We all need a lift from time to time (isn’t that why we drink wine), but our skin particularly, needs more help than usual as we age. Unfortunately, even if you’re already piling on $1,000 anti-aging ampoules, religiously masking every day, living clean and sleeping well, it’s not enough to soothe the aging monster. It’s not you – it’s the natural process of aging. As we age, the amount of collagen deep in our skin’s support structures decrease and weaken, resulting in the dreaded sagging skin of your face, jawline, neck and chest that sends you running to your skincare brand of choice’s booth.

The only way to firm and tighten said sagging skin though, is to restore the collagen, or if you’re willing to go under the knife, opt for a traditional facelift where as you know, excess skin is basically removed and you’ll spend the next few weeks in recovery. Honestly, who has the luxury of time for that anymore?

Not us, which is why we’re excited about Ultherapy, Cutis Medical Laser Clinic’s well sought-after addition to their aesthetic toolbox that requires no downtime. You already know them for their scientifically proven, evidence-based aesthetics treatments and their signature Cutis Lift, which reverses the signs of ageing through a combination of dermal fillers and PDO threads. Think of Ultherapy as an even more powerful tool against aging.

So what is it, exactly? It’s a non-invasive FDA-cleared and European CE-marked face lift procedure that gently lifts the eyebrow, jaw, under-chin, neck and chest by delivering ultrasound waves at a specific temperature to create new collagen in the dermis and at the skin’s deep support structure. Once only possible through traditional surgery, these sound waves deeply penetrate the skin’s layers, making it possible to target specific tissue layers.

During treatment, you will feel a tiny amount of warm energy being deposited into your skin, which means collagen-building is underway! The process tolerable, as numbing cream is applied to ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible. The treatment is carried out by Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, their Harvard-trained, US Board Certified doctor. As they say, any tool is only as good as the hands that wield it, so rest assured that you’ll be in good hands with Dr. Sylvia, who is known for her attention to detail, patient education and years of medical experience.

You’ll be happy to know that Cutis Medical Laser Clinics uses an upgraded Ultherapy software, which improves the treatment process by using a lower temperature (from 95 degrees to 65 degrees) to increase patient’s comfort without compromising efficiency. The lower temperature actually delivers even more transducer lines, which is critical in delivering the desired results.

“Research has shown that that absolute heat delivered is not as important as the number of lines delivered”, explained Dr. Sylvia, “which is why we educate our patients about how many lines we provide for each area before the treatment”. PS: Cutis also strictly follows the manufacturer’s guidelines for the number of transducer lines used for any particular treatment area.

If you’re ready to turn back the clock, contact Cutis Medical to find out if this procedure is for you via email, phone or by simply filling in this form. Tip: you’ll also want to ask about their package prices for January.
