What is Ultherapy?
If your skin isn't as toned as you'd like, Dr. Susan Seman can improve your skin's laxity with Ultherapy, a nonsurgical solution for loose facial, neck, and décolletage skin. Ultherapy's ultrasound energy can enhance the elasticity of your skin after just one short treatment session. As your skin starts to heal, your body goes into a natural collagen production mode to strengthen the skin. Board-certified surgeon Dr. Susan Seman is proud to offer Ultherapy to West Bloomfield Township, MI men and women. This procedure can be used in combination with other nonsurgical skin procedures, like an injectable or laser skin resurfacing, to leave the skin appearing youthful.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Ultherapy?
Both women and men can both benefit from Ultherapy treatments. If you have noticed that the skin on your face is becoming looser with light or medium lines and wrinkles (in the areas around the eyes, brow, and mouth) or have noticed a light jowl droop, you might be a good prospect for Ultherapy. If you have severe skin sagging or etched lines and wrinkles, a surgical facelift may be a better procedure for your needs. Additionally, while Ultherapy treatment performed at Dr. Seman's West Bloomfield Township, MI, office does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy is an attractive alternative for individuals who are not ready for surgery and for younger men and women who may have early hereditary skin laxity around the jawline and neck.
Ultherapy TREATMENT Technique
Once you arrive for your appointment, you will be asked to get comfortable in our treatment room where we will prepare your skin. During the session, a handpiece that emits energy from ultrasound waves will glide over your skin. Depending on how many areas you're having treated, your sessions may last about 30 – 90 minutes. It's typical for your skin to appear somewhat pink and inflamed. You can apply cold compresses and take over-the-counter pain medication to reduce inflammation and pain. You may put on makeup after your appointment and resume your day as usual.
Is ultherapy safe?
The energy from ultrasound waves has been safely used in cosmetic treatments for years. But as with any procedure, there are certain risks associated with ultherapy. Mild redness and swelling are normal but temporary. Dr. Seman is proud to offer top-of-the-line tools and technologies to minimize these side effects and achieve successful results.
Is ultherapy permanent?
Ultherapy treatment is long-lasting but doesn't necessarily stop the aging process. You may again discover loose skin after a few years, depending on how well you take care of your skin and how much time you spend in the sun. Our staff in West Bloomfield Township, MI, can let you know when touch-up appointments are necessary.
What about downtime?
Expect to take a short amount of time off from work after your procedure. To maintain safety and accelerate healing, we advise patients not to engage in strenuous activities or heavy exercise. Many of our patients return to work or other daily activities later in the day.
Age Gracefully with Ultherapy
Treat yourself to Ultherapy treatments at our office so your face, chest, chin, and neck can look firmer without a surgical lift. Our Ultherapy technique serves to tighten your skin with no downtime. We would love to discuss Ultherapy with you during your initial consultation with board-certified surgeon Dr. Susan Seman in our West Bloomfield Township, MI office.
