Ultherapy® Skin Tightening Receives Third FDA Approval

March 10, 2014 | Blog, Other, Skin Care, Skin Tightening

AYA Medical Spa offers the latest cosmetic skincare technologies that treat patients for various skin concerns from the signs of aging to acne and scarring. One of AYA Avalon (Alpharetta) and Phipps Plaza’s (Atlanta) latest technology treatments is Ultherapy® non-surgical skin tightening which specifically lifts and firms sagging skin without any incisions, scarring, or extended downtime. In 2009, Ulthera® received its first FDA approval for skin tightening on the face and later received an additional FDA clearance to treat drooping skin on the chin and neck. Earlier in 2014, Ulthera® received its third FDA clearance that allows licensed providers to visualize the dermal and subdermal layers of tissue.

With the brand new stand-alone clearance, it is officially recognized as a tool to help our licensed estheticians view layers they need to treat. This visualization also enhances the patient experience as they can receive the most optimal treatment from their provider. Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology to generate heat energy to rejuvenate skin. By penetrating deeper layers of tissue, Ulthera® promotes collagen production for a natural lift without any surgery. There is minimal downtime and patients have reported visible results after just one treatment.

In addition to Ultherapy®, AYA also provides non-surgical technology treatments including CoolSculpting® fat reduction and Sciton® laser treatments. CoolSculpting® reduces unwanted fat without any surgery, anesthesia, scarring, or downtime. As an alternative to body contouring surgery, CoolSculpting® uses a cooling process to freeze fat cells for the body to naturally remove through the lymphatic system. Sciton® is a versatile laser that treats almost any skin condition including wrinkles, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and spider veins.
