They say a woman is betrayed first by her hands and her neck.
But there is a third region that tends to show the effects of a suntan or another decade of the good life, and that is the décolletage. What’s the point of owning those clothes with the beautiful plunging necklines if you are embarrassed to wear them?
Fortunately, medical science has not overlooked the crinkly cleavage problem. Using ultrasound, a reliable, time-tested and safe technology, is the FDA-approved treatment called Ultherapy.
Prior to this, our options were more limited:
Ultherapy, on the other hand, is not a short-term solution. Ultherapy stimulates the body to create more collagen and elastin in the subcutaneous
layers of the skin. Results start to appear in about three months, and the treated area will continue to improve for six months or more.*
Ultherapy is also used as a non-invasive method of tightening the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on eyebrows as well as the décolletage. Treatment takes only about an hour or two and you’ll see progressive improvement as the collagen continues to regenerate.
As a doctor, I’ve been impressed with Ultherapy.
For one thing, our patients are visibly pleased with the results. When patients report a great deal of satistion with a technique, it is gratifying for any clinician.
For another thing, we trust the application method because ultrasound allows us to penetrate the skin without damage.
Plus there is very little down time. It’s not like surgery or a chemical peel.
A PATIENT CAN GO TO WORK THE NEXT DAY AND FEEL COMFORTABLE IN HER SKIN, AS THEY SAY.
And because the technique keeps working after we’re finished, there is a gradual improvement in skin tone and color that doesn’t stop when you walk out of the clinic. That’s a positive change that feels natural.
The best thing is, it’s not a radical treatment and you can come back for multiple sessions. That’s why we say, Ultherapy is not a product, it’s a process. A process that’s undertaken by your own body, in cooperation with Mother Nature.
By combining Ultherapy with platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy— an injection of growth factors from your own blood— we can almost double the
Not every treatment pays off so successfully. As I remind my patients, how many years did it take to accumulate the damage on our skin, our faces, necks and décolletage? A more gradual approach? enlisting your own body to heal the damage? 60 to 90 minutes of treatment time to take a few years off your appearance? We think that’s a pretty good equation.
We haven’t quite defeated Father Time, but we’ve slowed him down considerably— by pitting him against Mother Nature.
