Long Beach Cosmetic Dermatologists at Laser Skin Care Center Adds Ultherapy Ultrasound Lift Touted as "The Hottest Option Available" for Nonsurgical Skin Tightening


Ultherapy Lift shows new promise for nonsurgical skin tightening and lifting without the risks, recovery, and costs associated with going under the knife. What makes Ultherapy so unique is the live treatment screen that allows the dermatologist to see the deep tissue layers below the skin to ensure that ultrasound energy is deposited effectively for desired results. The Wall Street Journal calls Ultherapy “the hottest option available” and Laser Skin Care Center is the first and only dermatology practice in Long Beach, California to offer the Ultherapy Lift cosmetic procedure.

Long Beach, California (PRWEB) October 24, 2012

Laser Skin Care Center Dermatology Associates (LSCC) have responded to patients' overwhelming requests for technology that offers non-invasive skin lifting and tightening without surgery. After careful research, the dermatologists have selected Ultherapy for its precise deep heat delivery, safety, results, and FDA clearance for skin lifting.

Ultherapy patients at LSCC have expressed “seeing immediate and sustained results, a pain level of 1-2 out of 10 during treatment, no residual pain at home, and minimal bruising.” Treatment areas for Ultherapy include the face, neck, jawline, brow, and eyes. There has never been a nonsurgical device on the market like Ultherapy Lift which offers such deep heat delivery and visual accuracy to reach the depths similar to plastic surgery. Patients experience a more defined jawline, elevated cheeks, and lifted brows and eyes for an overall youthful appearance.

Ultherapy treatments at LSCC are performed by board certified dermatologists and are not designated out to nurses or physician assistants. LSCC developed a combination oral medication and pain block to make the Ulthera treatment more comfortable and tolerable for patients. The treatment typically takes between 30 to 60 minutes.

“Our dermatologists represent our commitment in providing patients with treatments by outstanding physicians who provide only the highest standard of care and who make our patients' comfort a top priority,” adds Dr. Bryna Kane, founding partner of Laser Skin Care Center.

Patients are aware that Ultherapy results cannot be compared to an actual facelift, but there's a large population who are simply not interested in surgery. Ultherapy Lift is a great alternative for these patients as they want to look great for their age without the time invested in surgical recovery. Half of the people in their late 60s and early 70s say that they feel up to 20 years younger than their chronological age as was reported in a 2009 Pew Research Center survey. As a result of feeling younger, they want to look younger, too.

How does Ultherapy achieve the lift? Ultherapy addresses mild to moderate loose skin using ultrasound energy to recondition and renew the skin from within. Thousands of tiny ultrasound energy deposits are placed at two different levels within the skin - at 4.5mm and then at 3.0 mm. These energy deposits create thermal coagulation points (TCPs) which causes a two-fold reaction of immediate skin tightening and production of collagen in the months ahead. The dual step procedure affects both the dermal layer and the deep SMAS layer (sub-muscular aponeurotic system) that is targeted in surgical facelifts.

Why is the collagen production instigated by Ultherapy so important? Collagen is a key structural support system for the skin. Aging causes the breakdown of collagen and connective tissue in the innermost layer of the skin which then causes facial wrinkles, folds and sagging skin. Ultherapy provides skin tightening and collagen production beneficial for the skin's support network.

Laser Skin Care Center is offering an introductory discount of $100 on an Ultherapy treatment until December 31, 2012.

The Dermatologists at Laser Skin Care Center will be hosting an informative seminar about Ultherapy at the practice on Tuesday, November 13th from 6-8PM.The Dermatologists are members of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. The physicians personally and safely administer all treatments. They pride themselves on thoroughness and professionalism in approaching all clinical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology care for all valued patients.
