Sad to say it, but none of us is getting any younger. Unfortunately, as we get older, we start to look our age because the skin starts to sag, and wrinkles begin to form. And there is nothing that we can do about that.
Or is there?
Well, we can’t stop getting older, but we can do something about the appearance of being older. You might be a San Mateo resident who feels great, but every time you look in the mirror you get a picture of this old guy or gal who looks almost ready for the care home!
The good news is that there is a new procedure in town, and it is called Ultherapy®.
Ultherapy® uses ultrasound to boost collagen and fill out all those areas of sagging skin and wrinkles. Your San Mateo Ultherapy® options are available at Silicon Valley Aesthetic Dermatology. We are not in San Mateo, but just ten minutes down the road in Foster City.
Now, your San Mateo Ultherapy® options are not going to work overnight, but you can expect some dramatic changes in your skin with lifting and tightening of the face and neck in about three months.
Only One Treatment Is Needed
The way it works is by using the ultrasound to focus on three levels of the dermis at 1.5mm, 3mm, and 4.5mm which has an effect on the collagen. And the good news is that you will only need one treatment and it can continue to produce results a year or more later. The procedure kickstarts the collagen into regrowth, and that is not going to happen overnight. But happen it will.
Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that will lift and tighten the skin on your neck, chin, and brow, and it can also be used to remove the appearance of wrinkles and lines on your decolletage – provided you are female, of course! Of course, because the procedure is non-invasive that means that you will not have any downtime, so it will not interfere with your work hours or whatever else you happen to be doing.
Our Ultherapy® treatment also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which has been used by the medical profession for over 50 years, and what it does is enable our doctor to see the precise layers that are being treated and deliver the ultrasound energy to the most effective points.
If you would like to discuss your San Mateo Ultherapy® options, please make an appointment to see our Dr. Miguel Canales who will be able to answer all your questions.
