So many times I’ve heard patients tell me all of the sudden their skin has fallen, lines are getting deeper, and the aging process has taken over faster than they can keep up with! I tell them there is a solution, and a perfectly natural one at that. For years health care professionals have used ultrasound on our bodies, and now it’s used safely to help tighten our skin. Yes, you read that correctly. Ultherapy is the only FDA approved skin tightening treatment for face and neck on the market. It delivers energy through ultrasound helping to achieve the skin you loved, admired, and let’s face it- took for granted when you were younger. Do you remember that plush, firm skin you once had?
“But, I don’t want anyone to know I’ve had a procedure.” I can appreciate and understand that patients want privacy, want to look beautiful naturally, and don’t have time to check out of their busy lives for extended down time. If I told you, you can come in to see the dermatologist and a couple of hours later leave with the potential of looking years younger without any down time- would you believe me? Through ultrasound energy new collagen and elastin begins to grow and continues to do so for a 6 month period. Yes, your skin will be tighter!
Now that I’ve told you what amazing changes Ultherapy can make in your skin’s appearance, let’s talk about what to expect during and after treatment. We all know that in order to achieve greatness, we must put forth the effort. Since the energy being delivered is heated, there are times of discomfort. At Torrey Pines Dermatology we take our patients’ comfort seriously and we use many different techniques to ensure that each procedure is as comfortable as possible. Post-procedure, some patients experience mild tenderness for up to a couple of weeks after having Ultherapy. There is minimal redness and no peeling. Although it’s true that most patients are extremely satisfied with just one treatment, a follow up treatment to gain even more tightening can be performed 6 months after the first treatment. Call us now to schedule your Ultherapy and see how a noninvasive “facelift” can rejuvenate you!
