Ultrasound, a technology that has been trusted by expectant mothers for decades, is now being used in a whole new type of cosmetic procedure that non surgically tightens loose skin on the face and neck. This procedure, called Ultherapy™, is the first and only energy-based procedure in aesthetics to be cleared by the FDA for non-invasive lifting. Goldman Butterwick Fitzpatrick Groff & Fabi, Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is pleased to be among the first practices to provide this treatment.
Ultherapy allows physicians to actually see the layers of skin and plan where to send the ultrasound energy. When the ultrasound energy is delivered, the body’s natural response mechanism is triggered, which is to replace old collagen with fresh, new collagen. Patients start to see results in a few weeks and continue to see improvements over the next four to six months, as newer, stronger collagen is formed. Patients will note a softening of the creases around their nose and mouth, a slimmer, younger look around the cheeks and neck, and generally a firmer feel to the skin.
Candidates for Ultherapy Treatment
Who is the best candidate for Ultherapy? Women and men who have mild to moderate skin laxity are great candidates. Ultherapy can also be used as a complementary treatment to other skin rejuvenation procedures such as Sculptra™ as well as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and other laser procedures geared toward surface issues. If more tightening is required, procedures can be repeated in 6 months. Ultherapy has become a very popular treatment for patients, especially those not ready, economically, logistically, or psychologically, for surgery. – with Ultherapy™!
