Drs. Vonu, Blanchard, Zwicklbauer, and Lofgren of Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads are pleased to provide a wide selection of treatments for men and women in their state-of-the-art facility. One treatment that can be used to tighten the skin without plastic surgery is Ultherapy.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is best described as a skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound energy. Ultrasound energy can reduce skin laxity and result in firmer skin. This also means less fine lines and wrinkles, making it the perfect nonsurgical treatment for individuals who are interested in turning back the signs of aging without a facelift.
Does Ultherapy work?
Our team of professionals only provide treatments that offer noticeable results. For individuals who want to avoid facial surgery but are interested in reversing the unwanted signs of aging, Ultherapy might be the best treatment option for these individuals. Ultherapy is safe, and the device has been cleared for cosmetic use by the United States Food and Drug Administration. All devices used in our practice are FDA-cleared as safe and effective.
Is Ultherapy painful?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy, which can give a warming sensation to the skin. Our patients find that this heating is well-tolerated and comfortable, and will often not require the use of topical anesthetics on the skin prior to treatment.
Who administers Ultherapy treatments?
One of our experienced and trained providers at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads will administer Ultherapy treatments to ensure safety and effectiveness.
How many treatments do I need?
While improvement to the skin’s laxity is noticeable after the first treatment, multiple treatment sessions spaced weeks apart will offer the best results. Results are gradual and natural-looking. Some patients may combine Ultherapy with cosmetic injectables such as neurotoxins, dermal fillers, or even collagen stimulators to obtain even more noticeable enhancements.
