I have been using Beth for a while now for my Botox injections and she is wonderful! She is always very pleasant, listens to whatever I need done whether we need to make changes from last visit or if we stay exactly the same. Always on time, knows what she is doing and takes extra care to make sure the procedure is quick, painless and...
While aging is an exciting and normal process, there is no reason you need to look your age. Skin rejuvenation treatments can be used to minimize the signs of facial aging, including reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. While many techniques are available, Ultherapy offers a non-surgical approach to fighting the aging process. Here are a few of the reasons that we recommend Ultherapy for our patients, family, and friends.
Reverses Signs of Aging
As your skin ages, it naturally changes and begins to thin. Changes in your skin’s connective tissue can reduce the skin’s strength and elasticity and top-layer blood vessels can become increasingly fragile. Ultherapy is particularly effective for aging skin since it is able to access the deep layers of tissue without disturbing the sensitive surface skin cells.
As the only FDA-approved procedure designed to non-invasively lift skin, Ultherapy uses the energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep lying layers of skin, encouraging collagen production. Collagen, a natural protein, helps the skin look youthful, firm, and elastic. As new collagen is created, the skin naturally begins to lift and tone over time. While treatment results will appear slowly over the course of two to three months, improvements can continue to appear for up to six months following a treatment procedure. Results can last up to a year and can be extended further with additional touch-up treatments.
Discreet and Non-Surgical
Ultherapy offers a nonsurgical way to lift, tone, and tighten the skin. Unlike laser resurfacing, Ultherapy does not strip the top skin layers and, as such, does not leave behind peeling or scabbing. Because it does not use lasers or surgical incisions, Ultherapy causes only mild discomfort and patients can resume regular activity immediately following treatment. Results appear gradually over two to three months, allowing you to discreetly and gracefully advance towards a more youthful appearance.

A procedure free of knives and incisions, Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. The procedure take approximately an hour, results in only mild discomfort, and allows patients to return to regular activity immediately following their treatment. The results begin to appear approximately two weeks after the procedure.

While there are many changes that our body will go through as part of the natural aging process, one of the most obvious tends to be wrinkles. Because creases, folds, or ridges in the skin are more likely to appear on sun-exposed skin, our faces are often one of the first areas to be impacted. Though you can’t stop your body from aging, you can minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Read on to learn more about the causes of wrinkles and how you can treat them.
Wrinkles are a normal part of aging. How quickly, and in what fashion, you develop wrinkles will depend largely on genetics—the primary determinant of skin structure and texture. Environmental exposures such as sun, heat, wind, and dust can contribute to wrinkling. Smoking can also accelerate the skin’s aging process. Women tend to be more prone to wrinkles than men as a result of fewer lubricating sweat glands. In general, as people age, their skin becomes thinner, drier, and less elastic. It also becomes less able to protect itself from damage. These factors combine to create wrinkles.
Prevent wrinkles from excessively or prematurely occurring by practicing good skin care. First and foremost, protect your skin from the sun by limiting your time spent in direct sunlight and always using sunscreen when outdoors. Avoiding smoking and eating a healthy diet can also help contribute to young-looking skin.
If you are concerned about the appearance of wrinkles, speak to a medical aesthetics practitioner to discuss treatment options. Microdermabrasion, a treatment designed to exfoliate the top layer of skin, can be useful in minimizing the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles. By removing the skin’s top layer of dead skin cells, microdermabrasion gives a fresher and smoother skin appearance, diminishing lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and sun damage. For deeper wrinkles or facial creases, Botox injections are often effective. By blocking the chemical signals that cause muscles to contract, Botox encourages the skin to flatten and provides a less wrinkled and smoother appearance.
