Not every patient is willing to undergo surgery to lift, tighten, and smooth their skin. One non-surgical option for younger looking is Ultherapy. Ultherapy is an FDA approved treatment that uses a device to deliver ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. Ultherapy is a great alternative for those who are not quite ready for surgery or may have problems in an area that is not suitable for surgery such as décolletage, sagging skin on the knee, or inside of the armpits.
Though its main primary use and FDA approval is to treat the neck, lower face, décolletage and brows, Ultherapy can also be a treatment for the top of the knees, inner arms, wrinkling skin above the belly button or the buttocks. With its ultrasonic energy, this treatment causes your body to produce more collagen. Collagen is a vital element in the body to create smoother and tighter skin. As we age, our body’s ability to create this element lessens.
It is important to seek Ultherapy treatment from a professional with proper training. There are many factors to the Ultherapy device that can determine the outcome. Dr. Ellen’s training has given her the knowledge and technique to make educated decisions on how to bring out the best results for each patient. Every patient will have different body characteristics and skin types, and it takes skill and creative thinking to deliver the best possible outcome.
