Ultherapy Specialist in the San Francisco Bay Area

At PotozkinMD Skin Care and Laser Center, our board-certified dermatologists and team are experts in skin rejuvenation treatments including Ultherapy which stimulates collagen and tightens skin.

What is Ultherapy?

As we age, it’s common for collagen to break down and for our skin to lose its strength and elasticity. Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that can lift and tone lax skin.

Through time-tested ultrasound technology, Ultherapy helps produce new collagen to strengthen your skin from the inside out. In as little as one treatment, your skin will start to gradually have a tighter, more rejuvenated appearance.

During the treatment, Ultherapy works by gently heating tissue to tighten and lift the loose skin. Ultherapy works best for loose skin on the face, neck, and under the chin.

Ultherapy is an alternative to invasive and expensive surgery that aims to lift and tighten skin. There is no cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin with Ultherapy and no downtime associated with these treatments. 

It’s the only non-surgical option on the market that can target and strengthen the deep layers of tissue that doctors usually address during surgery. Ultherapy is ultimately successful because it not only treats the skin, but the underlying tissues too.

The treatments continue working for you even after the procedure is completed. Your skin will respond to the heat energy by stimulating new collagen that will continue to gradually tighten and firm naturally over time.

Ultherapy works best for lifting the following areas:

  • Neck
  • Brow 
  • Chin
  • Mouth 
  • Improves lines and wrinkles on the chest

Our professionals are able to see the layers of tissue they are treating during Ultherapy, which ensures treatments are going to the most beneficial spots for you specifically.

What are some expectations with Ultherapy?

Patients are able to return to normal daily activities immediately. Most people will experience a few hours of flushed or red skin.

A key difference between Ultherapy and other treatments like lasers or surgery, is that Ultherapy reaches deep below the skin’s surface to trigger the natural collagen growth. It’s able to target the exact areas intended for treatment because it uses focused ultrasound imaging. 

The first 2-3 months after treatment, noticeable results will start to appear as the new collagen begins to lift the area you had treated. Results usually improve more around the 6 month mark and last for a full year or more.

The ideal candidate is someone between 30 and 65 that is experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity. Results will not be as drastic as someone who receives a surgical facelift, but it is the top non-invasive option for patients that are not ready for surgery. Ultherapy has an astounding 95% satisfaction rate among patients one year after treatment. 

The cost and number of treatments will depend on your skin laxity and what areas you are wanting to treat personally. Our team will walk you through the entire process during your initial consultation and create a personalized treatment plan for you.

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
