Dr. Taylor is pleased to introduce the addition of Ultherapy® to his practice. Ultherapy® is a new category of treatment that uses micro-focused ultrasound to non-invasively lift lax facial tissue.
For the first time ever, Ultherapy® enables practitioners to direct sound waves not only into the skin but deep under the skin to the same tissue addressed in surgery. This gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Besides the visible effects of lifting and tightening, there is also an invisible result from Ultherapy® with the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness.
The beauty of Ultherapy® is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body's own subtle healing response to gently, gradually and reliably restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Unlike lasers and radiofrequency, the ultrasound energy is focused below the skin’s surface so there’s no damage to the skin, no patient downtime and, typically, only one treatment is needed. Patients may enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take 2 - 3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen. Further improvements can appear up to 6 months including elevation of the brow, reduced hooding of the eyelids, softening of the wrinkles around the eyes, a shifting of the cheek tissue upward, improvement in the lines and folds around the nose and mouth and reduced sagging of the neck and under the chin.
Dr. Taylor has said, "This isn't a replacement for the dramatic effects of surgery, but Ultherapy® offers a natural, 'no downtime' approach to noticeably improve lax skin and is one of the best non-surgical alternatives to facial and neck rejuvenation to come along."
A good candidate is someone with skin that has "relaxed" to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Schedule your free consultation with Dr. Taylor today to determine if you are a good candidate for this new cutting-edge procedure. Call today 732-483-1800.
