Look better in your 50s, Spring 2014 Newsletter

UltherapyOne of the most common concerns for both men and women in their 50s is heaviness or sagging of the lower face including the cheeks, jawline, and neck. While this has been a notoriously difficult to treat concern, at Advanced Dermatology we are always looking for innovative and novel ways to address these tough problems. We are excited to introduce Ultherapy®, a new ultrasound based device that provides a non-invasive neck, face, or brow lift. This technology uses ultrasound to stimulate your own collagen production to produce a natural lifting effect. This one time treatment has patients noticing a sleeker jawline gradually over a few months. One of the most appealing aspects of this treatment is that there is no downtime and patients can return to their regular activities immediately. Additionally, effects can last up to two years. Ultherapy®, is a great option for someone looking to improve the firmness of sagging skin without the risks and complications of a surgical procedure.

Additionally, we also offer ePrime™: The Evolastin™ Procedure to help combat sagging skin of the face and upper neck area. This one time treatment can help lift, tighten, and volumize the face. This is a procedure that uses radiofrequency to heat the skin and stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen. Not only is this a fantastic treatment to tighten the skin, but Evolastin also helps restore the volume lost around the mouth and cheeks which then reduces the appearance of wrinkles and gives a more youthful appearance overall. Like Ultherapy®, ePrime™: The Evolastin™ Procedure stimulates your own collagen production and so the effects are seen gradually overtime.
As we age, the skin loses both volume and elasticity which leads to the sagging appearance of the face and neck. If you find yourself facing these problems and don’t want to go under the knife for a face or neck lift, Ultherapy® and ePrime™: The Evolastin™ Procedure are great noninvasive options.
