Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
Dr. Rod. J. Rohrich, Dallas plastic surgeon, professor and chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center, will present the latest clinical information this weekend about new ultrasonic skin tightening treatment options. Dr. Rohrich will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these novel treatments in cosmetic medicine, and will take questions from the audience.
Ultrasonic technologies such as Ultherapy have recently been cleared for use in facial rejuvenation by the FDA. Ultrasonic energy is used to trigger the creation of new collagen in the deep layers of the skin. "This technology represents a completely new category of cosmetic medicine," says Dr. Rohrich.
"While this cannot replace the results of a facelift, it is a great option for those seeking non-invasive facial rejuvenation," explains Dr. Rohrich, who regularly performs facelifts in Dallas.
The event will take place from 11:30am to 12:30pm, Feb. 18 at the Four Seasons Resort and Club in Las Colinas, Irving. The free event is open to the public, but seating is limited. Interested participants can RSVP at 214-490-8835.
