Apart from devoting his time to his cosmetic surgery practice as well as several innovative non-invasive procedures at his medical spa, Dr. Seify also currently serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor at the UCLA School of Medicine as well as a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of California at Irvine (UCI medical Center). Patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and other areas may consult him for the latest treatments, including Ultherapy for facial rejuvenation.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA approved state of the art treatment to enhance facial profile and promote skin tightening in a non-invasive manner. Many patients today seek non-invasive and minimally invasive solutions to achieve facial rejuvenation. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Seify recommends treatments such as Ultherapy for patients who need facial rejuvenation but are unwilling to opt for facelift surgery.
Ultherapy is an ultrasound based treatment that has proved to be very effective in tightening of loose skin around the face and neck. It also helps rejuvenate skin along the eyebrows and chin. However, patients should understand that Ultherapy is not a substitute for facelift cosmetic surgery. The treatment avoids all the risks that are typically associated with a surgically procedure, and involves no recovery period. Results with a single treatment can last for several years.
How does it Work?
Ulthera is a unique technology that makes use of ultrasound energy to stimulate the natural response of body’s own collagen to lift and tighten facial skin and firm up the underlying soft tissue. The technology also involves the use of acoustic imaging that helps a cosmetic surgeon or a certified Ulthera expert to view the soft tissue layers underneath the skin prior to treatment.
This helps ensure accurate and uniform application of ultrasound energy. This added advantage is not available with other non-surgical techniques to stimulate the skin. The outcomes with Ulthera for facial rejuvenation may not be very dramatic like in the case of surgical facelift, but it is ideal for patients looking for subtle and more natural looking results and wish to achieve facial skin tightening and lifting without surgery.
Benefits for Facial Rejuvenation
Ulthera based face lifting and rejuvenation allows focused ultrasound energy to penetrate into the deep foundation beneath the skin for more effective and longer lasting results like surgery. Facial skin tightening is achieved without making any cuts, which offers the benefits of no scars and no disruption of the surface of skin. The top layers of the skin are bypassed and the precise amounts of energy are delivered into the targeted depths to lift the soft tissue. The treatment improves the quality of facial skin from the inside out for more natural looking outcomes.
