A guide to the non-surgical “facelift” in Jupiter, FL: Skin tightening without the risk, downtime

 For face tightening with non-surgical facelift consult dermatologist Dr. Peter Vitulli of A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery in Jupiter, FL
Those who live by the words “no pain, no gain” obviously haven’t become acquainted with Ultherapy® yet! This non-surgical treatment effectively tightens loose, aging skin without the risks, downtime, and expense associated with invasive procedures such as facelift surgery.

The ideal candidate

Patients with more modest laxity turn to Board-certified dermatologist and osteopath Dr. Peter Vitulli for advanced, non-invasive tightening techniques. Dr. Vitulli at A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery office in Jupiter, Florida, has also helped reset the clock on aging among those patients who are not good candidates for going under the knife. Or who do not wish to undergo the intense healing, recovery, and associated costs of plastic surgery procedures like facelifts.

The “basics”

FDA-cleared Ultherapy® tightens skin in areas such as the forehead, chin, neck, and chest by using a well-established medical imaging technology: ultrasound. When therapeutic ultrasound energy is applied precisely and safely by Dr. Vitulli, the treatment area is heated in a controlled manner.

Ultherapy’s design supports safety; thousands of ultra-short pulses of ultrasonic waves deliver heat to tissues comfortably and predictably. Due to the unique properties of these sound waves, Ultherapy’s effects bypass the surface skin while triggering changes within the deeper layers of the skin. This feature makes for a particularly powerful, precision procedure that leaves the superficial skin untouched. Throughout treatment, Dr. Vitulli monitors how energy and heat are distributed, which provides peace of mind that the health and appearance of your skin is in exceptional hands.

This process stimulates the production of firming collagen. These proteins are made by our bodies naturally; however, the process of collagen production slows down as we get older. Ultherapy® gives collagen production a kickstart. As new collagen is produced over the months following treatment, you will notice increasingly tighter and less saggy skin. Patients appreciate that gradual improvements look natural, as do the full results from treatment. They appear more refreshed and healthier, not like they’ve “had work done.” Treatment is well-tolerated, sometimes compared to a warm massage, and can be completed in around 30 to 90 minutes. Minor side effects such as tingling and flushing are temporary, and most of our patients get back to their regular routines immediately.
