As the days continue to get longer, we often get questions from our patients about what type of sun protection they should use. Of course, sun damage is stealth -- no laughing matter. You often don’t know you have it until you’re older, and all those days out on the water, the golf course or the beach have taken their toll. Navigating the world of sun protection is getting more confusing than ever, however.

But none impressed me more than Ultherapy, a unique treatment that uses ultrasound technology to target specific layers of the skin, delivering natural-looking results that actually improve over time. Unlike other methods that freeze or zap cells, Ultherapy uses high energy-focused ultrasound to target specific layers within the tissues. This encourages the skin’s natural healing process and stimulates collagen production, in turn lifting and tightening the skin in the neck, brow, cheeks (jowls) or décolletage. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive FDA-approved treatment to tighten the skin, and offers remarkable results with virtually no downtime. Since there is nothing like a first-hand account, I recently asked a patient to describe her Ultherapy experience. “I was told in no uncertain terms [...]
