What is Ultherapy™?
Ultherapy™ is a new type of nonsurgical procedure that uses medical ultrasound for cosmetic
improvement of the skin. Ultherapy works deep below the surface—without harming the outer
layer of skin—for firming, tightening and lifting. Improvements include a sleeker, more defined
jawline and tighter skin on the neck under the chin. Sagging skin on the cheeks can be
tightened and lifted, which in turn can improve folds from the nose to mouth, folds from the
mouth to jaw, and drooping corners of the mouth. Tightening of skin on the forehead can
reduce the sagging skin on the eyelids and promote a more open, refreshed look in general.
Overall improvements in skin texture and evenness of color — as well as strengthening and
adding more collagen “cushion” — can be additional benefits.
How does it work?
As with other ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an
image onto a screen. This same applicator is then used to deliver low levels of focused heat at
just the right depth below the skin to achieve a positive effect, leaving the surface of your skin
undisturbed.

Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. You will observe
some immediate tightening and lifting that will ultimately result in a natural lift and conditioning of
the skin over time.
How is this procedure different from other non-surgical skin tightening procedures?
Ultherapy is the only skin rejuvenation procedure that uses ultrasound to image and treat the
skin. The ability to utilize an established technology — to both see below the skin and then treat
it with great precision — helps ensure both safety and satisfying results.
How many treatments will I need?
This will be determined by your doctor, but we have had good clinical results based upon just
one or two treatments. In addition, we like to schedule a follow-up visit to take photographs and
track your progress.
What does it feel like?
Comfort levels vary from person to person, but you do not need anesthesia during the
procedure. Many patients describe the sensation as momentary prickling or heat beneath the
skin. This is the ultrasound energy being delivered into the tissue, which is how Ultherapy lifts
and tightens the skin.
What areas of the face and neck are treated?
The Ulthera System is designed to treat the entire face and upper neck, or specific regions of
interest. We can treat the lower face and neck, or just the forehead and temples, or both. Your
practitioner can tailor a treatment plan for you at the time of your consultation.
What kind of results can I expect?
The regenerative process is initiated right away, but the full effect will build gradually over the
course of two to three months or so.

In the FDA clinical trial, nine out of ten patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line.
This resulted in a more open look to the eyes and a more youthful appearance overall. Patients
also reported firmer, tighter, better-fitting skin in other areas of the face and neck as well. A
smoother texture and more even skin color are also possible side benefits.
What can I expect afterwards?
You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures
you need to take. Your skin may appear a bit flushed immediately after the treatment, but any
redness should disappear in a matter of hours. You may also feel mild tenderness under the
treated areas, which is normal. This indicates that the healing process is underway and that
new, healthier collagen is being generated.
How long do the results last?
Of course, your skin will continue its natural aging process, so you may need to schedule an
annual touch-up visit to maintain your results. The Northwestern University study followed
patients up to 10 months, and improvement was still noticeable.
Can anyone have the treatment?
A good candidate is someone with skin that has ‘relaxed’ to the point of sagging and feeling less
firm. A lowered brow line or loose skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of
“maturing” skin. We will evaluate if you are an appropriate candidate at the time of your
consultation.
Is Ultherapy safe?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy, which has been used in medical imaging and therapeutics,
such as sonograms, for over 50 years, and clinical studies have confirmed the safety of this
latest application. As with any medical procedure, there are general safety considerations,
which your physician will review with you.
How much does it cost?
If you’d like to make an appointment for a consultation, we can do an evaluation and give you a
specific idea as to the price then. If you choose to go ahead with treatment, we will subtract the
charge for the consultation from the treatment fees.

CoolSculpting™–The New, Non-invasive Way to Reduce Fat.
Exciting news for men and women dealing with diet- and exercise-resistant fat bulges!

CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ™ is a breakthrough, non-invasive technology that freezes away stubborn fat. CoolSculpting gently targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges. Each CoolSculpting procedure results in an average 20% reduction of fat in the treated area.

Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery, or downtime. Patients often spend the one to two hours of procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.

Results can be seen in as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the best results occurring over the next two to four months.

Call us today to schedule your consultation, to find out if CoolSculpting is right for you!

What will the results be?
CoolSculpting by ZELTIQ™ can reduce the fat layer by 20%. If the patient’s treatment plan calls for a second procedure, an additional 20% reduction can be experienced. Final losses may be more or less, depending on the patient.
What happens during the procedure?
The patient and doctor first select the area(s) to be treated. For instance, if the patient’s goal is to reduce their love handles, the doctor will position the system on the patient’s side. The device then draws the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm tug and pull – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently.
What does it feel like?
As the panels go to work in the first few minutes, the patient feels a sensation of intense cold. This soon dissipates. The patient is seated comfortably or lying down during the one to two hour procedure. Many people spend this time reading, working on their laptop, or simply relaxing.
Can I return to normal activities after the procedure?
Yes. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, so the patient can return to normal activities immediately. Patients may experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary.
When will I see results?
Patients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after their treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But their body will still be flushing fat cells at that time, and will continue doing so for up to four months.
Are the results permanent?
During the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated fat cells are eliminated. As long as the patient maintains his or her weight with their normal diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable.
