San Francisco Ultherapy with Dr. Miguel Delgado, M.D.

What is Ultherapy?

Our San Francisco Ultherapy and Marin County Ultherapy treatments tighten skin in the neck and face for a younger, more youthful appearance without downtime. Women want to look and feel their very best. In keeping with today's flawless styles, looking older or tired just isn't an option. Many of those same women, however, do not want to undergo more costly and invasive cosmetic procedures like a face lift. Ultherapy can help these women get a tighter, more toned face and a flatter area under the chin.

What Does Ultherapy Do?

Ultherapy is a new and innovative way to tone lax skin that can be on the face, chin and neck region. It uses focused ultrasound waves with an ultrasound image so that Dr. Delgado can focus on the soft tissue layers. By focusing on these layers of tissue, the body's regenerative response to the procedure helps restore the toned, tight look of the skin and tissue.

With these ultrasound waves focused on the soft tissues of the face, chin, and neck, new collagen will grow over time, giving our San Francisco & Marin County Ultherapy patients a more youthful appearance without the invasiveness of a surgical procedure. It is especially designed for those hard-to-treat areas of the face that may be more tricky to lift using traditional methods.

Ultherapy and the FDA

Ultherapy received clearance from the Food and Drug Administration as being an unprecedented non-invasive means to tone and tighten skin. According to a 2009 press release, Dr. Murad Alam, an Associate Professor of Dermatology and Otolaryngology and Surgery, was quoted as saying, "We use imaging to anticipate where the energy will be placed, and then we deliver small amounts of very productive energy to targeted planes of tissue. This precision contributes to both safety and effectiveness, and because this is accomplished without damaging the superficial layers of skin, patients experience no down time."

Clinical Results

Patients undergoing Ultherapy in San Francisco and Marin County can expect to see changes after their very first Ultherapy treatment with Dr. Delgado. Clinical trial evaluation has shown that after the first treatment there can be a noticeable amount of tissue lift over the next three months with the patient experiencing no downtime or major recovery. 86 percent of patients having Ultherapy saw eyebrow lifts with a mean value of 1.9mm in height difference and a height range from 1.5 mm to 6 mm. This gives the entire face a more youthful look, and will seem like you've had a good night's sleep and aren't as "tired" as before.

Benefits of Ultherapy

There are many benefits of having Ultherapy treatments in San Francisco and Marin County to get your facial and neck skin to be smoother and tighter. Some of these great benefits include:

  • Less pain and downtime than a full face lift surgical procedure
  • The entire procedure can be done in under an hour and a half
  • Simple non-surgical way to tone loose skin
  • Patients tolerate the procedure well and have minimal discomfort
  • Patients also can have a customized treatment
  • Less expensive than traditional approaches to lift skin
  • There is no foreign substance that is used
  • There is no risk from going under the knife, as there is no "knife"
  • Short term boosts are more natural in appearance
  • Collagen builds over time, creating a more elastic skin

Effects of Ultherapy

You'll have noticeable changes with your first treatment. Ultherapy will last any where between one and three years. The average time frame is one and a half years. The results are permanent but the treated area will continue to age. Many patient will choose to have additional treatments in the future or to have other area treated. Some patients have even better long-term results, with results seen over six months. The length of time your lift will be visible depends on many factors such as stress, environmental issues, and the care you give to your face and neck.
