Non-Surgical Lifting and Tightening – Ulthera

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

Has your brow and jawline migrated south for the winter? Not ready, or willing, to go the surgical route? Ulthera is a non-surgical alternative to going under the knife, and it’s the only device with FDA approval to lift and tighten lax skin.

What is Ultherapy, you may ask. Well… Ultherapy uses ultra-sound technology to lift and tighten tissue- no incisions, sutures or downtime necessary! The procedure, which takes about an hour to complete, addresses the brow and the jawline. Ulthera treatment opens up the eye area, improves the appearance of “jowls,” and contours the jawline. And the best part? You can go out to dinner the same night, as Ulthera has  no downtime!

For the first time ever, “Ultherapy” allows us to direct sound waves deep under the skin to the tissue that would otherwise need to be addressed in surgery. The tissue heats up, resulting in lifted, tighter skin without disrupting the skin’s surface. The Ulthera also promotes the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness.

Positive Link Between Chemical Peels and Skin Cancer

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

San-Diego-Dermatology-and-Laser-SurgeryChemical peels are a great treatment option for certain types pigmentary problems, skin rejuvenation, and overall brightening of the skin.  Now another advantage: a recent study has shown that chemical peels have a postive influence on UV-induced skin cancers, such as basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas.

During a 10 week study researchers exposed the subjects to UV radiation three times a day.  The subjects were then treated with different peeling agents at regular intervals.  Their findings?

“Glycolic acid, salicyclic acid and TCA(trichloracetic acid) had reduced tumor formation by 95% to 100%…  Glycolic acid, salicyclic acid and TCA also delayed the time to tumor development.”

Furthermore, the researchers found that all four types of the chemical peels they tested “reversed the histological changes associated with with chronic UV exposure.”
