Dr. Mehmet Oz featured a breakthrough skin lifting and tightening procedure on his show recently, which he said “can help you defy gravity without going under the knife”. The treatment, known as Ultherapy™, was demonstrated live on an audience member on The Dr. Oz Show segment How to Look 10 Years Younger in Less Than 30 Minutes!

With the increasing demand for non-surgical aesthetic procedures, FDA’s recent clearance of an ultrasound device in September 2009 has come as great news to consumers, especially those in the Seattle area, home to one of the first of these Ulthera™ Systems in the nation.

While drawing on the same reliable ultrasound principles that physicians and patients have trusted for decades, the Ulthera System is considered a first-of-its-kind technology because it utilizes ultrasound energy on the face and neck to lift and tighten the skin in a short, 30-minute procedure.

This non-invasive procedure, called Ultherapy™, has been available in Europe, Asia and elsewhere since early 2008. Dr. Victor R. Michalak, Medical Director of Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology of Issaquah, WA is pleased to be among the first physician innovators adopting the technology in the U.S.

“We now have the ability to use ultrasound imaging to SEE the layers of tissue we want to treat below the surface of the skin, and then focus the same ultrasound energy to TREAT just the targeted tissue,” says Dr. Michalak. Because this is accomplished without disrupting the epidermis, or top layer of skin, patients experience no downtime whatsoever. The treatment triggers the body’s own regenerative response, which in turn results in a firming, tightening and actual lifting of skin tissue over time.
