For some patients, Ulthera can be a painful treatment. Receiving Ulthera treatment at a lower frequency provides a person with a very similar result as the normal frequency treatment and also reduces the amount of pain experienced during the process.

Facial plastic surgeon, Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, and Jodi Huisman, RN, BSCN, in Beverly Hills, are pleased to announce that they will now providing patients who are more prone to pain with new, non-invasive Ulthera skin rejuvenation at a lower frequency treatment. After monitoring patients over the course of the last few months, Dr. Azizzadeh has viewed fantastic results from those undergoing the low frequency treatment. Though it was once believed that the procedure at a higher frequency would result in better outcomes, Dr. Azizzadeh now believes that turning down the frequency does not always result in a less optimal outcomes.

“For some patients, Ulthera can be a painful treatment. At my practice, I've noticed that performing Ulthera treatment at a lower frequency provides a person with a very similar result as the normal frequency treatment and also reduces the amount of pain experienced during the process,” said Dr. Azizzadeh, board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon.

Ulthera treatment works to tone, lift, and rejuvenate a patient’s skin by using ultrasound technology to penetrate into deep layers of skin to promote natural collagen growth, which ultimately results in a youthful, toned, and wrinkle free appearance. As one of the most highly sought treatments today, Ulthera is quickly becoming known as one of the best facial treatments on the market without having to go under the knife.

“Ulthera uses high-frequency ultra-sound waves that bring oxygen, nutrients, and other skin revitalizing necessities to the person undergoing the treatment. When the treatment is performed at a lower frequency to reduce pain, the patients ultimate goals can still be achieved,” said Dr. Azizzadeh. "Now that we're offering low frequency Ulthera, we'll be able to help more people combat the aging process."

Reducing Ulthera ultrasound frequency for patients wishing to minimize pain may require additional treatments, though everyone responds to the skin rejuvenation procedure differently. Typically, a patient can expect to see results of Ulthera over the course of the next several months following their treatment.

“I usually advise my patients that they may notice results as soon as month one or month two, however optimal results may not be present until six months post treatment,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.

Dr. Azizzadeh completed a fellowship in facial plastic & reconstructive surgery at the prestigious Harvard Medical School and is the author of five bestselling books, including “Master Techniques in Facial Rejuvenation” and “Beverly Hills Beauty Secrets.” He has been recognized as a Beauty Expert and has been featured in popular media outlets such as Entertainment Tonight, The Doctors, LA Times and the NY Times. Dr. Azizzadeh serves on the Physician Advisory Board of Sanofi-Aventis, Mysoscience, Mentor, and SkinMedica, and was awarded the RealSelf Top Botox Experts Award in 2011.
