Who: Anyone looking to learn about the latest advancements in aesthetic, non-surgical facial procedures.
What: Ultherapy, a first-of-its-kind cosmetic treatment to restore youth to the face, is now available at Van Dyke Laser & Skin. Ultherapy, which was recently FDA approved for the neck and chin line, is an alternative to surgical facelifts. Using a non-invasive method, Ultherapy harnesses the body´s natural healing processes in order to build new collagen and lift the skin in a matter of weeks.
For the first time, physicians are able to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin; beneath the dermal layer. Using DeepSEE M-FUV (Micro-Focused Ultrasound with Visualization), Ultherapy targets a skin structure located between facial bones and fat, which is known as the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System). This structure is typically addressed by means of cosmetic surgery, but with Ultherapy, this area can be targeted without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
With just one Ultherapy treatment on the neck and chin line, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months as new, stronger collagen is created. Further improvements can appear up to six months following the procedure, as the collagen-building process continues to lift the skin.
The treatment typically takes between 30- and 60-minutes. Afterward, patients are able to return to normal activities right away, and there are no special measures they need to take.
“Ultherapy represents a whole new category within aesthetic medicine,” says Susan Van Dyke, M.D. “It is an ideal cosmetic procedure for those looking for natural yet noticeable results.”
While the results do not duplicate those of surgery, Ultherapy´s gradual improvements make it a compelling option for people who have mild to moderate skin laxity as well as those who want to “stay ahead of the game” and those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery. Tens of thousands of Ultherapy treatments have been provided worldwide, and Dr. Susan Van Dyke is pleased to be at the forefront in the U.S. of this clinical advance.
When: Ultherapy is available now at Van Dyke Laser & Skin.
