Ultherapy - Nonsurgical Skin Tightening (Metairie, LA)

48 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Ultherapy is a noninvasive skin rejuvenation procedure offered by our cosmetic surgeons that targets the deep layers of the skin. It uses ultrasound waves to stimulate deep dermal tissues that are responsible for collagen growth. Once stimulated, these layers start a more aggressive production of collagen, which helps the superficial layer of skin to become more supple. The result for our New Orleans and Metairie patients is a lifted, tighter, and overall softer facial appearance. Commonly combined with other nonsurgical methods such as BOTOX or injectable fillers, Ultherapy is especially beneficial in correcting facial wrinkles and creases located on the face, brows, around the mouth and the neck.

Procedure Process

Ultherapy is an outpatient procedure that may be performed with topical anesthesia to ease mild warming and prickling sensations. It can be done in a doctor’s clinic and doesn’t last longer than 30 minutes. A handpiece is guided around the areas to be treated as ultrasound waves are emitted. These trigger collagen development, which will gradually result in healthier skin. There will be no pain, and discomfort is limited compared to other laser treatments. In some cases, several treatments may be required for optimal results.

What to Expect

There is a noticeable improvement with the skin’s appearance right after treatment. The actual results will be gradual as collagen multiplies, enhancing the skin structure. Optimal results are evident around the third month. There may be slight redness or swelling after treatment which subsides after a few hours. The patient will experience no downtime, and will be able to go back to normal activities immediately. It is important to set realistic expectations with this approach as it cannot produce the same results as a surgical procedure.

Expected Cost

The average cost for a full face treatment is around $3,000. Smaller areas usually cost less. Brows average around $1,500 while lower or mid-face sections run around $2,000. Costs can increase when it comes to the number of treatments needed or if a combination of areas are performed on. Patients should understand several treatments might be required.

Ultherapy FAQs

Who Should Get It?

Individuals who are averse to surgical cosmetic procedures can benefit the most with Ultherapy. The results will be gradual, but the quality of improvement is significant as the healing starts within the skin. It is the perfect treatment for those who still have a good skin tone but begin to see signs of skin laxity. Most commonly, those who are aged 30 to 40 seek this treatment to slow down aging effects.

Long-Term Results?

Immediate improvement can be readily seen right after treatment; however, optimal results become more noticeable after a few months. The treatment is safe to be repeated especially after 1 year as the positive effects subside. 

Multiple Treatments?

The number of sessions depends on the patient’s skin condition and aesthetic goals. Most patients who still have a good skin tone can have significant results with a single treatment. For those who show more symptoms of skin aging, several treatments may be needed to produce the wanted results.
