The team at The Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery readily see both adult men and women who are looking to reverse the unwanted signs of aging on the face, specifically the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. While plastic surgery procedures can obviously provide dramatic and noticeable results in treating skin laxity, patients might also want to ask their provider about alternative, nonsurgical solutions to tightening and firming the facial skin. Dr. Wayne Larrabee and his team often recommend patients consider the advantages of treatments such as Ultherapy, a revolutionary way to enhance the skin by tightening and firming it.
How does Ultherapy work?
Many patients who are undergoing Ultherapy treatment are curious as to how the process work. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy that is administered deep within the facial layers. This ultrasound energy heats and stimulates the skin’s natural generation of collagen, a structural protein that is naturally reduced over time. When collagen rebuilds, it firms and tightens the skin, lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and around the jowls.
Why choose Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is completely safe for patients who are looking to firm their skin and achieve a more youthful look without surgical interventions. Ultherapy is safe and approved by the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for skin tightening, and is an affordable and effective treatment for aging skin. It can also be used in conjunction with other services at our practice, including dermal fillers, to achieve dramatic improvements quickly and easily. Patients find that Ultherapy is affordable and eliminates the need for invasive plastic surgeries in the early stages of aging. Patients can avoid scars and risk of infection with Ultherapy, which uses a handheld device around the facial area to administer the ultrasound energy to firm and tighten aging skin. Patients will see the results over the course of several weeks as collagen stores rebuild and the new tissue is more noticeable.
