Am I a Candidate for Ulthera®?
As noted in our last blog post – “The Long-Lasting Results of Ulthera®” – the skin tightening effects of Ulthera® can be apparent for a long period of time, with some patients maintaining their rejuvenated appearance for two or more years. The non-surgical treatment can be a great option for people wanting to rejuvenate their skin without undergoing a major procedure that would require a long recovery period. Dr. Deborah Atkin explains that while not everyone is an ideal candidate for Ulthera®, many people can experience significant improvement in their facial aesthetics following the procedure.
Ulthera® is most popular in patients over 40 with mild to moderate wrinkles; however, it works on any age to stimulate collagen and tighten the skin. Those interested in natural, gradual improvement without the need for downtime are especially pleased to have this treatment option. Dr. Atkin most often treats skin laxity of the face, jowls, neck, and chest, but patients of Dermatology & Laser of Del Mar can opt for treatment in any area they would like to rejuvenate.
