RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif., Aug. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A single surgical procedure like a mini facelift or eyelid surgery can deliver results in one fell swoop, but for the majority of cosmetic procedures, it's best to double down.
"One treatment will always make a difference," said Dr. Timothy Jochen, a board certified dermatologist and medical director of Contour Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Rancho Mirage, California, "but for the best and most dramatic results – the kind patients want – cosmetic procedures typically require a series of sessions and a combination approach."
Dr. Jochen incorporated Ultherapy ultrasound treatments into his practice a few years ago alongside an upgrade to the more powerful VelaShape III laser. Contour Dermatology practitioners report excellent results when Ultherapy and VelaShape are combined. In fact, the practice has coined the term "UltheraShape" to promote this dynamic duo.
Uplifted by Ultherapy – Ultherapy is a deep ultrasound treatment that addresses the structural layers of the skin and provides both lifting and skin tightening on the brow, face, lower face, neck and chest. This non-surgical cosmetic procedure requires no downtime with just some brief swelling.
Vivaciously VelaShape – VelaShape does its magic by utilizing radiofrequency - mechanical suction and heat to smooth and tighten skin. Performed on the lower face and neck, it's also great for reducing cellulite and inches around the abdomen and thighs. The non-invasive UltheraShape combo focuses on the face/neck area with no downtime necessary. Dr. Jochen is a personal fan of VelaShape III and regularly enjoys treatments on his neck for rejuvenating maintenance.
Opting for combination procedures results in cost savings when they are purchased together. The UltheraShape package includes one Ultherapy treatment for the full face and neck plus six VelaShape III treatments for two areas – lower face and full neck. Protocol dictates that VelaShape treatments begin weekly, two weeks after the Ultherapy treatment.
Contoured Chin with CoolShape Mini - CoolShape is another exciting non-surgical combination Contour Dermatology offers. The CoolSculpting CoolMini applicator freezes under-chin fat and is followed by the VelaShape III laser to further smooth and tighten the skin. This package includes two CoolMini treatments spaced two months apart and six VelaShape III treatments for the chin area beginning weekly after month one.
