Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared noninvasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow. It is also the only noninvasive treatment specifically FDA-cleared to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage! Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen deep within the skin. The result? Firmer skin from brow to the chest! Even better, Skintherapy is the leading provider of Ultherapy in the Buckhead area.
I have to admit, I was pretty nervous about my Ultherapy treatment. I had been told by numerous people that it can be quite painful and that everyone has a different pain threshold.
Jennifer Curtin, L.M.E., prepped me by applying ultrasound gel to cool my skin and then did one run across my eyebrow with the equipment to show me what it would feel like. I didn’t feel anything at all! Jennifer focused the treatment on my forehead area to give me a brow lift and to smooth my frown lines. As the treatment progressed, I did start to feel a pricking sensation that I would describe as mildly uncomfortable, but overall it was a breeze. I barely felt a thing.
After the treatment, my skin was slightly red and puffy. Jennifer applied a cool seaweed mask to my face that smelled divine. Two hours later, I felt no discomfort and the area around my eyes felt a little tighter. I did not have the treatment done on my neck, although I saw before and after photos of other people who did that area and the pictures were amazing.
I had a fantastic experience and I highly recommend
Jennifer at Skintherapy. She was very sweet and gentle and has a natural bedside manner. The person who performs the treatment is, in my opinion, even more important than the treatment itself.

As with any skin care regimen, consistency is the key to overall good results. A consistent daily regimen of cleansing, moisturizing and protection against the sun is a must. Also, don’t forget to get your skin screened in support of good health and skin cancer awareness month.
