When your skin isn't as tight as you'd like, Allegro MedSpa of Novato may help to increase your skin's elasticity using Ultherapy, a noninvasive treatment for loose facial and neck skin. With approval from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Ultherapy's energy from ultrasound waves can improve the firmness of your skin in a short treatment. After your session and when the treated skin starts to heal, your body produces more collagen to strengthen the skin. Plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas are pleased to provide Ultherapy to Novato, CA women and men. This treatment may be performed along with other nonsurgical skin procedures, like an injectable or laser skin resurfacing, to leave your skin appearing youthful.
"Ultherapy - Martha was extremely thoughtful and understanding during my treatment. My previous treatment was difficult and I was unable to finish the procedure. I called after my first treatment and requested Martha to finish my treatment. She took the time to listen to my concerns regarding the previous treatment. The procedure was a completely different experience with Martha. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know who is considering getting Ultherapy."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Feb 18, 2019
Women and men can both get results from treatments with Ultherapy. If you are noticing that the skin on your face is becoming looser with light or medium lines and wrinkles (near the eyes, brow, and mouth), or developing a light jowl droop, you might be an ideal patient for Ultherapy. If you have a more severe skin sagging or etched wrinkles and lines, facelift surgery could be a better choice for your needs.
After you get to our office, you will be invited to relax in our treatment room where a team member will prepare the skin, which can include the use of a numbing cream. For the treatment, a handpiece that focuses energy from ultrasound waves will be passed across your skin. Based on the number of areas that are getting treated, your procedure can take about 1 – 2 hours. It's usual for the treated skin to be mildly red and irritated. You may apply cold packs and take a nonprescription pain reliever to treat any inflammation and pain. You can put on cosmetics after your treatment and continue your normal day.
What to Expect
Ultherapy won't give you visible results right away. You will need time for the treated skin to adjust and heal after each Ultherapy treatment. With the increase of collagen, your skin will firm in around six or more months.
