Ultherapy

At Marietta Facial Plastic Surgery, Laser & Aesthetics Center, we offer Ultherapy® for non-surgical tightening and lifting of the face, neck and décolleté. Ultherapy® is the first FDA approved non-invasive treatment to tighten and lift the jawline, neck, brow and décolleté.

The ideal patient for Ultherapy® treatment is an individual who has early to moderate facial and neck skin sagging, brow droopiness or laxity of the décolleté or has previously undergone facial aesthetic surgery and wishes to enhance his/her facial appearance. This is a procedure that is performed with no anesthesia in about 2 hours, provides gradual but meaningful improvement that peaks at about 6 months after treatment, with results that last for approximately 3-4 years.

Ultherapy® uses focused ultrasound energy that can be targeted to multiple layers of the treated area including the skin, subcutaneous fat, fascia and muscle layers to create intense heat resulting in controlled tissue injury which the body responds to with collagen production and tissue contracture. The Ultherapy® machine also has a display which allows the technician to visualize the exact layer within the treated area that the energy is being delivered to, which provides excellent control and safety during the procedure. All of this results in meaningful tightening and lifting of the treated tissues, which can last for years.

Two weeks prior to treatment, you should avoid medications and oral supplements that are known to facilitate bruising such as Aspirin, NSAIDs such as Advil, Nuprin, Aleve and Motrin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Gingko, Ginseng and Ginger tablets.

On the day of your procedure, after arriving at the office, you will be asked to sign the procedure consent and have your photos taken. Following this, you will take a Valium and a Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen tablet that you will have purchased at the drugstore prior to your treatment. You will then rest in our massage chair until you are relaxed. Once relaxed, you will be transferred to the treatment room and the Ultherapy® procedure performed. It takes about 2 hours to treat the entire face and upper neck. Less time is needed if only a facial segment is being treated. Once the treatment is complete, you must have a driver take you home due to the pre-medications used. No down time or recovery is expected. All of the important healing and tightening occurs deep to the outer layers of the skin. Routine office follow-up is at 3 and 6 months.
