San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 05, 2014
Ultherapy has long been a popular non-surgical skin tightening treatment for the face and neck, and now it has been approved for use on the decolletage as well. Ultherapy is now the first FDA approved non-surgical means of tightening and rejuvenating skin on the chest area. This is a revolutionary development, as previous methods for decolletage renewal involved long, complicated, and sometimes surgical methods.
“This is a wonderful advance in the field of cosmetic dermatology,” said renowned dermatologist Dr. Sabrina Fabi of Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, who was a lead investigator in the trials. “There are many non-surgical, quick options for refreshing and rejuvenating the face and neck, but the decolletage has not had the same kind of options. The decolletage has become a tell-tale sign of aging, but this no longer has to be the case with the new FDA clearance.”
Ultherapy works by using ultrasound technology to penetrate below the surface of the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin formation. Collagen and elastin are essential for keeping the skin smooth and firm. As we age our body’s natural production of collagen and elastin slows down, causing the skin to wrinkle and sag. By stimulating natural production of collagen and elastin, Ultherapy allows the skin to regain some of its lost youth by naturally smoothing wrinkles and adding volume.
“Ultherapy is a safe, painless, non-invasive method to restore lost volume and tighten sagging skin,” said Dr. Fabi. “It has been cleared for use on the face and neck for years, and now that it is cleared for use on the decolletage, people who are concerned about signs of age on their chest but who don’t want to undergo a surgical procedure finally have an option for a more comprehensive aging treatment.”
Ultherapy only takes about half an hour to perform, making it a perfect option for people who are too busy to spare a lot of time for cosmetic procedures. There is no downtime involved, and only one session is needed for results. Ultherapy does not merely fill in wrinkles; it penetrates below the surface of the skin in order to stimulate the body to naturally produce more collagen and elastin.
“Ultherapy does not produce instant results, because it works by stimulating our body's natural production of collagen and elastin,” explained Dr. Fabi. “It will take about three months to start seeing results, but these results will be long lasting, youthful, and natural."
Ultherapy for chest rejuvenation is now available at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego.
