Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgerywill now be offering Ultherapy treatment services at several of their Southwest Florida offices. Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. The skilled providers at Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery began offering these services in Southwest Florida in early November.
Ultherapy is a new, FDA-cleared procedure that is quickly becoming popular across the nation as a safe and effective way to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on hard-to-treat areas. The procedure uses the energy from ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, causing the body to respond by producing new collagen. This procedure is non-invasive and does not damage or disturb the skin’s surface. Ultherapy will be available at the Downtown Naples, North Naples and Fort Myers locations.
“Riverchase wants to offer our clients the most innovative and up-to-date treatment services for their cosmetic skin care needs. Ultherapy is an effective new treatment that will help our patients look and feel their best,” says Chethana C. Gottam, MD, FAAD, board certified dermatologist at Riverchase Dermatology.
The procedure consists of a 60 to 90 minute in-office visit and does not require anesthetic or sedation. Patients will begin to see results in 2 to 3 months, and some patients have even reported continued improvement for up to 6 months. Though Ultherapy does not produce the same results as cosmetic surgery, it is a safe alternative with no downtime for those who are not ready to pursue surgery.
