What is Ultherapy
Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi offers patients a nonsurgical approach for skin tightening. Using the body's own regenerative response to ultrasonic energy stimulation, Ultherapy can gently and gradually lift the skin by targeting the deeper layers of tissue. Dr. Khorsandi uses Ultherapy at VIP Plastic Surgery to lift the eyebrow, to treat loose skin under the chin and on the neck, and to smooth lines and wrinkles on the chest area of a woman (her décolletage). During Ultherapy treatment, the heat stimulates the production of collagen. The result, after several months of healing, is skin that is more supple and firmer.
"VIP Plastic Surgery is the Best! Dr. K recommended I did Ultherapy for my eyes and the results have been great! It's been about 2 months since I got it done and my eyes only keep looking better and better. His staff is awesome, specially his assistant Liz. She was so caring and made sure I was doing okay through out the procedure she was very patient and attentive the whole time! I would def recommend VIP Plastic Surgery to everyone."- C.F. / Google / May 01, 2015
Ultherapy is a noninvasive procedure that can be performed at VIP Plastic Surgery for no longer than 30 minutes. During the treatment, a handpiece will be guided around the areas to be treated as ultrasound waves are emitted. These wavers will trigger collagen development, which will gradually result in healthier skin. There will be no pain, and discomfort is limited. In some cases, several treatments may be required for optimal results.
Your Skin After Ultherapy
There is a noticeable improvement with the skin’s appearance right after treatment. The actual results will be gradual as collagen multiplies, enhancing the skin structure. Optimal results are evident around the third month. There may be slight redness or swelling after treatment which subsides after a few hours. The patient will experience no downtime, and will be able to go back to normal activities immediately. It is important to set realistic expectations with this approach as it cannot produce the same results as a surgical procedure.
The average cost for a full face treatment is around $3,000. Smaller areas usually cost less. Brows average around $1,500 while lower or mid-face sections run around $2,000. Costs can increase when it comes to the number of treatments needed or if a combination of areas are performed on. Patients should understand several treatments might be required.
Who Should Get It?
Individuals who are averse to surgical cosmetic procedures can benefit the most with Ultherapy. The results will be gradual, but the quality of improvement is significant as the healing starts within the skin. It is the perfect treatment for those who still have a good skin tone but begins to see signs of skin laxity. Most commonly, those who are aged 30 – 40 seek this treatment to slow down aging effects.
Will I see Long Term Results?
Improvement may be seen right after treatment; however, optimal results become more noticeable after a few months. The treatment is safe to be repeated especially after one year.
How many Ultherapy Treatments?
The number of sessions depends on the patient’s skin condition and aesthetic goals. Most patients who still have a good skin tone can have significant results with a single treatment. For those who show more symptoms of skin aging, several treatments may be needed to produce the wanted results.
