ULTHERAPY is a non-surgical procedure for the face and neck that stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to lift the skin over time. The use of FDA cleared ultrasound technology enables physicians to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin – typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
“Ultherapy represents a whole new category within aesthetic medicine,” says Dr. Khan. “It is an ideal cosmetic procedure for those looking for natural yet noticeable results.”
Ultherapy relies on Ultrasound therapy to deliver it’s collagen boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
The treatment typically takes around 90 minutes. Afterward, patients are able to return to normal activities right away.
With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of 2-3 months as new, stronger collagen and elastin are created. Further improvements can even appear up to 6 months following a procedure as this collagen building process continues.
Also known as light based hair removal and laser hair reduction
Laser hair removal is a convenient, noninvasive method for permanently reducing or removing unwanted facial or body hair. It leaves the skin looking smoother and silkier than waxing, electrolysis or razors and is a gentle technique that can treat larger areas effectively with minimal discomfort and with no downtime. Today, laser hair removal is one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed in the United States.
When to Consider Laser Hair Removal
If you have unwanted facial or body hair that makes you feel self-conscious or limits your ability to wear certain clothing
If you have dark hair and light skin
If you are looking for an alternative to waxing, electrolysis, shaving and bleaching
Both large and small areas of the body are effectively treated
May make skin color and complexion more uniform
Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of 3 to 8 sessions
Multiple treatments are usually required to produce satisfactory results
Patients with darker skin may not respond well due to inadequate discrepancy between skin and hair colors
Blonde or gray/white hair is less responsive due to lack of ample pigment in the hair
These are the top three pros and cons to weigh when considering laser hair removal. If you want to focus on what is unique to you, please consult with your aesthetic plastic surgeon.
Are you a good candidate for a laser hair removal?
The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider laser hair removal:
You have unwanted facial or body hair that makes you feel self-conscious
You are looking for an alternative to waxing, electrolysis, shaving and bleaching
You have dark hair and light skin
Darker hairs will absorb more of the laser light and lighter skin allows more transmission of the laser light into the hair follicle. Age, ethnicity, medication, hormone levels and body area affect the length, coarseness and color of body hair, which in turn will influence the results of any cosmetic laser treatment.
Laser hair removal is safe for all parts of the body, including the face, but a protective eye cover is usually used.
Permanently removing or reducing hair on the legs can save time, money and aggravation on shaving and waxing.
Chlorinated water in Dubai has a severe effect on your scalp and can cause hair loss.
