Dr. Marina Buckley isn’t surprised Ultherapy was just named “The Best Nonsurgical Skin Tightener” by New Beauty magazine for its 2016 Newburgh Beauty Choice Awards. She says it’s one of the most popular solutions for loose, wrinkled skin around the brow, face, neck, chin and décolletage at her cosmetic practice because patients love the skin-tightening and skin-lifting results from Ultherapy.
Milford, PA – April 28, 2016
Ultherapy, the noninvasive ultrasound technology cleared by the FDA to lift and tighten skin, was just named “The Best Nonsurgical Skin Tightener” by Newburgh magazine for its 2016 Newburgh Beauty Choice Awards. Dr. Marina Buckley, medical director at the cosmetic surgery practice MilfordMD, in Milford, Penn., says she isn’t surprised at all. It’s a favorite option for skin tightening and lifting among her patients.
According to the magazine’s editorial describing Ultherapy: “If loose skin is a problem and you need a solution, but surgery isn’t an option, this skin-lifting treatment is the way to go.” Dr. Buckley says that mirrors what she’s finding in practice. Ultherapy is the go-to device for people who don’t want or need the surgery, but desire skin tightening and lifting around the brows, neck, under the chin, as well as to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
“Nonsurgical skin tightening is all the rage for on-the-go men and women,” Dr. Buckley says. “Ultherapy is the only device currently that is FDA cleared for both skin tightening and skin lifting. And there’s no downtime with this lunchtime procedure.” Ultherapy uses highly focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to build new collagen to treated areas. It safely stimulates collagen production, harnessing a technology that has been used in medicine for more than five decades. The device also uses traditional ultrasound imaging to allow providers like Dr. Buckley to see exactly where in the tissue’s layers she is delivering treatment.
“It’s important to me and my patients that Ultherapy has been well studied,” Dr. Buckley says. “In fact, Ultherapy has been shown to be safe and effective in studies reflecting more than 350,000 treatments worldwide.” Ultherapy requires no toxins, needles, lasers or surgery. “It’s totally noninvasive,” Dr. Buckley says. “The ultrasound energy triggers the skin to naturally regenerate and tighten. The results look natural, with no scarring.”
While some patients notice their skin is tighter and appears lifted right after Ultherapy treatments, others realize the effects of Ultherapy during the two to six months following treatment, according to Dr. Buckley. “Of course, there are many other options for patients with loose skin. In some cases of more severe skin laxity, surgery is the best answer. And it’s a more long lasting solution,” Dr. Buckley says. “Noninvasive devices like Ultherapy are making waves for patients who don’t want surgery, don’t need dramatic results and are willing to undergo touch-ups if needed.”
Other options for skin tightening range from noninvasive therapies, such as Thermage, which uses radiofrequency to tighten the skin, to surgical brow lift, facelift and neck lift procedures.
Dr. Richard E. Buckley of MilfordMD Cosmetic Dermatology Surgery & Laser Center developed yet another noninvasive option for skin tightening, called DermaTyte. Unlike the other devices which use radiofrequency or ultrasound, DermaTyte uses laser energy to tighten lax skin.
“The results we achieve with DermaTyte rival those with Ultherapy and Thermage, but DermaTyte is less expensive because treatments require no extra parts, or disposable consumables. These add to the cost of any cosmetic procedure,” Dr. Richard Buckley says. “The good news for patients who have a little skin laxity around their necks, chin or décolletage is that there are options; whereas, as early as a decade ago, we didn’t have these alternatives to surgery.”
