If you're looking for a non-surgical alternative to facelift surgery, consider Ultherapy. In Atlanta and across the country, Ultherapy has become a trusted and reliable method for skin toning. A single session has been shown to produce significant results with little or no downtime and few unwanted side effects. Because Ultherapy lifts and tightens skin from the inside out by stimulating collagen growth, your skin will continue to look more lifted and youthful during the months that follow.
Dr. Jarmuz is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon offering a variety of surgical and minimally invasive facial cosmetic procedures.

Ultherapy is different from laser skin rejuvenation because, unlike lasers, Ultherapy does not affect the surface of the skin. Instead, Ultherapy delivers precisely targeted ultrasound energy to the deep tissue where collagen is found. This re-energizes collagen production to help lift and shift tired skin.
At the beginning of your procedure, a cool gel is applied to the skin. A smooth hand piece (similar to what is used during a pregnancy ultrasound) is then passed over the areas to be treated. Ultrasound energy is emitted during this process, so you may feel a slight prickling or warming sensation. We offer topical and/or injectable anesthesia to help make patients more comfortable. Treatment usually takes about one and half to two hours, and you can go back to work immediately. No special aftercare is required.
Side effects are typically mild. They may include a light flush, minor swelling and tingling or tenderness. There may be bruising from the injections. You will notice an initial lifting effect right away, and real results will develop during the next several weeks as more new collagen is produced. Results typically last several years and can be repeated for even greater benefits.
Individuals who want longer-lasting or more substantial changes may be better suited for a facelift in Atlanta. Eyelid surgery or a brow lift can also provide dramatic changes for those concerned with eyelid drooping or frown lines on the forehead. Complementary treatments that can enhance the effects of Ultherapy include BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers.
