Dr. Jean Chapman did a lot of research on the technology behind Ultherapy before she decided to offer it to her patients. One of the reports that really impressed her was the blind study performed by a group of dermatological surgeons in Chicago. Their objective was to assess the ability of a nonablative, ultrasound skin tightening procedure for a brow-lift in the context of a procedure for treating the full face and neck.
They concluded that the procedure was safe and effective for facial skin tightening. A single ultrasound treatment of the forehead produced brow height elevation.
