To celebrate the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday this month, Art of Skin MD is offering an unheard of offer on Ultherapy - the ultrasound technology that will tackle the Turkey waddle on your neck...and win! This month only (November), book an Ultherapy for the face and receive the neck for FREE - that is a $2500 value!!!
See my recent TV segment on Fox 5 San Diego in the morning below for information on Ultherapy:
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved procedure that uses microfocused ultrasound energy to tighten the connective tissue of our face and neck to lift sagging skin and re-create a taut jawline. Ultherapy is completed as a single treatment and is FDA-approved for 12 months of duration, although some patients may have lasting results for 18-24 months.
How does Ulthera work? The transducer or handpiece of Ultherapy is placed on the skin's surface where it bypasses the skin and focuses energy on the SMAS of the face - the connective tissue layers that are re-draped and tightened during a facelift. Noninvasively, Ultherapy can heat these tissue layers, causing new collagen growth for weeks after treatment. Collagen stimulation contributes to skin tightening and the subsequent lifting of tissues.
Patients often ask if Ultherapy hurts? Sometimes they have gone online to patient forums, and are concerned about others' experiences. Rest assured, I use a combination of relaxation techniques, an inviting clinic environment, and a series of regional local numbing blocks to make Ulthera treatment simple, easy, and virtually pain-free. The difference between a good and bad Ultherapy experience lies with the physician. A skilled dermatologist and a dermatologic surgeon interested in your comfort can make Ultherapy a breeze.
Ultherapy and Sculptra can provide a powerful combination - a nonsurgical face and neck lift with a liquid facelift. Both improve the other, leading to a more powerful and comprehensive rejuvenation. See the video from UT-TV below:

Our face isn't the only skin we need to take close and careful care for as we spring into summer. Most of us are more cognizant about protecting our facial skin, but we neglect to take care of our necks, chest, and hands.
Over time, exposure to sun and environmental elements can cause telltale aging changes to the chest. UV exposure damages collagen in the second layer of our skin called the dermis. This loss of support results in skin textural changes and vertical wrinkles in the decollete area.
So what can be done to improve the appearance of this aged skin? Sculptra! Completed as a series of treatments, Sculptra injections to the chest promote new collagen growth, strengthening and thickening the soft tissue and skin of the chest area. This increased support and scaffolding lessens the appearance of skin irregularities and lines in the V-shaped area of the chest.
Watch the YouTube video below to see Dr. Palm demonstrate how Sculptra in placed along the decollete area for chest rejuvenation:
Other procedures can be combined with Sculptra treatment for total chest rejuvenation. Laser and light procedures can improve the appearance of the skin by eliminating color changes and further improving skin texture. IPL can eliminate brown spots and broken blood vessels. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) can treat photodamage and precancerous spots called "actinic keratoses." The eCO2 fractionated laser skin resurfacing procedure can smooth and tighten skin. Ultherapy can be used in the chest area to tighten and lift loose skin.
