Skin Treatments Q & A

Natura Dermatology & Cosmetics

What is Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy involves passing an FDA-cleared device back and forth across your skin. This device delivers ultrasound energy as heat into sagging skin, activating cells within the layers of skin and muscle, which in turn stimulates the production of new collagen in that area, as well as tightening the upper layers of skin. It’s particularly effective for lifting and tightening skin on the face, chin, neck, and décolletage.

Ultherapy addresses the same areas as a surgical facelift without a general anesthetic. While some patients notice results the following day, the best improvements can be seen after 2-3 months, when the new growth of collagen develops. These improvements can last up to a couple of years until the natural aging process once again affects the look of the skin — time for a repeat Ultherapy session.

What is a VI Peel?

VI Aesthetics produce a range of chemical peels specially formulated for all skin types, including ethnic skin.  The VI Peel is a painless and affordable way of addressing areas of dermatological concern such as sun and scarring damage, aging, active acne, pore size, uneven skin tone and wrinkles. While a VI Peel must be administered by a specially trained medical professional, this simple pain-free procedure results in an overall improvement to your skin within seven days.

What is a Hydrafacial?

The HydraFacial™ treatment is aimed at all skin types, even the most sensitive, and is a highly effective multi-step system designed to cleanse, exfoliate and extract.  This rids the skin of impurities and dead cells while simultaneously refreshing it with vital nutrients like antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. The treatment can be customized with specific serums designed to meet your individual skin care needs. This non-invasive, nonsurgical therapy offers instant results with no pain, side effects or downtime.

How do I know which skin treatment is best for me?

As always, consult with a qualified dermatologist like Dr. Richardson before choosing any kind of skin treatment. If you’re in the Fort Lauderdale or wider Broward County area, make an appointment at Natura Dermatology & Cosmetics to discuss your specific needs.
