PREJUVENATE: Prevent wrinkles before they happen. Protect your skin for life. LEARN MORE
Dr. Margo Weishar is a double board-certified dermatologist who has extensive experience performing non-surgical treatments from the comfort of her Montgomery County practice. Dr. Weishar and her Licensed Esthetician, Sarah Heller, are experts in the use of non-invasive cosmetic techniques, such as Ultherapy. If you’re looking to refresh and renew your appearance, Ultherapy at Springhouse Dermatology may be the perfect solution for you.
Ultherapy is completely non-invasive. The treatment is performed exclusively over the skin and is specially designed to work from the inside out. The handheld ultrasound technology penetrates through the deep subdermal levels of your skin, re-energizing your skin tissues and re-stimulating your skin’s natural production of collagen. This re-stimulation is what produces the tighter look by lifting skin that has become loose due to the aging process and/or sun exposure.
Ultherapy in Philadelphia is primarily intended for use on skin around the neck and face, but is not limited to these regions. Our team has performed successful Ultherapy treatments and produced excellent results for patients wanting to tighten the skin around the:
When performed under the direction of an experienced doctor, Ultherapy has the potential to produce dramatic results. It is, therefore, no surprise that the treatment is sometimes referred to as a non-surgical facelift. Many of our Philadelphia patients choose Ultherapy as an alternative to a surgical facelift. Unlike surgery, Ultherapy involves little to no downtime, no anesthesia, and minimal pain.
Dr. Weishar and Sarah Heller generally recommend Ultherapy over surgery to treat skin sagging for patients who:
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved treatment option that has been successfully tried and tested on hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide. This procedure is a safe alternative to more invasive skin rejuvenation options. However, despite its track record, Ultherapy still has some common side effects. These include:
All of these side effects are temporary and you should be able to return to your daily routine within 24 hours of the procedure. As long as you work with a trained professional, you should not experience any extreme side effects when getting Ultherapy in Philadelphia.
Dr. Weishar and the friendly team at Springhouse Dermatology are excited to be your co-captains on this journey to a tighter, brighter, and fresher you. We always have your best interest in mind and will never recommend a course of action that we do not genuinely believe in. To begin the process, we encourage you to set up a consultation to assess your candidacy for Ultherapy in person and discuss the logistics of your treatment plan. With a location in Springhouse, we are local and easy to reach from Philadelphia and all parts of Montgomery County.
The price of Ultherapy treatment varies according to the clinic you visit as well as the location you live in. Typically to treat the entire face and neck area, Ultherapy costs anywhere between $2,500 to $5,500. For smaller regions, you can expect to pay anywhere between $750 and $1,000.
With Ultherapy, you should experience improvements for up to three months after the treatment is complete. After these three months, the amount of time these results last depends on your body’s ability to continue producing collagen. Once your body’s natural aging process takes over, additional sessions will help your skin maintain its tightness for a prolonged period of time.
Typically, patients only require one Ultherapy treatment. However, this does depend on the laxity of your skin and your body’s response to the treatment. It also depends on your lifestyle. By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, your body will continue to produce collagen for longer.
Patients do experience some discomfort during Ultherapy treatment. This discomfort is a sign that the collagen-building process has started. Moreover, it only lasts a short amount of time. At Springhouse Dermatology, Dr. Weishar has extensive experience in pain management. As a result, she works to offer all of her patients the highest level of comfort during Ultherapy treatment.
