No Surgery. No Down Time. FDA-Approved
Unhappy with sagging cheeks or smile lines around your mouth that make you look older?
How about double chins or sagging necklines?
Thanks to some impressive new technology, you can look up to ten years younger without plastic surgery. Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive device that uses micro-focused ultrasound to lift skin on the face and neck. It uses ultrasound energy to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, face, neck, and under the chin.
Ultherapy directs sound waves deep under the skin to the same tissue addressed in surgical facelifts. By heating this tissue Ultherapy stimulates the body’s natural ability to produce new collagen which then lifts and tightens loose skin –all without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
It’s An Uplift, Not A Facelift.
Why go under the surgeon’s knife when you can get many of the results without such an invasive procedure? For men especially, a traditional facelift can give a feminizing appearance while facial skin is stretched behind the ears, where hair can start growing. Ultherapy avoids those negative consequences because it provides a natural ‘lift’ to the skin.

How Ultherapy Smooths Out Smile Lines
( Parenthesis Lines Or Nasolabial folds)
Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic. As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Ultherapy jump-starts a natural repair process that produces fresh, new collagen that lifts and tightens problem areas from the inside out.
Reduce Or Eliminate Double Chins & Sagging Necklines
When the skin on the cheeks and neck begins to shift downward, the result is a change in the contour of the lower face. Ultherapy can lift and tighten the sagging skin on the cheeks and neck to give a younger, slimmer look.
What Happens During The Procedure?
In some ways, Ultherapy is just like an ultrasound imaging procedure expectant mothers receive. A smooth hand piece is placed on your skin and an image of the tissue beneath is projected on a screen. This allows us to “see” where we will treat your skin.
But here’s the difference: with Ultherapy, that same hand piece is also used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin, to the same foundational layer typically addressed in a surgical facelift.
Your body’s response to this energy is to recondition tired skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lifting—or shifting—of the skin back into a more youthful position and form-fitting shape.

Is Ultherapy Right For You?
The Food And Drug Administration (FDA) established Ultherapy to be safe and effective in clinical studies and in over 100,000 patient treatments worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years. We are one of the first medical offices to provide the FDA-approved Ultherapy in Atlanta.
Is there downtime?
None. You can return to normal activities right away.
Your skin may appear flushed immediately after the ultrasound treatment, but any redness should disappear within a few hours. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days, or tingling/tenderness to the touch for a few weeks following the procedure, but these are mild and temporary. There is the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, such as temporary small areas of bruising or numbness, and other rare effects which we will review with you.
How Many Treatments Does It Take To Get The Desired Effect?
Just one. It’s a rare exception to need more.
How Long Do You Have To Wait To See The Results?
Almost instantly, but you will also see your skin gradually “lift” over 2-3 months as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen. This will lift and tighten the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow.
The natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time—much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle. Results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months.
How Long Do The Results Last?
For three years or more. But skin continues to age so you may want future touch-up treatments to help keep pace with the aging process.
Does It Hurt?
It is somewhat painful but we will prescribe pain medication to make you feel comfortable. You will experience sensations from the ultrasound energy as it is deposited below the surface of the skin. These sensations are temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. It is noticeable just while the energy is being delivered and patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.
Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. There is always the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, which we will be happy to review with you.
Are You A Candidate For Ultherapy?
Yes, if you’re bothered by “frown lines” (smile lines that look like parentheses and make you look like you’re always frowning). Or mild-to-moderate sagging skin on the eyelids, on the neck or under the chin. If so, Ultherapy might be right for you.Typically, the best candidates are people thirty or older who do not want, nor need the structural changes associated with surgical facelifts. Call us at 404-888-0228 for a free consultation.
Ultherapy addresses mild to moderate loose or sagging skin on the face and neck. Specifically, by reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, Ultherapy will lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes, and gives a more refreshed look overall. Ultherapy is also used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the neck and under the chin, which will dramatically reduce or eliminate the “turkey gobbler” and “double chin,” which you may be struggling with.
