Ultherapy is designed to penetrate the deepest layers of the dermis right to SMAS, which is a muscle layer that can be found directly underneath the skin. Ultherapy delivers heat to this muscle layer, causing it to contract and [...]

New to South Coast: Ultherapy for Skin Tightening

South Coast Plastic Surgery is pleased announce the arrival of Ultherapy – a non-invasive treatment designed to tighten and tone loose skin! As we age, skin begins to lose that elasticity and firmness that define youthful skin.  Collagen and elastin – two essential building blocks to firm skin – begin to break down, resulting in loose and sagging skin.  This effect is especially noticeable in the face, neck, and décolletage, where loose skin can highlight jowls, hide the jawline, and even lead to the development of wrinkles that resemble crepe paper. How Does Ultherapy Help? Ultherapy works by using the power of ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production within the skin.  Unlike laser treatments, which only treat wrinkles and fine lines located on the superficial skin level, Ultherapy penetrates the surface layers to the [...]
