What is Ultherapy?
While immortality may still be out of reach, the science of anti-aging has progressed by leaps and bounds over the past decade. Among the latest miracle techniques for reversing wrinkles, frown lines, folds and sagging skin comes Ultherapy, a safe, non-surgical ultrasound procedure that revitalizes and rejuvenates the appearance in just 30-60 minutes.
How does Ultherapy work?
Unlike a facelift or neck lift, Ultherapy requires no incisions, no anesthesia and no downtime. An ESK technician will apply a smooth wand over your skin, placed directly upon the areas that need improvement. The wand transmits an image to the computer that allows the doctor to strategically target deep skin layers with remarkable precision. Rays of focused heat are then directed at the lower level age-compromised cells, sparing the healthy skin cells on the surface. This heat stimulates the natural production of new collagen through a process known as “neocollagenesis,” which over time results in the beautiful, youthful glow of tighter, firmer facial contours.

Why should clients choose
Certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology, Dr. Kwak’s practice delivers Ultherapy to the highest standard. His focus throughout his training, residencies, fellowships and many years in practice has been exclusively on the face and neck, and as such he has honed his abilities in the field of age-reversal to an art form.
Ultherapy begins with a private consultation with Dr. Kwak in the warmth and comfort of his office. Dr. Kwak will discuss your goals for the procedure, carefully evaluating your medical records, anatomy, prior surgeries, age and lifestyle in order to make the best recommendation possible. He will only move forward once he is confident that all your questions and concerns have been fully answered.
What to expect during Ultherapy
Ultherapy is generally considered painless, although some patients may experience slight tingling sensations as heat from the wand penetrates the skin cells. This is normal, and simply means the ultrasound energy is making contact with the damaged, aging skin cells. The Ultherapy rays can be directed at the entire neck and facial region, or they can be used to address very specific areas such as the forehead, cheeks or jowls. Your doctor will customize the best treatment plan for you during your confidential consultation.
Some patients may experience flushed skin after the treatment, but any redness or tenderness of this nature dissipates in a matter of hours. Because Ultherapy requires no anesthesia and no incisions, there is no downtime. No bandages, creams or pain medications are required either. As a result, patients are able to return to their normal work or school schedule of activities the same day as their procedure.
The regeneration of collagen begins right away following the procedure, however your results will become more visible over the course of several months. Reviewing Dr. Kwak’s gallery of before and after photos will give you a better idea of just how successful this procedure can be in promoting a more youthful, rested and relaxed countenance. Skin appears tighter, more toned and with a significant smoothing effect comparable to a surgical facelift. While a single treatment tends to be all that most New York clients require, upon follow-up the doctor may suggest a second session for continued improvement.
