Ultherapy is a relatively new non-surgical treatment that tightens and lifts the skin and deep tissue of the face and neck without any downtime. The most commonly targeted areas are the brow, neck and jawline.
While not intended to replace a facelift or other surgery, Ultherapy is a good alternaive for those the do not want to undergo an invasive procedure or to prolong the effect of a facelift for those who have already had surgery.
Ultherapy is intended for those in their thirties or older with mild to moderate skin laxity of their face and neck. The treatment can also be limited to the forehead for those who wish elevation of their eyebrows. Ultherapy can also be combined with laser skin resurfacing for a total facial rejuvenation.
The Non-invasive Lift
Unlike other skin tightening technologies, Ultherapy is the only non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to deliver heat energy to the tissue while also allowing the physician to see the tissue being treated. The low levels of heat energy stimulates your collagen to renew and strengthen over time, gradually resulting in a natural-appearing skin tissue lift without any damage to the skin surface.
Your Goals and Experience
The goals of your treatment will be discussed with Vanderbilt-trained Plastic Surgeon Dr. Tarola. Your Ultherapy session will be performed in the comfort of the Tarola Plastic Surgery office typically in 30-90 minutes. Since there is no harm to the skin, you may return to work or daily activities immediately with little to no redness. Although you may see some initial improvement on the day of the procedure, your final result will be recognized in 3 to 6 months. Most patients will see significant results after only one treatment, but some may require additional treatments to achieve an optimal response.
