Sculptra

Sculptra is an injectable liquid that works subtly and gradually over time to give you a younger appearance and recontour your face.

Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable, Sculptra stimulates your body’s own natural collagen production to fill out areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging. Sculptra is intended for healthy individuals as a one-time regimen of roughly four injectable sessions spaced over three weeks.

Juvederm

Juvederm is dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that is present in the human body.

Over time, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body decreases resulting in loss of volume and changes to your face. Juvederm replaces the lost volume and gives your face a more youthful appearance. These injections are most effective in the creases that develop around your nose and mouth but can also be used in the cheeks, lips and around the eyes.

Restylane

Restylane is one of the first hyaluronic acid-based fillers mass marketed for cosmetic purposes.

Like collagen, it is a substance naturally found in the skin which decreases in natural production as we age. Restylane is an injection into the nasolabial folds (the area between the upper lip and cheeks) that results in a more natural-looking and youthful appearance. It can also plump up fine vertical lines around your mouth and fill out scars such as pockmarks from acne. Restylane is frequently used to enhance lip volume. It lasts between three to six months.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin naturally without downtime or the need for surgery. It is a non-invasive, FDA approved procedure designed to lift the skin on your neck, chest, décolletage, and under the chin.

Ultrasound has been used safely and effectively in the medical field for over 50 years. Ultherapy has been established as a leading treatment for signs of aging. You can expect to see a tightening effect immediately after your treatment. However, the more significant results will appear over the next three months as new collagen is produced and gradually lifts and tightens skin on the treated area. Ultherapy may not provide results as drastic as a facelift but it is a proven non-invasive alternative for people who don’t want the downtime, trauma and cost of a facelift. Ultherapy can be an option if you want to extend the effects of your cosmetic surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ultherapy

What does collagen do for my face?

Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that gives skin its appearance of youth. By keeping the skin firm, toned and elastic, collagen aids in maintaining a young and rejuvenated appearance. During the aging process, collagen loses its elasticity and ability to fight the effects of gravity, which pulls the skin downward. Ultherapy is a jump start to the repair process that produces new, healthy collagen.

Is there any downtime with ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure with no associated downtime. You are able to return to normal activities right away. There are no special measures or precautions needed following a treatment.

How many ultherapy treatments will I need?

Most ultherapy patients only need one treatment but some benefit from more treatments depending on the desired result. It depends on how much laxity exists in your skin and your body’s response to the ultrasound and collagen-building process. These treatment options are something you can discuss with your provider.

How is Ultherapy different from lasers?

Laser treatments address issues in the top and superficial layers of the skin such as fine lines, wrinkles and pigment changes. Ultherapy is unique because it addresses the signs of aging at the foundational layer of the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery to lift and lend support to the skin. Therefore, the two technologies are considered complementary.

What is unique about Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive, FDA approved treatment that specifically targets the foundation below the skin addressed in cosmetic surgery without the need for cutting or disrupting the top layer of skin. Being the only procedure that utilizes ultrasound imaging allows your provider to see the layers of tissue being targeted during the treatment and ensure the energy is directed exactly where it will deliver the best result.

Are there any side effects with Ultherapy?

You can expect slight redness in the treated area for up to an hour after treatment. You may experience mild swelling, tingling or tenderness. These potential side effects are mild and temporary in nature. There are no special precautions or restrictions on any activities following the treatment.

Microneedling

Imagine using your skin's natural healing ability to fight lines, reduce acne scarring and improve texture!

Micro needling is a non-invasive practice that can benefit all skin types. The treatment inflicts invisible, vertical micro-injuries to the top layer of skin to stimulate your skins repair process and increase the production of collagen. The result is younger looking skin with more firmness and elasticity. There is no downtime. This treatment is effective in treating a wide range of concerns: a loss in volume, acne, fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone making it beneficial for patients of all ages.
