The Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington Announces Use of Ultherapy®

North Bethesda, MD – The surgeons of the Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington announce that they will offer the Ulthera non-surgical skin tightening technique, Ultherapy®. This new, non-invasive facial procedure uses ultrasound technology to “lift, tone, and tighten skin.”

Ultherapy is a new alternative to facelift surgery for those not yet ready to go under the knife. The procedure is completed using an FDA-cleared ultrasound device which targets the deep layers of skin without irritating surface skin. The device pulsates ultrasound energy to stimulate natural collagen production in the deep layers of your skin, which helps to improve skin elasticity to achieve a more youthful look.

The procedure itself takes 30-60 minutes with no downtime. You may see results right away, and your skin will continue to improve for 2-3 months as natural collagen production increases. Some patients even saw continued results for up to 6 months!

The surgeons of the Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington consistently provide outstanding patient care. Washingtonian Magazine recently recognized all the surgeons of the practice, Dr. Douglas L. Forman, Dr. Roger Friedman and Dr. Kathy Huang, as 2012 Top Doctors.Their expertise extends to all areas of aesthetic surgery, including procedures on the face, breasts and body.

The surgeons are all certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and are all members of the American Society of Plastic Surgery. Their office is equipped with an AAAHC accredited state-of-the-art surgical suite to provide the best care possible and ensure patient privacy. They work to make all patients comfortable throughout the process to assess and alleviate concerns while providing all the necessary information and options to make an educated decision.
