We are often approached by men and women and asked “what can I do to improve this?” while tugging on their neck and jowls.
Some patients have significantly lax facial and neck skin, which can only be addressed with plastic surgery. But most others would benefit from a non-invasive skin tightening procedure, without the risks or expense of surgery. For those patients, DermaCure of Valencia offers Ultherapy®.

“As the skin matures, collagen fibers that provide internal support become worn. Ultherapy’s ultrasound energy reaches deep below the surface of your skin to initiate your body’s own natural repair process,” states Dr. Craig Ingber, MD, a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and owner of DermaCure of Valencia. “Over time, this results in the creation of new, healthy, strong collagen and a variety of positive skin changes.”
Ultherapy is FDA approved to tighten and lift skin under the chin, the neck, and the brow.
“Treatments take about 1 to 2 hours. Patients are given a light sedative to relax them, and make the procedure more comfortable. For this reason, we do ask that the patient have someone drive them home. Post procedure there is absolutely no down time. Patients may feel some slight tenderness in the treatment area for several weeks after the treatment,” Dr. Ingber explains.
In the early days following treatment, patients commonly report some lifting, and as an added bonus, a smoothing out of fine lines.

Dr. Ingber tells us, “While this immediate ‘plumping effect’ can be temporary, it signals that the beneficial process of new collagen generation has begun. Skin lifting is reported to continue to build over the next 2-3 months. Further improvements can even appear up to 6 months following a procedure.”
