Tighten Lax Skin on the Face and neck in the Philadelphia Area
Over time, the tight and firm skin of a person's youth will begin to loosen and sag on the face, neck, and upper chest. In addition to these contour changes, the quality of the skin itself will change, developing fine lines and wrinkles on the dÃ©colletage, as well as next to and under the eyes. With FDA-approved Ultherapy®, the Philadelphia and Villanova-based team of nurse clinicians at Cross Medical Group can use safe, time-tested, focused ultrasound energy to contract existing collagen and stimulate new collagen, which provides the skin's deep structural support layers. Because Ultherapy® treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive, the surface of the skin remains untouched, while deeper tissues tighten and firm up. The ultrasound energy also stimulates cells to produce new collagen, which further improves skin quality and tightness.

See for yourself the patient transformations that can be achieved by Dr. Cross and his team.
An Ultherapy® session takes 30 to 60 minutes, with no downtime needed afterward. Patients are often able to leave the office and interact socially right away without any evidence of having had anything done. The face and neck gradually improve in appearance over three to six months. The smoother, tighter results tend to last two to three years. New sessions at that time can maintain the cosmetic improvements. Patients interested in a longer-lasting, more dramatic improvement can discuss a facelift with Dr. Kevin Cross.
