"The studies have been positive on ultrasound, again because it delivers energy deeply into the skin. It does cause that tissue contraction," added Metairie dermatologist Dr. Patricia Farris.
It's called Ulthera, an ultrasound device that has FDA approval to tighten and lift face and neck skin.

"He does 10 a week and he said that 100 percent of patients saw improvement and that's what I was looking for. Now, some of them saw more than others. Some of them saw wow improvement and some just saw some improvement, but they all saw improvement," he said.
"I started noticing right in this area, loose skin. Just looked tired to me. And he said that this might be a good idea to address that problem," said Collums pointing to the jowl area on her face.
Right after Hurricane Katrina, Paula Collums felt weight loss made her face look saggy. So facial plastic surgeon Dr. Felix Bopp performed a face lift. But now at 62 years old, she's beginning to see a change.
New technology looks to tighten skin without surgery
used. Gel is rubbed on the skin, then the machine shows the technician exactly where to deliver the thermal energy. The first pass goes deep to lift. The second more shallow pass, helps skin texture and lines. There's an instant effect. Then full effect can be seen over a few months as the skin, stimulated by the heat, builds new collagen. That is what's lost mostly from sun and tanning beds. The good news is you only need one treatment. Bopp's wife and business partner, dermatologist Dr. Barbara Bopp tried the Ulthera.
"I certainly think that there is science behind the device. It gives modest improvement and it is an option for the patient wanting to avoid surgery. As long as that patient understands that you can not duplicate the results of a face lift with any of these devices (lasers, radio frequency), I think there's a place for these devises," said Lupo.
There are now 33 different studies going on trying to see if the Ulthera will tighten skin on other parts of the body, such as the arms, knees and abdomen.
"So on the side that we did half, I looked uneven to it, to the point to everyone did notice a change but could not quite pinpoint what that change was. But yes, there was a change," said Christine Thompson, a Bopp Dermatology laser technician.
Two tears ago, New Orleans dermatologist Dr. Mary Lupo evaluated the Ulthera. Her test patients found if very painful without numbing. One third had some bruising afterward.
"It's totally newer than anything we've been doing with the radio Ghd Curler

dermis, epidermis (layers of the skin). But this device penetrates much deeper to the fascia layer which is the same layer I lift when I'm doing a face lift and it creates a tightening effect at that layer," explained Bopp.
So she turned to Bopp again, but not for surgery. This time for the latest technology to hit the market.
She later did the other side with the nerve block. But when the office first tired the Ulthera, she did it without numbing anesthesia and said it was too painful to do the other side that same day.
Here's how it works. The face and bones are marked and measured with a white pencil. Then, just like in the dentist's office, the doctor numbs your face with a topical before the tiny needle injections are Beats Airpods
But Collums says with the nerve block, she Babyliss Pro was fine.
"I'm seeing a little lift and like a change in my skin, a change in the structure of my face, and again it's only been a month and a half, two months and I still have another month to go and I know more re modeling's going to take place," said Barbara S. Bopp.
So far there have been no permanent complications. Some patients had temporary nerve tingling, weakness or numbness. But for Collums, this quick treatment was all the rejuvenation she wanted.
Felix Bopp said he has not seen bruising in this version of the Ulthera. He says what's key is picking the ideal patient. People in their 40s, 50s and 60s are best. Older people who need, but don't want surgery, can benefit. People with a lot of fat under the skin won't see as much of an effect. The machine is color blind, so it won't hurt pigment nor will it keep a man's beard from growing in. Bopp likes what a Seattle colleague is finding.
