Hazen Plastic Surgery P.A. is proud to present Ultherapy—a new procedure that uses the skin’s ability to rejuvenate its own collagen to firm and lift the face. Ultherapy has been featured on Dr. Oz, The Doctors, and The Today Show. It is non-invasive, has no downtime, and does not damage the surface of the skin.
Areas around the eyes, jaw, and neck are especially prone to sagging skin as a result of gravity and aging. Ulthera is a simple procedure that uses ultrasound waves that deliver heat energy to the cells just below the skin’s surface. The doctor can see the areas they are targeting, allowing for accuracy. The ultrasound technology is guaranteed to be safe, as it has been used in the medical field for over 50 years.
Patients may choose to treat their face's lower or upper halves or the whole face. Ultherapy continues to work 6 months after the treatment is over. Over this period of time, the damaged collagen will regenerate and new collagen will develop, revealing more elastic and rejuvenated skin.
What Ulthera produces is a subtle yet noticeable lift in the skin’s position. When used around the eyes, a face will appear well-rested. For the neck, Ulthera treats sagging skin to improve your profile. In order to enhance Ulthera’s effects, patients may also add facial fillers if they wish. At Hazen Plastic Surgery P.A., we will evaluate you based on your individual needs and facial type.
“‘I encourage my patients to speak with former patients and view before and after pictures and testimonials from my practice,’ Dr. Hazen explained. ‘I do a comprehensive evaluation so I can recommend the best course of treatment to meet a patient’s goals, whether that’s Ultherapy, laser treatments, injectables, fillers, or surgery.’” — US1 Magazine, June 2011
