DC area patients who are faced with the unwanted signs of aging on the face are often unhappy with the way they look. They may have tried using cosmetics or over-the-counter facial creams to combat the skin laxity that results in an aged appearance. They may be interested in finding out about alternatives to face lifts which can be invasive and experience. This is when patients begin to learn about skin tightening procedures available at their local dermatology practice known as Ultherapy.
Ultherapy is a treatment that can be used on most any patient to tighten and lift the skin of the face for an improved look. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery and encourages patients to learn about how ultrasound technology can be used for stimulation of collagen and tightening of the facial skin. This FDA-cleared device is a great treatment solution for patients who want to avoid invasive surgical procedures through a plastic surgeon and seek a less invasive option.
Ultherapy has been gaining ground every since it was introduced in the field of dermatology. Dr. Cheryl Burgess has the training and experience to provide these services in her state-of-the-art facility and may suggest Ultherapy for patients who have been unhappy with using fillers or neuromodulators to achieve a more attractive appearance without fine lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy provides longer-lasting results and can address the entire face, while injectables are often used on specific areas instead.
