Ultherapy

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.

INDICATIONS

Loose skin along the jaw line                                   

Heavy brows                                                                

Crepey skin of the chest                                          

Crepey skin upper inner arms and thighs            

Crepey skin above knees                                         

THE SCIENCE

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.


THE TREATMENT

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.
