them for several years. When you start to notice that aging is catching up with you and affecting your results, you can schedule a follow-up treatment to once again stimulate your body’s collagen and elastin production.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive anti-aging treatment. It’s known as the non-surgical facelift, and while the results will not replicate those of a facelift, this treatment will give you the next best thing, and you won’t have to undergo the knife. This treatment uses ultrasound energy to target the deep layers of the skin to increase the body’s collagen and elastin production. Results appear gradually over time, and you’ll end up with tighter skin and a lifted appearance.
What Areas Can It Treat?
This treatment is designed to target sagging skin in the middle and lower half of the face. It can also improve skin laxity on the body to restore youth to areas that have begun to develop crepey or loose skin. It can be used on the brows, the jawline, the neck, and the decolletage. It can also be used on the forehead to lift the brows and tighten the skin in the surrounding area.
How Does It Work?
If you’ve experienced an ultrasound, this treatment will feel very similar. When you come in for treatment, your technician will apply ultrasound gel to your skin. Once the Ultherapy device makes contact with your skin, a digital thermal image of the layers of your skin will appear on a screen. Your technician will use this image to effectively treat your problem areas so that you get that tighter, lifted appearance after just one treatment.
The digital image of your skin provides the technician with the ability to use accuracy and precision when delivering the ultrasound energy to your target areas. The ultrasound energy can reach some of the deepest layers of the skin to both rebuild collagen and stimulate collagen production so that you get some amazing results.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for Ultherapy are those who want to tighten and lift their skin, treat the signs of aging, and restore their youth without undergoing any invasive treatment to do so. Additionally, those who have had a facelift make good candidates for this treatment. They can use it to help prolong the results of their facelift and maintain a youthful and lifted appearance.
Most patients schedule this treatment in their 30s when they have begun to notice the first signs of aging on their skin. Patients in their 40s, 50s, and beyond also schedule treatments to restore their youth, turn back the clock, and improve their appearance without undergoing a surgical procedure.
Are Results Immediate?
Most patients notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of their skin after their first treatment, but the best and final results will take time to appear. Collagen production can take up to 12 weeks once stimulated. You will typically see your best and final results within a few weeks of your initial treatment. Even though waiting for those results can be hard, the fact that this treatment delivers gradual results is one of the reasons that patients love it so much.
Some people feel self-conscious about the fact that others may notice immediate changes in their appearance after an anti-aging treatment. With this treatment, changes occur gradually, so your face, neck, or chest skin will continue to improve over time. You won’t look like you had anything done; you’ll just slowly look like an improved you.
What Are the Benefits?
This anti-aging treatment offers many benefits, which is why it has become such a popular treatment among both men and women who want to change their appearance for the better. It’s a quick treatment, and there’s no downtime.
You can arrive at your appointment, undergo the treatment, and then resume your normal daily activities, knowing that you’re one step closer to more youthful skin. Additionally, most patients only need one treatment to achieve results, not several sessions like most anti-aging treatments often require.
Is It Painful?
Ultherapy is a painless treatment. You may feel a warm sensation during the treatment process, but you won’t feel any pain. Our technicians will take every measure to keep you completely comfortable throughout the entirety of the treatment.
Can I Combine It With Other Treatments?
This anti-aging treatment can be combined with other similar treatments to rejuvenate the face. Laser treatments pair well with Ultherapy because together, they can provide total skin rejuvenation.

Whether you’re a skincare fanatic who wants the best of the best when it comes to your skin, or you just want something that will make your problematic skin conditions go away, we have the perfect treatment. This is exactly what you’ve been looking for but may not have known even existed. At Tarola Plastic Surgery in Murfreesboro, TN, we offer RF microneedling, a treatment that combines the power of collagen induction with radiofrequency energy to help perfect the skin.
You may know what microneedling is, even if you’ve never tried it, but you may be wonder what RF microneedling is. This treatment combines all of the benefits of radiofrequency and collagen induction therapy into one treatment to help improve the skin and deliver some amazing results. Both microneedling and radiofrequency energy stimulate collagen production below the skin’s surface, but they do it in different ways. So when you combine them, the results get even better.
Why Is It So Effective?
Radiofrequency energy is so effective when used during skin care treatments because it stimulates collagen production deep within the skin. Collagen is essential for youthful, firm skin, but the body decreases its production with the aging process. This form of heat energy increases collagen and elastin production to lift, plump, and tighten the skin.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, uses tiny, hair-thin, sterile needles to create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, which cause the body to respond by healing the area with the help of increased collagen production.
What Does It Treat?
RF microneedling can deliver all of the same benefits of microneedling, and then some. It will improve overall skin health, slow and even reverse the signs of aging, create a brighter, more even complexion, and target and treat some of your most stubborn skin concerns. It is most often used to address concerns on the face but can also improve areas of the body, including the hands, abdomen, back, legs, décolleté, arms, and neck. Specifically, it can:
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Help reduce the appearance of a double chin
- Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Increase collagen and elastin production
- Lift the jowls
- Reduce pore size
- Tighten the skin
- Treat acne scars
- Improve sun damage
- Smooth areas with rough patches
- Help reduce stretch marks
- Improve hyperpigmentation
How Does It Work?
This process will begin with an initial consultation at our office. We’ll learn more about your goals, your skin, and your problem areas during the consultation. We’ll also be able to analyze those problem areas in person to determine if RF microneedling will help you reach your skin goals. Then, we’ll schedule your treatment.
During the treatment, your technician will begin by cleansing your face to rid it of any oil, dirt, or debris. You may be asked to wear a protective eye covering during the treatment. Then, your technician will apply a topical numbing gel as needed to help ensure that the treatment is comfortable and painless.
Once your skin is numb, the RF microneedling process will begin. Next, the technician will move the device back and forth across your face or other treatment areas, zoning in on your specific problem areas. The entire process can take 30 minutes.
How Many Treatments Are Necessary?
Most patients benefit from just one treatment, but the best results typically come from a treatment plan that includes anywhere from two to four treatments spaced out with a few weeks between each.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we will analyze your skin to determine the best plan of action to help you reach your skin goals as soon as possible. Each patient is different and has different needs and concerns, and we take that into account when we create a customized treatment plan that’s right for you.
Can I Do It at Home?
There are many products available for at-home use that promise to deliver the same results as an in-office treatment, but the truth is, they cannot. The only effective form of RF microneedling is that which is performed in an office setting. When you schedule your treatment, you can rest assured that you’ll be treated by a professional and will get some amazing results.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Once you undergo the necessary number of treatments to target and treat your skin, you can expect to see results. Results will vary based on your skin condition at the time of treatment, but generally, you can expect do you see an improvement in your skin within a few weeks of treatment.
Those improvements will continue to develop over the course of six months as your body increases collagen and elastin in the treatment areas to improve your skin, deliver anti-aging benefits, and resolve your problematic skin conditions.
What Are the Benefits?
One of the primary benefits of this treatment is that it is completely natural. It doesn’t involve the use of harsh chemicals or products containing ingredients that could irritate your skin. Instead, it uses a natural process to stimulate the body’s healing abilities so that you can achieve results.
It also is a quick treatment, with little to no downtime, and does not cause any discomfort. It works, it’s backed by science, and it has helped thousands of men and women improve their skin in just a few quick treatments.

Injectable dermal fillers are used to restore your natural beauty. Juvederm is one of the most popular lines of dermal fillers because it has been FDA-approved for many years and the results are long-lasting. Today, our experts at Tarola Plastic Surgery in Murfreesboro, TN are discussing everything you need to know about this incredible anti-aging treatment.
Does Juvederm Work Right Away?
Yes, Juvederm works right away. As soon as the dermal filler is injected, it starts to spread throughout the treatment area, volumizing it. That said, the final results of this treatment are not immediately apparent. The filler needs time to settle fully and take full effect. Therefore, you should expect your final results to become apparent a few days after your injections.
You should also understand hyaluronic encourages your skin to produce extra collagen. This leads to further improvements in the hydration, tone, and texture of your skin. Again, it takes several weeks for these benefits to develop fully.
The Line of Fillers
Some of the words people use to describe the Juvederm family include safe, effective, and predictable. Each formulation contains the primary ingredient hyaluronic acid, sometimes referred to as HA.
That said, each formula is unique in the concentration of HA present and how the HA molecules are bonded during the manufacturing process. Each formula was designed carefully to be particularly effective in a different region of the face.
What These Fillers Do
Jointly, these injectables can erase lines and wrinkles, restore volume, augment thin or hollow features and improve contours. They are popular alternatives to facelifts due to how quickly the results become apparent.
Ultra XC is a colorless gel with a pudding-like consistency. It is the perfect solution for people with thin or asymmetrical lips. Depending on your desired aesthetic, this filler may be injected inside the lips, along the cupid’s bow, or on the vermilion border. That said, it isn’t used exclusively to augment the lips. It can also be used to:
- Minimize scars around the mouth
- Erase nasolabial folds
- Restore volume beneath the eyes
- Erase marionette lines
Voluma XC is the most recent addition to the Juvederm family. This incredibly durable filler was designed to augment and lift the cheeks. It can also be used to improve the contours of the cheekbones.
Furthermore, it is the only FDA-approved dermal filler that can be used to treat concerns related to the cheeks and chin. Thanks to the thick consistency of this filler, it can be massaged gently after injection so it contours to the unique shape of your face.
How Long Do the Results of This Treatment Last?
The formula is one of many factors affecting how long the results of this treatment lasts. For example, if you receive Ultra XC injections, you can expect your lips to remain perfectly plump for a year.
Additionally, you can expect your nose and mouth to remain wrinkle-free for at least 12 months. You can expect your cheeks to remain augmented for two years if you receive Voluma injections.
Each Juvederm formula comprises HA-based gel with a smooth consistency. This provides results that look far more natural than the results of fillers with granular gels. This allows us to provide you with the following benefits:
- Added definition
- Seamlessly corrected folds
- Flawlessly erased lines and wrinkles
- Authentic contours
When you opt for Juvederm injections, you can rest assured your results will look completely natural. In other words, nobody will know you had professional help to look as young and healthy as you will after treatment.
People often refer to this line of dermal fillers as “next-generation” because the risk of an allergic reaction is mitigated. In the past, HA was derived from animal sources. Unfortunately, there is a risk of developing an allergic reaction to animal-derived hyaluronic acid. There is no such risk with Juvederm formulas.
Since this line of dermal fillers is hypoallergenic, you don’t need to take an allergy scratch-test and wait for the results to see if you’re a good fit for this treatment.
One of the most compelling advantages associated with this line of fillers is the consistency of the results. Each filler we offer is FDA-approved for efficacy, so you can rest assured your concerns will be corrected after treatment. Additionally, you can feel confident your results will look natural because it stimulates your skin’s own restorative properties.
Skin Quality Improvement
As mentioned previously, hyaluronic acid encourages your skin to produce collagen. In turn, collagen ignites elastin production. This is important because hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin are essential for keeping your skin healthy and youthful in appearance.
Schedule Your Initial Consultation Today
You will notice an immediate improvement in your appearance after your Juvederm injections. However, it takes several days for the filler to settle fully and take full effect.
