Collagen, produced deep beneath the skin, is responsible for skin elasticity. As an individual ages, collagen production slows down, causing the skin to loosen and sag. The face and neck are often the first areas to show a loss of elasticity. While cosmetic surgery can effectively tighten and lift aging skin, many individuals are unable to undergo surgery, whether it is due to cost, health, or not having enough time for post-operative recovery. Technological advancements have led to the availability of minimally-invasive skin tightening procedures, which can rejuvenate aging skin without surgery or downtime, usually at a lower cost than a comparable surgical procedure. Ultherapy is one such treatment, using ultrasound to regrow collagen without affecting the skin.
Advanced Dermatology, PC, with offices in Ridgewood, Bergen County, and elsewhere in the NY/NJ area, offers Ultherapy to patients seeking non-invasive treatment of loose, sagging skin on the face and/or neck. Our board-certified dermatologists are expertly trained in Ultherapy and have successfully performed many treatments. The non-invasive nature of Ultherapy makes it available to many individuals that may not have qualified for surgery.
To find our if Ultherapy is right for you, a consultation with one of our Ridgewood dermatologists will be necessary. During your consultation, you will be examined and your medical history will be reviewed. You will also have the opportunity to discuss your expectations of the Ultherapy treatment and ask any questions you may have. If Ultherapy is right for you, your treatment will be scheduled and the treatment process will be explained in great detail.
Your Ultherapy treatment will be performed in the comfort of our office and you will remain awake the entire time. Your face will be cleansed and the Ultherapy device is then passed over your face. Some patients may experience discomfort, although there are ways to maximize your comfort. Ultherapy treatments typically last between 30 and 80 minutes.
You will be free to resume regular activities immediately after Ultherapy. For the first few hours after treatment, some patients experience redness, puffiness or swelling; however, this is only temporary. Results may be noticeable immediately after Ultherapy and continue to evolve over the next 3 months, as the collagen replenishes. Since Ultherapyp does not alter the aging process, additional treatments may be desired in the future.
