Online PR News – 23-December-2013 –San Francisco, CA - Dr. Sheena Kong says that the Ulthera device is ideal for for non-surgical rejuvenation of the face and neck. The treatment, called “Ultherapy” uses ultrasound to stimulate the body’s own natural healing process to lift and tighten the skin over time.
“Ultherapy is the only treatment that precisely heats tissue at prescribed depths using ultrasound,” says Dr. Kong. “This is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-approved to lift skin on the neck, on the brow and under the chin. Ultherapy is an ideal cosmetic procedure for those looking for natural yet noticeable results,” says Dr. Kong. “The use of FDA-cleared ultrasound technology enables physicians, for the first time, to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin."
“An Ultherapy treatment takes 30 to 120 minutes. Patients are able to return to normal activities right away, and there are no special measures they need to take,” says Dr. Kong.
A single treatment is all it takes.
With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months, as new, stronger collagen and elastin are created by the body. “Additional improvements can even appear up to six months later as the collagen-building process continues,” says Dr. Kong.
While the results do not equal those of cosmetic surgery, Ultherapy’s gradual improvements make it an attractive option for people who have mild to moderate skin laxity as well as those who wish to delay the effects of aging or to prolong results of cosmetic surgery and those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Sheena Kong is experienced with the latest technology in non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. During an initial consultation, Dr. Kong will discuss available options for each person’s age, skin type and cosmetic concern, including options for treatment with Ultherapy and Thermage CPT.
