Ultrasound Therapy Treatment
At Elite Medical Skin and Laser Center, we help men and women achieve professional,
effective and affordable results through multiple
skin rejuvenation treatments and techniques, including ultrasound therapy.
What is Ultrasound Therapy?
Using innovative sound wave technology, ultrasound therapy penetrates deep
below the skin and works throughout treated areas to:
- Promote cellular growth and repair
- Tone underlying muscles
- Increase blood circulation, which can improve the skin’s color
- Encourage lymphatic drainage
- Treat puffiness and swelling
Ultrasound therapy will also gently exfoliate the skin, combating the onset
of blemishes and increasing the skin’s ability to absorb product.
After treatment, improvements in skin color, firmness, and softness are
typically noted. Ultrasound therapy can effectively treat several cosmetic
- The appearance of congested, puffy eyes
- Large pores
- Skin texture and tone
- Acne and blemishes
- Dark under-eye circles
- The appearance of cellulite and fat deposits
Ultrasound therapy has also been proven to have anti-aging benefits by
temporarily improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the upper
torso. Depending on age, skin condition and skin type, multiple sessions
may be required in order to achieve optimum results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Ultrasound Therapy?
It will be determined during your visit whether you are a good candidate
for this treatment, but typically those who have mild to moderate skin
laxity in the neck, chin and chest area and have realistic expectations
for ultrasound therapy are approved.
Are There Any Side Effects?
After treatment the skin may appear slightly red or flushed, which should
disappear after a few hours. Some patients also reported minor swelling,
tingling and tenderness to the touch, which should also subside within
a few hours or days. During your initial consultation, the medical staff
will inform you of all possible risks and side effects of ultrasound therapy
as well as how to best maintain your results.
How Long Will My Results Last?
As it may take time for your body to naturally generate collagen, the results
of your ultrasound therapy may not be fully visible for 2-3 months. Some
individuals may see results more quickly than others. How long your results
last also can depend on the individual’s natural aging process.
There are patients who need only one treatment in order to correct their
affected areas, but receiving regular ultrasound therapy may be suggested
in order to effectively manage cosmetic skin concerns.
