Florida-based dermatologist offers patients a non-invasive solution for skin tightening and toning.
Fort Lauderdale, FL ( release-news ) December 11, 2013 - Over time, gravity can take its toll on skin, leaving one with loose skin around the brow, neck, and under the chin. While many people believe that surgery or injections are the best ways to correct the appearance of this loose skin, Ultherapy is quickly becoming a popular alternative to more invasive procedures.
Dr. Roger H. Stewart, M.D., of the Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, says that Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology, combined with the body's natural healing process, to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, causing the skin to tighten. "Ultherapy is a great treatment for patients who do not want an invasive facial surgery or treatment," Dr. Stewart says, "Ultherapy is FDA-approved, and requires no needles, no injections, and no downtime. Ultherapy is designed to improve a patient's appearance, not dramatically alter it."
Dr. Stewart says that, during the procedure, ultrasound waves are applied using a smooth handpiece near a targeted area of skin. He explains that the technology used for the procedure is not a laser, and is quite similar to the ultrasound imaging procedure used for expectant mothers. The procedure focuses on tightening skin from the inside out, with the ultrasound technology stimulating the body's natural regeneration of collagen, which restores skin's elasticity.
"Treatment usually lasts about an hour, and is performed in my office," says Dr. Stewart, "There are few side-effects associated with this treatment, although some patients may experience mild, temporary redness afterwards. Since collagen grows over time, patients can often expect to see continuous improvement in their skin for months following the initial treatment."
"Skin looks far more youthful following Ultherapy," Dr. Stewart continues, "The procedure is best for otherwise healthy adults, who are realistic about what the procedure can offer. While Ultherapy cannot duplicate the results of a procedure like a facelift, it is highly beneficial for patients who are looking for a simple, less-expensive way to restore their appearance in a natural, noninvasive way."
