The micro-focused ultrasound therapy, known as ultherapy, effectively lifts and tightens skin on the eyebrow and neck and under the chin without adverse effects for patients of all ages, according to a new study.
Sabrina Guillen Fabi, MD, a member of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), conducted a retrospective study on the procedure, with results released at the recent 2014 ASDS Annual Meeting in San Diego.
Fabi and 2013–14 ASDS President Mitchel P. Goldman, MD, evaluated the results of Ultherapy treatments on 48 women, ages 39 to 85, treated in 2011. Assessments of the procedure’s effectiveness included photographs taken before and immediately after treatment and at 90 and 180 days, plus physician and patient scoring of global aesthetic improvement. Physicians also conducted appraisals of the upper, mid- and lower facial areas.
