Ultrasound Therapy has been used by medical professionals since the early 1940s. It is a non-invasive treatment used in cosmetic procedures when lifting and tightening the skin.
What is Ultrasound Therapy?
Ultrasound waves are created by the vibration of tiny crystals found in the head of an ultrasound probe that is placed directly on the skin. The energy reaches underneath the skin at the optional depth for the production of collagen. The gel is applied to the skin to help reduce friction and assists in the transmission of ultrasonic waves.
What are the types of treatments?
There are many types of treatment options out there for patients who want to lift and tighten their skin naturally. At Dr. Barry Lycka MD & Associate we offer two different types:
Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the face.
Skin Bella (Microdermabrasion)
Unlike microdermabrasion where tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer of skin. Skin Bella uses ultrasonic mechanical oscillation that transmits high-vibrations to the skin, allowing for a precise exfoliation. Skin Bella is recommended for treating skin care concerns by exfoliating, hydrating, revitalizing and brightening the skin.
