Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, a leading provider of medical dermatology, cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery in Central Texas, announced today it is now offering Ultherapy®- a first-of-its-kind treatment that uses ultrasound imaging and energy to lift and tighten skin and improve its texture in a way never before achievable without surgery. Ultherapy is the first and only device cleared by the FDA for use as a non-invasive face and neck treatment with a specific indication for eyebrow lift. One of the first effects of gravity is that the brows descend, and the eyes start to appear smaller. Ultherapy lifts the brow, which in turn reduces the excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes and gives a more refreshed, youthful appearance.
“We are now able to achieve significant lifting by focusing ultrasound energy into the deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in surgery, as well as into the skin itself,” said Dr. Gregory Nikolaidis, president of Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery. “With Ultherapy, we can lift and tighten the skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. In other words, we are improving the skin quality from the inside out.”
This state-of-the-art technology enables physicians, for the first time, to actually see (via an LED screen) and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin addressed in surgery without disrupting the uppermost layers of skin. Ultherapy creates an immediate contraction of the skin, but the ultrasound energy also triggers the body’s natural response mechanism, which is to rejuvenate tired collagen and supplement it with fresh, new collagen. This will gradually, over the course of two to three months, strengthen and tone the skin and gently shift it into a more youthful position. While the results do not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy’s gradual improvements make it a compelling option for those who are not quite ready for surgery.
