Additionally, the Ultherapy™ System is FDA approved for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles in the upper chest area. At Saratoga Springs Plastic Surgery, Dr. Steven Yarinsky and our staff may choose to use the state-of-the-art Ultherapy™ treatment to help you effectively achieve your facial rejuvenation goals. Ultherapy™ revitalizes skin naturally, yet noticeably!
Who is a good candidate?
Although Ultherapy™ can rejuvenate, refine and restore a more youthful appearance to most adults over the age of 30, ideal candidates for this treatment have the following traits
- You are apprehensive about undergoing a surgical procedure.
- You do not have expendable downtime necessary to devote to a recovery period.
- You are seeking modest changes to saggy skin and have minimal facial lines.
- You have early jowling and mild neck skin laxity
- You have mild to moderate upper eyelid hooding due to droopy eyebrows
- You have fine lines and wrinkles on your upper chest or décolletage area
The Ultherapy Procedure
Also referred to as Ulthera®, Dr. Yarinsky uses the Ultherapy® System to send micro-focused ultrasound waves deep into subcutaneous skin layers in order to heat tissues and promote collagen growth in targeted areas. The growth of newly produced stronger collagen is a natural anti-aging process as it replaces older collagen and restores skin elasticity, which can give your face and chest a more youthful-looking tighter appearance. Dr. Yarinsky and his staff generally perform the entire treatment in about one hour, but procedure times may vary depending on your skin type and the number of areas you wish to have treated.
Recovery and Results
There is generally no downtime after Ultherapy®, and patients can typically return to their daily routines immediately following the procedure. Some minor swelling and redness can be expected, but there is usually little to no discomfort. You may experience mild tenderness, skin sensitivity or bruising lasting up to a week or two after the procedure. Results gradually improve and are cumulative for three to nine months after a single Ultherapy® treatment as new collagen replaces old and your skin tightens and lifts.
