Age Gracefully with Ultherapy
When your skin isn't as firm as it used to be, Après Plastic Surgery may help to increase your skin's elasticity using Ultherapy, a noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment for loose facial, neck, chin, and décolletage skin. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Ultherapy's energy from ultrasound waves can change the elasticity of your skin with a 30 – 90-minute session. After your appointment and when the treated skin starts to heal, your body goes into a natural collagen production mode to strengthen the skin. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Aric Aghayan is pleased to provide Ultherapy to Portland, OR men and women. This treatment may be used along with other skin rejuvenation treatments, like an injectable or laser skin resurfacing, to leave your skin appearing youthful.

I found his manner of walking me through the procedure calming and, frankly, the pain involved was simply not something I even noted. Many doctors have the intellectual capability to perform plastic surgery related procedures, Dr. Aghayan goes beyond this by his spirit of kindness and respect. Finally, the positive results of his work are inescapable -- the cosmetic goals I was striving for were met and more."- G. / RealSelf / Jun 22, 2020

Ultherapy Procedure Technique
Men and women can both get results from Ultherapy treatments. If you have noticed that the skin on your face is becoming more lax with light or medium lines (around the eyes, brow, and mouth), or developing a light jowl droop, you might be an ideal patient for this nonsurgical treatment. If you have severe skin sagging or etched wrinkles and lines, a surgical facelift could be a better option for your needs.
After you arrive, you will be invited to lie down in our treatment room where we will prepare the skin being treated, which can include the use of a numbing agent. During the procedure, a handpiece that emits ultrasound energy will be passed across your skin. Based how many areas of skin you're getting treated, your procedure can take around 1 – 2 hours. It's usual for the treated skin to appear slightly red and swollen. You may apply ice packs and take a nonprescription pain reliever to decrease any inflammation and pain. You can put on cosmetics after your appointment and resume your day as usual.
What to Expect with Ultherapy®
This cosmetic procedure will not give you visible results right away. It will take some time for the treated skin to heal and adjust after the treatment. With the boost of collagen, the skin will tighten in around six or more months.
Ultherapy Ideal Candidates
How much does Ultherapy cost?
The cost of your Ultherapy treatment will rely on your unique needs and the number of areas being addressed. During your first visit, we will discuss the recommended number of treatments and your estimated costs. Après Plastic Surgery accepts many forms of payment and can help you find low-interest medical financing.
What areas does Ultherapy treat?
Ultherapy can treat a variety of areas, including the chest, neck, and face. Ultherapy is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment to address loose skin for a tighter, younger-looking appearance. Ultherapy is great to either reduce signs of aging in your skin or prevent the development of problems, like lines and wrinkles.
Who should get Ultherapy?
Anyone who wants healthier skin, including a better tone, can benefit from Ultherapy. The results will be gradual, but the quality of improvement is significant as the healing starts within the skin. It is an ideal treatment for those who still have a good skin tone but are beginning to see signs of skin laxity. Most commonly, those who are between the ages of 30 – 40 seek this treatment to slow down aging effects.
Will I see results from Ultherapy right away?
Immediate improvement will not be readily seen right after your first Ultherapy treatment. Optimal results become more noticeable after a few months. Typically, most patients opt to have a repeat treatment around 12 months after their initial session.
Do I need multiple Ultherapy treatments?
The number of sessions needed depends on your skin condition and aesthetic goals. Generally, most patients who still have a good skin tone can have significant results with a single treatment. For those who show more symptoms of aging, several treatments may be needed to produce the desired result.
