"This no-downtime lifting and tightening procedure, Ultherapy, represents a whole new category within aesthetic medicine," says Dr. Means.
ANCHORAGE, AK, September 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Norman D. Means, MD, announced today that Ultherapy-- the only non-invasive procedure FDA-approved to lift skin on the neck, on the brow and under the chin-- is now available at his medical aesthetic practice, NOVA Aesthetic Medicine & Laser Center.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure for the face and neck that uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the body's own natural healing process to lift the skin over time. The use of this FDA-cleared procedure enables physicians, for the first time, to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin - typically addressed in cosmetic surgery - without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. No surgery, no needles, no downtime lift.
"This no-downtime lifting and tightening procedure, Ultherapy, represents a whole new category within aesthetic medicine," says Dr. Means. "It is an ideal cosmetic procedure for those looking for natural yet noticeable lifting and tightening, and is a perfect complement to our quality aesthetic services. Patients are finally able to have the most renown anti-aging procedure done right here in Anchorage with no downtime."
The Ultherapy lift treatment typically takes around 60-minutes. Afterward, patients are able to return to normal activities right away, and there are no special measures they need to take.
With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months, as new, stronger collagen and elastin are created. Further improvements can even appear up to six months following a procedure as this collagen-building process continues.
While the results do not duplicate those of surgery, Ultherapy's gradual improvements make it a compelling option for people who have mild to moderate skin laxity as well as those who
want to "stay ahead of the game" and those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic
surgery. Patients gravitate toward the treatment due to the "no-downtime," and non-surgical benefits.
More than 250,000 Ultherapy treatments have been performed worldwide, and Dr. Means is pleased to be at the forefront in the U.S. of this clinical advance, and the only destination offering it in Alaska.
Dr. Means' Ultherapy device will be featured at the Alaska Women's Show September 27th - 29th at Sullivan Arena. Event attendees can see a live demonstration of the technology, learn about this FDA-approved, non-surgical skin lifting treatment and will be eligible to receive substantial savings off Ultherapy.
