Sagging Knees and Leg Skin
UltraShape is used to selectively destroy areas of fat excess whereas, VelaShape is used to treat cellulite, improve skin texture - tone as well as decrease areas of fat excess. UltraShape is often combined with VelaShape so that the skin is improved as well as decreasing unwanted fat. There is no downtime associated with these procedures.
Ultrashape for saggy knees
Ulthera is a better option for loose skin on the knee area because it lifts, tightens, and tones loose skin to counteract the effects of time and gravity. Collagen is then rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen.
If there is excess fat around the knees, the new smaller UltraShape transducer can remove the fat. If there is loose skin, Thermage radio frequency can be used alone or after UltraShape to tighten the skin.
UltraShape for Sagging Knees?
UltraShape is designed to destroy fat cells and reduce unwanted fat from the abdomen. It is not suited to tighten skin around the knees or treat the knee area. There are other skin tightening treatments that could treat the sagging skin around your knees. Ask your board-certified dermatologist about the treatment options that are best for you.
Ultrahsape is not a firming treatment. It
is for the treatment of unwanted fat deposits to reduce a fat bulge. For
firming around the knee, our clinic has had very good results with
Thermage, or Ulthera. The treatment we choose will depend on the amount of laxity
as well as volume. With these treatments you only need one treatment and
the results will last 18-24months with minimal to no down time.
