Ultherapy in New York

Anyone who is aging is at risk of developing the “turkey neck”, the name so affectionately coined for the sagging of excess skin under the chin and along the neck. Factors that can speed up developing turkey neck are genetics, sun exposure, and smoking.

Using Ulthera, also known as Ultherapy1, as a non-surgical option to perform a neck lift will provide virtually no downtime. Some patients experience some swelling post-treatment. The connective tissue begins to immediately tighten, showing visible results in 30 days and taking up to six months to fully respond to the treatment.

Dr. Rokhsar has been using the patented Ulthera device since 2009 to perform non-invasive brow and facelifts, and due to a recent FDA approval of Ulthera2 to treat the neck, he can treat that tough to tame turkey neck. To learn more about his Ulthera treatment in NYC, contact Dr. Rokhsar’s clinic and book a consultation today.

A Non-Invasive Solution for Lifting and Toning

Dr. Rokhsar was among the first in the NYC/LI area to offer the Ultherapy® procedure3 for lifting and toning loose, lax skin4 – without surgery! We use tried and true ultrasound to strengthen your skin from the inside out, in a completely non-invasive way.

Dr. Rokhsar was among the first physician in the world to offer Ulthera for skin tightening and has been involved in multiple research projects on the subject.

After just one to two treatments, with no downtime, your skin will gradually reflect a more refreshed, uplifting appearance. This is the result of a high degree of control and consistency not previously seen with other tissue-tightening devices. While many areas of the face can be treated, one of the most popular areas includes the brows, which can cause eyes to appear smaller as loose skin descends. Ultherapy lifts the brow, reducing excess skin on the lids, and opens up the eyes to provide a refreshed and younger appearance.

Unlike other non-surgical procedures, Ultherapy is able to treat not only the skin itself but the deep foundation below the skin that is typically addressed in cosmetic surgery. This initiates your body’s collagen-rebuilding process without disturbing the surface of your skin. How? The Ultherapy system’s ultrasound energy (DeepSEE) allows Dr. Rokhsar to see the layers of targeted soft tissue5 and then treat them with unprecedented prescribed precision.

I’m I a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?

As with many non-invasive cosmetic surgery procedures, Ultherapy is a great option for many patients looking for results without a scalpel. The best candidates for Ultherapy usually possess the following characteristics:

  • You have slightly lax skin
  • This skin feels less firm, or more mature than you would like
  • Loose skin is located around the chin or neck, or around the eyes
  • You want a subtle, but noticeable, change in the skin of your face
  • You want the skin around your face to look firmer and more youthful
  • You have realistic expectations about what this procedure can accomplish
  • Your skin is not overly sensitive or especially susceptible to sunburn
  • You are generally healthy enough for this procedure
  • Looking for a non-surgical brow lift option

Dr. Cameron Rokhsar is an experienced cosmetic surgeon whose New York Ultherapy patients are often thrilled with their results. Dr. Rokhsar has been doing Ulthera since 2009, longer than any other physician in the New York area. He has published research articles on the use of Ulthera on skin tightening on the skin of various parts of the body.

The Ultherapy Treatment

Treatment involves gentle heat to the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting tissues. Aside from lifting and tightening, Ultherapy also stimulates new collagen production, which assists in maintaining a youthful appearance. Within an hour, your body’s own healing responses will be signaled to gently and gradually restore skin and underlying tissue.

Best of all, Ultherapy requires no preparation or recuperation! Lifting usually takes place primarily over the first two to three months. Patients can immediately return to normal activities, though the skin may appear flushed or patients can experience swelling, tingling or tenderness which is mild and temporary. Ultherapy has been featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Marie Claire, The Rachel Ray Show, The Doctors, Elle Magazine, The View, More Magazine, Good Morning America Health, and many other news and media outlets.

Ultherapy Recovery and Results

As a non-invasive procedure, Ultherapy is a great way to get results without needing to undergo surgery (and all the recovery time associated with that). Procedures such as facelifts or neck lifts can require weeks before swelling recedes.

However, Ultherapy recovery is relatively speedy. In most cases, patients experience only an hour of slight redness as the extent of any “recovery” needed. Patients can almost always return to normal activities immediately after their procedure. As a premier Ultherapy provider, Dr. Rokhsar offers Ultherapy treatments at his practices in Long Island and New York.

After just one to two treatments, your skin will often shift back into a more youthful position. If you are interested in learning more, please contact us today to schedule an appointment!

Why Choose Dr. Rokhsar for Ulthera in NYC?

Results from Ultherapy sessions appear months later as it takes time for new collagen production. Most patients notice a tightening of the skin, which translates into fewer lines and wrinkles and a more youthful overall look.

Considering Dr. Rokhsar’s patients are able to achieve this look without surgery, the ultrasonic technology of Ultherapy provides great skin-tightening results. Not only does it provide more options for patients who aren’t ready to go under the knife, but Ultherapy’s results are also gradual and often more natural-looking.

How effective is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to heat the tissue below the surface of the skin, stimulating the body’s natural collagen growth. Ultherapy can improve skin laxity and reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin in the brow, neck, jowls, lower face and chin areas. The results from Ultherapy last for approximately 1-3 years.

Dr. Rokhsar is among the first Ulthera providers in the United States since it came out in 2007. Dr Rokhsar was the first physician in the New York area to perform the Ultherpay procedure. New York Cosmetic, Skin & Laser Surgery Center headed by Dr. Cameron Rokhsar in New York and Garden City, was a study site for Ulthera and Ultherpy. Our Centers have published scientific articles in major scientific journals on the Ulthera and Ultherpy procedure.

Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin, lower face, jowls, and brow, as well as improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. It is also effective for lifting the eyebrow and tightening skin around the chin and neck. In a scientific study, Ultherapy was found to be very effective in lifting the skin. Dr. Rokhsar has been performing the Ultherapy procedure since 2008 and has years of experience with it.

How to prepare for Ultherapy?

Here are some tips on how to prepare for Ultherapy:

  • Schedule a consultation: The first step in preparing for Ultherapy is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rokhsar to assess your skin, address your concerns, and determine if you are a good candidate for Ultherapy.
  • Stop blood-thinning medications: If you are taking medications that thin your blood, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or blood thinners, stop taking them a few days before your Ultherapy treatment to reduce the risk of bruising. If you are unsure about which medications to discontinue, speak to Dr. Rokhsar or any member of our medical staff.
  • Avoid harsh skincare products: Three days before your Ultherapy procedure, avoid using topical products containing isotretinoin (e.g. Retin-A®, Renova, etc.), glycolic acid, or salicylic acid, as they can irritate the skin. Also, remove makeup and other skincare products from the target areas before arriving at your appointment.
  • Maintain regular routines: You can maintain your regular eating, drinking, exercise, and work routines before and immediately after the Ultherapy procedure. There is no need for complex preparation for Ultherapy.

How many Ultherapy treatments are needed?

Typically, results from Ultherapy last approximately 1-3 years for patients who are good candidates for the procedure. Patients may wish to repeat the procedure later on. In most cases, one appointment of roughly two hours in length, achieves excellent results. The treatment is safe for all skin types and tones, requiring no downtime. Ultimately, the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for Ultherapy is to consult with Dr. Rokhsar who can evaluate individual needs and recommend a personalized treatment plan.

How painful is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that uses high-intensity ultrasound energy to stimulate the body’s natural collagen growth and improve the appearance of skin sagging, wrinkles, and drooping in various areas like the face, neck, chest, and brow area.

The level of pain experienced during Ultherapy varies from person to person, and it also depends on the treatment area and individual pain tolerance. Dr. Rokhsar administers medications in the office that help manage pain and keep patients relaxed throughout the procedure. We also offer Nitrous Oxide gas, similar to laughing gas, for additional pain control. Some patients may also feel slightly tender for a few weeks, while others may experience temporary redness, swelling, or itchiness immediately after the treatment.

What to avoid after Ultherapy?

After the treatment, there are a few things that you should avoid to maximize the results and reduce any potential side effects.

Firstly, it is recommended to avoid hot showers, saunas, and direct sunlight for the first 24 hours after Ultherapy. Heat can increase swelling and redness, which are common side effects of the treatment. Unprotected sun exposure should also be avoided for about two weeks after the treatment as the sun’s UV rays can accelerate the skin’s aging process, leading to spots and premature wrinkles. It is advisable to limit sun exposure in general and use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater while going out. Reapply it after every two hours if you have to stay longer in UV rays.

It is also important to avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours after the treatment as makeup products can irritate the treated area and cause redness and swelling. Similarly, avoid scratching or vigorously rubbing your skin after the Ultherapy treatment, as the skin is sensitive, and scratching can cause rashes or scars.

Strenuous exercise and hot saunas should be avoided as increased blood flow to the head may increase the risk of moderate swelling and more bruising, but it will not affect the results of the treatment. Also, blood-thinning medications and supplements like aspirin and anti-inflammatories should be avoided before the treatment as they can exacerbate bruising. If you are unsure which medications should be avoided, you make consult with Dr. Rokhsar or any member of his medical staff.
