Ann Arbor, MI, July 29, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Pramit Malhotra, specializing in plastic surgery in Ann Arbor, recently added Ultherapy® to his list of cosmetic offerings, becoming part of an exclusive group of plastic surgeons in Michigan to offer the procedure. Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure that is FDA-cleared to lift and tighten the neck, chin, and brow. The procedure uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin deep within the skin, allowing tightening of the skin without the recovery period and invasiveness of surgery.
“I am very happy to be a part of the small group of board-certified plastic surgeons offering this procedure in Michigan,” says Dr. Malhotra. “Although I still perform facelifts at my practice, I am excited to be able to provide a great nonsurgical alternative.”
Ultherapy® is specifically designed to treat the eyebrow, neck, and chin areas but has recently been FDA- cleared to improve wrinkles and décolletage lines as well. Unlike lasers, or surgery, Ultherapy® bypasses the surface of the skin, delivering ultrasound energy focused at the optimal temperature and location for collagen regeneration. The energy jumpstarts the natural process of neocollagenesis to produce collagen, using the body’s own collagen process for natural, noticeable results.
The initial effect of Ultherapy® can be seen right away after the first treatment, but results continue to improve over 2-3 months as the collagen produced works to lift and tighten the skin around the treated areas. Although the manufacturer admits that Ultherapy® will not exactly duplicate the results of a facelift, it is a clinically proven and non-invasive alternative for patients who are not ready for a surgical procedure.
The best candidates for the Ultherapy® procedure are patients with mild to moderate skin laxity (where the skin begins to feel and look less firm). Examples of this are a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest.
