For years, Seattle’s Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center has been helping patients address their most pressing skin concerns – wrinkles, sun damage, stubborn fat and more.
Today, the center’s founder and director, Dr. Jennifer Reichel, reports on one treatment that could finally mean an end to loose skin: Ultherapy®.
“Ultherapy has quickly become one of the most requested procedures at our practice,” reports Dr. Reichel. “Patients love that they can tackle loose skin quickly, easily and most importantly, effectively.” Unlike invasive surgical techniques, Ultherapy uses ultrasound to heat deep tissue and promote collagen production.
“The benefits of Ultherapy are far-reaching,” explains Dr. Reichel. “Commonly applied to the cheeks and neck, the treatment works to tighten, tone and uplift the skin.” Treating the face and neck from the inside out, Ultherapy promotes a slimmer, more youthful appearance without disturbing overlying skin.
Asked to speculate on the success behind Ultherapy, Dr. Reichel offered this: “The patient-side benefits of Ultherapy are really what make it so special,” explains Dr. Reichel. “Besides being completely non-invasive, Ultherapy offers no downtime and the results are exceptionally natural.” Commonly referred to as a “lunch break procedure,” an Ultherapy session generally lasts between 30 and 60 minutes.
Ultherapy is also unique in its precise imaging technologies. As the manufacturer’s website explains, Ultherapy is “…the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.”
Asked to conclude on the future of Ultherapy, Dr. Reichel offered this: “For years, patients have been looking for a way to tackle loose skin without having to go under the knife in an invasive surgical procedure. Ultherapy seems to be exactly what we’ve been waiting for.”
