The Skin Care Institute Now Offers Ultherapy® A Breakthrough Cosmetic Treatment For Tulsa Area Patients
Jeff Alexander, M.D., Board Certified Dermatologist announced today that the first-of-its-kind treatment, known as Ultherapy®, is now available at his office. The Skin Care Institute Medical and Wellness Spa is the first and only Ultherapy provider in the greater Tulsa area. Ultherapy has long-captured the interest of the medical community and top news media across the country because it lifts and tones the skin in a meaningful way without surgery.
“This represents a whole new category within aesthetic medicine,” says Doctor Alexander, “and my patients are excited to finally have a safe and effective solution for tightening the face and neck without cutting or downtime.”
The use of FDA-cleared ultrasound technology enables physicians, for the first time, to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin, addressed in surgery, without disrupting the uppermost layers of skin. There can be some initial contraction but the ultrasound energy also triggers the body’s natural response mechanism, which is to rejuvenate tired collagen and supplement it with fresh, new collagen. This will gradually, over the course of three to six months, strengthen and tone the skin and gently shift it into a more youthful position. While the results do not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy’s gradual improvements make it a compelling option for those who are not quite ready for surgery. Tens of thousands of Ultherapy treatments have been provided worldwide, and Dr. Alexander is pleased to be at the forefront in the U.S. of this clinical advance, cleared by the FDA in September 2009. For more information, please contact Dr. Alexander.
