LONG ISLAND, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2013) - With increasing innovations in aesthetic skin care technology, the doctors of Long Island Plastic Surgical Group say there are now more non-surgical skin rejuvenation options than ever before. At the Aesthetic Center, the group's Long Island skin care facility, patients can take advantage of treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, body hair removal, and chemical peels to augment at-home skin care regimens and keep skin looking young and refreshed. Additionally, physician assistants at the practice perform Ultherapy®, a new treatment that can serve as a non-surgical alternative to facelift and necklift procedures, to stimulate collagen growth in one session with the added benefit of zero post-treatment downtime. "Ultherapy® is the perfect treatment to do all year long. It is one of the only skin tightening procedures that is safe to do if a patient gets sun exposure."
In a recent blog post titled "Ultherapy® - A Skin Tightening Treatment With Zero Downtime," physician assistants at the LIPSG Aesthetic Center explain how the treatment can help correct skin laxity, wrinkles, and fine lines in a relatively quick, non-invasive procedure, typically lasting only about 30-90 minutes. Ultherapy®, sometimes referred to as Ulthera®, involves the use of ultrasound waves to heat underlying skin layers of the face and neck. This heating technique is designed to stimulate collagen growth, focusing on areas of skin that are showing signs of age. LIPSG physician assistants note that, since the patient's natural collagen is growing and replenishing the skin, wrinkles and areas of inelastic skin can ultimately become smoother and tighter, with results that should continue to improve over the next few months.
As an added benefit, the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group highlights that, unlike more aggressive surgical alternatives, Ultherapy® has virtually no recovery period and may allow patients to return to their normal activities the same day as their procedure. "Ulthera® will not affect your summer plans. There is zero downtime [and no] post-treatment restrictions. Once the treatment is done, you can enjoy a weekend in Montauk and nobody will know a thing."
LIPSG physician assistants also note that many of the practice's Ultherapy® patients elect to combine the procedure with a LIPSG Signature Facial and Nectifirm® to complement results.
Using the most advanced techniques and technologies the field has to offer, the plastic surgeons that oversee the Aesthetic Center say skin rejuvenation treatments like Ultherapy® offer patients who may not need surgery a way to achieve a more youthful appearance without the necessity of an extended recovery process.
