Is Ulthera Safe for Dark Skin Tones?

A frequent question that Dr. Azizzadeh receives from darker skinned patients is whether or not the revolutionary Ulthera treatment is right for them. Dark skinned patients are concerned that traditional laser treatments for skin tightening can have an adverse affect on the appearance of their skin. At the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles, Dr. Azizzadeh and his team want to assure patients with ethnic skin that Ultherapy is not only safe, but extremely effective in tightening and lifting without harming the skin.

What Is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the non-surgical skin tightening treatment of choice for both Dr. Azizzadeh and Nurse Jodi at The CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles.  Unlike traditional laser treatments, Ulthera is a non-surgical procedure that uses ultrasound waves to go beneath the surface of the skin and target the deep layers of tissue. The heat generated from the ultrasound waves works to stimulate natural collagen growth and therefore tighten the loose skin. Ultherapy does not require any surgery and there is no downtime after the procedure is completed!

Who is a Good Candidate for Ulthera Skin Tightening?

Ultherapy in Los Angeles is the right solution for patients who want to tighten and tone their loose, sagging skin without undergoing surgery. Because Ulthera penetrates the skin to the deepest level of tissue, the treatment is ideal for patients of all skin tones. Traditional laser resurfacing treatments and deep chemical peels can cause complications for patients with darker skin because these treatments are more focused on the upper skin layers. Additionally, with non-invasive Ulthera, darker skin patients do not have to worry about scarring or keloids which can be complications caused by surgical facelifts.

What Results Can I Expect from Ulthera?

As our bodies age over time, the skin on the face and neck becomes loose and wrinkled. Ulthera works to tighten and lift the skin to give a more youthful and toned appearance. In 3-6 months after your procedure, you will start to see noticeable changes in the way your skin looks and feels. Because Ultherapy in Los Angeles is non-invasive and stimulates your own collagen growth, the results look completely natural. Dark skinned patients can expect the same results as light skinned patients and Ultherapy does not have the same risks of complication for dark skinned patients when compared to traditional laser resurfacing treatments.
