Everyone desires taut, youthful skin. To achieve this goal, we are at the mercy of our collagen, which is produced beneath the surface of the skin. As part of the natural aging process, collagen production declines significantly, causing the skin to loosen and sag. The face is usually the first part of the body to show such undesirable signs of aging. Facelift surgery is a common option for correcting skin laxity; however its cost and invasive nature disqualify many from candidacy. Thankfully, people today with skin that has loosened due to aging can achieve youthful skin from non-invasive treatments.

Ultherapy is a popular minimally-invasive skin tightening treatment. It uses ultrasound technology to jump-start the reproduction of collagen beneath the skin. As the collagen rebuilds, the skin is lifted and tightened to a more youthful appearance. Unlike surgery, Ultherapy does not require incisions, does not result in scarring, and requires minimal to no downtime after treatment. If you are interested in Ultherapy, you will meet with one of our Brooklyn dermatologists to determine whether this treatment is right for you.

During your Ultherapy consultation, your dermatologist will examine you and review your medical history. To determine your candidacy, your dermatologist is checking that you have loose skin on your face and that you are in good overall health. If you are deemed a suitable candidate for Ultherapy, your treatment will be scheduled and your dermatologist will explain the treatment approach in great detail.
