We are excited to introduce a NEW tightening & lifting procedure to our Cosmetic Practice: Ultherapy, the only non-invasive FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin of the neck, jowls and eyebrows and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the decollete.
Using Ultrasound technology, Ultherapy causes collagen stimulation at the fascia layer, resulting in skin tightening and elevation of the brow, chin, neck and chest with no downtime. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in more than 350,000 treatments worldwide.
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows physicians to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but most of the results appear over 3-6 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery. It can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of prior cosmetic surgery.
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Ultherapy has also been FDA approved to lift and soften wrinkles on the decollete. To learn more about Ultherapy and to find out if this treatment is right for you, please call us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Brozowski in our Berkeley office. We are located across from the Alta Bates hospital just north of Oakland.
