Our Ultherapy in Thousand Oaks, also known as Ulthera, is a revolutionary advance in the field of dermatology. The FDA-approved,
non-invasive cosmetic procedure can help tighten, tone, and lift your brow and chin and correct fine lines and wrinkles on the neck and face.
Ultherapy treatments are often called a “mini-lift.” It is an outpatient procedure that works by triggering the body’s natural collagen production. After treatment, the results appear week by week, with tighter, firmer skin.
If you are struggling with any of the following skin issues, we urge you to connect with us to discuss the option of Ultherapy treatment:
Ultherapy is one of the most exciting developments in aesthetics, and produces tighter, firmer skin without the need for invasive surgery when performed correctly. If you are seeking skin rejuvenation, trust the outstanding healthcare providers at Calabasas Dermatology Center where every treatment is performed with the utmost care, and under the guidance of a board-certified dermatologist so you can trust results. Dr. Weitzbuch performs arguably the best Ultherapy Thousand Oaks has available.
The procedure involves the use of a specialized ultrasound wand that employs soundwaves to lift and tighten collagen strands, while stimulating the body to produce new collagen. Collagen is the secret to firm, supple skin, but unfortunately, as we age, the skin stops producing the quantity it did in our earlier years. Your skin will be covered with ultrasound gel so the delivery wand will move smoothly over the surface. A gentle zapping sensation occurs. Most patients find the latest generation of Ultherapy to be easy to tolerate, similar to a vibration or a heating sensation applied at fast intervals.
The side effects of the treatment vary patient to patient but generally involve minor swelling and redness that dissipate quickly. It takes time for your skin to regenerate collagen, but as the weeks pass you will see tighter, firmer skin, a more defined jawline, and reduced appearance of an unsightly double chin. Hollows in the cheeks will look plumper, younger, and healthier – it is all about the collagen. Your body does the work, regenerating this vital protein for stronger, rejuvenated skin.
An ultrasound applicator is firmly pressed down on every millimeter of your neck and face. This cutting-edge technology kick starts slacking collagen production within the deep tissues of your body using precisely targeted sonic waves that break the old collagen and eventually stimulate your cells to produce new protein molecules. This mechanism helps revitalize your skin and improve its texture significantly.
The entire process may take about 30 to 90 minutes. Most patients begin to notice a difference after two to three months, but it may take up to six months to enjoy all the benefits of the treatment. Your results will last 12 to 18 months. While most patients only require one treatment, some may need an additional session of Ultherapy for best results.
Ultherapy is a great option for patients who want to avoid undergoing more invasive cosmetic procedures. Ultrasound technology has been used in the field of medicine for over 50 years. Unlike surgical treatments, there is little-to-no recovery time, and patients can get back to their routine almost immediately. It can be used safely and effectively even on the sensitive skin around your eyes, cheeks, and upper neck.
Some patients may experience pain during the treatment, although almost anyone who has had the procedure will tell you that it is tolerable. A pain reliever is offered before applying the sonogram gel on your neck and face to make the treatment even more comfortable.
