Ultherapy
Do you need a lift? Are you looking in to doing something for the loose skin on your neck or jowls but are not ready to go under the knife? Ultherapy might be the treatment for you! Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment that is FDA-cleared to lift the skin on the neck and under the chin and the eyebrow. It is also newly approved to treat the lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, Dr. Mark A. Bishara and his staff along with Ultherapy can give you a more youthful, natural looking you!
How does it work?
Ultherapy uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production. The energy is specifically delivered to the same layer treated during a face lift without cutting or harming the surface of the skin. The ultrasound energy heats the layer between 60-70 degrees centigrade that triggers Neo-collagenesis.
What to expect?
Depending on the area being treated, the treatment may take 60-90 minutes to perform. Your skin will be cleansed and marked appropriately for the area to be treated. As the ultrasound energy is delivered you may feel some mild to moderate discomfort. It is recommended to take some over the counter pain relievers before your treatment and comfort levels vary from patient to patient but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered. You may have some slight redness and swelling that dissipates within a few hours. Some patients may experience  tenderness and bruising that may last a few days.
How many treatments do I need?
Most patients only need one treatment. However, depending on the degree of laxity and collagen-building process, some may benefit from additional treatments. Since the aging process never stops annual touch up treatments can prolong their results.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime with Ultherapy. You are able to resume all your normal activities and skin care regimen at home.
When will I see results?
You may see some initial effects from the treatment right away but generally the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months and up to 6-9 months.

Have you ever considered treatments for loose skin? There are many non-surgical options out there for mild skin laxity. Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, Dr. Mark A. Bishara and his staff stand behind the technology of Near Infrared Skin Tightening.

What is Near Infrared Skin Tightening?

Near Infrared is a wavelength that emits light in the 780-1000nm where the optical window is necessary for direct sub-dermal heating of the connective tissue. The light helps to heat up the water content of your skin which stimulates collagen to contract and tighten. Your body’s natural healing process will start to produce new collagen to firm and tighten the appearance of your skin.
Who is Near Infrared Skin Tightening for?
Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa we believe the best candidate for skin tightening are typically younger patients who are not candidates for surgery. Or, they may be older and experience mild to moderate skin laxity and do not want to undergo surgery. Another reason one might choose Near Infrared Skin Tightening over surgery is cost.
How long does it take?
The treatment can take 20-45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
How many treatments does it take?
Here at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa for best results a series of 6 treatments done every 2-3 weeks is recommended for smoother, tighter skin.
Is there downtime?
There is no downtime after Near Infrared Skin Tightening. You will experience some warmth and redness that will fade within a few hours. Generally you may resume all regular activities after your treatment.
When will I see results?
You may see some immediate results with gradual improvement over a period of 4-8 weeks as new collagen is formed. Results can be maintained with one or two treatments a year.
If you are considering Near Infrared Skin Tightening or are curious if it is right for you, come see us at Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa and let Dr. Mark A. Bishara and his staff recommend the treatment that is best for you and your needs.
