Once upon a time, having tighter skin meant plastic surgery for mature patients. Your only alternatives were facelift-type procedures to draw up and remove loose skin. While that is still a viable option in some cases, modern dermatology now offers skin firming solutions that are non-surgical and non-invasive; with minimal discomfort and little or no social downtime.
Personalized Skin Care
After a patient consultation to understand your areas of concern, and a thorough analysis of your skin type, we’ll recommend an individualized program to give your face youthful lift without the need for general anesthesia, cutting, stitches, or several weeks of hibernation while you heal.
We’ll start with skin care products that are well suited to your complexion to avoid the possibility of aggravating oily, sensitive, or acne-prone skin. Possibly, all you need for a more youthful look is the right regimen to firm and tone. If a bit more attention is in order to get you looking your best, we have several options such as Pellevé and Ultherapy.
Ultherapy Skin Tightening & Lifting
Ultherapy™ uses focused ultrasound technology to visualize and to treat the deep structures that support the skin. It is this ability to visualize and then target specific areas to be treated that sets Ultherapy apart. The visible tightening and lifting that develop over the 3 to 6 months after treatment are due to the effects of the ultrasound energy on the superficial muscular layer along with an increase in collagen production in the deep layers of skin.
Pellevé Skin Tightening
Pellevé is another great face refresher. This comfortable process (which feels something like a warm facial massage) sends gradual radiofrequency to deep skin layers. This allows heat to build at the point where the skin meets the underlying layer of fat, to stimulate collagen production. Keep in mind that collagen provides natural structure for your skin to maintain thickness and resist sagging. Treatments are typically done once a month for a total of three to four sessions, and maintenance usually involves one session every six months.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
Does having firmer facial contour, without surgery, sound like a fairytale? Both Ultherapy and Pellevé provide enhancement that is gradual and natural looking. They can be used alone or in combination with resurfacing procedures to remove age spots, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve exterior skin tone and texture. They are an excellent complement to Sculptra Aesthetic, which restores facial volume lost due to aging. Dr. Vivian Bucay’s training, technology, and artistic skill make it a dream come true.
