Ultherapy is at Columbus Facial Plastics at Sullivan Centre is a non-invasive, in office procedure that tightens the skin with no surgery, no scarring and no downtime.

The ultrasonic heat, which is applied to the skin, can be a little warm. Patients are advised to take a mild oral sedative before the procedure to assist with comfort.
With Ultherapy or Ulthera Skin Tightening, your facial skin will look and feel tighter. Results can be detected immediately, but continue to improve with time. These results are expected to persist for up to two years. It is not recommended that Ulthera be repeated more often than every twelve months.
Who is a candidate for Ultherapy?
Everyone with loose skin of the face and neck is a potential candidate. Ultherapy, Ohio is not a substitute for a surgical facelift and cannot achieve the amount of improvement which comes with a facelift. Ultherapy is an option for individuals with loose face or neck skin who:
- Do not want to undergo surgery
- Are not a surgical candidate because of medical condition, age or degree of laxity
- Want immediate improvement, but cannot afford the downtime
- Have already had surgery, but would like some additional tightening
- Had a previous facelift, but are not interested in undergoing a facelift revision procedure
Dr. Stephen Nogan can help you determine if Ulthera is right for you.
Why Choose Ultherapy?
Ultherapy or Ulthera Skin Tightening was initially approved by the FDA for brow and forehead tightening; however, it was found to be equally effective when used around the eyes, along the jaw line and on the neck. Studies are currently underway to evaluate Ultherapy on the arms, legs, abdomen and breast.

How can skin care products help me?
Skin care products, ones that are either dispensed in a physician’s office or sold by prescription, break down the sticky glue between the dead skin cells of the epidermis, causing them to exfoliate. There are literally hundreds of skin care products available on the market—Retin A, Tretinoin, glycolic acid, just to name a few. There are two things you should remember about all these products. One, they all do the same thing, and two, they are all equally effective. It ultimately comes down to your physician’s clinical experience in dealing with your particular skin type and your satisfaction with the product price, look, and feel. It may come down to trial and error when trying to find the correct fit. Skin care products are at the lowest rung of the ladder of skin rejuvenation. Results will be subtle and generally take 3–4 months to materialize. These products will typically improve the appearance of your skin from point A to point B, but most of us expect to see significant improvements. We want to be up at point D, E and F, and we want it yesterday. Skin care products alone won’t get you there, but they are an important first step in the rejuvenation process. Individuals looking for better and faster results need to move up the ladder and consider in-office resurfacing.
