Ultherapy is your “Best” Lifting Choice
The field of facial cosmetic procedures has many different types of treatments, most which are surgically invasive and require some period of recuperation and recovery after the procedure. While these treatments can and do provide exceptional results for thousands of patients around the world, many people would like to treat their aging and sagging skin without needing to resort to surgery. Ultherapy, the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for skin lifting on the neck, chin, and brow, is an excellent alternative, offered to patients in the greater Atlanta area by Goodman Dermatology.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an exciting and proven non-surgical method of lifting and tightening sagging areas of skin on the face and neck. Using focused ultrasonic waves to lift the skin and add definition; this technique shares none of the risks of surgery, but offers an impressive boost to the skin’s firmness and shape. The ultrasonic waves help the skin develop and add new collagen in the areas where they are directed, which is what helps the skin maintain its shape. The length of time this treatment lasts varies by individual, but many patients treated still have fresh collagen even a year after the procedure. Over time, the skin continues to age at a normal pace, but additional follow-up treatments can continue to aid the body in creating additional collagen where it is needed most.
Who is a Good Candidate?
While the benefits and risks of any medical treatment are variable depending on the patient, Ultherapy is perfect for someone who does not want to have surgery or other invasive methods of treatment, but would still like the effects of medical intervention for sagging or older skin. Candidates for the treatment would have skin that looks relaxed and has lost its firmness, including a lowered brow or sagging skin on the eyelids. For these patients, the effects of Ultherapy can provide a positive alternative to surgery.
