Collagen, created deep beneath the skin, is responsible for maintaining skin elasticity. As a person ages, collagen production declines and the skin sags. The skin on the face is often the first area where these noticeable signs of aging occur. While facelift and necklift procedures have traditionally corrected such signs of aging, their associated costs, risks, and recovery period made them unattainable to many. Today’s minimally-invasive skin tightening procedures are an attractive option for many individuals with sagging skin on their face and/or neck, requiring minimal to no downtime afterwards.
Advanced Dermatology, PC, a premier dermatology group in Commack, Suffolk County (and elsewhere in the NY/NJ area), offers Ultherapy to tighten loose skin without surgery, scarring or downtime. Its non-invasive nature makes it an excellent choice for individuals that are unable or unwilling to undergo surgery. Ultherapy uses ultrasound to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. Advanced Dermatology’s board-certified dermatologists have been expertly trained in Ultherapy and have successfully performed many treatments. If you are considering Ultherapy in Commack, you will meet with one of our dermatologists to determine whether it is right for you.
During your Ultherapy consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and intended goals. Your dermatologist will also examine you and review your medical history, as certain conditions may exclude individuals from Ultherapy. If you are deemed a suitable candidate for Ultherapy, your treatment will be schedule and the approach will be explained.
Ultherapy treatments are performed in the comfort of our Commack dermatology office. Its minimally-invasive nature allows you to remain awake throughout the entire treatment. Once your face has been cleansed, your dermatologist will apply the Ultherapy handpiece to your face, triggering the rebuilding of collagen beneath the skin. Some patients may experience discomfort during treatment; however, there are ways to minimize discomfort. Ultherapy treatments typically last between 30 and 80 minutes.
You may resume regular activities immediately after Ultherapy. For the first few hours following treatment, flushing, swelling, or puffiness may occur. Results are often noticeable immediately after treatment and continue to improve over the next 3 months as the collagen replenishes. Most patients see satisfactory results from just one Ultherapy treatment. Since Ultherapy does not stop the aging process, additional treatments are often recommended to maintain a youthful appearance.
