Learn More About Ulthera for Facial Rejuvenation
Skin sags, relaxes, and loosens over time, leading to lines, jowls, uneven tone, and other signs of aging, but a single noninvasive treatment available at Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery can address all of those problems at once. Ultherapy® gives Michigan patients skin a natural lift by stimulating collagen production. Found throughout healthy, youthful skin, collagen creates a firm and flexible support structure that holds skin in place, preventing the drooping that creates an aged and even flabby appearance.
Ultherapy® starts new collagen formation by sending sound waves deep into the skin where they trigger a biological healing response. More collagen means thicker layers that add volume to hollow areas. The sound waves also help to even out skin tone.
The FDA cleared Ultherapy® to treat lines, wrinkles, and sagging on the brow, chin, neck, and upper chest, known as the dÃ©colletage. Patients who want more youthful facial contours, but who are not ready to choose surgery, enjoy the noninvasive nature of Ultherapy®.

“When I saw the kind of results people were getting with Ulthera, I just had to try it for myself. I couldn’t believe it, only 1 procedure, less than 1 hour, took 10 years off my face! It’s been over 2 months since I had the procedure done and I’m still raving about it to everyone. For anyone like me who is too scared to go under the knife for a true facelift, Ulthera is the answer.” *

Ulthera Treatment in Ann Arbor:
Once the Ultherapy® applicator is placed over your face, a provider will actually be able to see the tissue and skin beneath. The ultrasound imaging allows him to treat the area with accuracy to ensure a safe and effective outcome. The ultrasound energy waves do not harm the skin’s surface as they penetrate it to reach the underlying structures. Patients will immediately notice their skin contracting as weak collagen is reorganized and supplemented with new collagen to contract and lift the skin. The beneficial growth will cause gradual tightening of the facial skin, resulting in a natural uplift.
What to Expect Following Ultherapy® in Ann Arbor:
There can be some swelling and redness after Ulthera treatments. This usually lasts 24 to 48 hours if you have swelling. The redness can be camouflaged with make-up almost immediately after the procedure. The process described above will deliver natural appearing results over the course of two to three months, and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to six months. This improvement includes lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow. Ulthera treatments set the aging clock backward, though patients may have repeat treatments within two to three years. While ultrasound Ulthera treatment does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy® has proven to be a safe and effective alternative for those who are not yet ready, or willing, to go under the knife for a more thoroughly invasive surgical procedure.
