Benefits of Ultherapy

Many patients associate the signs of aging with fine lines and wrinkles, but this isn’t the only effect it can have on the face. After the age of 30, men and women tend to lose their natural collagen, which is what provides volume and youthfulness. Because of collagen loss, the skin may become loose and sagging. To remedy this, Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute will suggest non-invasive procedures such as Ultherapy.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the collagen building process in the skin while tightening and lifting loose skin around the face, specifically in areas such as the neck, chin, and around the eyes and eyebrows. Dr. Christine Lee has used this treatment on many patients to provide them with an alternative to plastic surgery.

Ultherapy is safe, FDA-cleared, and effective at stimulating the structural support lays of the skin to tighten them and stimulate collagen without affecting the upper layers and surface of the skin. This makes it a revolutionary option for patients who are uneasy about the idea of undergoing an extensive face lift with a plastic surgeon—and dealing with the risks and downtime associated with these procedures.

Ultherapy has many benefits to the patient. Ultherapy is:

  • Affordable
  • Fast
  • Safe
  • Effective
  • Long-lasting
  • Non-surgical

Ultherapy is a way for patients to achieve gradual, natural looking results over the course of several months. While this procedure is not a replacement for surgery, it is a wonderful alternative for patients who have mild to moderate signs of aging and are looking for a way of treating it without the need for surgery. It is often much more affordable and can be a more proactive approach for patients who are worried about developing fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin after the age of 30.

Patients in or around the Walnut Creek area are welcome to contact the practice of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Christine Lee and her team to educate themselves on Ultherapy as a proactive approach to aging skin.
