Ultherapy®, from Ulthera, Inc: See the Beauty of Sound™
As one of the first practices to be trained on Ultherapy®, Dr. Grossman is now one of the most experienced dermatologists in using this groundbreaking technology.
Featured on Dr. Oz, Rachael Ray and in The New York Times, Ultherapy® is a non-invasive face and neck treatment that uses ultrasound to lift and tone loose, lax skin. When it first became available, the technology was used to lift the brow area for a fresher, younger-look; today, dermatologists can treat a wider range of areas including the jawline, chin and the lower neck.
In fact, Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved non-invasive neck lift treatment. It’s one of the most popular procedures in the practice and patients are extremely pleased with the improvements to the entire lower neck area.
How does Ultherapy® work?
This innovative procedure combines ultrasound imaging with focused ultrasound therapy.
Ultrasound enables physicians to actually see the layers of the soft tissue – to treat the deep support structures of connective tissue that acts as the skin’s foundation. Ultherapy® uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually restore memory to the skin and underlying tissue, reconditioning the network of collagen fibers to withstand the effects of gravity.
A session can last 30-90 minutes, depending on areas treated. Improvement can begin immediately for some patients – followed by further improvement over two to three months. Clinical studies show consistent lifting of the brow after just one treatment, creating a refreshed, more ‘open’ look around the eyes. Patients have also noted a softening of the creases around their nose and mouth, a sleeker more defined jawline and less laxity under the chin and around the neck.
