If your skin isn't as firm as it used to be, the Institute of Plastic Surgery may help to increase your skin's elasticity using ultherapy, a noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment for loose facial, neck, chin, and décolletage skin. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), ultherapy's energy from ultrasound waves can change the elasticity of your skin with a 30 – 90-minute session. After your appointment when the treated skin starts to heal, your body goes into a natural collagen production mode to strengthen the skin. Our team of board-certified plastic surgeons is pleased to provide ultherapy to Colorado Springs, CO men and women. This treatment may be used along with other skin rejuvenation treatments, like an injectable or laser skin resurfacing to leave your skin appearing youthful.
Men and women can both get results from ultherapy treatments. If you have noticed that the skin on your face is becoming more lax with light or medium lines (around the eyes, brow, and mouth), or developing a light jowl droop, you might be an ideal patient for this nonsurgical treatment. If you have severe skin sagging or etched wrinkles and lines, a surgical facelift could be a better option for your needs.

"Blessed that Dr. Dash did my BA - I’m 3 days post op from my BA and couldn’t have asked for a better physician to do my surgery. Dr. Dash and her staff were amazing. I was a little nervous going into my first consult, but everyone made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Dash throughly went over the different kinds of implants, case studies that have been done and answered every question that I had. She is very patient, kind and ful..."- B. / RealSelf / Oct 22, 2018
"Total facial resurfacing - I have had horrible cystic acne from a very young age. I’m 32 and I still break out on occasion. It doesn’t help that I pick at it either, but the scars are awful. I’ve always been self conscious about my face. I decided to go and do something about it when I decided I wanted a breast lift/aug. Some light shows more of the depth of these rolling scar better than others. It has been 24 hours..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 22, 2018
"Breast lift with implants - I have had fairly large breasts since high school. They were great and followed me everywhere. Then I went to college and gain the “freshmen 50” (yes 50, not 15) and they got quite large. Between yo-yo dieting, poor nutrition, and inconsistent exercising, they just look sad and deflated. Now that I’m 32, I have finally figured out how to feed myself and I’m stable enough that I’ve decided t..."- Y. / RealSelf / Sep 16, 2018

You will be invited to lie down in our treatment room where we will prepare the skin being treated, which can include the use of a numbing agent. During the procedure, a handpiece that emits ultrasound energy will be passed across your skin. Based how many areas of skin you're getting treated, your procedure can take around 1 – 2 hours. It's usual for the treated skin to appear slightly red and swollen. You may apply ice packs and take a nonprescription pain reliever to decrease any inflammation and pain. You can put on cosmetics after your appointment and resume your day as usual.
What to Expect
This cosmetic procedure will not give you visible results right away. It will take some time for the treated skin to heal and adjust after the treatment. With the boost of collagen, the skin will tighten in around six or more months.
