Age-associated skin laxity contributes to worsening of cellulite appearance. This study evaluated the effects of microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V; Ultherapy) in combination with diluted calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA; Radiesse) on cellulite appearance and on neocollagenesis. METHODS: Twenty women (18-55 years old) with skin laxity and moderate-to-severe cellulite on the buttocks and thighs were retrospectively enrolled. MFU-V was applied using 4 and 7 MHz transducers (25 lines/transducer/site) and immediately followed by subdermal CaHA injection (1 ml/buttock or thigh)...

BACKGROUND: Aging of the face, neck, and décolletage is a multifactorial process involving epidermal photodamage and loss of soft tissue and bony volume. Multilevel rejuvenation of these areas can be obtained by enhancing volume restoration, neocollagenesis, and tissue contraction with combined efficacy of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and microfocused ultrasound (MFU, Ultherapy) treatments. METHODS: The authors reviewed the use of PLLA and MFUs as collaborative modalities to improve the appearance of the face, neck, and décolletage...

Microfocused ultrasound (MFU) has been recently developed to meet the ever-growing public demand for achieving significant, noninvasive skin lifting and tightening. MFU can be focused on subcutaneous tissue where the temperature briefly reaches greater than 60°C, producing small (<1 mm(3)) thermal coagulation points to a depth of up to 5 mm within the mid-to-deep reticular layer of the dermis and subdermis. The intervening papillary dermal and epidermal layers of skin remain unaffected. The application of heat at these discrete thermal coagulation points causes collagen fibers in the facial planes such as the superficial musculoaponeurotic system and platysma, as well as the deep reticular dermis, to become denatured, contracting and stimulating de novo collagen...

INTRODUCTION: Facial aging is a gradual process that involves a complex interaction of multiple factors including cutaneous photodamage and laxity, subcutaneous tissue volume loss, and bony resorption. These features have all been show to significantly improve with intense pulsed light (IPL), microfocused ultrasound (MFUS, Ultherapy), and poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). METHODS: To review the use of IPL, MFUS, and PLLA in combination with the treatment of facial aging...
