Ulthera was one of the most sought after non-invasive cosmetic treatments of 2012, and is only going to continue to grow in popularity throughout 2013. This new software upgrade is only going to enhance its value.

Board certified facial plastic surgeon Carlo Honrado, MD, FACS, is quick to test latest Ulthera System upgrade including new treatment guidelines for cosmetic lifting procedure, maximizing patient comfortablility, and allowing for overall easier use.

“Ulthera was one of the most sought after non-invasive cosmetic treatments of 2012, and is only going to continue to grow in popularity throughout 2013. This new software upgrade is only going to enhance its value,” says Dr. Honrado. “With its new interface and consistent updates, Ulthera makes it easy for me to deliver high quality results.”

Because this treatment involves no needles, no surgical interventions, and no lasting bruises, Ulthera has quickly become one of the most popular nonsurgical options in the United States for middle-aged men and women to reduce wrinkles and sagging. The Ulthera System is the first and only energy-based device to receive FDA clearance for a non-invasive aesthetic lift indication.

"Physicians can rest assured that when they purchase our System, Ulthera will continue to add value to their investment during each year of ownership, whether it be through a no-charge software upgrade, new clinical indications, additional transducers or enhanced marketing support," according to Ulthera. "In fact, on the heels of this System upgrade, Ulthera also will be launching a U.S. advertising initiative to help spread the word about our progressive Ultherapy treatment, and we are aggressively pursuing more clinical indications as evidenced by the recent FDA clearance for the device to lift tissue on the neck and under the chin."

For facial plastic surgeons, like Dr. Honrado, that is good news. Dr. Honrado performs Ulthera treatments himself, as opposed to have a nurse perform the treatments as seen in many other physicians' offices. “The procedure generally takes less than an hour, and perhaps the biggest benefit are the smooth, dramatic results which would explain its popularity,” says Dr. Honrado.

Treatment areas for Ulthera include the face, neck, jaw line, brow, and eyes. Dr. Honrado says the popularity of Ulthera is based on the “no needles, no surgical interventions, and no lasting bruises” guarantee. Ultrasound uses gentle technology that employs sound waves and when calibrated for cosmetic effects in the face and forehead, these same ultrasound waves can target sagging tissue and tighten specific regions with a safe, low energy dose.

Dr. Carlo Honrado, facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Beverly Hills, is dedicated to providing each patient with a unique and comfortable experience through expert care and consideration. After completing his undergraduate degree from the world-renowned John Hopkins University, Dr. Honrado went on to graduate with a medical degree from the State University of New York and a two-year fellowship in general surgery. Upon completion of his residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Dr. Honrado became double board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by the American Board of Otolaryngology.
