Skin tightening has become more achievable over recent years with the introduction of more effective devices. Ulthera is a device which uses focused ultrasound to tighten skin and is the only device to achieve FDA approval for skin tightening. It was originally designed for the face but is now used on the neck and décolletage (chest) area too. And we have all heard about Liposuction… but what about Thermo-Lipo? It’s a best kept secret where tumescent liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat and contour the body, followed by Thermage which uses focused Radio Frequency energy to provide skin tightening. This week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, your host, Edmonton cosmetic dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka welcomes once again board certified dermatologist Dr Eugene Nowak from his award winning practice in Chula Vista, California. The two doctors talk in-depth about skin tightening and facial rejuvenation with Ulthera, and the results that can be achieved. They also discuss the Thermo-Lipo procedure, how it works, and who is, and who is not, a great candidate for it.
