Stretch Mark Reduction

Stretch Mark Removal

Stretch marks are formed in the dermis which is the middle layer of the skin and form when the dermis tears. These tears are often the results of rapid weight changes but may also be influenced by hormonal changes, pregnancy, and bodybuilding. Anyone can develop stretch marks although they tend to affect more women than men. Stretch marks typically start off a slightly red or purple shade and then fade over time and eventually present as silver or white lines.

Stretch Mark Reduction Techniques:

•IPL

•Yag Laser

•Fractional (Fraxel) CO2 Laser

•Microneedling

Fortunately, there are various techniques that help reduce the appearance of stretch marks on the skin.* At Skintology Cosmedical Aesthetics with 2 convenient locations in New York we offer customized options and advanced lasers for stretch marks.*

Ultherapy

Ultherapy®

Non-Surgical Face Lift

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is one of the first FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that can lift and tighten your neck, chin and brow instantly! Ultherapy uses a safe technician that leaves the skin tight and natural without surgery or downtime. It improves fine lines and wrinkles on the chest and face! As Ultherapy is designed to target the deep layers of the skin tissue, it doesn’t disturb the surface of the skin; leaving no sign of any type of procedure. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy that helps tighten and lifts the skin. This leaves the skin looking naturally and breathtaking.

How does Ultherapy work?

The Ultherapy procedure is able to stimulate collagen production by heating up the surface of the skin using ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer without disrupting the skin’s surface. As the non-surgical Ultherapy procedure is able to avoid injury to the skin, the device delivers the correct amount of energy and temperature to the skin. The energy being released is able to activate a natural grow under the skin which produces clean, new collagen.

What to Expect from Ultherapy?

During your treatment at Skintology, there will be a deep cleansing of your skin where the train aestheticians will be identifying the specific areas that are to be treated. The aesthetician will apply the ultrasound gel against the skin and place the treatment applicator on our skin. To determine the optimal placement of the treatment energy, the aesthetician will use the Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to see beneath the skin. Throughout the procedure, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being released into precise depths of the skin.

The Science behind Ultherapy

Ultherapy is the only FDA non surgical procedure! Ultherapy is a form of mechanical energy that is completely different from other lasers and electrical energy. During the procedure, the ultrasound is micro-focused and is able to go beneath the surface which can cause cellular friction. With science behind Ultherapy, we are able to understand that heat is only generated at a certain point which can leave the surface of the skin unaffected. But when the skin gets in contact of 65C, this causes the skin to immediately produce new collagen. Results can last a year or more.

What makes Skintology unique offering Ultherapy?

At Skintology, our trained aestheticians are able to treatment to tighten the brow by treating the full face and neck! We carefully design treatment plans to fulfill your goals! We use different traducers to treat specific areas. Each traducer has different ultrasound energy that produces new collagen for the area. At Skintology we have specifically designed each traducer for specific areas.

Benefits:

  • No downtime
  • No surgery
  • No Needles
  • Instant results
  • Single 30-90 minute treatment

Frequently Asked Questions

What is unique about Ultherapy at Skintology?

Ultherapy is one of the only non-invasive treatments cleared by the FDA. Also, it is the only cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound imaging that allows aestheticians to see deep layers of tissue during the treatment that can ensure the energy is targeted to where it will be most beneficial.

What is the difference between Ultherapy and Facelift?

Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that leaves no injection to the face. Also, Ultherapy is able to treat deep layers of tissue with no downtime. A facelift has downtime and does not treat deep layers of tissue.

How does Ultherapy differ from laser treatments such as BTL?

The difference between Ultherapy and other laser treatments is that Ultherapy uses sound energy which has unique properties itself. It is allowed to move past the fine layers of the skin which can penetrate towards the deeper layer of the skin. On the other hand, regular lasers rely on light energy which cannot go towards the deeper layer of skins. Laser treatments are not FDA-clear to lift and tighten skin.

How long does Ultherapy procedure take?

The length of the treatment depends on the type of area you would like to be treated. Typically a face and neck procedure takes approximately 60-90minutes, while a chest treatments takes 30 minutes.

Are there any side effects?

Yes, there are side effects. The skin may appear flushed but the redness should disappear within a few hours after your procedure. At Skintology, some patients have experienced slight swelling or tenderness to touch.

Is Ultherapy Safe?

Yes! Ultherapy is FDA-cleared and has been safely used in over half a million treatments world wide! Ultrasound energy has been used for more than 50 years in medical fields all over the world.

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?

Skintology offers complementary consultation! Typically we look at clients that have mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to look and feel less firm. We also look at lowered eyebrowed line, sagging under the chin, fine lines or wrinkles on the chest and loose skin on the neck.

Vitiligo/Scar Camouflage

Vitiligo / Scar Camouflage for Man and Woman

Scars can be depressed, raised, shiny or rough in appearance. Usually, as scars heal they go through several color changes, from reddish to bluish undertones. Using a variety of camouflaging techniques, these scars can be camouflaged to match the natural skin color resulting in less visible scars.* Hypopigmented scars are the easiest to camouflage to near natural skin tone colors, while darker colored scars provide a greater challenge. We offer a free consultation with a trained specialist who will answer all your questions.

Preparation:

Do not apply make up.
Topical anesthetic cream is applied.

The Session:

Needles are disposed of after every session.
Pigment is implanted into the skin; there may be some slight discomfort.*

Post-Session:
