Dr. Julie Russak and the Russak Dermatology Clinic team in New York is offering Ultherapy, which is an FDA approved non-surgical ultrasound treatment to lift skin on the neck, on the brow and under the chin.
For those who are not yet ready for surgery but are looking to correct skin laxity in the face and neck, Ultherapy is a great alternative. Ultherapy was named “Best In-Office Treatment” by the beauty authority, NewBeauty magazine, for their 2013 Beauty Choice Awards.
It works by utilizing ultrasound technology to deliver focused energy to the deepest layers of skin, the foundation layer of structural support that is usually only addressed during surgical treatments. The ultrasound energy creates a thermal effect under the skin that acts as a catalyst to initiate the body’s natural healing processes, repairing worn collagen and generating new, strong collagen and elastin.
The procedure takes 60-90 minutes. Patients will begin to see final results over the course of 2-3 months, with ongoing improvement noticed even as late as 6 months as collagen continues to strengthen and build up. It does not affect the surface of the skin and there is no downtime, injections, or immediate, drastic change, only natural and gradual lifting and tightening.
