Ultherapy™ is a new, minimally-invasive technique for lifting the loose skin of the face and neck. This simple, non-surgical procedure uses ultrasound energy to strengthen the skin from the inside-out. There is no downtime and patients will notice a gradual lifting of the skin and a more refreshed facial appearance after just one or two treatments.
Ultherapy™ is a good procedure for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity, especially those who are seeking a non-surgical alternative to the traditional facelift. Ultherapy™ can improve a drooping brow and creases around the nose and mouth., create a more youthful and slimmer contour in the cheeks and neck, and produce a generally firmer look and feel to the skin. This is also a good complementary treatment to other skin rejuvenation procedures, and it can be used by younger patients as part of a proactive approach to anti-aging.
How Does it Work?
Dr. Miller and Dr. Steinbrech perform Ultherapy™ on an outpatient basis at their JCAHO accredited office-based surgery facility at Gotham Plastic Surgery of New York City. Procedure times average thirty to forty-five minutes and there is no need for anesthesia. Ultherapy™ is unique because it is able to reach the deeper support structures of the skin just as with a surgical facelift but without the need for surgery.
When applied to the treatment area, the ultrasound energy triggers the production of new collagen for immediate results along with continued improvement over time as the new, stronger collagen continues to grow. There is no downtime and patients are able to immediately return to their normal routine. Results last one year or longer.
