It’s Thanksgiving, leave the wattle for the turkey

The seasons have changed and fall has arrived. While the leaves may be falling, we do not have to let our face and necks fall too.

You now have non surgical, skin tightening options to combat the dreaded droop.

The first skin tightening technology to arrive was Thermage, which uses radiofrequency, electrical energy to stimulate your collagen and tighten tissue. While it can work very well in many, the results have often been inconsistent and early versions very uncomfortable. There are several other updated versions of radiofrequency skin tightening available now (symphony, lux deep IR)  each with slight variations to try to improve consistency and reduce discomfort.

Next came Titan, which uses ultraviolet light. This also gave  inconsistent results.

Refirme, combined the 2 energies and seemed to offer  more consistency with no down time, but it became clear that radiofrequency  has its limitations. It does not heat the collagen layers to the optimal temperature to cause lift without significant discomfort.

Now there is a more effective, consistent, no down time treatment, FDA approved for actually lifting your tissue, Ulthera. This uses ultrasound which can penetrate more precisely, deeply, and better heats the collagen layers to create that lift.




 so, leave the wattle for the turkey…






Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
