Ultherapy Newport Beach
For those looking for an alternative to a facelift, La Boutique Aesthetic Clinic is proud to offer Ultherapy, a new non-surgical skin-tightening face treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. This non-surgical ultrasound treatment provides amazing results without the pain, long recovery and downtime associated with traditional surgeries. Ultherapy employs ultrasound to lift and tone loose or sagging skin in the brow region, face, or neck. The deposits of focused ultrasound energy reaches just the right depth below the skin (the same depth reached by surgical methods) to stimulate the growth of new collagen. Ultherapy reconditions mild to moderately loose skin, and in less than an hour, you’ll be well on your way to tighter, firmer skin.
The majority of patients only need one Ultherapy treatment. You may see an effect immediately, but most of the toning and lifting takes place over 2-3 months, as the collagen-building process continues. Further improvements can appear up to 6 months following the procedure. Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh collagen for up to a year following the procedure.
Many patients have questions about the safety and effectiveness of Ultherapy because it is still a fairly new procedure. The following list of FAQs attempts to answer most of these questions.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a unique non-surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate areas with skin laxity. The treatment is based on ultrasound waves, which can gently support the process of skin tightening, lifting, and toning. Ultrasound energy focuses on the targeted areas to trigger the body’s natural healing mechanism and produce a youthful appearance of the skin.
Ultherapy aesthetic treatment is typically used to improve skin elasticity in areas such as the face, neck, and chest. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seifyprovides Ultherapy through his state of the art La Boutique Aesthetic Clinic to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.
The FDA has given clearance to the device used in Ultherapy skin rejuvenation procedure. The device optimizes ultrasound energy to cause stimulation of the natural collagen in the deeper skin layers. Collagen provides structural support to the skin and prevents it from sagging. One of the best benefits of this Aesthetic Clinic treatment is that it allows heat energy to penetrate deep into the skin to provide more natural looking results from inside out.
Controlled delivery of ultrasound based energy beams ensures a uniform, mild treatment that does not harm the healthy top layers of the skin. Aesthetic goals with Ultherapy are achieved in a smooth, painless way. One treatment session of Ultherapy may last from about 30 to 90 minutes, which will depend on the extent of treatment and the number of areas to be treated.
Full results of Ultherapy will be established over a period of three to four months. As fresh collagen production is induced in the deeper skin layers, the outer skin will start getting firmer and smoother. An average patient may require only about one to two treatment sessions of Ultherapy to achieve optimal outcomes. La Boutique Aesthetic Clinic receives patients from Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby locations for Ultherapy.
An Ultherapy expert will assess the patient’s skin type, condition of wrinkles and lines, and their personal aesthetic goals before recommending this treatment. Individuals with mild to moderate loss of skin elasticity can achieve best results with Ultherapy, particularly if they are averse to the idea of plastic surgery treatments.
A gentle, non-invasive procedure such as Ultherapy is also suited for younger candidates who may choose to receive a maintenance procedure to delay the onset of signs of aging. Busy mothers and working people choose this procedure more readily because of its minimal risk of complications and minimal or no downtime.
How does it Work?
Ultherapy procedure does not involve any aggressive technique such as traditional surgery, laser surgery, chemical peels, or even injections. The treatment is performed without a single cut or needle. Controlled energy is delivered into the skin layers through ultrasound waves in a targeted manner.
The waves provide consistent, uniform heat to the weak tissue to tighten loose skin without causing any disruptions in the top layer of the skin. The procedures help to visibly lift and tighten loose skin, and restore a more youthful appearance.
