    Right Quote Words can not describe how grateful I am to Dr. Lee for saving my face and honestly I would say my life. She's an absolute master and genius at what she does. I wouldn't even be able to show my face in public now if it weren't for her. I had the worst scars on my face that were so bad they scared other people. These scars were caused by a doctor who burned my face with a laser. I would have been happy just looking a little better but Dr. Lee was able to make my face look almost normal again. I can cover most of what's left with make-up now and most people can't tell what had happened to me. I still have internal scars from what that other doctor did but at least the outside scars are pretty much gone. I wish I had never had to go thru all this but I'm just grateful that there was someone like Dr. Lee who could help me get my face back. Right Quote

    Right Quote Absolutely the best results. I wish I had gone to her first instead of wasting my money with no-nothing nurses are doctors who talk a good game but are merely dabblers. I got the results I needed and now look 15 years younger. She is a miracle worker! Right Quote

    Right Quote She's the best doctor!

    Dr. Lee treated my moles and also the moles on my 2 young girls with laser. They were very scared but Dr. Lee did a great job getting them to trust her. She was very patient and kind. AFter the first time, my daughters thought it was no big deal and were no longer scared. She did a great job removing the moles and we're all so happy! I wouldn't trust anyone else to treat me or my family. She's the best! Right Quote

    Right Quote The only doctor who helped my rosacea

    I have really bad rosacea and sensitive skin and haven't been able to find any doctor who can help me...that is, until I found Dr. M. Christine Lee. I've seen several other very well-known derms and spent tons of money trying to get my rosacea under control. I've had fotofacials, IPL, VBeam, you name it, I've had it. Nothing has really made a difference. I almost gave up until I found out about Dr. Lee from the online rosacea support group. I heard great things about a laser procedure she developed. I started seeing her over a year ago and have gone thru several treatments and I am THRILLED!!!! I feel like a normal person for the first time in my life. No more redness and burning. Her treatment has been a miracle for me. All I can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Right Quote

FAQs on Ultherapy

Related Categories
What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is an ultrasound device that is used to deliver energy deep within the skin to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin, reducing skin laxity and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.

Is Ultherapy safe?

Ultherapy has been cleared by the FDA as both safe and effective for tightening and toning the skin.

What does Ultherapy treatment feel like?

The Ultherapy device delivers ultrasound energy. Most patients are completely comfortable during the procedure and describe it as a warm massage. Most treatment times take approximately 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

What should I do before the procedure?

There is no preparation necessary before the Ultherapy procedure though some patients may prefer to take an over-the-counter pain medication to ensure comfort.

What kind of downtime can I expect after Ultherapy?

The great thing about Ultherapy is that patients can resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment. Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute will warn patients that their skin may appear slightly red or flushed for a few hours after the procedure, but this is temporary. Patients may also experience a tingling sensation of the skin or slight swelling but this is normal and short-term. If bruising or numbness occurs, patients are urged to contact Dr. Christine Lee for her to review and follow-up.

Are results from Ultherapy immediate?

Results from Ultherapy are not immediate, but are seen over the course of time as collagen production works at restoring the youthfulness to the face. Patients will notice a gradual reduction in the fine lines and wrinkles as well, which is a sign that the skin is tightening and firming up and treatment has been effective.

How many treatment sessions do I need to see results?

Most patients can benefit from just one Ultherapy session, though others may want to have more than one procedure done if they are dealing with more moderate skin laxity or want continued improvement. Dr. Christine Lee can work with patients to determine if more than one treatment is necessary for their desired results.
