Premature aging can change the proportions of your face and neck, leading to increased wrinkles and loose skin. The major determinants of facial aging include genetics, loss of skin elasticity, and UV sun exposure. Many of the treatments available at Kare Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology, one of the best plastic surgery clinic at Beverly Hills, can reverse the effects of aging, thereby tightening the skin and reducing wrinkles.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses Highly focused ultrasound to tighten the structural matrix of the face and neck. The major goals of Ultherapy are to decrease wrinkling and loose skin on the eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, jawline, and neck.
To learn more about Ultherapy in combination with our most popular cosmetic treatments including Botox, Dermal fillers, and laser skin tightening, schedule a consultation with the best plastic surgeon in Santa Monica, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian and his team of clinical nurses.
How does Ultherapy work? Ultherapy uses highly focused energy to directly stimulate collagen and elastin within the soft tissue of the face and neck. It can be used alongside Botox and dermal fillers and acts to enhance skin tightening in the deep tissue of the face. Ultherapy is FDA Approved and works deep within the skin. We also use Ultherapy to tighten non-facial areas including the abdomen, legs, thighs, and arms.
How long does Ultherapy take to perform?
Ultherapy is an office-based procedure that takes roughly 30 minutes to one hour to complete. Most patients report some discomfort, but the entire process is tolerable without pain medication or analgesics. We can use the opportunity to also perform Botox, dermal fillers, or lasers during the same session. Ultherapy results are seen immediately and tend to improve over the ensuing 8 to 12 weeks.
Dermal Filler Options: Dermal fillers can be used to complement Ultherapy on the cheeks and lips because they can restore lost volume to the soft tissue of the face. Kare Plastic Surgery offers hyaluronic acid gel fillers and collagen-stimulating fillers such as Radiesse and Sculptra. There are many different types of hyaluronic acid fillers including Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, Belotero, and Versa.
Chemical peels: Our signature chemical peels include TCA (Trichloroacetic acid) and Retinoic acid to help treat abnormal dark pigmentation and melasma on the face. Cosmelan peels and the ZO 3 peel are offered in our Santa Monica office.
