Ultherapy is an ultrasound guided treatment that is used to treat mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkles around the jowls, under the chin, around the eyes, crow’s feet and above the forehead for a brow lift. Ulthreapy works by administering ultrasound energy to specific depths of the skin with precise ultrasound guidance, which causes tissue tightening and collagen production. The Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar also works at the specific depths that Ultheapy’s energy is administered for an even better result.
The Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar can precondition and pretreat your skin to clear old damaged pieces of collagen and elastin to prepare the skin to create healthier and thicker layers of collagen and elastin. At the different depths Ultherapy treats, Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar can help lift, tighten and smooth the skin for a better result. The Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar also helps decrease swelling and redness more superficially post procedure.
Casas Aesthetic Plastic Surgery now recommends using Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar two weeks before and after the Ultherapy to better improve the results of your treatment. You use this product by applying it each morning and evening to areas where the Ultherapy will be performed. In the morning, it is recommended that you use this product prior to sunscreen application. Call (847) 657-6884 to book your appointment to build your Ultherapy Skin Tightening treatment plan!
