Are you dealing with loose skin on the face or upper body? Are you embarrassed about your skin laxity? Have you considered a surgical facelift but you were turned off by the idea of surgery or the cost?

If you answered yes to the above questions, you may be the perfect candidate for a treatment called Ultherapy. It is a revolutionary way for patients to tighten and tone areas of the face such as the chin, neck, and eyebrows using ultrasound technology. Ultrasonic emissions tighten the facial skin by stimulating the supportive layers of the skin and boosting the production of collagen. The treatment is completely safe and is FDA-approved to provide a non-invasive facelift.

The treatment uses a device along the skin to deliver the ultrasound energy deep into the skin. A single treatment takes approximately an hour to an hour and a half, and is done in-office. Before you undergo treatment, Dr. Christine Lee discusses what to expect before, during, and after the procedure.

Although you may notice immediate improvement in your skin after your treatment, the complete results show over time. This is due to the production of collagen that builds over weeks, even months. After approximately six months, you will see the drastic results since your initial treatment.

Dr. Christine Lee, of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute offers Ultherapy for patients who are not quite ready for surgical intervention or who are seeking an affordable alternative to plastic surgery. She is a board certified dermatologist who has been nationally recognized for her work and the results that she provides. The team at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute are committed to offering quality results in a way that is both safe and effective.
