Non-surgical ultrasound treatment offered at Long Island plastic surgery practice’s Aesthetic Center is FDA-approved to lift skin on the neck, brow, and underneath the chin

Long Island, NY – Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, PC (LIPSG) announced that Ultherapy – the only non-invasive procedure FDA-approved to lift skin on the neck, on the brow, and under the chin – will now be available at all four of their Aesthetic Center locations: Garden City, Manhasset, Babylon, and Manhattan.

Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure for the face and neck that stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to lift the skin over time. The New York plastic surgeons at LIPSG say the use of FDA-cleared ultrasound technology enables providers, for the first time, to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin – typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

Ultherapy represents a whole new category within aesthetic medicine,” says the Medical Director of Long Island Plastic Surgical Group’s Aesthetic Centers. “It is an ideal cosmetic procedure for those looking for natural yet noticeable results.”

According to the LIPSG surgeons, a treatment can take 30 – 90 minutes. They say patients do not need to take any special measures and there is little to no down time post treatment. Additionally, they highlight that with just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months, as new, stronger collagen and elastin are created. Further improvements can even appear up to six months following a procedure as this collagen-building process continues.

While the results do not duplicate those of surgery, the LIPSG surgeons say Ultherapy’s gradual improvements make it a compelling option for people who have mild to moderate skin laxity, as well as those who want to “stay ahead of the game” and those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
