THE ANSWER TO THE EARLY JOWL
Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses soundwaves to tighten lax skin. It does not require injections or cutting. There is no downtime and no need for pain medication after the treatment. Greenwich Dermatology was the first practice in CT to introduce Ultherapy.
Loose skin along the jaw line
Crepey skin of the chest
Crepey skin upper inner arms and thighs
Crepey skin above knees
High Intensity Focused Ultrasounds (HIFU) are guided by Ulthera’s patented DeepSEE technology to allow for direct visualization under the skin surface so that the soundwaves can be focused with the highest precision on the muscle that needs tightening. This muscle is called the SMAS and is the same one that plastic surgeons tighten during a facelift. The heat energy delivered by the soundwaves into the target tissue triggers a collagen remodeling response resulting in a visible tightening 3 months later.
In order to make patients as comfortable as possible, we now have Pronox available. Pronox delivers a low level laughing gas, which is also used in the delivery room. It is FDA-cleared, safe and allows patients to drive home after their treatment. We do not need to use narcotics.
