How it works

The ultrasound-based technology delivers precise heat energy to the deeper layers of your skin where new collagen is formed. The heat is recognized by your body as an “injury,” which initiates the wound healing and tissue repair process by making new collagen. Later on, this will tighten the skin and smooth way signs of aging over time for natural-looking results.

You will see the results in 4-6 weeks but it will continue to improve over several months. Although majority of patients only need one treatment, Dr. Lewis and her team may recommend coming in for multiple treatments to help you achieve your ultimate desired results.
