Chevy Chase, MD (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
According to the board-certified dermatology team at the Chevy Chase Cosmetic Center, loose, sagging, aging skin, is the number one complaint among older patients. One effective procedure the leading cosmetic dermatologists recommend: Ultherapy, using ultrasound technology to tighten the skin. The non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift is FDA-approved for use on the face, brow, and neck, has been named “Best Skin Tightening Treatment” in New Beauty Magazine's Annual Beauty Choice Awards in the February 2015 publication, for a second consecutive year.
A recent study published in November 2014 by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) evaluated the results of Ultherapy treatments on 48 women, aged 39 to 85, who had undergone the procedure in 2011. More than 80 percent of those studied noted improvement, and 62.5 percent were satisfied — or very satisfied — with the results 90, and 180 days later.
Ultherapy stimulates collagen production by delivering ultrasound energy to the superficial muscular tissue made up of collagen, on the face and neck. “The stimulation at that plane results in a meaningful lift as well as superficial tightening of the skin,” said study author Sabrina Guillen Fabi, M.D., a member of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. “It is the only energy-based treatment that effectively and consistently penetrates to the depth of the superficial muscular plane that classically has been targeted with surgery. It truly is a game-changer,” Fabi said.
Dr. Eric Finzi, Dermasurgeon and Medical Director, Chevy Chase Cosmetic Center says, “The procedure is quick and relatively pain-free; most patients are in and out of our office in a few hours, and back at work the next day. That’s one of the biggest benefits of Ultherapy: no downtime, no scars, no surgery.”
