Ulthera is a focused ultrasound skin tightening device which has been used for the last several years, providing great results, to tighten facial skin.
Over that time its use has been extended to providing a non-surgical brow lift and non-surgical neck lift. However, its use is now being extended once again onto areas of the body to provide skin tightening – a very exciting development!
And to share with us the latest research and experience with using Ulthera on the body, this week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, your show host, Edmonton cosmetic dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka welcomes Dr Sabrina Fabi board certified dermatologist from her practise in San Diego, California.
The two doctors talk about the current use of Ulthera approved in the U.S by the FDA, namely the face, brow and neck. Dr Fabi then introduces the 3 body areas that are showing great results with Ulthera skin tightening: the chest décolleté area, the knees and the buttocks. She highlights the latest studies and results and the typical patient for whom these latest uses of Ultherapy work the best. You heard it here first!
