What’s new in Plastic Surgery for 2013?

January is a time of new beginnings when we turn to a new page and set our course with New Year’s Resolutions. It is also a time when we at Plastic Surgery Associates and Allegro MedSpa look at how we can continue to add joy to our patients? lives.

Often our New Year’s Resolutions include taking good care of ourselves to look as good as we feel. Non-surgical procedures continue to be extremely popular to help improve parts of our bodies that exercise can’t, and we are very excited about these new additions for 2013:

Even better Ulthera: Ulthera has done a nice job of non-surgical tightening of the face and neck using ultrasound waves, and we’re thrilled to announce that those ultrasound waves can now be delivered with greater patient comfort. We are also excited about their new headpiece that can tighten intricate areas like the upper lip and the lower lids.

A dynamite combination: Ulthera and Fraxel can be combined to deliver a terrific nnon-surgical facial rejuvenation. In addition to tissue tightening, this combination also improves wrinkles, texture, and pigment irregularities that result from sun damage and aging.

CoolSculpting more areas! Coolsculpting is a favorite among our patients to freeze fat with no down time, and the company just released new application heads that now allow us to treat not just the back and tummy, but also the thighs, arms, and the mons pubis!

Happy New Year from all of us at Plastic Surgery Associates and Allegro MedSpa! We wish you the very best in reaching whatever your goals are for 2013.

    I’m so glad there are improving nonsurgical options for maintaining and freshening up our appearance. This is wonderful news for those not yet ready to have a facelift. I’ve had a consultation with Danielle for Ulthera and it’s something I look forward to doing hopefully this year!
