What is Ultherapy?
If your skin isn't as firm as you'd like, Mesbahi Plastic Surgery can help to increase its laxity using Ultherapy, a nonsurgical treatment for loose facial, neck, and chest skin. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Ultherapy's energy from ultrasound waves can change the laxity of your skin with a 30 – 90-minute session. When the treated skin begins to heal, your body goes into a natural collagen production mode to strengthen the tissue. Plastic surgeon Dr. Alex Mesbahi is pleased to offer Ultherapy to local women and men. This procedure may be performed along with other nonsurgical skin treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing or an injectable to leave your skin appearing softer and younger. Contact our office in McLean, VA, Washington, D.C., or Beverly Hills, CA to schedule your Ultherapy appointment today.
"Dr. Alex Mesbahi, I just wanted to thank you so much for what you did for me and so grateful for your services. Doctors like you make surgery a wonderful experience. You don't know how much this means to me. You're awesome."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Feb 24, 2020
"Dr. Mesbahi and Staff Are Amazing!! - Dr. Mesbahi and his entire staff are amazing. Dr. Mesbahi did not cut any corners. He made my well being and my health his first priority. My post op results are amazing!! I was a little worried about scaring because I suffer from hyperpigmentation. Only weeks after surgery I can honestly say I can barely see the incisions. I was also afraid of pain from the surgery, but there was minimal. I’m not sure how Dr. Mesbahi did it but he did. I felt like I could get right back at it the next day. He and his staff are down to earth, kind, caring, and on top of their game. From the time I went in for my consult to post surgery I have been in good hands. You will not be disappointed!!"- K. / RealSelf / Jun 02, 2020

Who is a Candidate for ultherapy?
If you are beginning to notice that the skin on your face has become looser with light to moderate lines (in the areas around the brows, eyes, and mouth), or noticing a light jowl droop, you might be an ideal candidate for Ultherapy treatments. If you have more severe sagging or etched lines and wrinkles, a surgical facelift or neck lift could be a better procedure for your needs. During your initial consultation, Dr. Mesbahi will assess your areas of concern and take his time to understand your cosmetic goals to determine if Ultherapy is right for you.
What to expect during ultherapy
Ultherapy is an outpatient procedure that is performed on-site in one of our private treatment rooms. To start, one of our aestheticians will cleanse your skin to remove any oil, dirt, and makeup. Once your skin is prepped, the Ultherapy handpiece will be passed over your skin as it emits ultrasonic energy to the treatment area. Ultherapy gently heats the skin so that it visibly contracts for a more youthful contour. The treatment also stimulates collagen formation to improve the results over time. Depending on the number of areas being treated, your procedure can take 30 – 90 minutes. After your treatment, your skin may look slightly pink and inflamed, but these symptoms can be eased with over-the-counter pain medication or a cold compress.
How long is recovery after ultherapy?
Ultherapy does not yield results right away. The treated skin will need time to adjust after your procedure. With the boost of collagen, patients may notice mild improvements within three months with optimal results appearing at around 6 – 8 months. Many patients decide to have a secondary treatment around 12 months after their initial session. The number of treatments needed will depend on your skin condition and aesthetic goals. Generally, most patients will experience great results with a single treatment. For those who show more symptoms of aging, several treatments may be needed to achieve your desired outcome.
How much does Ultherapy cost?
The cost of your Ultherapy treatment depends on your skin condition and how many treatment areas are being addressed. During your consultation, Dr. Mesbahi will assess your skin to determine the ideal number of treatments to achieve your desired results. Mesbahi Plastic Surgery accepts various types of payments and will assist you in finding low-interest financing options.
What areas does Ultherapy treat?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved treatment to tighten loose skin of the face, neck, and chest for a rejuvenated, more youthful-looking appearance. It’s a great treatment to help address fine lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging.
Is Ultherapy painful?
No, because Ultherapy uses soundwaves to help improve skin laxity, most patients report only feeling a mild warmth and tingling sensation deep in the skin of the treatment area.
How long will it be until I see results from Ultherapy?
It will take time before your Ultherapy results will be noticeable. As your body begins to produce more natural collagen, you will see improvement over the next few months after your treatment. Most patients will schedule a follow-up treatment 12 months after their first session.
