Dr. Joel Schlessinger: the first Ultherapy provider in the state of Nebraska.
Modern Medicine offers an update on Ultherapy, a non-surgical ultrasound procedure to lift, tighten and tone skin. They quote Dr. Joel Schlessinger.
This article was initially published in Dermatology Times. Since its publication, the doctor has become the first Ultherapy provider in the state of Nebraska. Ultherapy is FDA approved and can now be used on the face and neck and, best of all, the procedure takes fewer than 90 minutes – and you can even go out afterwards, without anyone being the wiser about what work you’ve had done.
With this technology, focused ultrasound energy is directed to targeted areas of your skin via a smooth applicator. The tissue below your skin heats to stimulate the growth of new collagen. This improves the appearance of your eyes, cheeks and upper neck without altering your skin’s surface.
With this therapy, laser targets the same tissue that would be focused upon in cosmetic surgery. For more information about how Ultherapy works, take a look at these slides, which include before and after photos:
Are you wondering if you’d make a good candidate for Ultherapy?
If you fit into these categories, then this may be the treatment for you:
- Skin has relaxed to the point that it looks and feels less firm
- Aged 30 to 65
- Mild to moderate skin laxity (brow descent, hooded lids, jowls, chin sagging, flattening of mid-cheek and so forth)
- NOT pregnant
- NOT lactating
Most people only need one treatment, and that lasts for 12 to 18 months. If you are fair skinned, you may notice an hour or so of flushed skin after the procedure.
