The tissue removed will analyzed under a microscope to determine whether there are any malignant cells present.

Ultherapy® – An ultrasound treatment that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin deep within the skin. As we age, the collagen in our skin weakens and elastin starts to break down causing skin to become more lax.

There is no down time and results reveal a lifting and tightening of the skin over 2-3 months. Further improvements can even appear up to 6 months after an Ultherapy® procedure.
