Recently, board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Ozan Sozer, announced the inclusion of the non-invasive cosmetic procedure Ultherapy in his practice at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. Ultherapy is the only current FDA-approved ultrasound treatment designed to lift skin under the chin, on the neck and on the brow.
Ultherapy stimulates the body's natural healing processes, causing the skin to lift on its own over time. This procedure allows doctors to see and treat the deepest support layers of the skin without resorting to surgery. The procedure usually takes about 90 minutes and does not require patients to give up any of their regular activities or go through a prolonged recovery period.
"Ultherapy represents a whole new category within aesthetic medicine," says Dr. Ozan Sozer. "It is an ideal cosmetic procedure for those looking for natural yet noticeable results."
With the first treatment he collagen-building process begins and increases over the course of two to three months. Improvements may continue to appear for as long as six months after treatment begins. Results are not equivalent with those of surgery, but offer an option for those who have relatively mild or moderate skin laxity or who want to take a pro-active approach to sagging skin as well as those who want to prolong cosmetic surgery effects.
