Ultherapy in Atlanta is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that tightens the skin along the treatment area. The licensed providers at Amachi MedSpa recommend this to patients who want a non-surgical alternative to a facelift.
How It Works
Ultherapy releases ultrasound energy calibrated to reach the deeper skin tissue to promote collagen production. Unlike ablative laser treatments, the ultrasound bypasses the skin surface, and so the procedure does not entail prolonged social downtime caused by persistent swelling and redness.
Simply put, the effectiveness of Ultherapy relies on the body’s natural healing process, specifically the increased production of collagen and elastin, which are the main proteins found in the skin. These building blocks of healthy and youthful skin diminish with advancing age, which results in the appearance of wrinkles and lines and a loss of facial volume.
What Makes Ultherapy in Unique?
While other skin rejuvenating treatments also use ultrasound energy, Ultherapy in Atlanta boasts a unique feature: It uses ultrasound imaging that allows the operators to view the deep layers of the skin, allowing them to send the sound waves that propagate through the target soft tissue, resulting in the generation of heat.
The precise heat temperature stimulates increased collagen production. Once tissue remodeling is complete, which happens in the following months, you can expect tighter skin in the treatment area and reduced lines and wrinkles caused by aging, sun exposure, and a poor lifestyle.
The vast majority of patients will only need one treatment to see visible results. During treatment, a gel is applied to your skin before an ultrasound-emitting applicator is pressed against your skin to deliver sound waves deep into the dermis to trigger the production of collagen and elastin.
Surveys have suggested that men generally prefer non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments to surgery-based procedures such as facelift, brow lift, etc. While their reasons vary, many of them mention that they dislike prolonged recovery times and a drastic or unnatural change in their visage.
Consequently, Ultherapy in Atlanta appeals to men and women as it does not entail prolonged downtime. In fact, most patients can resume their social and employment activities the same day as their treatment. After all, the ultrasound energy leaves the outermost layer of the skin undisturbed, as it only penetrates the deeper layer responsible for collagen production. Furthermore, Ultherapy delivers natural-looking results since the technology relies on the body’s natural healing response and tissue remodeling process.
