Ultrasound Treatment – Ultherapy Richmond

Tag Archives: ULTHERAPY


Ultherapy_stock_3The Ultherapy procedure is a type of ultrasound treatment that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin of the treated area. When you’re beginning to notice the effects of gravity and age on your skin and you’re ready for a change, consider this lift.

As you age, your skin’s collagen protein production rate slows. You can increase the production rate through an ultrasound treatment. Waves of ultrasound energy are directed at the lowest layers of the patient’s skin. As more collagen is produced, the skin becomes more elastic and firm, and drooping skin is tightened.

This non-invasive lift procedure may be perfect for you, but there’s only one way to know for sure: by contacting our office and arranging a consultation! You’ll be able to speak more about the Ultherapy ultrasound treatment with board-certified plastic surgeons Doctors Burton Sundin and Reps Sundin, experienced medical professionals in the Richmond area.

Are you dealing with the facial effects of the aging process? Sagging skin in the eye area makes people appear fatigued and less alert. Wrinkles, lines, and more can add to this effect. To remedy this condition, try ultrasound treatments.

Ultherapy ultrasound treatments get rid of that drooping eyebrow and eyelid skin by lifting the brow non-surgically and gently. The heat of the ultrasound energy waves tightens the tissues, making the area look smooth and beautiful.

Ultrasound treatments can do more than just rejuvenate the brow and eyelids. For more on the healing effects of Ultherapy, contact our office and arrange a consultation. You’ll speak with Doctors Burton Sundin and Reps Sundin, board-certified plastic surgeons with the experience needed to answer all your questions. Call or email today!

NKP-375-250x233Ultherapy is one of the newest and most-advanced techniques for lifting, toning and tightening skin. Though it isn’t an alternative for a complete, traditional facelift, Ultherapy does offer patients an option for a non-invasive, subtler tightening of the brow, neck or under the chin.

Using ultrasound technology to stimulate the structures of the skin, Ultherapy is able to lift and tighten hard-to-treat areas without damaging the surface of the skin. Over the two to three months following the procedure, patients will experience continued improvements. The procedure itself typically only lasts 60 to 90 minutes and has no downtime. Discuss your goals with board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Reps or Burton Sundin to determine if Ultherapy is right for you.

Looking for a way to make the skin on your neck and face look firm, smooth, and youthful? Like Botox, Juvéderm, Thermage, and Fraxel, Ultherapy is a type of skin care treatment used for non-invasive facelifts and necklifts. Also known as Ulthera, this soundwave-based procedure erases wrinkles, leaving your skin looking firm, smooth, and youthful.

The Ultherapy procedure takes anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half. During the Ulthera treatment, soundwaves are concentrates towards areas with loose skin and wrinkles. The heat created by the soundwaves tightens the skin and stimulates collagen production in the tissues. After the procedure, no recovery time is necessary, and you’ll begin to see results very quickly. The collagen keeps building for three months after the treatment, making the results look better and better. Usually, only a single Ultherapy treatment is needed to ease away those wrinkles.

So if you want to bring youth and beauty back to your skin, try Ultherapy treatments. Visit the office of Doctors Burton Sundin and Reps Sundin, two cosmetic surgeons with years of experience helping patients achieve their beauty goals. Contact us today to set up a consultation

The Non-invasive Solution to Lift, Tighten and Tone Skin on the Face and Neck

It’s been featured on national television shows such as

Rachael Ray, The View and The Doctors. It’s been touted by big-name beauty editors from Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Shape

and more…

It’s Ultherapy, a non-surgical face and neck treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose skin — on the brow, on the neck and under the chin — without any downtime. And, it’s offered here in Richmond, Virginia at The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery.




Ultherapy Uses Ultrasound?

That’s right! Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment, to ensure that the energy is delivered precisely to where it will be most effective.

Leveraging this tried-and-true technology, we can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin – the one typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. That means after a 90-minute


treatment, you’ll be able to return to your everyday life without interruptions…and, without hiding behind those “post-treatment” glasses or scarves.



Ultherapy Creates Collagen and Elastin Naturally

Ultherapy is so unique because it refreshes your collagen by jumpstarting a repair process. It relies on the body’s own regenerative process to stimulate the natural creation of new collagen and elastin – yes, new collagen and elastin. This results in an actual lift of skin overtime – and just better-fitting skin.

Many people notice an immediate effect following the treatment, but the ultimate lifting and toning takes place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, stronger collagen. And, as this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can even appear up to 6 months following a procedure!


Ultherapy – an Uplift not a Facelift

Ultherapy is a non-surgical option for people with mild to moderate skin laxity – those who want some lifting for skin that has lost elasticity, but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. It’s also a great option for those who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Ultherapy may cause some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Of course, we offer a number of options to help make your Ultherapy treatment as comfortable as possible. Our patients who’ve had Ultherapy typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come!
