Decrease sagging skin of your décolletage, face, neck and chin with our Ulthera technology at Dr. A Jay Burns Cosmetic Surgery. We can help you firm up lax skin with Ultherapy, a nonsurgical ultrasound treatment that stimulates your own natural collagen production in 30 – 90 minute sessions. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Ultherapy will repair mild-to-moderate skin looseness. It can also be used in combination with other treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing, wrinkle relaxers, or injectable fillers.
When you are not ready for plastic surgery, our board-certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. A Jay Burns can still offer you options to rejuvenate and tighten your facial skin. Call and schedule a consultation today to learn more about Ultherapy for younger, tighter looking skin.
Men and women can both benefit from Ultherapy treatments. If you have noticed your facial skin becoming lax with mild to moderate facial wrinkles (around the mouth, eyes, and brow), or a slight droop in the jowls, you may be a good candidate for this nonsurgical treatment. If you have severe sagging, or deeper lines and wrinkles, a surgical facelift may be a more suitable option for you.
Plan Your Procedure
- Procedure Recovery Location
You will be asked to lie down in our minor procedures room where we will prepare your treatment area, which may include the application of a numbing agent. During the procedure, a hand-held device that emits the ultrasound energy will glide over your skin. Depending on the number of areas you are having treated, your sessions may last 30 – 90-minutes. It is very common for your skin to appear pink and slightly swollen. You can use ice packs and take ibuprofen to decrease the pain and inflammation the treatment may cause. Women may apply makeup after their appointment, and go about their day as normal.
What to Expect
This cosmetic procedure will not show results immediately. It will take some time for your skin to heal and adjust to what the Ultherapy treatment has done to your skin. With the boost in collagen, the skin will tighten over time. You may see some fluctuations in your facial appearance, but keep in mind that your results may take up to 6 months to appear.
Age Gracefully with Ultherapy
Treat yourself to ultherapy sessions at our office so that the skin on your chest, face, chin, and neck can look fabulously toned without surgery. Our ultrasound technique, which is approved by the FDA, will tighten your skin with no downtime (as you would have with surgery). We would love to discuss this technique with you in a private consultation in our office. Call and schedule your appointment today.
