While many non-invasive surgical procedures catch on quickly and fade just as soon, Ultherapy, a skin tightening treatment that gained traction in 2010, only seems to be growing in popularity among doctors and patients.
The treatment, which has garnered praise in print publications like The New York Times and on popular television shows like The View and The Doctors, utilizes ultrasound energy to gradually lift the skin on the brow. Rather than only working on the outer layers of skin, Ultherapy penetrates to the deeper layers, heating them to stimulate collagen production, resulting in a firmer, more toned appearance. As an added benefit, Ultherapy treatments require no downtime and are virtually painless. Though the FDA has only approved Ultherapy as an alternative to a brow lift, other cosmetic treatments are being evaluated.
We encourage you to learn more about Ultherapy in Grand Rapids, a groundbreaking non-surgical brow lifting treatment, with Grand Rapids plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Ringler. Dr. Ringler recently hosted a panel on Advanced Techniques in Ultherapy as Chairman of the Virgin Islands Workshop in Plastic Surgery, held in St. John, USVI in January.
